Pros and Cons of live casino games


There are so many options on online casinos these days, including playing against an AI and playing live with a real human being. You’re kind of spoiled for choice! As with playing in casinos in person though, there are pros and cons to everything.

So, should you play live casino games? What do you need to know? Here’s the complete low down on the pros and cons of live casino games to help you to make up your mind.

The Pros

Play Anytime, Anywhere

Unfortunately, you can’t put a vegas casino in your pocket and get it out when you fancy playing a game of blackjack. Life doesn’t work that way! Or does it? With live casino games, you can get the fun of an online casino right from your pocket. You can play the games both on desktop and on mobile, so you can play a quick game while you’re waiting for the subway or for a doctor's appointment. There’s no need to download anything - just open your browser and it’s time to play. Nifty, huh?

Human Contact

Perhaps the main benefit of a live casino is that there’s a little bit of human contact involved. AI is a wonderful thing, but we all want to play a game against real people sometimes! You can truly enjoy the game that much more when you are playing with real human beings rather than a computer. You are sure to have an excellent experience that you will certainly remember. Dealers are all good at what they’re doing and conduct games in a professional manner, so you can really feel at ease while you play. Sometimes playing online can feel so cold and clinical, but live casinos can eradicate that feeling entirely thanks to the human playing with you.

Latest Technology

Technology has come a long way, so why shouldn’t we take advantage of it? Live casino games offer you the benefit of working with the latest gambling technology, taking your game play up a notch. There truly is nothing like it. Your game play will be in high definition quality so you can watch the action unfold with stellar graphics quality. You can talk live with the dealer thanks to the up to date virtual panel. You could even say that it’s better than a real life casino in many respects, though perhaps you may not quite have the atmosphere you’re looking for.

The Cons Of Online Casinos

Where there’s an up there is always a down - it’s no different with online casinos. There are always problems that can come with using technology too that you need to look out for. Here are some of the key downsides to playing on an online casino.

Not As Many Games

Most online casinos will offer an extensive list of games that you can choose from. Your options are far more limited with live online games because developers spend a lot of money running live casinos. As such, they are often hesitant to get the staff to play for every single kind of game out there. For the most part, you will find the classics for live casinos - blackjack, roulette, baccarat and poker. As time goes on we may expect to see more, but the options aren’t that extensive at present. If there’s a game that you really like to play not on that list, you’re out of luck.

Technical Issues

Technology is both a blessing and a curse, especially when it comes to online live casinos. These games are usually streamed live, which can pose a risk for the people playing. If your internet goes down for a few seconds then it can be pretty catastrophic. Don’t even think about playing live casino games on a weak internet signal outside of the house either, as all of your cash will go up in smoke. You need good quality internet for the best chances of success. Even then there’s still a chance of technical issues cropping up. This can mean that a lot of players aren’t keen on live dealer games, especially when there’s so much at stake.

Raised Stakes

As we’ve established, it can cost a lot to run an online casino. Because of this, the stakes are often much higher to keep them running. As such, you probably should stay away if you’re a beginner!


Live online casinos are great for the veterans who want some more human contact, but make sure that you weigh up the pros and cons! They’re worth trying, but sometimes can be risky.
