Live Dealers Live GamesPublished June 15, 2005 by OCR Editor
More online casinos have begun incorporating Live Dealers in their games. These special brand games are aimed at providing the player with the most authentic, life-like gambling experience.
Through Live Dealers games, players can play such games as Baccarat, Roulette, Blackjack, Sic Bo and Caribbean poker with a real flesh and blood person that deals their cards or spin the roulette wheel for them. These are not your typical RNG-based games. Instead of using a Random Number Generator, the outcome of Live Dealers games is determined using a real deck of cards or the spin of an actual roulette wheel. The live aspect of these games refers to a live video and audio feed you can view and listen to, while playing the game. There are some variations of the Live Dealers software that in fact enable you to chat with your dealer and the other players at you table. You can actually hear the response of the dealer (assuming you have speakers).
In order to participate in Live Dealer games you don't have to plug a webcam to your computer nor do you have to install special plug-ins. The streaming of audio and video is done entirety by the Live Dealers software. This type of software is very similar to the ones you have been using so far, in the sense that you have to sign up, login and make an initial deposit into your online casino account before you can play for real money.
