Casino

Online casinos can be divided into two groups based on their interface: web-based and download-only casinos. Some casinos offer both interfaces.

Some casinos offer ‘Live gaming’, either exclusively, or as part of a wider online casino offering. Live casinos may be web or download based. In live online casinos, popular casino games such as roulette and blackjack are dealt by real dealers in casino studios, in an attempt to convey more of the atmosphere of a physical casino. Player actions (including chat) such as ‘hit’ in the game of blackjack may be transmitted to the dealer; in some online casinos more than one player may ‘sit’ at a particular ‘seat’ on the table, and in this case there is no interactivity between player and dealer, the question of which player(s) requested the extra card that the dealer dealt and which chose to ‘stand’ will be handled by the software. It is usual for players to be able to observe a video feed of the action, and equally common for players to opt to turn it off, if they lack the bandwidth – as the cards are read by OCR and other technology, the video feed is only ever a visual cue.
