    Why Live Gaming is The Future of Online Casinos

    If you’re a fan of online casino gaming, you’ll know that technology has paved the way for some incredible new and classic games. Even better than this, is the live casino.

    Here, you’ll find state-of-the-art cameras and software that live streams real-life dealers as they host all your favorite games from a specially designed studio. A step up from the standard digital games.

    But what makes live casino gaming so great? And why is it the future of online gaming – and perhaps gaming in general? Read on to find out!

    Authentic Casino Gameplay

    The great thing about live casino, is that unlike digital games, they’re hosted by a real-life, professionally trained dealer. This enables you to experience all the wonders of casino gaming from the comfort of your own home.

    All you need is internet access and a compatible device, and you’ll be able to play a variety of games in real-time. A live chat feature keeps the social aspect of the casino alive, as you can communicate with the dealer and other players during gameplay.

    Advanced Technology

    This is all done using advanced technology, with multiple HD cameras capturing gameplay from all-angles, and Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software picking up each tiny detail of gameplay. The Game Control Unit (GCU) transfers gameplay into data, which is displayed on your screen as it happens, so you can truly enjoy the complete, authentic gameplay experience.

    A variety of games

    The live casino plays host to a variety of games, from classic table games like Blackjack, Roulette and Poker, to a whole load of new adventures like gameshow-inspired Deal or No Deal Roulette, or even Monopoly Live.

    There are also themed variations of the classic games, like Quantum Roulette, for example.

    Virtual Reality

    And as for the future… well, it’s clear that even live casino games have come a long way since they first made a debut in the mid-2000s. Now, you can play some games, like Gonzo’s Treasure Hunt Live, in Virtual Reality (VR), fusing standard gameplay with augmented reality for an even more authentic experience.


    Who knows what the future holds for online casino gaming? But, as technology continues to evolve further, and VR becomes even more accessible, perhaps we’ll be walking around real-life casinos from the comfort of our own homes in no time…
