Live Casino offers a real-life casino experience that can be enjoyed from the comfort of your own home. Using state-of-the-art technology, Live Casino brings the experience of playing real tables to players, allowing them to place bets and chat with dealers in real time.
The games are streamed from specialized studios or land-based venues to your device, with the dealer appearing on screen alongside you. During the game you can communicate with the dealer through a chat window, and if other players are at the same table you’ll see them on your screen too.
You can choose which game you’d like to play at the bottom of your screen, and once you’ve selected your bet amount you can click on a betting button to make your bets. The dealer will process your bets until ‘no more bets’ is announced, and your winnings will be automatically deducted or awarded depending on the rules of the game you have chosen.
Behind the scenes, the games use specialised technology to record and transmit information, which includes the dealer’s gestures, facial expressions and even the sound of their breathing. This is all captured through a special video camera, and a piece of hardware called a Game Control Unit (GCU), which is about the size of a shoe box and without which the live casinos wouldn’t work.
