Even though the game of Blackjack has been around for ages, hundreds of years in fact, however the Live Dealer Blackjack games are a relatively new addition. Live Dealer Blackjack games were even a late addition to the Online Casino world, having only been introduced in the latter parts of 2006, whereas the Online Casino has been with us since the early 1990’s and it was introduced because there were many people who loved the idea of the Online Casino, but were sceptical about the fairness and reliability of the programmes and random number generators that were used to run the various games, preferring the interaction and live game play of the many Live UK Casino Games that were on offer at the many Online Casinos.
Blackjack and the Live Dealer Online Casinos
Before the introduction of the Live Dealer Online Casinos all the UK Casino Games were being run by random number generators and various clever computer programmes that would handle all aspects of the games such as the shuffling, the dealing and the counting. This led to many queries and concerns being raised with the Online Casino community in regards to the trustworthiness and reliability of the programmes, especially when they were on a particularly bad losing streak as all their misfortune would be heaped on the shoulders of the programmes. This led to the introduction of Live UK Casino Games in the early parts of 2006 by the Dublin based company VueTec. They were able to bridge the gap between the convenience of the Online Casino and the interaction of land based casinos by providing a Dealer to handle all aspects of a Live Dealer Blackjack game and interact with the players via web link, creating what was later affectionately dubbed as a casa casino (home casino)
How to play Live Dealer Blackjack
Blackjack in itself is one of the easiest UK Casino Games to learn, understand and play and Live Dealer Blackjack games are no different. Everything works in exactly the same way as traditional casino floor Blackjack Games and Online Casino Games, the only difference being that you effectively have a land based dealer, dealing the cards whilst you sit in the comfort of your very own home. The aim of Live Dealer Blackjack is to get 21 or as close to it, with the winner being the person that has managed to do just that. The game begins with the player placing a bet (remember to check table minimums and maximums), you will then be dealt two cards, and the dealer will deal two for himself. At this point you can either chose to “stick” if you feel your hand is good enough, or “hit” if you feel your hand would benefit from another card, remembering that any cards that total more than 21 will be considered bust and you would immediately lose the game. At this point the dealer will do the same and whoever has 21 or closest to it will win. In the event of a tie all the bets will be pushed and whoever wins the next round will win the whole pot
Live Dealer Blackjack and you
Live Dealer Blackjack is for anyone who loves UK Casino Games and for those who love playing Blackjack, but are unable to get to one of the more traditional land based casinos to do so. The convenience of Live Dealer Blackjack games makes it possible for anybody and everybody to play Blackjack, no matter where in the world you live. In the past it was extremely difficult for many people to get in a few games, especially if you were living in a state or country that has yet to legalise gambling, or if you were unlucky enough to live too far away from a land based casino to justify playing Blackjack on a regular basis as it would simply be too expensive to travel thousands of miles or spend entire weekends in casinos, every week, preferring instead to sit in complete comfort, at home, playing Live Dealer Blackjack.
