Beginners guide live casino
Online casinos offer live table games such as roulette via a fast, high-security internet connection. You watch via HD cameras and see a real gaming table and a real croupier. In some casinos, you can switch between different cameras yourself and you even come across Dutch-speaking croupiers. You will not get closer to a ‘real casino experience’ unless you actually put on your shoes and visit a Holland Casino location. Even when you do not trust ‘normal games’ of online casinos, the live casino is the perfect alternative.
Gambling in the live casino of Maneki Casino, for example, is 100% reliable. We have deposited and requested payouts several times: even with payouts of more than 300 euros, we received our winnings quickly and without problems. Payment to an E-wallet is even arranged within an hour! In addition, we are very pleased with the customer service that is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Have you finished playing and would you like to have the winnings paid out? At Maneki Casino that goes very quickly. Even if you have won thousands of euros with a game of blackjack or baccarat. Of course, you have to pay the gambling tax on your casino winnings. Also keep in mind that the tax is calculated on the possible profit on a monthly basis.
Evolution as a facilitator of the online live table game
The live casino of Maneki Casino, like most live casinos, uses software from, among others, the listed Evolution. Evolution is a facilitator of live table games, other major online casinos such as Betsson or Casino Euro also use Evolution products. It is the largest and most popular facilitator of live table games.
The Evolution office has a very practical location: right next to Malta airport. Croupiers from all over the world work here day and night to facilitate live online table games.
Evolution gives you the option to play 4 different live table games at the same time. The screen is divided into four and you can monitor everything at the same time. The so-called ‘High Rollers’ are also taken into account: the VIP gaming tables make it possible to bet between 1000 and 5000 euros per hand on a game of blackjack.
Of course there are also other facilitators for live casinos. That’s how we know Netent and Extreme. Sometimes online casinos offer their own live games, LeoVegas is an example of that. You can only play that kind of live games on the relevant site. Other facilitators are Portomaso, Oracle, Authentic Gaming, Ezugi, Playtech, Microgaming, Media Live Casino, Amaya, Opus, Visionary Igaming, Netplay, Vivo and Smart Live Gaming.
So don’t worry if you come across the same brands at different online casinos. You can recognize the reliability of the facilitator by a respectable, valuable permit. The permits issued in Malta are very valuable.
Live gambling in an online casino is extremely popular. There are a lot of variations of live blackjack, roulette, baccarat and poker. Take blackjack as an example: the game has dozens of variations within this segment alone. A good example is Blackjack Party , a game developed by Evolution. The rules are the same, but next to the dealer is a lady. She has nothing to do with the game, but is purely for fun.
There are also interesting live roulette variants from Evolution. For example Double Ball Roulette. The name says it all: in this game you play with two balls instead of one. A simple idea that leads to a completely new game experience.
Online casinos have grown enormously in recent years, and they will continue to do so. More than 200 different live games have already been developed. And of course you benefit as a gambler. The choice is huge and you play at an online casino of course what you want, how long you want and when you want.
Although it seems to be more reliable and honest anyway if you can see a casino game live, the honesty of the games is further guaranteed in two different areas. Firstly in the technical field; just like with ‘normal’ online casino games, the technical systems on which the game is played must be completely transparent.
The technical structure must also be known to the government and specific authority that issued the gambling license. The Maltese or British government can precisely monitor whether all technical conditions are met to reliably offer players a live casino. Because the technical structure must also be able to be checked by an external party, the reliability of the system is immediately guaranteed.
Omdat veel online casino’s een facilitator inhuren om de spellen te verzorgen, hoeven casino’s zich weinig zorgen te maken over deze technische vraagstukken. De facilitator is hier immers in gespecialiseerd en kan zich dus richten op het technische vlak. Om facilitator te worden, moet een bedrijf aan specifieke eisen voldoen die veel lijken op de strenge eisen die aan casino’s gesteld worden.
In addition to these technical requirements, every reliable license also includes requirements about the way in which games are organized. Because live casino games often involve ‘normal’ casino games such as Blackjack, roulette and similar games, it is mainly checked here that the outcome of the games matches the outcome that can be expected statistically. After all, unlike statistical probability, no outcome can be built into the game.
Unlike with computer-controlled casino games, live casino games are more about guaranteeing the honesty of the dealer. After all, live blackjack does not use a Random Number Generator, but a deck of cards. A reliable license therefore ensures that the fairness of every game can be checked in a certain way.
How does the technology work?
To bring a live casino game from the studio to your screen, a specific technical infrastructure is needed. This infrastructure is provided by the facilitator at most casinos. The live casino games you can choose from are a common choice for most smaller online casinos. The player is connected to a table that is offered by the facilitator to several casinos at the same time. You still play at your own casino, but are ‘connected’ live with a facilitator’s table.
Larger casinos often choose to offer their own tables. In that case, the facilitator ensures that a casino has its own (part of a larger) studio. All tables are provided with croupiers connected to one casino. The environment is also completely furnished at that specific casino. Sometimes the environment is dressed digitally, but sometimes a studio is also specifically designed to meet the requirements of the casino. Technically, however, there is little difference. In this situation, too, the player is ‘connected’ to the facilitator’s studio.
This connection consists of three parts: the studio, the casino where you play and you as a player. The casino with which you play is in this situation only a conduit; it ensures that you play with your balance and that your winnings are credited immediately. The facilitator offers the video and the ‘User Interface’: the buttons on the screen with which you determine the bets.
By making optimum use of fast internet connections, information is always exchanged live between the player and the facilitator. This makes it possible for roulette, just like in the real casino, to bet even when the bullet is launched. Once the result is known, all options appear immediately on the screen; at most online casinos the complete game is digital and the dealer can see exactly who won what.
