What are live dealer casino games?
Live dealer games arrived in the United States in 2016 from New Jersey and have grown in popularity ever since. They represent an attempt to bridge the gap between conventional casino games and the online experience.
On the player side, the interface is quite similar to digital table games. Rather than using digital graphics and a random number generator, the game is streamed live from a studio with live dealers and real casino equipment. In most cases, players can interact with the dealer and sometimes even with each other using live chat.
Blackjack, baccarat and roulette are on the initial list of live dealer games that operators may offer. More games could be added later, the MGCB said. Elsewhere, Evolution also offers casino poker, Ferris wheel games and unique structured products such as game shows.
