How Do Live Dealer Casino Games Work


Live dealer casino games are becoming increasingly popular at online casinos around the world. Since online casinos first opened, the most common obstacle for players has been trusting random number generators (RNGs).

We won`t get into the RNG discussion, but with live dealer games, RNGs are no longer a concern. Players can take the brick and mortar casino experience and bring it home by playing live dealer casino games.

If you`ve never played live dealer games, let me explain how they work.

The playing interface is similar to a traditional online casino game. The main difference is the game will broadcast a live real-time video feed showing the dealer dealing out the cards or spinning the roulette wheel.

When these games were initially released online casinos had plenty of problems. The videos were often blurry and even worse, the videos often lagged in the middle of a hand. Poor internet connections also caused quality problems.

Today, those concerns are alleviated because of the increase in technology power. Live dealer video feeds are now HD and as long as you have a good internet connection, the video feed will never lag.

You can even play live dealer games on your iPhone, iPad, Android or other smartphone/tablet. While most players opt to play on a bigger screen, it`s definitely possible to play live dealer games on mobile devices at most online casinos.

Casino vs. Studio

There are two ways to play live dealer casino games online.

Several brick and mortar casinos around the world offer a live feed directly into the casino. You can play live blackjack, live roulette and various other games in a brick and mortar casino from the comfort of your home.

The more common way to play live dealer games is through a studio. Online casino software providers set-up studios in Europe, Asia and other regions around the world and then offer live dealer casino games online.

Some online casinos have exclusive live dealer tables as well. The tables are branded specifically for the casino.

Live Dealer Online Casino Etiquette

It`s easy to forget that you`re playing with other real players on live dealer tables online. Since you are playing with other players there`s some basic etiquette that you should follow to ensure you don`t get in trouble.

If you don`t follow the rules there`s a chance your account could be banned from the online casino.

First off, you need to be respectful of the dealers. It`s easy to type something rude without thinking it through online, but disrespecting the dealers is the number one thing to avoid if you want to keep your account in good standing.

You also have to respect the other players at the table. It`s bad etiquette to complain about how another player plays his hand. If you don`t like how someone is playing, your best bet is to simply switch to another table.

While not required, players can tip the dealer and if you win a big hand, it`s common to tip a small amount just like you would do if you were playing in a brick and mortar casino.

Make sure you know the rules to the game you`re playing well before sitting down at a live dealer table. These tables aren`t the place to learn. You have a very short amount of time to place bets and act on your turn.
