As you well know by now, the Playing 4 Keeps strategies are tried and tested in live casinos all over the world. The strategies are considered the best game plans for winning consistently at the tables. There’s also a new form of live casino that the strategies can be trialed on – live dealer casinos.
Advancements in live streaming technology have made it possible for iGaming platforms such as Full Tilt to offer live streamed action on desktop and mobile devices, managed by professionally trained croupiers and dealers. The very first live streamed casino was established back in 2006. However, inadequate streaming quality and unresponsive software made it difficult for iGaming brands to measure the demand for live streamed table games such as blackjack and roulette.
Fast forward to the present day and the iGaming sector has benefitted hugely from the growth of its live dealer casino arm. Rapid advancements in live streaming technology – including high-definition audio and visuals – as well as the ability to create consistent, cross-platform gaming experiences on all devices using HMTL5 technology, has cemented live casinos as a concept that is here to stay for the following reasons:
Ideal for those getting their first taste of how casinos work
If you have never visited a bricks-and-mortar casino before, the prospect of walking onto a casino floor can be somewhat daunting. With lots of noise, action and gaming terminology, it’s very much a sensory overload if you don’t know what you’re doing. That’s why live streamed casino games are a great starting point, giving players a chance to understand game dynamics and the table atmosphere from the comfort of their own home, without any embarrassment.
Accessible 24/7 whether you’re at home or commuting
Another key benefit to live casino gaming is that players now benefit from 24/7 access to iGaming platforms. Whether you’re at home on your laptop, on the early morning commute on your smartphone, or chilling in the garden with your tablet, it’s possible to enjoy your favorite table games any place and any time. With no travel expenses necessary to a bricks-and-mortar casino, it can be a better value option to get your casino entertainment fix. The professionally-trained dealers and croupiers are also hugely engaging and will respond in real-time to your messages submitted in the live chat box supplied.
Real-time game data at your fingertips
The concept of live streamed casino games is that it emulates the feelings of being sat at a real-life casino table. However, the added bonus of iGaming technology is that online players are armed with more real-time game data than any land-based casino. Whether you want to find out the last time your lucky number appeared on the roulette wheel, or your card options at the blackjack table, it’s all available at the touch of a button thanks to optical character recognition (OCR) technology. OCR helps to relay what’s happening in the live dealer studio on to the screens of each player in real-time, for a super-slick gaming experience.
Transparent and well-regulated form of iGaming
In the infancy of live dealer casinos, many online customers were wary of the legitimacy of online operations; even more so than land-based casinos. However, at the time of writing, the live dealer gaming industry is more regulated and transparent than ever before. Third-party iGaming organizations are drafted in to conduct tests to maintain the fairness of every type of live dealer game offered. Dealers also shuffle and deal genuine cards in real time, as well as burning the top card on each deck for improved integrity and to guard against card counting.
Benefit from exclusive reload offers and bonuses
It’s difficult to beat the engaging, thrill-a-minute world of live streamed casino games. Many people find it impossible to return to computer-generated casino games due to the lack of interaction with the dealers and fellow players. Not to mention the raft of exclusive deposit bonuses and reload offers dished out to regular live dealer casino visitors, enticing you to log in and play to win even more.
Live dealer casinos are the pinnacle of iGaming entertainment. The professional dealers and croupiers do a great job in creating a fun, relaxed gaming atmosphere. The dealers are also immaculately presented, creating that classic casino environment that we’ve all come to know and love.
