How to Play Live Casino Games Online

Live Casino games are a staple of any successful online casino site. They can provide the energy and vitality of a land-based casino without the need to leave the house. That said, you may be out and about yet can still play along with the Live Casino games here at Bet UK thanks to the fact that games are available to play via mobile as well as desktop. So if you’re out shopping or on the bus, as long as you have a stable internet connection you will be able to play your game of choice, whether that be roulette, blackjack, poker or something completely different.

Assuming you are thinking about playing live casino games online, there are some important things to know. First is the fact that there is a difference between live games and simulations. Live games are played alongside other live players and controlled by live hosts or croupiers. A simulation is controlled entirely by game software; you may or may not play with other live players.

The second thing to note is that the game rules associated with land-based games are generally the same rules used in live online games. So if you are playing blackjack, for example, standard blackjack rules apply. The same goes for poker, roulette, baccarat, etc.

In this article, we will explain how to play some of the most popular live online casino games that we offer, so that you can get to grips with exactly how everything works. Live casino games seperate themselves from the standard games due to the live streams and real-feel provided.

Tips for Playing Live Casino Games Online

Playing live casino games online can be a great way to spend your time. You always have the opportunity of winning as well. But do not go into online gaming blindly. Know what you are doing before you get started. Below are a few tips on how to play some of the most popular live casino games online:

How To Play Roulette

Stepping up to the roulette table could provide you with a great experience, whether you do so in person or at an online casino. The rules are simple, all you have to do is place a bet on where you think the marble ball will land. Once all bets have been placed, the roulette wheel will spin and the marble ball will be added to the game. Wherever the marble lands will determine any winning bets. For example, if you placed a bet on ‘Red’ and it landed in Red number 8 you would be paid out as a winner.

The standard game of roulette can be accessed here on Bet UK online casino, though for a more authentic casino experience you may decide to go with one of our Live Roulette offerings instead. The live version of this ever popular casino game is very similar to the standard version in terms of the rules, though there is added panache given by the professional croupier on hand to guide you through each roulette game.

The sights and sounds of a land-based casino can be experienced from the comfort of your own home, making everything that much more convenient. The main thing you’ll need to know when playing live online roulette is how the betting system works. Live Roulette has the option of placing an outside bet or an inside bet.

Outside bets appear on the outside of the Raceway, with things like odd or even numbers, a range of numbers or the colours themselves. These particular bets will have lower odds, as they are statistically more likely to happen. As such, the returns are generally lower.

Inside bets are seen on the inside of the roulette wheel Raceway. The easiest way to describe them is that they are the single numbers. As they are less likely to come off, they have higher odds and higher returns. There are a range of live roulette games here at Bet UK online casino, with variations such as Live Immersive Roulette, Live Auto Roulette and Live American Roulette.

How To Play Blackjack

Live Blackjack is one of the most popular online casino around and it is clear to see why. It is a game that combines luck and skill, making it a favourite for people all around the globe. The premise of Live Blackjack is really easy to follow, as it is the player that has a hand of cards closest to the combined total of 21 that will paid as a winner.

Similar to Live Roulette, there is a professional known as the dealer there to run the game. Bets must be placed before any cards are dealt in order to make sure the game is fair. Placing a bet is easy, it is just a case of clicking on the chip you would like to bet and placing it on the table.

To get the game underway, the dealer will give themselves two cards while also providing you, the player, with two cards. The value of the two cards in your hand will then be added together to create the total value. From your point of view, the first two cards will be face up while one of the dealers cards will be placed face down.

Depending on the cards you’ve been dealt, you may then decide to either ‘Hit’ or ‘Stand’. Hit means that you will be dealt another card. This option is probably best used when you are nowhere near the value of 21, such as if your first two cards were a 3 and a 5. Stand means that you’re sticking with the cards you have and hoping that the dealer’s hand is less valuable. If the total value of your hand goes above 21 at any point, you’ll automatically lose the game. It’s not all bad news though, as the same rules apply for the dealer.

Live Blackjack is popular for a reason, as it can provide a thorough online gaming experience. It is not a game that usually lasts too long either, so playing Live Blackjack with Bet UK online casino won’t take too much time out of your day. Live Blackjack party is also an option for those that want a great selection of music with their gaming!

How To Play Poker

Thanks to the exceptional creators at Evolution Gaming, there are a number of options here at Bet UK for those of you that enjoy a good game of poker. Poker has been a cornerstone of casinos everywhere going way back to the 1800’s, with variations on the popular card game first being reported hundreds of years before that. Of course, the game is still going strong today and is thriving thanks to the many online poker games available on the web.

One of these is Live Casino Hold’Em, which can provide you with a top drawer online poker experience. A professional dealer will be on hand to give you that real-life casino feel. The game features a hand of five cards, given out by the dealer. The game is viewed via a live video link, where players have the option of communicating with the dealer thanks to the live audio function. This is all well and good, but I’m sure you want to know how to win at poker. Well, the aim of the game is to end up with a better hand than the dealer. With the five cards you hold, look to make the best possible combination.

Let’s rewind things a little bit though, as before your Live Poker game can get underway any bets will first need to be placed. Once done, the dealer will deal the cards. The exceptional graphics and live gaming experience make this online poker game what it is, and the choice is yours with the option of changing the camera view.

As well as Live Casino Hold’Em, other Live Poker offerings here on the Bet UK online casino website include; Live Three Card Poker, Live Caribbean Stud and Ultimate Texas Hold’Em.

How To Play Baccarat

If you are looking for an uncomplicated time with one of our live casino games, Baccarat could be the one for you. In this game, there are three potential outcomes; a player win, a dealer win or a tie.

Before the game gets underway, you will bet either on your side, the dealer’s side or for a tie. In Live Baccarat, cards two through nine are face value, with a 10, jack, queen and king all having a value of zero. An ace is worth one. The live dealer will deal the cards out face up, with two each for both the player and the dealer. Whoever has the hand that comes to a total of closest to the value of nine will win.

In the event that the cards you have been dealt combine for a total of greater than nine, the value of your cards is added together with the ‘1’ or ‘2’ dropped. As an example, if your hand included a 10 and a 5, they would be added together to make 15 with the 1 then dropped. Therefore the total value of the hand would be five.

As with the previous games in this article, there are some top variations of Live Baccarat here on the Bet UK website. These include Live Baccarat A, Live Baccarat B, Live Speed Baccarat, Live Baccarat Squeeze and No Commission Baccarat.

Why You Should Play Live Casino Games Online

Now comes the big question everybody asks: why should I play live casino games online? First of all, a good reason to play live games online is that doing so gives you access to all your favourite casino games without requiring you to visit a land-based casino. You may only have the opportunity to travel to Monaco or Las Vegas once during your lifetime; you can play online as frequently as you'd like.

Live casino games are a refreshing departure from video slots and casino simulations. Playing a live game pits you against other players or your croupier, requiring you to pay more attention. This makes live casino games more thought-provoking.

Live casino games offered online are an excellent way to get the casino experience right from the privacy of your own home. All you need to enjoy online gaming is a computer or mobile device, an internet connection, and a list of online casinos you can explore.
