There is no doubt that online casinos have come a long way since they were first introduced, with a great deal of investment in casino software and the design of new casino games both significantly improving the experience and enjoyment of playing casino games online. For many people though there was one new feature which was not available during the early days of online casinos, but gradually introduced during the first few years that was vitally important for their enjoyment of playing casino games online, and that was the Live casino option. The principle of being able to play some casino games in a simulated real casino environment came about as a result of increasing criticism of the graphics associated with the movement of the ball on the roulette wheel in response to the winning number selected by a Random Number Generator. The online casinos eventually came to the conclusion that the only way to answer that criticism was to use a real roulette wheel and real dealers, and stream the game from a studio in what became known as the Live casino option. Clearly this option had the effect of increasing their costs and they therefore needed to increase the minimum table stakes for casino games played in the Live casino mode, but for many people this is a minor price to pay. Certainly the Live casino option has proved popular and a few online casinos such as the All Irish casino have even taken the Live casino principle one step further by actually streaming some of their casino games from a real casino based in Malta. This is the closest yet to creating the atmosphere of a real casino when playing casino games online, but neither option is suitable for everyone. The higher stakes and the inevitable time limit on placing bets, particularly in roulette mean that there are many people who prefer to play their casino games at their own pace, and accept that an RNG will pick the winning numbers. At least we now all have a choice.
