When online casinos first began they were pretty primitive, but as they have become the multi-billion dollar industry they are today operators have spared no expense in trying to make them as authentic as possible. One of the latest things they have done to this end is to introduce live casino games which combine real cards and chips with actual dealers and even an authentic roulette wheel. These games are played in HD video and allow you to interact with the dealer through a chat option, which can really add to the fun and excitement.
When you enter a live casino you will usually see the games displayed in the live lobby, in much the same way that you might scope out the games offered at a traditional casino. Once you have picked a game to play it will display a table and a number of betting options. You can then use the controls at the bottom of the screen to place your bets, which will be processed until a dealer announces “no more bets”.
In a live casino you can also play table games such as blackjack, roulette, and poker, although these are often only available on certain days and times. Most sites offer a huge variety of tables to choose from and many different rule variations as well. Some sites also host less popular table games such as baccarat, which can be a lot of fun to play.
