Live casino and online casino do in some ways seem to be contradictory terms but in actual fact it is possible to play live casino in a number of online casinos including some of those that we carry here at casinos.ie. It is called casino live because the action is happening live and you are able to see the action through webcam pictures streamed live to your computer. There are in our opinion both advantages and disadvantages to playing at a live casino so you really have to make your own mind up about what is important for you. The biggest advantage of live casino is perhaps that it does away with the Random Number Generator which is used to select winning numbers on a normal online casino and although all the online casinos that we recommend have full and regular testing of their RNGs to ensure fair play there will always be those who believe they are rigged, especially if you hit a losing streak. Because the roulette wheel is spun in front of you and you can see the cards being dealt some may feel this is more secure. One of the disadvantages on the live casino is that only roulette and blackjack are always available and depending upon the online casino possibly also Baccarat or Sic Bo but here again, if those are your games then that is no problem. Generally speaking the minimum bet is also larger in a live casino environment than in the normal online casino but if you are not a minimum stakes casino player then again there is nothing lost. Both Paddy Power casino and Ladbrokes casino make selecting live casino very easy but with 888 casino or Party Casino you will have to download the casino software before you can play live casino. Live casino can be well worth a try and most online casinos will offer a sort of joining bonus for first time live casino players.
