Over the past couple of years, online casinos have stolen even more thunder from traditional land-based casinos by introducing live dealer sites, which stream their games via live video feeds from actual casinos directly to players’ devices.
This means that players can now interact with actual dealers and experience the casino atmosphere when they play their favourite table games like roulette, blackjack, craps and poker. It is really the best of both worlds.
Of course, this different mode of play calls for a somewhat altered approach to the game:
Mind Your Manners
For players accustomed to playing online, it is natural to lose sight of the finer nuances that come with interacting with an actual human being.
Be polite at all times. Don’t heckle the dealer or other players. Don’t deliberately draw out your game decisions to frustrate your opponents. Don’t offer unsolicited advice. And DON’T flirt with dealers, no matter how attractive they are. You may think that you are safe behind your computer screen but it is just as easy to get banned from an online casino as it is to get kicked out of a traditional one. In fact, it’s easier.
Watch Your Bankroll
This advice obviously applies equally in any gambling scenario, regardless of whether there is a live dealer in the mix. However, remembering to stick to your budget can be more difficult if you get caught up in the excitement of a live game.
So we’re reminding you again: decide how much you can afford to lose in advance and keep that number in mind at all times. Walk away from the table when your bankroll is up. As Mr Rogers said, know when to fold ‘em.
Plan Your Strategy
Again, it’s easy to get caught up in (and then carried with) the excitement of a live casino game. So it’s important to get a handle on your strategy before you sit down at the table. This starts with ensuring that you are 100% familiar with the rules and even includes choosing the tables with betting limits that suit your pocket and your playing skills.
Choose Your Casino Carefully
Make sure that your site of choice offers the best possible games and payout options. More importantly, the site you choose should be certified by the relevant local and international authorities to ensure that it is completely above board. Spin Palace Live always meets the highest standards of operation, so if you play Roulette, Blackjack, Baccarat or any other Live Casino games with us, you can rest assured it is with the best!
Check Your Connection
The last think you want is a dropped connection in the middle of a live game. Make sure that you have a reliable internet connection with enough bandwidth to handle the video stream.
