You’ve probably heard it a thousand times; online pokies are the most popular type of game played at any virtual casino. There are a number of reasons for this; however, one of the most prevalent is that some table game players are suspicious when it comes to mechanised play. The idea of having a ‘machine’ in charge – despite the Random Number Generator system employed by all online casinos – just doesn’t sit well. Now that Live Dealer Casinos are available to play at all major online casinos, does this mean that they’ll be able to maintain their title and popularity?
As mentioned earlier, online pokies are traditionally the most popular games around. With an enormous range of themes and hundreds of different titles to choose from, variety – it seems – is indeed the spice of life at an online casino. In the mood for a fantasy-themed pokey one day, but find yourself wanting to play a traditional 3-reel pokey the next? No problem. Online pokies cater to any mood you might find yourself in at any time of the day. Of course, there is also the opportunity for a life-changing win on progressive jackpot pokies, which can pay out several millions in one go.
Nevertheless, there will still be a large majority of online casino players who would actually prefer to play table games, but don’t quite have faith in the ‘artificial dealers’ and the fairness of the games themselves. Enter Live Dealer Casinos.
Now that online players can stream high-definition, real-time blackjack, roulette, baccarat, poker and sic bo games directly to their lounge, bedroom or any place they happen to want to play, table games seem to be giving online pokies a run for their money. Because Live Dealer Casinos allow the player to witness the entire game with their own eyes, worry about fair gameplay is a thing of the past. Not only this, but players can also enjoy the social element of the game in a private environment, where a live chat option is available – both to engage in conversation with the croupier and the players alike – but ultimately up to you to decide to partake in.
Given how well Live Dealer Casinos have been received, both by PC and mobile players, it’s clear that they’re here to stay. The games are just as interactive, thrilling and lucrative as any round of blackjack, roulette, baccarat, poker or sic bo that you’d play at a land-based casino – and the dealers, regardless of gender, just as fetching and professional. The only question left to ask is: what will technology gift us with next?
