Live dealer casinos for Australians
BettingPlanet.com works to provide Australian players with up-to-date, entertaining and accurate information about the stunning world of live croupier casino games – games hosted by online casinos who employ professional and attractive dealers to take charge of favourite titles such as blackjack, roulette, baccarat, three card poker, casino hold’em poker, lotto, keno and more, while we watch the action unfold and bet from our desktops and smart TVs via high definition live video feeds.
Live dealer casino games are young and vibrant. It’s not only the range of titles available for real money play that impresses, but so too the player options such as choosing your dealer and chat features, the high definition quality of the live video feeds, the security measures in place, the hot and sexy minimally-dressed Playboy Bunny croupiers employed for added satisfaction and the pure entertainment factor involved.
It’s staggering to think what lies in store next as online casinos continuously work to improve their live games, with endless possibilities in reach for both players and hosting parties.
Live dealer casino games
All casino games lend themselves to being transformed in to high quality live croupier titles, so it’s only a matter of time before we start seeing the majority of casino favourites available for real money play via HD video feeds on across all our media devices. Already we have blackjack, roulette, poker variants, baccarat and lottery-type games, so we can expect to see more tables games introduced to the world of live croupier gameplay shortly, such as sic bo, craps, pai gow, casino war, the big wheel, more variants of 21 and other hybrid titles.
Live gaming companies and studios
Innovative and next-generation live croupier gaming developing companies, such as Microgaming, Evolution Gaming and Ezugi, all offer their software to a host of trusted and reputable online casinos, and it’s up to each individual casino to choose whom it wishes to utilise as its live dealer gaming host party.
Each live software company has its own unique style, and distinct methods to add great interactivity to the live video broadcast and create an engaging and rich playing experience for the customer.
Each employs full time workers to deal the casino games following months of training, just as a genuine land-based casino would do with its employees. Pit-bosses are also hired, along with technicians to aid in fixing any technical issues which may arise during play. The croupiers are filmed in real-time, as the pit-bosses and casino floor managers scout the gaming floor to make sure all action is running smoothly.
Set up usually in a regulated gaming studio or land-based casino, rooms and tables are positioned across the entire area and from home (or the office), we can select which table/s we wish to play at and begin our online and live casino experience, betting on outcomes while watching and chatting to gorgeous croupiers spinning wheels, dealing cards and drawing lotto balls.
Live dealer casino laws in Australia
Unfortunately the only legal live casino games Australians can play are at land-based gambling venues, with online gambling banned under the Interactive Gambling Act update. This doesn’t mean Australians can’t play at online casinos, it just means that it’s illegal to host a gambling site in Australia, or advertise offshore online casinos to citizens of Australia. While there has been relatively little enforcement of Australian laws, the seriousness of them is evident by the fact that many of the world’s most well-known brands have left the market.
While live casino gaming is still possible, the only legal forms of online gambling in Australia, are sports betting, lottery and lottery betting, and some real money casual games, that can be played via the Tatts website, although these are more lotto than keno.
