Australian online casino Joe Fortune Casino has announced that it will begin to offer live dealer games on its website. In a press release, Joe Fortune Casino said that players will now be offered the ability to play casino games featuring a live dealer, just like in a land-based casino.
Joe Fortune is set to offer live dealers for games like Blackjack, European Roulette, American Roulette, Super 6, Baccarat and several others. The casino did not elaborate on which other games will feature live dealers, though it sounds as though the option will be expansive.
One popular criticism when it comes to online casinos is that they do not offer all of the same services that you will see at a brick-and-mortar casino. Being able to enjoy some casual smalltalk with a dealer and other players is something that is typically missing from the online experience. However, the addition of live dealers helps make the experience more immersive for players. The number of internet operators offering live dealers has grown over the years, and Joe Fortune is the latest to get in on the trend.
Now, instead of working with a computer, Joe Fortune gives players the chance to play with a real person through their monitor. Rather than having to travel all the way to your nearest casino, Joe Fortune is expanding the experience and bringing it to the comfort of your own home. So, you get the perks of playing at a real casino without having to leave your house.
Joe Fortune has not yet confirmed whether they will be utilizing a third party. Most operators that offer the live dealer option contract independent companies such as HoGaming or Evolution Gaming.
On their website, Joe Fortune says the new live dealer games will allow players to “enjoy an interactive gaming experience where real dealers call last bets and a live stream brings the table to you. It’s all about creating more excitement that looks, feels and sounds like the real thing.”
There is no land-based Joe Fortune casino, but the dealers are real people offering real money casino games. Players will be able to see the action happening at tables using a live stream using Optical Character Recognition technology. If it sounds fancy, it’s because it is.
The addition of a human element to Joe Fortune figures to help attract new players while keeping returning customers happy. Rather than dealing with a robotic computer, infusing a human element brings an added sense of comfort and excitement. Live dealers will help bring a more lively atmosphere to the convenience of betting from home. Seeing a dealer spin a real life roulette wheel has a lot more aesthetic appeal than seeing an automated wheel spinning.
You can even tip your live bettor virtually if you enjoyed your experience. While the live dealer cannot see you physically, players do have the ability to chat with the dealer via a chat box. The dealer can see your display name and may welcome and greet you by name for an added sense of personal touch.
