Live Casino Games – Are They Safe?
If you want to try your luck in Las Vegas, or if you want to have some fun while you are in Sin City, why not try a live casino online? In a live casino you can bet or fold, whichever way you prefer! However, do not expect a real casino to offer you free wagers, or to give you a combination of free spins that will leave you with at least a small profit (otherwise known as the house advantage). Live casinos will also differ from a machine in a real casino, in that they do not use a random number generator to decide when to place your bet. Instead, each time you place a bet, the dealer spins the wheel and lets you know just where you stand.
The advantage of a live online casino is that you can play at any time, day or night, as long as you are not too busy to take the stairs back to your room. Also, you do not have to worry about whether the hotel has a cashier who speaks English, or can give you a generous tip. Gambling is a very American thing, and most Americans consider the act of gambling to be acceptable. What is not acceptable, is the behavior of the people in the middle of an online gambling session! There are many stories of people literally harassing other players because they won, or simply for the thrill of it.
That does not mean that online roulette and live blackjack are inherently unsafe. But when you mix a large number of gamblers (pot odds are in effect “fixed” to the random number generator at each card dealt), with the emotion of anger and frustration, which is common in live casinos, things can get ugly fast. Play carefully, stay alert, and exercise a degree of common sense. And above all else, enjoy yourself! You will be glad you did.
