Live Online Blackjack Dealers

When online blackjack was introduced in the 1990's, it was not initially popular because it did not feature live dealers. Players had doubts about the randomness of cards being dealt and stayed away. Over time their fears were assuaged and online blackjack became popular. However live online blackjack dealers were still being missed because live dealing simulates a casino environment and this makes players feel good.

Online blackjack enables players to gamble from the comfort of their homes away from the formidable atmosphere of the casino. But it takes away the glamour as well. Live dealers blackjack brings back the glamour but keeps away the stiff forbidding atmosphere. When live dealers were introduced some years back regular sized cards were used. Players could not clearly see the cards being dealt. Live dealer games have now corrected this drawback by using large size cards.

The larger casinos have as many as twenty live dealer blackjack tables with a variety of betting options to suit all pockets. A player can choose the table he wants from the menu and join the players already gambling on that table. The table displays each person's screen name.
