Live Dealer Casino Pros and Cons

LIVE CASINOS PROS CONS

There is no argument that casinos that have live dealers have proven to be immensely popular. Those who enjoy the experience would tell you that it adds another dimension to the games, and a thrilling dimension at that.

Some might feel differently, however. In point of fact, there are those who are not so crazy about playing on a computer against folks in a brick-and-mortar setting.

So it may be appropriate for us to discuss a list of live dealer casino pros and cons that newcomers might find useful.

Live Dealer Casino Pros

It is the closest thing you can get to being in a “real-life,” brick-and-mortar casino and still be in the comfort of your own home. That is because you are literally beamed right into the action. The dealers are not “anime” creatures – they are real people, on the job, and they respond when they come to your table. There is also interaction available between yourself and the table.

Variations Of Games Like Blackjack, Roulette And Baccarat

* There are some very innovative games to take part in. That includes variations of games like blackjack, Roulette, and baccarat. These particular variations make the games a little different and present a unique challenge. And you may have a better chance to win with some of them.

In certain cases, the company that has designed the casino has also devised of the new variations, and this will be unique to them. So it is indeed a special opportunity to be able to play them.

Some of the games are of the Asian variety, and while they may be trendy in places like Macau, it may be the first time for American players to experience them.

* There is a great visual quality to the action. These live dealer casinos spare no expense in terms of bringing high-definition video to the table, and so there is the feeling that you are right there, in front of a dealer, taking part in the action. With split screens and other technological devices, you are getting both a “long view” as well as the close-up view on these games.

Interaction

* The interaction between yourself and the game apparatus – whatever game that happens to be – is a tremendous change of pace, and adds greatly to the richness of your casino experience. Just a few years ago, the idea of being able to play against live dealer would have been nearly unthinkable, but they have brought customers into the fold as intimately as possible, and the great thing is that it won’t stop here; the better the technology gets, the better the experience will be. Who knows – someday you might even get waitress serving you drinks while you play against the live dealers.

* You can avoid playing against what is known as the Random Number Generator, or “RNG” for short. This is what typically governs all the casino games that are played online; that is, when they are not being administered by real human beings i a real environment. The RNG programs the house to pick up a certain “hold” percentage automatically. But when you’re against games dealt by real people, you are going to have a better chance to win, especially when you are talking about a game like blackjack.

Live Dealer Casino Cons

* Please remember that when you are playing in the live dealer casino environment, you are playing at a different pace then you are playing in the regular online casino that can be played through the browser or a download.

And considering that to be the case, you have to recognize that the pace is slower when you are involved in the “live” game. That is because the people who are working the game naturally do not operate with the same swiftness as a computer program.

Waiting For The Live Dealer To Place Your Bet

Furthermore, they are actually operating slower because they have to be; they have to wait for your bet, in fact setting a clock for that to happen, as well as certain decisions at the table. And then they want to make absolutely sure that everybody has a chance to see the result. That would quite naturally necessitate conducting this game in a fashion that is a lot slower.

We point all of this out to illustrate that the way the casino games are conducted in a live dealer casino environment may not be to the liking of those players who want to play as many rounds as possible in the least amount of time, or those who want to have control of the game right at their fingertips.

An Intimidation Factor

* There is a certain intimidation factor here that could come into play. After all, we are talking about live human beings conducting a game. And there are some players who become a little uncomfortable with that.

And that isn’t really an unreasonable statement. One of the reasons that, say, slots is such a popular game in land-based casinos is that it does not require any real interaction between the player and the house. So there might be a natural aversion on the part of a lot of people to having to interact with other humans – and we are talking about people who they can actually see – in the course of playing a casino game.

Most Of The Games Are New To Customers</h4<

* Some of the games that are featured in this environment are going to be new to most customers. As we mentioned above, that can indeed be a positive thing; indeed, a live dealer casino “pro.” But there is a flip side as well. When encountered with a new game, or a variation they have not played before, some customers may not be very interested, perhaps because they are unfamiliar with it, or don’t want to go through the time to learn all about it, or simply don’t want to go through any new “experiences.” Thus, it can become a live dealer casino “con,” because it might keep some customers away.

Live Dealer Casinos Minimums And Maximums

* Sometimes there is a tendency for live dealer casinos to have minimums that are higher than what is found in an automated casino. That will put more of the customer’s bankroll at risk. Some customers are averse to that. The “live” environment is one that affords a unique experience, and thus, carries with it a premium, because the casino operator that features it has to lease the live casino from one of the companies – the “vendor,” if you will – that produces it.

If you haven’t gotten involved yet, maybe the best thing you can do is navigate you way over to a live dealer casino, play for a while and then evaluate whether you land on the “pro” side or the “con” side when it comes to this subject.

Live American Roulette Versus European Roulette

Live american european roulette

Invariably the discussion about roulette, especially as we look at it in the live casino atmosphere, comes down to being one of two different versions of the game – either live American roulette or live European roulette.

The games look somewhat the same and they play somewhat the same, but there is a difference in what it means to the player. Who would ever think that having one fewer slot in a wheel would reduce the house advantage over the player by almost half?

That is indeed the fact. But just in case you were not aware, the European version is the one that has a single zero, while the American version has both a single and double zero.

So what’s the background?

Well, if you really want to go back to the beginning, the game can be traced to the mid-1700s in North America, and that was actually in Canada – in Quebec specifically. And those who have researched the matter have seen a reference to roulette in the laws that existed in the province at the time, since the game was actually banned. And maybe you even go back a century prior to that, as Blaise Pascal invented the basis for the modern roulette wheel.

Also, if you were wondering, there were 18th Century wheels that had both a zero and a double zero. So this is by no means a recent development.

The single zero became a favored way to go, and that was simply because the house had only one slot, and therefore there were better odds for players. This, by all accounts, originated in 1842 with the Blanc brothers – Francois and Louis – who owned a casino in Hamburg, then moved over to Monaco when Germany outlawed gambling. So at the casino at Monte Carlo, the single-zero roulette wheel really established itself.

For those who like to mythologize, Francois Blanc is said to have made “a deal with the devil” for unlocking all the secrets of the game of roulette, since, as the story goes, he pointed out to Lucifer himself that the numbers, as they are added up on the roulette wheel, came out to 666. And whether you had a single zero or double zero, that total was not affected.

The French, who were much more familiar with the double-zero wheel, brought that over to America, and eventually onto riverboats that had gambling. To make a long story short, it eventually became the standard in the United States.

But as online casinos became established, that kind of thing mattered less. All of it could be delivered through the same outlet, in the same space, and whether there was enough room at the tables was irrelevant.

And with live dealer casinos gaining more and more popularity, live American roulette and live European roulette have both been equally accessible to the general public.

Which version’s better for the player?

When conducting casino games, the house customarily operates at an advantage. The game of roulette is no exception.

Plainly and simply, there is a big difference between the house advantage when it comes to live American roulette and live European roulette.

You see, the individual numbers a player can place a wager on in roulette go from one (1) to 36. The payout is 35-1 on any of these numbers. That sounds like it’s paying out at true odds, right?

Well, not exactly.

In the European game, since there is that single zero, the real odds of hitting any individual number are 36-1. In the American game, with zero AND double-zero, the odds are 37-1. So you are getting “the worst of it.” That is no big surprise, actually, as these games are obviously being run by the casinos for profit.

So when you calculate it, the disadvantage for the player in live European roulette is 2.70%, while the house edge in live American roulette is 5.26%. It would behoove you to look to the European version, which, logic would dictate, makes it more possible to win.

The Procedure

Roulette (the name means “little wheel” in French, by the way) is a very simple game to understand, from a procedural standpoint. The players pace their bets down on the “layout,” and a “croupier” spins the wheel going on the way, and then sets a little along a track that runs up near the perimeter. At some point, the ball is going to stop spinning and land somewhere in the wheel. And whatever slot it wins up in, well, that’s the result.

And that result can mean any number of things, depending on what kind of wager you’ve placed at the table. You’ve got plenty of options.

Okay, so what can we bet on?

Regardless of whether you are playing the American or European version of the game, you can make the same kinds of bets.

Let’s go over some of them, starting with those known as the “inside bets,” which are placed on the inside part of the layout, which contains all the individual numbers, including 0 and 00, in addition to 1 through 36:

* Straight Bet — This one is self-explanatory. You are wagering on any given number coming up. And as we mentioned, the odds against hitting are either 36-1 or 37-1, depending on which version of the game you are playing. You will be paid 35-1.

* Split Bet — Here you’ll bet on two numbers that are adjacent to each other. So the chip will be dragged or placed to a place that is straddling those two numbers. Payout is 17-1.

* Street Bet — This is a bet on any three consecutive numbers on the table. If any of them hits, you win. The payout here is 11-1.

* Line Bet – In this one, you are placing a bet on six numbers at a time, which take up two rows on the table that are adjacent to each other. This can also be referred to as a “Double Street Bet.” This pays 5-1.

* Corner Bet — Here you would bet on four numbers that meet up at one corner inside the layout. This pays off at 8-1 odds.

Then there are the “outside” bets, which are placed outside of the standard payout:

* High or Low — These are bets on whether the number will be in a group that is classified as “Low” (1 to 18) or “High” (19 to 36). It pays off at even money.

* Even or Odd — Self-explanatory. Here you’re wagering on whether the number is even or odd. Again, this is even money.

* Red or Black — Each of the numbers have a corresponding color – red or back. This wager, with an even money payout, seeks to win on the color that is chosen.

* Dozen Bet — With 36 numbers, they are divided into three “dozens.” So with this wager, you’d be able to bet on the “1st 12,” “2nd 12” or “3rd 12.” That means either 1-12, 13-24 or 25-36. And it pays out at 2-1 odds.

* Column Bet — Here you’re betting on anything that falls within an entire column of numbers on the layout, as the chips go right at the bottom of the column itself. There are three different columns to choose from. It’s a 2-1 payout.

One thing that is very important to remember about these proposition bets is that if the number comes up zero (0) or double zero (00), as would be the case with live American Roulette, the wager automatically loses.

Keeping up with the numbers

You may have witnessed on occasion when going into a casino, that the more enthusiastic people at the roulette table are keeping very close track of which numbers are coming up. And that is not cheating in the least; in fact, the casino will provide you with a pencil and paper in order to help you track the numbers.

If you are one of these people, you will be happy to know that when you play live American roulette or live European Roulette, all of that “work” is done for you. First of all, in the interface, you will get to see the wheel spinning up close within the screen. Everything is happening in real time, so you are well aware of what the results are.

And those results are posted so that you can see them – at least the recent ones. You’ll see the numbers that have come out on the wheel, along with where they fit in among the propositions everyone can bet on, whether they are the Red or Black; first, second or third dozen, High or Low. If you have a theory or a “system,” you’ll have some data right at your disposal.

The keys to getting the most out of roulette may be bankroll management. If you are looking for the “big score,” you’ll probably gravitate more toward the individual number bets (the “straight” bets). If you prefer to keep yourself alive for a while, then the “outside” bets, which are even money propositions (or perhaps a little less) might be your way to go.

Either way, live American roulette or live European roulette is not a bad place for you to be.

How To Play Baccarat For Beginners

how to play baccarat for beginners

In this article about how to play baccarat for beginners, we are discussing strategies for land casinos, playing video baccarat online and on the go, plus playing at live dealer casinos. We hope that you can discover helpful hints for beginners and advanced players to learn to gain the advantage and how to play baccarat with our betting strategies, tips, and tricks.

Made famous as James Bond’s game of choice, baccarat is one of the world’s most popular casino table games. It has a reputation in the West as a sophisticated and glamorous game, which can sometimes intimidate new players, but it’s really very simple. In fact, it’s not a stretch to say it’s basically a coin flip, at least at most tables.

In the variant seen most commonly at live casinos, each player betting on the game picks either the current player (the one who has placed the largest wager) or the banker to have the better hand. That’s basically all there is to it. The winner is simply the one who has a total hand value that is closest to nine when the values of the cards are added together.

Baccarat: How To Play, And How To Gain An Advantage

The only thing that complicates ‘how to play baccarat for beginners’ is that it uses a card value system that is unusual. The face value of the dealt cards are added together, but unlike other games, the “face cards” (such as the jack and queen) are not advantageous as they have no value, nor does the 10. The only face card to have a value in baccarat is the ace, which is worth one point.

The customs of play are also slightly unusual at some tables in that players take turns acting as the live dealer, which means they deal themselves a hand that actually represents the casino. However, though the dealer is acting on behalf of the casino in these situations, they are not responsible for paying out anyone else’s wagers and are free to bet against the casino. The casino has a representative who sits at the table and handles wagers.

Live Dealer Baccarat Rules And Customs

Up to 14 people can play at any given time at most live baccarat tables. Unless a casino dealer is handling each hand, the deal rotates between players, but no one is obligated to deal if they do not want to; they can simply pass the shoe to the next person. The current dealer is the “banker” for the purposes of the game in these situations, though as mentioned earlier, they have no stake in the wagers of the casino or other players.

Players place their bets before the deal, and the player who bets the most has two cards dealt with them. They will compete with the cards that the banker holds. In addition to betting on one of these two to win, players can bet on a “push,” or that the player and dealer will end up with the same total. If players are dealing, the deal stays with the current dealer until they lose a hand, and then it is passed on.

If the player has an eight or nine total value dealt in the first two cards, this is a “natural” and they automatically win. If they have six or seven, they are required to stand. They automatically get a third card if their value is five or less. The value of the combined cards “wraps around” when it hits double digits, so to speak, so for example, if the current total value is 5 and a 9 is drawn, the total value would then become 4.

How To Play Baccarat For Beginners With Side Bets

Some tables have added side bets to spice the game up (and increase its profitability). The two most common are called Dragon and Panda. A Dragon bet means choosing the specific winning total along with which side will win, and a Panda bet pays a bonus if the winning side takes three cards and wins with a specific amount (sometimes specifically an eight).

Live Dealer Baccarat Strategy

There really is no strategy to how to play baccarat for beginners; the outcome is entirely in the luck of the draw. The smartest bet is on the banker (dealer) on any given hand, however, as they have a slightly higher probability of winning. Why is that? As in real money blackjack, it is because the banker gets to act last. The banker stands on a value of seven to nine. With less than that, however, what they do depends on the final hand the player winds up with. The rules that govern how they draw are optimized to give them the best chance of winning in that situation. Therefore, bankers win over players by a small margin, usually less than a full percentage point.

If it were this simple, however, players would quickly bankrupt casinos by doing nothing but betting the banker every time. So, in order to retain their omnipresent advantage, the casino takes a commission on winning banker bets; the industry standard is 5%. This amount more than covers whatever the expected advantage is on banker bets and thus makes the casino money consistently over time.

Even with the commission, the best bet is still on the banker, but the difference in odds becomes so close it is almost a coin flip at most tables. Since pushes and side bet wins are much more rare, betting on these pushes the house edge up into the double digits in all cases. This also only applies to those looking to win money. Casinos will often reduce or even eliminate comp points for banker bets (though if they entirely eliminate comps they will often also remove the 5% commission on these bets). Restricting comps in this way dissuade teams of people from betting each side on every hand and then splitting the comp haul after breaking relatively even.

Players can gain an advantage at live dealer baccarat in a number of ways that are considered “advantage play” by the house, and potentially can get one asked to leave the premises if they are noticed. The classic means is to notice a small discrepancy in decks of cards, such as nicks or printing abnormalities, that clue the player in to their value before they are turned over. These situations are extremely rare, however, and when they happen there is often a dealer working in collusion with outside parties. Some players also engage in card counting based on the placement of the “cut card” (which signals the dealer to cut the deck), which becomes easier to do the less deeply it is placed in the deck.

The Final Word For Players

Baccarat is unusual among casino games in that it has a built-in bet that is always favorable to the player, but the advantage is so slim that players should not expect to consistently win money with it due to variance. The appeal of live baccarat is more in the social aspect, with a large group of people gathered around the table interacting and the ability to play for long periods without losing large amounts of money and without having to constantly focus on strategy and the actions of other players.

How Will Live Dealer Games Affect The Online Casinos In PA?

live dealer games online casinos

When online gambling became legal in New Jersey, there were not a large selection of good online casino games available to play. Over time, New Jersey casinos make deals with software providers. Ultimately, this enables them to offer better games on mobile Smartphones and tablets. By the time casinos in PA were legal in July 2018, the NJ software providers already launched their live dealer games. However, there are no live dealer games currently available at the casinos in PA. So, what’s going on?

Will Live Dealers Affect The Online Casinos In PA Positively Or Negatively?

In New Jersey, it takes about three years for the online casinos to link up with software providers that offer live dealer games. However, it takes almost two more years from these real money games to become popular. Now, residents of the Garden State can enjoy bacarrat, craps, hold’em’ sic bi, roulette, and blackjack against dealers on the go. Now that real money gambling is legal in Pennsylvania, the experts predict that live dealer games will be in much stronger demand faster.

Learn About The History Of Live Dealer Casino Games In The United States

Despite people’s perception of the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act of 2006 (UIGEA), The Garden State legalizes real money poker and online casinos in November of 2013. However, it takes until August 2016 for Golden Nugget to partner with software provider Ezugi. Ultimately, this enables The Golden Nugget to provider live dealer games to their players. While that was great for The Golden Nugget customers, these live versions of blackjack, bacarrat, craps, sic bo and roulette have been around European countries since 2012.

Depending on which country, we have seen Ezugi partner up with European online casinos to offer them the best real money games with live dealers. Having said that, it doesn’t take BetFair online casino to add live dealer games to their inventory in 2017. In 2018, PlayMGM, Party Casino and The Borgata follow along and offer these fresh new titles to their customers.

Does Evolution Have More To Offer Than Ezugi?

While Ezugi makes very good games with their gaming software, Evolution steps into the New Jersey gambling market. Ultimately, they partner up with the Hard Rock Casino in Atlantic City. Shortly after that, they open up their very own live dealer studio at that Atlantic City property. Shortly after that, Sugarhouse, Resorts and Mohegan Sun decide to partner with Evolution to offer their games.

Currently, more New Jersey online casinos offer games with live dealers than gambling sites that don’t. Remember, it took five years to get to this point.

Will Live Dealer Casinos Come To Pennsylvania Soon?

It hasn’t even been one year since Pennsylanvia legalized real money gambling in their state. However, experts predict that live dealer games will be in very high demand and come quicker. That said, not all of the online casino sites in Pennsylvania will want live dealer games (just like in New Jersey). However, Parx casino appears to advertise that they are already part of an online casino.

For New Jersey, it was harder leaping into the licensed and regulated US gambling market. However, states like Pennsylvania can learn from their mistakes. Furthermore, in PA, the real money gambling structure is very different. Moreover, it is in place to help contribute to the economy through tax. This is very different than how New Jersey taxes its online casinos. It appears that The Garden State taxes live casinos in New Jersey under three different categories.

For table games, they charge them sixteen percent. However, the online casinos have to pay a fifty-four percent tax rate on the slot machines. That said, in the land resorts, they can offset that by offering a different house edge. For example, a slot machine has much lower house advantages than table games. Therefore, it should be easier for the state to make money on the slot machines.

In contrast, the online casinos in PA appear to want to offer much more table games, including live dealers because they will pay a lower tax on them. Therefore, they have a much bigger incentive to get them in stock and spend money advertising them.
