According to the new Live Dealer section at, there are 147 different live dealer games offered by 46 game providers at 268 sites, and those numbers are growing on a regular basis.

Here we look at the top 10 types of live dealer games for players to enjoy, along with a few examples of each type.

7. Dice Games
Live Dealer Dice Games really can add the feeling of being in a land-based casino. There are online dice games where you can click a button and the dice will roll for you, but with live dealer dice games, a dealer will roll for you, making it more of an in-person gambling experience.

Craps can be a complicated game for those who are not familiar with it, but for those who are, live dealer craps is basically the same game as craps in a casino. However, there is a dealer who is the shooter for everyone participating at the online craps table...

4. Blackjack

However, playing Live Dealer Blackjack allows for that luxury. Most players know the purpose of blackjack is everyone against the dealer, essentially...

3. Poker
Sitting at a poker table and being able to communicate with the others at the table and the dealer is always an enjoyable time, especially if you have a large chip stack. In Live Dealer Poker, there are many camera feeds and chat rooms that allow you to have that communication with fellow players and the dealer at the table. There are several types of poker in a live casino, just as there are in a land-based casino.

Live Casino Hold’em is a combination of Texas Hold’em and Blackjack. It is like blackjack because in this version, you are not playing against other players at the table, but against the dealer’s hand. The rest of the game is played like Texas Hold’em. You receive two cards, and there are rounds of betting before the flop, turn and river and a final round after the river is flipped. The goal of the game is to have a better five-card hand than the dealer.

2. European Roulette
Live European Roulette has a live dealer who will spin the wheel and cycle the ball around the wheel, just like in brick-and-mortar casinos. In European Roulette, the wheel has 37 pockets with just one zero...

1. Roulette
One of the most common live dealer games is roulette, which includes American Roulette. American Roulette features a wheel with 38 pockets. It includes numbers 1-36 and two green pockets labeled 0 and 00. Pockets 1-36 have equal numbers of red and black pockets. American Roulette is exactly the same as European Roulette, but with the addition of a 00 pocket. It is played the same way, with a live dealer spinning the wheel and cycling the ball around the wheel until the ball lands in a pocket to determine the winning bets.

So, if you are looking to play online with the luxury of having a live dealer and being able to communicate with them and other players, then these games should be on your list.
