There are many benefits to playing at a live casino, as opposed to playing at an online casino. The first benefit is the authenticity factor, as you can actually see and touch the cards and chips, whereas when you play at an online casino, it is almost impossible to tell the difference between the real deal and the imitation. In addition, in a live casino, everyone else is playing and if there is a handicap or two, it will not be apparent to the player behind you because the cards are face down and not in front of you. This is a great way to make sure that you do not have any hidden agendas when you place your bets and the dealer is actually listening to what you are saying! There are also many more exciting and dramatic events at live casinos; such as, if someone happens to walk by and you hit a jackpot if there is one, then you can tell the person who walked by because you will be able to hear it clearly over the noise from the other players.
Another benefit is the gaming experience itself, which is definitely more thrilling at a live casino. Many times when you visit a land-based casino, you may be given a limited amount of time to play, but at a live venue you can play for as long as you want. At a brick and mortar casino, if you want to leave before the dealer hands out his winnings, then that is completely acceptable. However, at an online casino, if you want to leave before the credits are depleted (meaning your bonus has run out and you have nothing left), then it is your choice as to when you do leave.
Lastly, you will find that in a live venue you will have the opportunity to speak with the dealers in person. In the past, online casinos have had video conferencing or internet only chat with their dealers. This has always frustrated many avid gamblers, especially those who enjoy speaking with people on a personal level. However, the advent of live dealers has made all of this possible. These new methods of communication have been designed to provide gamers with the most interaction with their favorite dealers.
