Online casinos have come a long way in the last decade. Compared to most other industries, ten years is but an embryo with regards to advancements, but if one considers the leaps and bounds made by the online gambling industry by means of graphics, game play and software the jump has been incredible.
There is one area, however, where online casinos could never compete with land based casinos and that is where human interaction is concerned.
This may have been true in the past, but the gap is closing fast. Although many gamblers prefer the solitude of gambling online, it is comforting to know that online casinos cater for those who want the sociability of playing with others. Live dealer casinos now offer players the opportunity to do just this due largely to higher connection speeds and smoother software applications.
Most of the popular online casino games are available in live dealer format. These include baccarat, blackjack, sic bo, poker, craps and a host of others. Live dealer casinos allow players to actually see the hand being dealt, as opposed to the hand digitally appearing in front of them.
When in the past it was only possible to play multiplayer games with live chat, just a simple webcam now allows players to actually see the dealer and in some cases gamblers can also see who they are playing against. All dealers are registered and certified as professional dealers and every throw of the dice or card dealt is monitored.
The most complicated part of playing live dealer games is downloading the software needed and this is not difficult at all.

Many gamblers are now staying in the comfort of their favourite computer chairs when the gambling bug bites, and no longer have to go through the hassle of travelling to a land based casino just to interact with other players.
Whats more, most land based casinos with the exception of those found on the famous strips and within holiday destinations have a client base consisting of locals. Live dealer casinos allow players to interact with other gamblers from all walks of life from around the globe.
