Live casino is a new way of enjoying your favorite games in real time. The experience is streamed directly to your device and you interact with other players in a similar manner to how it would be done in a physical casino. This is a revolutionary technology that has changed the way online gambling is perceived.
In order to make it work, there are several factors that have to come together. First, the dealer is a real person and they are based in a studio or land-based venue. They are equipped with cameras that can be seen by players on their devices and they have a computer that records the game. There is also a software room that converts the video feed into data that can be transmitted to the player’s device.
This data is sent to the player’s device using a GCU (Game Control Unit) that is a small box not much bigger than a shoebox. The croupier in charge of the table is connected to this device and it is responsible for encoding the video broadcast. The live stream is then sent to the player who can interact with the dealers and other players via the chat feature.
A good live casino will have a variety of different tables with varying stakes. This will allow players of all budgets to enjoy the experience and there are often high roller tables for those who want to take their gaming to the next level. In addition to this, some sites offer a social aspect to their live games where players can interact with each other and share their experience.
The most common games available at a live casino are roulette, blackjack and poker. In the case of roulette, you can normally play European and American roulette as well as special titles such as Quantum Roulette or Lightning Roulette. These games add a touch of theater and can increase your excitement levels even more by watching the ball roll down the track before nestling into one of the pockets.
With blackjack, you can usually find a few variants such as Speed Blackjack and Infinite Blackjack. These are designed to replicate the experience of playing in a brick and mortar casino as you can tell the dealer whether you want to hit or stick. In addition to this, there are also tables with a range of different bet limits to cater for players of all levels of experience.
Other games that you can play at a live casino include baccarat and keno, but they are not as common as the aforementioned games. At Unibet, we have some unique games such as Monopoly Live which is a casino version of the iconic board game or Football Studio where you can bet on which team will be dealt the best cards. There is also a full range of side bet games such as Side Bet City and Lightning Dice to give you something extra to get excited about.
