Live Dealer Blackjack Explained

Live Dealer games have come to represent the next frontier in immersive online casino action. The high-class versions of today are so immersive and authentic that you really will feel like you’re sitting at a table in one of the world’s best land-based casinos. If you’re interested in experiencing Live Dealer Blackjack for yourself this way, read on here!

How Does Live Dealer Blackjack Work? 

Like all live online casino games, Live Dealer Blackjack is operated by real-life, trained dealers using real-life, high-quality casino equipment. That means, in the case of Blackjack, that the dealer shuffles and uses real cards, and sits at a real Blackjack table. Depending on the software platform, Live Dealer Blackjack games take place and are filmed in special sections of real land-based casinos, or in beautifully designed studios. Either way, the setting is always very elegant and creates the atmosphere of a sophisticated casino when you play. The games are filmed, often using several camera angles to create a more realistic effect, and then streamed to you via a high-definition video feed. You watch the action unfold in real time, as if it was really happening in front of you.

A Different Pace of Play 

Live Dealer Blackjack is a little quicker than offline Blackjack because all players can usually bet at once, but a little slower than conventional online games because the cards have to be shuffled and dealt between each round. If you’ve never played before you might need to give yourself a chance to get used to the different speed.

Great Live Blackjack Options 

A range of Blackjack games are available in Live Dealer formats, so you’ll always be well-entertained. You’ll also always be playing in a game with other players, and can sometimes even chat with them for a more sociable experience. Don’t forget that you can also, of course, chat to your Live Dealer. These individuals are always highly trained professionals, to say nothing of gorgeous and witty. They are specially chosen to be Live Dealer hosts because of their insight and charm, so take full advantage. Enjoy some light-hearted banter that will enhance your playing mood even more, and then get some serious advice on your strategy from a serious expert.

Live Dealer Blackjack Enhancements 

Aside from being able to socialise with other players, get advice from dealers and watch games in real time, Live Dealer Blackjack games usually come with plenty of other special features to make playing them even better. Different side bets will pay you out no matter what is going on in the main game and keep things more exciting, while other features will allow you to gain a better understanding of the game. For example, in some Live Dealer Blackjack rounds you can see which players are on winning streaks to get an idea of how the cards work and the best hands are played. Try a few live Blackjack games at JackpotCity, Spin Palace and River Belle and see what you think of the action!
