Online casinos are starting to offer live dealer games to their customers. Depending on the casino, live games may be played over a television channel, or they may be exclusive to the casino’s website. Players can place bets using their mobile phones or television remote controls. Some online casinos also offer chat features for players to interact with other customers.
The technology that makes live casino games possible is advancing. Rather than relying on the video quality of a land-based casino, online casinos are investing in sophisticated cameras to create an authentic experience. The cameras are placed in strategic angles to capture the game and dealer. For example, one camera can capture a wide-angle view of the dealer while another one focuses on the actual game.
Live dealers are also available in popular games like blackjack. Live dealer studios typically have a limited number of seats, but casinos have added special features to allow players to participate even when the studios are full. One of the most popular features of these games is the Bet Behind feature, which allows a large number of gamblers to place bets on specific players. This feature allows a player to place a bet as much as $10 on a specific player, regardless of the player’s skill level.
Live dealer casino games are more expensive to operate and require more staff and technology. The average casino studio employs a cameraman, croupiers, and an information technology manager. In addition to that, a live studio typically requires three rooms.
