Got Live If You Want It! Live-Dealer Games Offer Real Humans in Real Time
Want a more interactive online game? Check out live dealers on a host of New Jersey casino sites. Live-dealer play streams a real dealer dealing real cards or spinning a real roulette wheel, so you can enjoy a casino-like experience while lounging in your jammies.
Many new online casino players miss the social interaction of playing live at a brick-and-mortar casino. Online poker is an exception, of course, but in most online table games, players aren’t talking to a dealer or with each other, and they’re pretty much just playing alone against a computerized house.
Of course, some players love the privacy of online play, but if you fancy a little human interaction, then live dealers are the answer.
Put simply, live dealer play lets you play a streamed game featuring a real dealer dealing real cards or spinning a real roulette wheel. Most games allow for comments among players and the dealer.
Live dealer play began in New Jersey in 2016 at GoldenNuggetCasino.com and its partner Betfaircasino.com. The live games quickly pushed GoldenNugget and its partners to the top of the state’s online market.
Yet for many online players, live-dealer action remains an undiscovered country. After all, online slots still rule most casino sites.
Live-Dealer Games Grow
But live dealer games are making inroads all the time. Live dealer games are now offered at:
GoldenNuggetcasino was the first to start live-dealer play in the state and remains the leader. Right now, GoldenNugget offers up to 11 live-dealer games with as many as six offered 24/7. All games are offered from at least 10 a.m. to 4 a.m.
One of the big draws for GoldenNugget is live casino floor roulette games streamed from its Atlantic City casino. Other games include blackjack, baccarat and casino Hold’em.
A quick note: all of New Jersey’s live dealer games are streamed from Atlantic City, but most emanate from studios.
Each site with live-dealer games has its own schedule. Borgata, for example, also offers live baccarat, blackjack, roulette and casino Hold’em from 10 a.m. to 4 a.m., with five active games offered.
Another example is Resorts, which offers five live blackjack games from 11 a.m. to 3 a.m. as well as roulette, baccarat and casino Hold’em.
Live dealer games offer some advantages over regular online play. Blackjack and baccarat games, for example, are dealt from a live shoe, just like in a casino. And since betting calculations are done by computer, the games move more briskly.
Still, game play is pretty much the same as on regular online games—just with the added excitement of being at a live casino without ever leaving the comfort of your own home.
