When online casinos first started out they were pretty primitive and rather limited in what they offered. However, as the industry has developed and grown into the multi-billion dollar industry it is today operators have been investing in making gaming as similar to playing in a bricks and mortar casino as possible. One of the ways they have done this is by offering live casino games.
A live casino offers a real-time experience in a studio with a real dealer and allows players to interact with them through the monitors that are set up in front of each table. This is a much more immersive experience and gives the feel of being there in Las Vegas. It can also help to make the games a lot more fun.
There are a lot of different things that go on behind the scenes to make a live casino work. For instance, a director is usually stationed nearby to oversee everything and make sure the experience feels as authentic as possible. There are also a lot of different cameras set up to capture the action from all kinds of angles.
The interaction between the actual dealers and the players is done through chat windows that are shown on a monitor in the studio where the game is being played. The messages that are typed into these chat windows are then displayed on a monitor within the line of sight of the dealer, so they can read them.
