It is interesting to spot trends like the growth of live online blackjack in the gaming industry. More and more casinos are offering the live blackjack experience to people in the comfort of their own homes. With more and more people on faster internet connections, this is now an increasing option that casinos can afford and players can enjoy without having to make the trip to the land based casinos.
So why is it popular? Well live online blackjack bridges that experience of having the human interaction and fun of chatting to a live person, without that business of getting out of the house and driving to a casino specifically to gamble. It perhaps feels less like gambling than making that decision to go into a brick and mortar casino and have to go through the process of registration.
The second piece of interesting psychology is that live online blackjack somehow feels more honest. Even though casinos and their software providers have to go through independent auditing and testing which prove they are both random, fair and make the payouts listed, people do feel more comfortable with a live, human being dealing their cards and drawing them from the shoe.
There is no increase in the advantage to the player as the house will still use several decks of cards rather the one, so the famous idea of card counting won’t help the player. Many casinos also offer single seat blackjack with their live dealers, so you feel like you have a personal service.
With more bandwidth available to all, it seems like live online blackjack will only grow in popularity as people seek that person to person touch for their gaming experience. For instance, in Finland, there are more players playing live blackjack than any other country in Scandinavia. More accurate information can be found at Nettikasinot Suomi.
