The Evolution of the Live Casino

When online gambling first appeared it was pretty two dimensional and quite limited, but as the industry has grown into the multi billion dollar global giant that it is today operators have spared no expense in making gaming more immersive. One of the most recent developments has been the live casino which brings an authentic Las Vegas experience to players from the comfort of their own homes.

Live casinos function in a very similar way to regular online casinos, with players placing bets by pressing buttons on their device screens. The difference is that a real dealer (using cards, a roulette wheel or some other game) determines the outcome rather than a random number generator. The dealer can also interact with the players which can make for a more social atmosphere.

The interface between the digital technology of the casino and the live action comes in the form of a small device called the Game Control Unit. This is about the size of a shoe box and every table has one. This piece of hardware is responsible for encoding the video broadcast and without it there wouldn’t be any live casino games.

Having certain live casino games reserved for VIP gamers has been explored as a way to increase the level of excitement available to this player segment, but it may be best to simply reserve a few and keep most of them open to all gamers. In this way, players will be encouraged to increase their wagering activity in order to qualify for VIP status sooner, rather than later.
