Playing casino games has always been a thrill. The experience became even better when gaming houses rolled the service to online platforms and hit new levels when real-time dealing became a reality. The new playing formats allow players to enjoy casino games from the comfort of their homes.
As if all that were not enough, the industry continued blessing players with the introduction of live mobile casino games. This means players can still enjoy their favourite games on the go with the same excitement as if they were in a physical casino. The mobile platforms are optimized to load quickly even in poor reception areas.
There are numerous casino games that punters can access from their mobile phones. Most of these games are simplified and thus may not include some of the features that players see when playing on a PC. This simplification allows pages to load faster and also avoids overcrowding the small device screen.
The omitted details are mostly decorative graphics, which do not add any value to the game itself. The basic experience of playing the game remains completely unchanged.
Playing casino games on a mobile can be enjoyed by logging into the casino website using either a browser or a downloaded phone application.
Live casino apps are either general house apps (one app that has several games) or dedicated apps that only offer a particular stand-alone game. General apps have the advantage of allowing players to switch from one game to another at will, but lack the fine details of particular games found in dedicated apps.
Gaming houses offer most of these apps for free on app stores like Google play store and the iOS app store. Players are advised to read through reviews of experiences from other players first before deciding which app suits them best.
Popular game apps include Blackjack, Hold’em, Baccarat, and Roulette.
Live casino aims to make the player’s experience as close as possible to visiting a physical casino. Through an internet connection, the player’s device interface allows them to see what is happening in the real casino – dealing of cards, the tables, etc. – all in real time.
The player’s device camera also allows other remote players to see him/her. Depending on the particular game, players play against each other or against the house. The rules of each particular game are similar to those used in a brick-and-mortar casino.
Players deposit money in their accounts and use it to gamble. They receive payouts electronically too.
Live casino gambling is becoming increasingly popular in Canada. The regulations for online gaming and the fact that players can access playing platforms easily are the main contributing factors.
Players are advised to familiarise themselves with the regulations in their specific jurisdictions – taxes, age restrictions, etc. – before playing online casino games.
Some of the platforms where punters can enjoy live casino games in Canada include BitCasino, Falls View, Casino Rama and Casino Niagara.
BitCasino has scored another first by allowing players to place stakes and receive payouts in Bitcoins.
Before choosing a casino to play in, it is always important to read their fine print.
