6 Perks of Playing with Live Dealers

Five years ago, Cafe Casino launched in the United States with a mission: Give the people what they want. The best casino games in the business? We’ve got hundreds of them. Fast and secure payments, including Bitcoin? Absolutely. Now we’re taking things to another level with our Cafe Casino Live Dealer games. This is the next big wave for internet gaming; you can play live Blackjack, Baccarat, Super 6 and Roulette, all from the comfort of your home – or on the go using your mobile device.

That’s right: live casino games. All you have to do is enter your Cafe Casino login, open up the Live Dealer casino menu, and take your seat at the table. Not only will you get to interact with actual human dealers (as well your fellow players), you’ll also have access to many of the same perks that you’ll find at bricks-and-mortar casinos, but without the added travel costs and other hassles. Here’s a quick preview of what you can expect when you play Live Dealer casino games here at Cafe.

1- Side Betting and Back Betting Features

One of the biggest features of live gaming is all the extra bets you can make. There’s a wider range of side bets available with our live Blackjack and Baccarat live games than you’ll find at the standard online tables. You’ll also have access to back betting, where you bet on other players at the table. This is one of the key reasons why Live Dealer is such a rewarding social experience – and yet another opportunity to score big with a timely wager.

For example, when you open up a Live Dealer Blackjack game, you’ll see three additional betting areas on the felt, each marked with a letter. The “R” stands for the Rummy side bet, which pays out at 9/1 whenever your two hole cards and the Dealer’s up-card make a three-card straight, flush or set. The “P” represents the Pairs side bet, where you get an 11/1 payout when you get dealt two cards of the same rank. And the “T” is a special Tip bet; if you win that hand, we’ll double your tip and give it to the dealer.

If you see a player on a hot streak and you want to ride them with a back bet, tap/click the box that says Enable Back Betting – you’ll see the list of eligible players – then place your bets the same way you would if you were betting on yourself. Remember, whatever decisions that player makes, you must follow, so consider taking a moment to study their style of play before jumping on board.

2- Interact With Other Players and Your Dealer

Back betting isn’t the only way to interact when you play games with a live dealer. Cafe Casino also lets you chat with the dealer and the other players by tapping/clicking the Chat & Notifications icon and using the text box that pops up. Please be friendly when you interact; to ensure that everyone has a good time, we’ll revoke the chat privilege for anyone who abuses it. If you’re not feeling very social at the moment, that’s fine too – your dealer will continue to recognize your existence at the table, and although you can see them, they can’t see you.

3- Choose Your Dealer

Speaking of our dealers, there’s a highly-trained staff waiting to serve you at Cafe Casino. When you open up the Live Dealer menu, you’ll see a picture of the dealer working each table at that time; different people like different types of dealers, so if this is your first time at the live tables, give several of them a try and see which ones suit you best. We even have live attendants on hand to help you at the live dealer roulette wheel for both American and European Roulette. Don’t forget to use that Tip bet when you want to reward your dealer for their quality service – there’s also a separate tip box on the table if you want to tip them directly.

4- Games Feel More Like Real Life

It’s always fun to play the games at Cafe Casino, but when you want that added human touch, Live Dealer is as close to real life as you’ll find on the internet. It’s not just the side bets and the interactive features; Live Dealer lets you see actual cards on the table, and actual roulette wheels in motion. You also get the sights and sounds of the live casino space, as well as the Dealers themselves. And you get it all without having to worry about parking fees or dress codes.

5- Great Variety of Games You Can Play

Live Dealer currently offers the four games we mentioned earlier: Blackjack, Baccarat, Super 6 and Roulette. The blackjack games include a special version called Blackjack Early Payout, where you have the option to end the hand early and get paid an amount that’s based on the strength of your cards and the dealer’s up-card. Blackjack Early Payout also shows you the basic strategy for Blackjack, so if you’re new to the game, this is a great way to learn how to make all the right moves at the table.

6- You Can Play Live Dealer on Your Mobile

There was a time when you had to be chained at your desk to play online. Here at Cafe Casino, mobile gaming has taken the lead; you can still play on your desktop, but you also have the freedom to play using your smartphone and tablet. All the same great games are available, so give Live Dealer a try today and see why this is the next big thing in online casino gaming. As always, our FAQ and Help guides have more information for you. Stay tuned for more informative articles here at Cafe, and enjoy yourself at the tables!
