Live Casino Games

While traditional online casino games are certainly popular, they really don’t compare to the excitement and intensity of playing at a land-based establishment.  But this is where live casinos can make all the difference. Live casino games offer players the same highly immersive gambling experience with the added benefit of being instantly available on desktop or mobile devices. It’s like being in a real brick and mortar venue with the freedom and convenience to play against a real dealer anytime, anywhere.

For those who are new to the concept, we’ve taken a look at all the most popular live casino games on offer.

Blackjack

Blackjack is undoubtedly one of the most popular card games in the world. Using a combination of skill, strategy and luck, players face off against the dealer in a battle of wits and courage. The live version of Blackjack is played in exactly the same way as the traditional version. Streamed in real time from a professional studio, the gaming results are produced with real cards on a real table while being conducted by a real dealer.

Up to 7 players can join a table and the live casino software provides the option to bet behind at players already seated at a table. Each player is dealt his or her own set of cards that compete against the dealer’s hand. Popular options include classic Blackjack and Blackjack Party.

Roulette

Roulette is another land-based classic that is now being enjoyed with renewed enthusiasm. The action plays out on a real table with an authentic wheel and streamed in HD. The integrated virtual betting software allows for real-time wagering on all the full range of inside and outside bets.

Depending on the software provider, multiple cameras are used to catch every second of the action, one facing the dealer, one facing the table and on focused in on the wheel. Popular options include classic European Roulette, Double Ball, Duel Play and Lightning Roulette.

Baccarat

Punto Banco Baccarat is fast becoming one of the most popular live casino games in Ireland. Unlike the land-based Chemin de Fer version, this version is played against the house with players having the option to bet on the banker hand, the player hand or on a tie.

In most versions, up to 7 players can join a table with different tables for both high and low limit options. In some cases, side bets can be placed at the start of each round. Popular options include Classic Punto Banco, Speed Baccarat and Baccarat Squeeze.

Poker

Poker is the most widely played card games on the planet, and is one with the most variations. Live casino Poker is not played in the traditional pot-style method, but rather where you compete against the house. The same basic rules apply, but after the ante bet is placed, each player is dealt their own set of cards and the dealer also receives a set. The dealer’s cards are dealt face down with one card facing up. The aim is to beat the dealer’s hand by creating a higher-ranking hand using the cards you are dealt.

Popular options include Hold’em, Caribbean Stud, 3-card, Ultimate Texas Hold’em and Russian Poker.

Lobby-Style Entertainment

Aside from the standard card and table titles, there are plenty of exciting live casino games based on popular lobby style and virtual sport variants. A good example is Evolution Gaming’s Dream Catcher. This Money Wheel game simply involves betting on the numbers marked around the large spinning wheel. If the wheel lands on your number, you win the amount multiplied by your stake.

Other popular lobby-style options include Dragon Tiger, Golden Ball and Football Studio. With so much choice on offer there really is something for everyone to enjoy in this format!
