Live gaming technology is the future of online gambling

Online gambling is one of the most fast paced industries in the world thanks to substantial advances in new technologies and a growing liberalization of the Asian and European gaming markets. Yet while mobile gaming and flash casinos are beginning to take off, the real powerhouse in the gaming market seems to be live gaming.

With live gaming, players get the experience of stepping into a real casino from the privacy of their own home. Live dealers pass cards, spin wheels and take bets just like in a brick-and-mortar facility, yet players make wagers and call cards over the internet in a unique phenomenon that has grown quite popular in recent months.

Of note is the UK, where online live roulette has spiked thanks to partnership with several TV channels. Players can chat with one another, speak to the presenter and even have their name read on live TV just by logging on to their favorite online casino.

The software even allows players to customize their experience by choosing different layouts and establishing a playing environment that fits their own personality.

Games that are among the most popular live gaming titles include baccarat, craps, poker and – of course – roulette.
