Online casinos and gambling have been around for many years now, but they never get old and their popularity is still as high as in the beginning, if not even higher, with all the additions and the latest improvements that the industry has registered. A great example to that extent is the introduction of live dealer games, such as live roulette or Sic Bo or Baccarat and more. It’s not difficult to understand the evolution of the online casino industry and how it moved to be a facsimile of a real, brick and mortar casino, but there is more to it than just that, in the sense of there being two major reasons for which the online gambling industry recognized the need for live Blackjack or roulette or any other game for that matter. Most of the platforms, if not even all, have complied with this need and now the vast majority of casinos on the web provide this opportunity for gamblers.
As mentioned above, there are two major reasons for which online casinos have introduced live roulette and other such games as part of their range of provisions and the first one is players’ experience. When online gambling first showed its teeth, players were happy to have this convenience of gambling and playing their favorite games from the comfort of their own homes or offices or wherever they were, so they didn’t pay much attention to details. However, when that initial thrill went away and the possibility of gambling online, anytime, anywhere wasn’t such a novelty anymore, gamblers began picking on the differences between an online casino and a brick and mortar one, as if they suddenly realized how much of a difference it is between live Blackjack and a computer generated game, for example. As a result, people started to get bored of playing against the computer, feeling no thrill, no adrenaline as one would when facing his or her dealer, so online casinos filled that gap with live dealers, allowing gamblers to experience the same atmosphere and action as in an actual casino.
The second reason for which the introduction of live dealers in online casino games was so important is the novelty. As already said, gambling has been around for decades and online gambling for years, but this is a field that needs innovation and novelty to keep players engaged. The rules of the games did not change and will not change, but the format can, so online casinos saw this opportunity to bring their customers something new, through live streaming of actual casino tables. So, even if gamblers wouldn’t have felt the need for live roulette or live Blackjack as a way to experience the adrenaline and excitement to play against a real dealer, casinos would have still come up with this feature as a way to keep them entertained and offer a piece of novelty in a field that has been around for so long. First, it was the possibility of joining live rooms, which meant playing with other online gamblers who were at their houses or offices, and then came the possibility of live dealers, which means playing with or against people who are actually at the brick and mortar casino.
