«Gambling With a Live Dealer in an Online Casino
In 2003 a revolutionary and mind-blowing change happened in the online gambling community – casinos offered ‘live’ games or gambling with live dealers. The idea was especially warmly greeted by gamblers who did not trust random number generators and casino software. Over the last 10 years there has been a dramatic increase in the speed of data transfer which, in turn, has improved the quality of sound and video, while new software has allowed players to control a wider ranger of different aspects of the game.
For better results players are strongly recommended to ensure compatibility of computers and connection to the Internet with stream video. As for hardware, it requires a 2.4 GHz processor Intel Pentium III, and not less than 1 GB memory. As for software, we recommend Microsoft Windows 2000 / XP or Vista operating systems. Graphics can be fully enjoyed with a SVGA card with a resolution of 800 x600 and higher, and with browsers, such as Internet Explorer 6.0, Mozilla 2, Chrome plus Adobe Flash Player 9. Your connection speed should be at least 256 kbps.
No wonder that practically all online casinos offering gambling with live dealers recommend players download and install a casino client which will provide a better video and sound.Live Dealer in Online CasinosAt present among live formats some of the most popular are special studios with stream audio and video, broadcasting live dealers via webcams.The majority of questions that arise involve two quite obvious categories – the human and the equipment. For instance, what happens if, during a game of Roulette, the ball lands on the floor, or, if during gambling the player experiences a temporary internet connection interruption. In that case every casino follows its own guiding principles developed for dealers and software. Testing of technologies that are used to provide live gambling with real dealers is the responsibility of TST and eCOGRA.
If (especially technical) problems arise, all major online casinos offer 24/7 technical support via phone, chat or mail.
Nowadays practically all largest online casinos offer a gaming section called ‘Live Dealer’, ‘Live Casino’ or ‘Video Casino’. There customers can find table games, such as Roulette, Blackjack and Baccarat where they can gamble with a real person or croupier who act on behalf of the casino. While making bets it’s possible to communicate with your fellow players in order to create even a more realistic gambling atmosphere.In spite of all its attractiveness gambling with a live dealer is not available in all online casinos; and one of the reasons is that this enjoyable addition to usual games is quite expensive.
