Classic Live Casino Games
To start off a game of Blackjack you must first place your bets. Then, both you and the dealer will be dealt 2 cards each. Add the value of your 2 cards together and that's the value of your hand. The aim in live Blackjack is simple, get the hand with a value closest to 21 and you win. You will only be able to see 1 of the dealer’s 2 cards. Based on the information you currently hold (the value of your hand and the value of the dealer’s 1st card) you must make a decision to either hit or stand. If you stand, no more cards will be dealt to you and the dealer will reveal his second card. If you hit, you will be dealt one more card before the dealer reveals the value of his hand. If anyone's hand exceeds the value if 21, that person has automatically lost the game. If no one’s hand exceeds 21 it’s the person with a hand value closest to 21 that wins the game.
Some people like to have a strategy behind their bets when playing Roulette and some think it’s a game of chance and no strategy is needed. How you bet and how you play is completely up to you, but here are some basic instructions. Before the wheel can spin, all players must place their bets. There are many different ways to bet in Roulette. For example you can bet on colours, numbers, sections or patterns. You can choose inside or outside bets, where outside bets have a higher probability to generate a win and inside bets can generate bigger wins. You can bet on all even or odd numbers. Once you have made your decision, select a chip value and place the chip on the number or combination you wish to bet on. Once you’re ready, the croupier will then spin the wheel and drop the marble, once the marble stops the croupier will announce the winner!
As with most casino games, the first thing to do is to place your bets. The aim of Baccarat is to bet on the hand that, at the end of the game, will be the closest to 9. You can also choose to place your bets on the outcome of a tie. You are playing directly against the banker in this game. Once you've placed your bets, the banker will deal 2 cards to you and 2 to himself. The value of both hands will show on the screen next to the table. If one hand scores an 8 or a 9 this is called a natural win and the game will end. If there was no natural win, a third card will be dealt and the winner will be the person who placed their bets on the winning hand, the hand with a value closest to 9.
Untraditional Live Casino Games
Live Dream Catcher
Live Dream Catcher is an online casino game completely based on chance. The game consists of a big colourful spinning wheel with 54 equal segments, all marked with a number and a unique colour for each number. Apart from the numbers there are silver coloured segments which contain a 2x multiplier and gold coloured segments which contain a 7x multiplier. All you need to do to play is to place your bet on any number, the live dealer will then spin the wheel and when the wheel stops the winning number will be displayed at the top. The following numbers are available on the wheel: 1, 2, 5, 10 and 40. The payout odds are linked to the number, for example number 5 pays 5/1 and number 10 pays 10/1 and so on. If the wheel stops on a multiplier, all bets will freeze and the wheel will spin again, with the multiplier being used on the final winning number. If the wheel stops on a multiplier again, the same thing will happen, until the wheel stops on a segment containing a number.
Now when you have familiarised yourself with Live Dream Catcher let us introduce to you, Monopoly Live! This game is based around the same features as Live Dream Catcher, the same spinning wheel with 54 segments, the same numbers available to bet on and the same outcome if the wheel lands on a single number. So what’s new? Joining the game is Mr Monopoly himself, adding an entertaining bonus round, the Monopoly Live Bonus Game! To trigger the bonus round, the wheel must stop on the segment called ‘2 Rolls’ or ‘4 Rolls’. This will send Mr Monopoly onto his virtual Monopoly board. Mr Monopoly will run around the board after each roll of the dice, any property he lands on will represent a different prize. After all rolls have been completed, all winnings will be added together and awarded to the players who placed their bets on the winning segment that triggered the bonus!
Super Sic Bo
Super Sic Bo is also a game of chance. This online dice game has got its roots in ancient China, but has made its way around the world thanks to online casinos like Slotto. Even though the game only consists of a set of 3 dice there are more than 200 different outcomes and 50 different ways to bet. To make this game even better, random multipliers have been added. To place a bet simply drag your chips and place them on your chosen position on the table. Once all bets are placed the dice will be set in motion. The winner will be announced by the host.
