Bet365 Live Dealer Casino Review

By now you’ve probably heard some of the rumors about the launch of Bet365.com and their exciting new live dealer casino, and it may come as a surprise that their live dealer blackjack, roulette, and baccarat is already open and ready for immediate wagers. Games like online craps, Pai Gow, Texas Hold’em, and three card poker will be soon to follow, and this trend-setting move already has the gambling world in a frenzy. Never before has the action of a live casino been so fast and easy to win, and now the action will take place right at your personal computer 24 hours a day, whenever you’re ready to play.


This type of gaming experience has never before been possible for the average player so here is a quick FAQ about Bet365.com and their new live dealer tables-

What does Bet365 mean by the term “live dealer?”

This is no promotional gimmick or fancy advertising, because at Bet365 each live dealer game takes place from inside an actual brick and mortar casino. Through groundbreaking technologies that have never before been viewed on the internet, Bet365’s attractive young dealers will appear before you right inside your living room in real time; meaning that you can now bet on live games like blackjack and baccarat as they take place inside their casino.

How does this technology work?

Each live dealer game has a series of webcams positioned around the betting tables so that players are given unprecedented views of the actual casino action as it unfolds. The hands being dealt at the various tables are the hands that internet players actually wager on, and Bet 365 is the first to ever offer this experience.

Is the video a recording of previously dealt hands?

No. Everything the player sees before him is happening in real time and each female dealer is overseeing the wagers of other internet customers that are logged in at the same time you are. Of course, if you’re not completely sure if the dealer is really there in real time, just type “hi” inside the chat box or ask the female dealer a question…she will be happy to answer.

How do I keep track of what’s going on?

This new technology may be best described as a hybrid between traditional casino betting and gambling on any other website. Both elements are present to make the transition towards what live dealer betting on the internet has to offer, and combined this format allows for more hands than on any other table.

What does the tables actually look like?

If you’ve ever placed a wager online or inside a traditional brick and mortar casino, then there will be elements that you’ll be very familiar with. In the top center of the screen will be the live webcam feed which will show the dealer, the playing tables, and each game being played out from start to finish. To the sides there will be statistical information on the game itself, instructions on how to play, and the odds for each bet. The bottom of the screen will show the betting options, your casino balance, any wagers you’ve placed on that hand, and a digital display of the game being played.

How do I place a wager?

Placing bets is very simple and it only takes seconds to bet just about any amount. Click on the desired chip stack and then click on the bet you wish to place…that’s all there is to it.

How are bets paid at the table?

Part of why the action moves so quickly at live dealer tables is because all bets are paid out automatically by the state-of-the-art software that accompanies the programming. While the dealer verifies each bet and congratulates players on each of their wins, she does not actually handle any funds except when a tip is given.

What about strategy? Can I play however I want?

In skill games like blackjack, the dealer will recommend each move based on the standard formula that all professional players follow. The same advice is also indicated by the highlighted option within the betting panel, but this in no way means that you can not implement your own strategies instead. The only exception is when moves are made that would almost certainly lose; like trying to take a hit on a hard 19 or 20. Other than that, you can split, double down, or stand on a hand as you see fit.

Are there any restrictions on who can place a wager?

Yes. All participants must be eighteen years of age or older to participate in any form of online gambling. Additionally, Bet365 respects all jurisdictional laws regarding online wagers.

How do I make a deposit?

After your account is successfully registered, simply follow the instructions to deposit money through the cashier via credit card or money wiring service. Please note; US players and some other jurisdictions are not legally allowed to withdraw proceeds from the website. Please check local laws or Bet365 for additional details regarding your local regulations.
