Online casinos offer many exciting online casino games. For many players, these online casino games become even more exciting when they are offered as live dealer games. Live dealer online blackjack has become extremely popular with online casino players, and is one of the most popular of the live dealer games found at online casinos.
Live dealer blackjack is essentially played in the same way as regular online casino blackjack, however, it is played with a real live person being the dealer. The live dealer deals the cards to the players in real time. For those players who enjoy the live casino experience, the live dealer version of the game of blackjack is far more exciting than the regular online blackjack version.
One of the advantages of live dealer online casino blackjack is that players can enjoy the experience of the brick and mortar casino experience, but with certain advantages, such as that players can join a live dealer game when they wish to do so, without having to travel to a land based casino. It also means that players can play for as long a time period, or as short a time period as they would like, without feeling compelled to have a long gaming session, as players would do in a land based casino.
In live dealer blackjack games, players can see the cards being dealt by the live dealer. This means that the pace of the game is somewhat slower than that of a regular online casino blackjack game that has the cards dealt by the online casino software, using the Random Number Generator software to ensure that the cards are dealt randomly. Players may take a little longer to make their decisions, although the live dealers will have all the skill and speed expected from regular brick and mortar blackjack dealers. There are usually time limits imposed on how long players have to make their decisions, but players may use the full allotted amount of time, possibly as long as 15 seconds each. If the player does not make their choice quickly enough, the dealer makes the decision for the player according to rules that have been set out by the online casino in advance.
Although rules of live dealer online casino blackjack will differ from online casino to online casino, the basic rules will be similar. Players may find that there is not a place available at a live dealer game, and will need to place their name on a waiting list, being notified by the online casino when a seat opens up. Many online casinos endeavor to offer enough live dealer tables to ensure that players do not have to wait, or that the waiting time is kept to a minimum.
