Live dealer games are virtual table games run by real dealers, not computer software. It is synonymous with playing in a land-based casino where a real person shuffles and deals the cards in real-time. There are several variants of live dealer games: live blackjack, live baccarat, and roulette. So, to have a good gaming experience, you must have a good and stable internet connection with excellent speed.

How it works

Live dealer games give you access to your favorite table games wherever you are. The difference with other so-called classic online games is that these live games are not run by computer software, but by real dealers. So instead of using a random number generator to shuffle and deal the cards, the casino lets you see a real person in real-time.

When you connect to the casino via your support to access a live game, the software puts you in touch with a dealer. Generally, the filming is done in an establishment of the game publishers.

To have a good gaming experience, in addition to media such as your desktop computer, laptop, or mobile, you must have a good, stable internet connection with excellent speed so that you can follow the live stream. Thanks to the browser that you are used to using, you enter the platform, then you launch the live dealer game through video streaming software (normally to be downloaded).

You will see during the game a real croupier and a game table like in a land-based casino. Everything happens without lag. The dealer can also see you on a screen as well as the chips you place and everything you do through the webcam. You can even chat with him. Note that some platforms will offer you the possibility to choose the type of dealer you want to have.

Even if you will not find several variants like in physical casinos, you will still have the choice.

In live blackjack, you will have the opportunity to play against other players. As in a real casino, you will place yourself in one of the seven places on the table. However, the difference is in the time allowed to bet and the waiting time for decision making which are a little longer.

Baccarat is also very popular when it comes to live dealer games. In this case, you can choose to play alone against the dealer or with other players. Most casinos will offer you the traditional game, but you can access other versions by searching other sites.

If you like roulette, know that this entertainment can also be played live. From your home, you will see the croupier throw the cue ball and spin the wheel. The best casinos have in their toy library for live games at least one of the versions, namely American, Canadian or European.
