Taking place in a live studio, decorated just like a casino floor, this type of real-time gaming brings you, the player, straight into a real Live Casino UK game where you can interact with the dealer and the other players around you. It really has to be seen to be believed.

What is a Live Casino?

Live Casino games are upgraded, live versions of regular online casino table games. While those regular games are computer automated (yes, you're basically playing against a robot), Live Casino UK games feature real humans playing against you, and a real human dealer.

As a result in Live Casino games, there’s no Random Number Generator (RNG) to play against - just the deck of cards, Roulette ball or other players!

Live Casino is beloved by online casino UK players and worldwide players - they bring all of the fun, excitement and social interaction that you'd get when playing in a brick and mortar casino. Check out bCasino’s Live Casino offerings to experience the fun for yourself!

Playing Live Casino

While the variety of games on offer at various online casino UK sites may vary, you can be almost certain to find Live Roulette, Live Blackjack and Live Baccarat. Another popular option is Live Casino Hold’Em, and some other live poker variants. Some UK online casinos may even have live versions of craps, and other table games too.

Live Casino gaming is so popular with UK online casino players because of the social aspect it brings. Sure, playing online casino in the UK is fun, but for some players it can be a bit of a solitary experience. With Live Casinos, you can easily chat to the dealer and to the other players around you, making it much more fun, with real-time gameplay to boot.

How Live Casino Works

So just how do Live Casinos work? If it all seems like magic, that’s because it almost is - the magic of modern technology, at least!

Using the latest streaming technology and HD-ready webcams, a live dealer - a professional croupier - will deal cards to a specially-modified camera, which is then beamed onto your device’s screen, so it looks like you're actually face to face with the dealer.

Just like real-life casinos, Live Casinos are usually open 24/7.

Type of Live Casino Games

As mentioned above, most casino table games are also available as Live Casino games. Each game plays as you’d expect it to, with some key modifications to suit live-streamed play. bCasino is pretty proud of their selection of Live Casino UK games, we consider it some of the best types of playing online in UK:

Live Blackjack

In Live Blackjack, the dealer will often used enlarged cards, which makes it easier for players to see their values, no matter the device they’re playing on. Otherwise, just like in a brick and mortar casino, you can expect the usual game of Blackjack to unfold. Be warned though - this one is a pretty popular option with online casino UK players! Check out bCasino’s Live Blackjack games too - there are several exciting variants to play, and we think you’ll enjoy every single one of them!

Live Roulette

Live Roulette looks much more like the usual Roulette game you'd find in a real-life or in bCasino’s non-live casino. There's a standard roulette wheel, which is spun in real-time by the Roulette croupier. Within the Live Roulette variants available, you’re likely to find popular Roulette variants including French, American and European Roulette. Playing at bCasino, players have even more exciting options, with more interesting Live Casino Roulette variants too!

Live Baccarat

Live Baccarat looks much like its online/offline counterpart, and is played in the usual, Baccarat way. bCasino’s Baccarat Pro Live Casino Dealer game is well-worth checking out if you're a fan of this enthralling table game!

Mobile Online Live Casino

Because Live Casino is similarly to playing in a real casino without actually being there, what’s more exciting than having this technologically-advanced experience while you're on the go?

If you have a good enough internet connection, then Live Casino games can be played anywhere and everywhere, streaming directly and playing at bCasino’s mobile site. It really has to be seen to be believed, but playing Live Casino games on the go is really something to experience.

Advantages of Playing Live Casino over Regular Casinos

There are several advantages to playing Live versions of casino table games.

  • You get to play and interact with other real people, just as you would in a brick and mortar casino. This adds a more social aspect to the game.
  • They're great for learning how to perfect your game strategy - you can copy another player, or see the different ways that players around you play. This is much more difficult when playing against automated software, as in non-Live table games.
  • It's more realistic and exciting than playing non-Live games: sure, playing any casino table game is fun, but playing it in real-time against real people (and even better: playing it on the go from a mobile device) is an experience like no other.
  • Some players consider it to be more trustworthy: because you're not relying on the wisdom/fairness of the RNG algorithm, and can actually see the live dealer using their hands with the cards/chips/ball, Live Casino games may be considered more ‘human’ and fair.

Tips for Playing Online Live Casino

There's really not much to playing Live Casino - you usually choose the game you'd like to play and get playing!

However, if you're looking for some quick and handy tips and tricks, then here are a few useful things you should know:

  • Make sure you have a good internet connection - whichever device you're playing on (and particularly for mobile devices), having a good connection is key: it prevents any lags between you and the dealer...because lags could mean losing out on rounds, hands and ultimately, wins.
  • Make sure you know how to play the game before - unless you're looking to learn from other players, Live Casino games can be a bit fast for a novice player. While there is information available to help you play the game, the combination of the real human dealer and other players can be a bit overwhelming if you're not sure what you're doing….so practice with a non-live game beforehand, and then start playing!
  • Keep track of your bankroll - just like in brick and mortar casinos, the heady excitement of playing against other humans can lead you to bet much more than you would have liked to, and play for longer. So, if you're trying to keep your bankroll for as long as possible, set yourself a budget and stick to it.
