The Future of Live Dealers: A Player's ViewPublished September 6, 2012 by OCR Editor
Live dealer casinos still going strong.
As OCR recently reported, All Slots Casino, one of the biggest and most popular online casinos in the industry, recently closed down its live dealer rooms. The move is sure to have disappointed some All Slots players, who can still console themselves with the fact that with over 400 Microgaming-powered slots, table and card games, All Slots is still among the best gaming venues on the net.Does Live Dealer Gaming Have a Future?
All Slots have confirmed that the closure is permanent, prompting speculation that live casinos have proven expensive to run. Given the high quality gaming experience most live dealer casinos provide, this may well be true. However, this decision by All Slots, presumably made in the best interests of its business and members, doesn't necessarily reflect the situation of live dealer casinos elsewhere. In fact, many casinos have recently made large investments in ramping up their live dealer provision.Positive Trends in Live Casino Gaming
A quick visit to the likes of 888, William Hill, Bet365, or Eurogrand shows that live dealer casinos are still going strong. Recent updates mean that Live Roulette, Baccarat, Blackjack and even Casino Hold'em games are widely available, with clearer images, better audio, and more reliable streaming than ever before. These casinos obviously consider live dealer gaming a key product in their range.Advantages of Live Dealer Games
From a player's point of view, live dealer casinos have so much to offer. After all, they're arguably the most life-like casino experience you can have online, given that you're playing with a human dealer and not a random number generator. The dealers are always very skilled, elegantly turned out, and sociable - an evening in their company is highly recommended!
