How do live casinos work?


Online casinos, or otherwise called live casinos, have a history of almost two decades, but they became increasingly popular over the past years.

Similar to the traditional centuries-old brick and mortar casinos, you can have plenty of games, betting, gambling activities and lots of fun when joining an online Live Casino also.

How Do Live Casinos Work

Today this phenomenon became an industry of billions of dollars around the world. The main advantage comparing to the other casinos is the fact that the players can bet from their home, and also they receive a better payback percentage than before.

And with the growing industry of the mobile devices, there will be more and more live casino games played at home instead of the brick-and-mortar casinos. 

But how do actually live casinos work, and in what extent are they different from the traditional casinos? Here are different aspects of the live casinos:

The technology

There isn’t such things like standard features in a live casino, instead each has as much technology as it is willing to invest. 

First thing to take into account when setting a live casino are the cameras. That is what makes it live, right? The entire concept of the online casino begins with the live streaming. The casino and the players must each have a camera for the chat between the gamblers and the dealer. Also, when playing roulette, there are cameras on the table and on the wheels.

Speaking of the wheel, this is also part of the technology. The wheels have built-in sensors with which the casino interfere, so that the game may be possible.

In the same category with the cameras, there are the monitors. The players can be seen on the screens, but there are though blind spots for the players to sit in if they don’t want to be seen. Through the monitor, the dealer has access to the players that are sitting at the virtual table. It is used also to gather the players’ comments, and also the bets they place.

Other important piece of technology is the Optical Camera Recognition, which records every small detail in the gaming room, including the shuffling of the cards, the spinning of the wheel, and the distribution of hands. 

Then there is the Game Control Unit (GCU), which it encodes the video broadcast. No live game can happen without a GCU. 

Beside this technology, there is still the casino studio, the camera operator, software room and analyst room. But all the needed technology may strongly vary depending on the casino.

The live dealer

As mentioned before, the online casinos also need a dealer, like the traditional ones. The dealers in live casinos still have to know and understand the rules of the game, because they are like a regular dealer in a casino. 

The physical transactions done by the real person dealer are converted into data through the software. Also, the dealer is still the one that determines the outcome, and not a pre-programmed computer. 

Licenses and laws

And there are also licenses and laws around the live casino industry. The players have to play with confidence that the live casinos are run by real and responsible operators. Another thing they must offer the players is the sense of a legitimate and honest company.

In this way, the online casinos have to be licensed by an appropriate authority. The authorities have strong rules and regulations, and the live casinos have to obey them.

Bottom line, whether you choose a traditional casino, or a live one, you must know that the experiences differ in the way you actually play the games, and in the way you interact with other people, but the fun, the games, and the bets are there whatever your choice would be.
