Being able to play quality casino games online from the comfort of your own home revolutionised how we think of the modern casino. Since the mid to late nineties, millions of people all over the world have been able to enjoy casino games right on their computer screens, even though they live thousands of miles from their nearest brick and mortar casino.
However, the first generation of online or ‘virtual’ casino table games like roulette, blackjack, baccarat, and poker, were not all that convincing. Sure, you could play them, they were functional and a lot of punter won a tidy sum on a good session, but realistic? Not really!
To get as close to a true brick and mortar casino experience as possible, live online casino UK platforms such as those available through Playtech and other top providers began to appear on the web.
How Do Live Dealer Casino Games Work?
Conquer Casino features an extensive range of the latest in live dealer casino games including live roulette, blackjack, baccarat and poker. Now players all over the UK, as well as the rest of the world, can get a proper real life casino gaming experience, and all still from the privacy of their own homes.
Visiting a real casino can be expensive when you consider the costs involved in travel, food and accommodation (the further away, the more expensive it becomes). On the other hand, playing virtual casino games that are entirely software-driven can become stale and boring.
Live dealer casino games are the perfect compromise between the two. You can visit a ‘real’ casino, see real live dealers and croupiers in action, and not have to worry about travelling anywhere, getting dressed up, safety, and all of the other concerns that go with it.
Live casino games are still software based, but only as far as the user interface is concerned. You still get the real live feeling of an actual casino. The way it works is rather ingenious and it has only really become a reality with the increase in bandwidth and real time video streaming technologies.
Big casino software provides like Playtech and Evolution Gaming own massive, state of the art studios, where they can actually build the interior of a brick and mortar casino. These interiors feature real wood and baize covered tables for blackjack, roulette, baccarat, and several poker games. Games are then streamed live and in real time to your computer via the live dealer platform.
The tables are controlled by highly trained elegant and beautiful dealers, each a specialist in his or her own field. You get to watch the dealers through a sophisticated user interface which you can access from your computer.
The interface allows all the same functionality that your regular virtual gaming interface allows, including changing your chip size, in-game betting options and so on. However, there are a few awesome extras which includes being able to actually interact with your live dealer, as well as other players at the table (depending on the interface). You can even tip your live dealer after a good hand, which can really enhance your overall experience in live casino gaming.
