Fun Facts About Live Dealer Online Games

It almost looks like a typo: live dealer online games. Is it live or online? The answer is both.

The games are now found at most online casinos that offer table games.

Traditional online table games are ones like blackjack and baccarat that pit the player against the computerized dealer. New live dealer games give those games an entirely new look and feel.

When a player clicks on a live dealer game – anything from blackjack to poker – that person then sees a live dealer in a studio in front of that table. It looks like any game in a land-based casino, with a dealer on one side of the table and the player on the other.

The dealers are in a studio, one that is regulated by a gaming commission and staffed with licensed card game dealers. The player can see the dealer, but the dealer can only see the player’s actions on the screen. The player is not visible to the dealer but can direct the action with screen options, i.e. deal, fold, draw, etc.

Since live dealer games are becoming so popular these days, let’s talk about some of the benefits and fun facts about these games, which can be found on casinos like Play Amo.

  1. You Can Pick Your Own Dealer

Most Canadian online casinos have several variations of every live dealer online game. This gives players many options to find a dealer they like.

For example, LeoVegas offers 29 versions of live dealer blackjack alone. If a player sits at “LeoVegas Live Blackjack 2” and doesn’t like the dealer – unlucky cards, irritating personality, etc. – the player can leave that table and take a seat at any of the other ones.

Most games also have a chat box so players can chat with one another and the dealer.

  1. Always Look for New Games

As live dealer games become more popular, studios can add more game variations and even completely new games.

CasinoChan has an ever-expanding list of live dealer games. A new turbo roulette game was just added recently, as were keno live and a game called Bet on Numbers, which resembles keno. Dream Catcher is operated by a live casino person, as is a simple game of Top Card.

The newest games include Side Bet City and Super Sic Bo, both likely to garner a solid following.

  1. Private Gaming

Many live dealer casinos in Canada will now display Chambre Séparée as a game.

The French term translates to private room. Players can dive into a private online casino room with premium blackjack and roulette tables. These are available on mobile devices and offer special promotions for those with distinct live dealer needs.

LeoVegas offers a special Chambre Séparée room with roulette and blackjack options. Roulette starts at $0.50 and blackjack at $5, but the tables are much more unique and even more professional than others.

  1. Authentic Experience

According to an inside source at Evolution Gaming – the top live dealer game provider in the world – a new Immersive live dealer game is on its way to the testing phase.

It will take a table at a real land-based casino and equip it with cameras at various angles. There will be seats available for live players who are physically in the casino, but online players can take virtual seats at the same table.

These Immersive games may be introduced first in America, specifically in New Jersey, but a successful trial period will lead to more online casinos partnering with brick-and-mortar casinos to offer the same. It could be the most innovative thing for online casinos since the debut of live dealers in the first place.

  1. Questions Welcomed

The best thing about live dealer games is the friendliness to new or beginning players.

New players to tables games can learn the basics as they play and ask questions of the dealers. For example, if a player wants to know if they can double down or split a hand of blackjack, they can simply ask and receive an answer.

  1. Mistakes Happen

Since the dealers are human, there will be mistakes. To err is human!

Sometimes, mistakes simply lead to a misdeal and the hand or spin must start over. Other times, the errors are funny, and the players and dealers laugh about them together.

Every once in a while, there is a dealer who quits during a game or simply starts laughing hysterically and cannot stop. Whatever the situation, it is often caught on video and posted on YouTube. A simple search brings up quite a few interesting videos.

Mostly, however, the errors are not drastic but amusing nonetheless.
