Live Casino is a special version of online casino games that let you connect to a real human dealer via a video link. You can play the game from a computer, mobile phone or tablet while using software to place bets and let the dealer know your decisions. It is a more realistic experience than regular online table games and it can be played whenever you like.
The technology behind live casino is fascinating, there are actually many different components that make it all work. One of the most important is a piece of hardware called a GCU which is responsible for encoding the video broadcast. It’s about the size of a shoe box and without it live casinos wouldn’t be possible.
Another component is the OCR software which translates all the symbols on cards, numbers on roulette wheels and other information into data that can be transmitted to players. This type of software is getting a lot of attention for use in areas such as medical and insurance processing, but it’s also an integral part of the live casino experience.
Finally, there’s the dealer themselves who is a crucial component of any live casino experience. In addition to their own knowledge and skills they need to be able to read the actions of players and respond accordingly. They will know when the betting period is coming to an end, they will respond to players’ decisions and they will be able to tell the player when they have won or lost.
Once you’ve signed up for a casino account you can access the live casino games at any time you want, providing that you are over the legal gambling age in your country. Once you’ve logged in to your account you can be taken straight to the game you want to play and you will be given a live video link to the croupier who is running it and the real casino equipment that they are playing on.
