Real Time Gambling: An Introduction
There are basically two kinds of casinos – live and online casinos. Live casinos are traditionally played in real-life casinos with dealers and other gaming professionals who can make you feel like you’re actually playing in a real casino. Live casinos are usually powered by proprietary software and occasionally use the use of actual “live” dealers, who try to realistically simulate the “live casino” experience to visitors. Online casinos, on the other hand, have no live dealers and are typically programmed by web-hosting services (usually inexpensively) using either free or paid online casino templates.
Both types of live casino games offer players the same basic casino experience: betting, and betting some more. They both require careful consideration and a bit of strategy. In live casino games, it’s important to remember that the house always wins. The goal is to beat the house, so gamblers should bet only when they have a strong feeling that they will walk away with a net profit, even if it’s after paying the “burn” – the house’s commission. With online live casino games, the goal isn’t to beat the house, but rather to beat the dealer. Although there isn’t physical human contact between players and the dealer, the potential for human error is greater because there are often multiple people playing the game at once, all of whom have a definite point of view and can consciously or unconsciously influence the outcome of the game.
If you’ve never gambled at a live casino before, I suggest you try it. I’ve been to many places where they have the games all to themselves, and they’re always interesting, creative, and lively – with regular customers walking around, giving advice, and just generally having a good time. And don’t let the word “gambling” fool you: the real-time gaming experience is also very strategic, and players can employ all of their mental and emotional tools to win. There’s no need for luck, and the house always wins…
