Live Dealer Online Casinos - Bet Limits Compared
Live dealer lobbies give today's players a way to bridge the gap between land-based gaming and online. Visitors can click directly out of a slot's lobby and into a live dealer suite of games from a single or multiple providers.
Live games like blackjack, roulette, baccarat, dragon tiger, and more are delivered in real-time using live streaming technology, high-definition video, studio-quality sound, and live chat capabilities.
The move toward live table gaming has swept the world in recent years with some data suggesting that as much as 30% of all online casino gaming churn now goes across the live dealer tables. That's not to say that player interest in slots has diminished, it's more a matter of the sharp increase in online gaming overall and wider availability of live games.

There are very few pure online live dealer operators out there - a site that offers nothing but live games streamed in real-time from a brick-and-mortar floor or a studio enterprise. The live component is most often simply a plug-in delivering games to myriad gaming lobbies around the world. You and I might be at totally different websites, continents apart, yet still playing the same game at the same table in the present with the same dealer on the same software.
Lobbies and suites may be better terms for what we are looking at except in the cases of bespoke rooms which are fairly rare.
A branded live dealer offering will either have studios located directly on the gaming floor of a bricks and sticks establishment, in an on-location studio at the casino, or might be completely remote thousands of miles away in a studio set up with the operator's branding on the tables, in the background, or even in the dealer's manner of dress and any badges, chevrons, or logos.
The fourth type of branded/bespoke offering is simply a studio using Chroma Key (greenscreen) technology to augment reality for players who enter the live dealer suite from any given main lobby. In this case, the CGI (computer-generated imagery) could "overpaint" and background "paint" a different environment and provide a different atmosphere for players anywhere based on their lobby plug-in or even their geolocation as determined by a personal web browser's IP address.
The latter scenario is not usually the case, not due to a lack of technology or ability, but likely down to business reasons. It would be a premium service offered by the business-to-business (B2B) provider to its partner operator(s). The perceived value could be diminished if the provider simply presented a "paintable screen" with human and game elements rather than a dealer addressing players at LeoVegas, for instance.
