The Ultimate Live Casino FAQ
Live casino games are soaring in popularity thanks to the control you as a player have over the outcome. However, with this increase in popularity we’ve noticed a lot more people asking questions about live casino games and how they work. So, to help you get back to basics and understand the online casino game world, we’ve put together the ultimate online casino FAQ.
So, let’s get you back on the winning path and help you get clued up with the ultimate live casino FAQ!
What is a Live Casino?
Live casinos are also known as live dealer games and essentially allow you to play your favorite table games with a real human dealer, rather than in a computer-generated game. These live casino games are live streamed from a production studio that the particular online casino has a deal with. They often come in a range of languages, a variety of table limits and from different locations around the world. Here at BitStarz we have a huge catalogue of live casino games for you to play, including classic games such as Blackjack and Roulette, as well as more innovative games such as Dream Catcher, Lightning Sic Bo and Double Ball Roulette.
Are Live Casinos Safe?
There is no short answer this this question, as there are many factors that can impact whether live casinos are safe. However, for the most part, and for the shortest answer possible, live casinos that are regulated are safe to play at. Look for license numbers, SSL certificates and reviews on popular casino forums such as Casinomeister, Affiliate Guard Dog and GPWA. These will give you a good indicator as to whether a live casino is safe.
When it comes to the live casino games, the majority of online casinos will use a stream from a provider such as Evolution Gaming. These providers control every aspect of the live casino rounds, whether it’s roulette, blackjack or poker. These providers have no incentive to rig games and alter the outcome. Most will burn cards after each round to help prove that the game is truly fair and the decks aren’t stacked. So, in short, a regulated casino using a third-party provider for the live casino games is safe.
Does It Matter That I Have No Experience?
We know that going to a casino and playing games is a scary experience the first few times, and a lot of people get the same feeling when they play at live casinos the first time too – you’re not alone. The dealers and other players are generally all lovely folk that will happily answer any questions and help you get started. Our best advice is to watch a few tutorials, read our top tips and guides to each game, and start out with small stakes to get used to the game.
It helps to have an understanding of the game you’re playing so that you can place smart bets and win more than you lose. Here at BitStarz, we have loads of handy guides to each and every game, along with video content to help you get to grips with the games. Spend some time going through these before diving into the live casino world to boost your chances of walking away with a win.
What Games Can I Play?
There is an incredible selection of games to pick from, including all the casino classics including blackjack, roulette and poker. If you fancy something a bit more modern and creative, there is always the likes of double ball roulette, lighting sic bo, infinite blackjack and even dream catcher. There are both VIP tables available for high rollers – these have bigger table limits – and tables for your average player with fairly reasonable table limits. There are plenty of games to choose from, so don’t be afraid to watch a few rounds before diving into a game.
