Tips and Tricks for Live Dealer Games

When it comes to gambling online, live dealer casino games have completely revolutionised the industry. Live dealer games offer all the conveniences of online gambling whilst also providing a fully realistic and interactive experience previously only found in a land-based casino.

Here at River Belle Casino, we offer a range of live dealer casino games powered by Evolution Gaming. For players who are not used to the live casino environment, it can take a bit of time to adjust to how things work. In the notes below, we are going to look at a couple of tricks and tips that will help you get the most out of your online gambling experience.

Check your Bandwidth

Live Dealer casino games use high quality video streaming technology that is integrated into the gaming software. As a result, live games tend to use a lot more bandwidth than standard online card and table games.

Before launching into a game, it is always a good idea to check the technical requirements for your computer as well as the bandwidth needed. The last thing you need is for the game to freeze or stutter at a crucial moment during your online session. While it may not be the first thing people think of, it is certainly one of the most important.

Casino Etiquette

Live dealer games are designed to serve more than one player at a time. In fact, most Evolution Gaming live games can accommodate up to seven players at one table. Before you start playing, you should familiarise yourself with the live casino etiquette. You should only take a seat at a table if you are ready to play straight away and be up to date with the rules of the game you are playing. Treat the dealer and the other players around the table with respect at all time. No abusive language will be tolerated at the casino.

Time Management

Anyone who has gambled online will know that time management can be an issue. It can be very easy to lose track of time when you are completely absorbed in a live game, especially when other players are involved. One of the most important tips for players is to set specific time limits and stick to them. Leaving the table at a set time will clear your head and can also prevent you from trying to recover your losses by over spending. Planning your casino time each day ensures that you can return to have fun the next day.

Table Bets

As with regular table games, live dealer games cater for novices and high rollers. Before joining a table, it is essential that you play at a table where the minimum betting limit is in line with your bankroll.

A good starting point is to find a table where the minimum bet is no more that 5% of your bankroll. This will ensure that you have the funds to play for longer even if you find yourself on a losing streak. Each game and each table will display the minimum betting amount with certain tables reserved for higher bets. If you are unsure where to start, you can always level up if you find yourself wanting a higher stakes game.

Have a Strategy

Unlike slots and other online casino games, live dealer games feature card and table games that all require a bit of skill and strategy in order to do well. It is a well-known fact that a player’s chances of winning significantly increase when they have a set playing strategy. Whether you are playing blackjack, poker or roulette, having a playing strategy will help you plan your next move and give the game a little more structure. While playing blind can be fun, it often leads to extended losing streaks that can be hard to break out of if the funds run out.

Have Fun

Online casino games are designed to be entertaining and rewarding. One of the most important things to remember is to have fun. Players can often get very involved in the game especially if they are on a winning streak or trying to recover their losses. It is important to remember why you went online in the first place. Having fun is the whole point. Gambling online is a form of entertainment. Live dealer games are designed to be entertaining and enjoyable, so appreciate them and enjoy yourself.

Know When to Stop

That being said, one of most important aspects of gambling online is knowing when to stop. It might sound a bit clichéd but stopping at the right time can make a huge difference to your overall online gambling experience for that day and for the foreseeable future.

Plenty of players have extended themselves a bit too far and have landed up in a difficult financial situation. One of the most common mistakes is trying to dig yourself out of a losing streak without thinking about the repercussions. Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose. Always have a clear idea of what you want to spend each day and stick to it.
