Live Dealer Casino Reaches Online Sportsbook
April 28th, 2010 – by Glen Farmer
Many online sportsbooks include casinos on their list of available gaming choices. Some of these online casinos use established brands of casino software, while others offer their own proprietary software. One of these sportsbooks offering a proprietary brand of casino software is 5Dimes, and their service has recently expanded to include a live dealer casino.
A live dealer casino is, simply put, an online casino that incorporates webcam technology to display a real person dealing real cards. For those who want a more realistic experience, or those who simply do not trust random number generators, these live dealer casinos are a preferred route to take in online casino gambling.
The live dealer casino includes roulette, blackjack, and baccarat. The live dealer casino will let players watch as the ball is spun and the cards are drawn. This will give the experience of being right at the table in a brick and mortar casino, rather than staring through a monitor. With no random number generators or gaming results based on a computer program, the results will be determined purely by the outcome of purely random results.
To add to the realistic feel of the games, players will be able to log in to the live casino early and watch the cards fanned out and shuffled. Since the casino opens at 4 PM EST, players can log in at 3:45 PM EST and watch the preliminary process. The casino will then remain open until 8 AM EST.
5Dimes, one of the best online sportsbooks, is also offering cash back on all casino losses. They will periodically grant these rebates over the losses incurred while gaming.
An added bonus is found in the fact that 5Dimes also accepts American players, making this one of the few live dealer casinos accepting USA players.
