You may well have seen the term live casino when looking or reading about online casinos and wondered what it is as at first it seems an anomaly after all how can it be live if it is online. The truth is that that live casino at any online casino is only live in the context that what you are seeing is in fact happening at the same time but if you are expecting action from a real casino you will be disappointed. The live casino option at online casinos is nothing more than a live streaming of pictures via a webcam from a room or rooms in some European country and more often than not it is from a previous Eastern Bloc country where wages are lower than in Western Europe. The rooms themselves are generally well equipped but as only roulette and blackjack and occasionally baccarat are offered it does not require much in the way of equipment. The real advantage of playing at the live casino option is that it does away with the often disliked random number generators and it enables you to see the cards being dealt or the wheel being spun. Regular online casinos using random number generators for roulette have an issue with the ball seeming to take obscure movements which if the resulting number is loss for you can be quite disturbing even though there is no malpractice involved but of course live casino takes care of that. At the live casino option you also have the chance to chat with the dealers if you so desire which can make your online casino play a bit less of a lonely pastime. Nearly all online casinos have a live casino option these days and generally speaking the minimum stakes are a little bit higher than at the regular online casino.
