It was only a matter of time. At a time when technology seems to have no limits, the world of online gambling has taken a significant turn over the past few years. The latest in digital and video technology has allowed online casino software providers the opportunity to bring the look and feel of live casino or live dealer table games right to the player’s laptop, tablet or mobile device.
Answering the Skeptics
With hard earned cash on the table, there’s a tremendous amount of trust required for an online casino player to sign onto a website, deposit money and start playing casino games for real money. While the mystery of slots will never be revealed in either the real or virtual worlds, table games have been the subject of skepticism due to transparency issues.
In a brick and mortar casino, the player is given the opportunity to see how each turn of the card, spin of the reel or roll of the dice plays out visually. There’s very little opportunity for the casino to manipulate the outcomes, which has always resulted in a high level of confidence on the player’s behalf that the results are fair and random.
It has been a real challenge to create that same level of confidence in an online environment. While online betting sites might lay claim to being certified as fair and safe by reputable independent testing agencies, there’s always that tinge of doubt that plagues the industry, often times resulting in potential customers simply taking a pass. Technology has finally solved that problem with the advent of live online casino gambling.
About Live Casino Online Gambling
Through the use of cutting edge video and audio technology, software developers have developed a way to stream or broadcast live casino games right to the Internet. Better yet, they have developed a way for online players to interactively play by placing bets in a virtual environment while also being able to converse with the “beautiful” live dealers. With strategically placed cameras in a live casino or studio, players can now gamble with the same level of confidence that the results are fair as if they were standing right in the casino, right at the table.
Slowly, but surely, the number of games being developed with live dealer technology is growing. Initially, it was a small group of specialized software developers that were responsible for providing a majority of the live dealer gaming options to online betting sites. Just a few short years ago, much of the live gaming focus was placed on Baccarat, Blackjack and Roulette. As many of the world’s top software providers have started developing its own live casino games, the industry is seeing an expansion into other popular games such as Sic Bo, Pai Gow and Hold’em poker.
Eventually, all online casino table games will be of a virtual nature. With the technology in place, it seems unlikely that today’s sophisticated online player is going to choose the traditional online gaming environment when all integrity doubts can be removed by playing with and against live dealers. By essentially moving the live casino into someone’s living room, the industry is very likely to see continued growth in its customer base.
