Live dealer casino gaming is big business at the moment but with many fully featured desktop online casinos still not even offering full live gaming functionality, some players thought that they might be waiting a while for such games to hit their phone and tablet screens. We have been awaiting the addition of such games for quite a while, up until Bet365 Mobile Casino finally made it possible with a dedicated app for live mobile roulette and blackjack. However, one name on everybody’s lips at the moment in the mobile industry is Ladbrokes and they have gone two better by adding four live dealer games to their mobile casino.
The online betting operator has been in the news a lot recently, not least by becoming the first major name to sign partnerships with the industry’s big three, with Playtech and Net Entertainment added to their existing Microgaming licence. However, the addition of live dealer functionality is a development that really takes the brand to the next level among mobile players, even though the games themselves are only currently available on the iPad.
The games themselves cover all of the big names in live gaming, including blackjack, roulette, casino hold’em and baccarat. Each is of course played on a dedicated table and with a dedicated dealer, but the fact that players can enjoy the games from anywhere that they have a stable mobile internet connection is definitely something new to add to the mix. As with the desktop versions, mobile casino players can interact both with their dealer and others at the table in real time, adding a much vaunted social option to the traditionally solo pursuit of mobile casino gaming.
The games are backed up by all of the features that players have come to demand, such as recent histories – which is always handy when playing with a real roulette wheel – and statistics to see how the cards or ball are falling.
With plenty of new action and excitement on the horizon for mobile casino players, we expect the live dealer functionality that is being rolled out by Ladbrokes to hit the screens of many more mobile casinos. This means that no matter where you choose to play, you too could soon be taking advantage of one of the most immersive forms of online gambling in the world. With plans already in place to roll out the existing system to iPhones and all Android devices, the future of mobile live dealer gaming is certainly looking extremely bright at the moment.
