Online casinos have been around since approximately 1994 with some casino groups celebrating over 15 years of being online.
In the early 2000s, there has been an influx of webcam casinos as they used to be called in the day.
Some of the older live dealer casinos were known as CasinoWebCam while another one was called LondonsCasino which ironically is out of business. Although these casinos appear to have been leading the way they never really became as popular as everyone expected.
With live dealer casinos, players know that the games are more legitimate than the RNG casinos where players always have in the back of their mind the thought that maybe someone is rigging the games to rip them off.
Most casinos don't want to lose the trust of their players and some casinos have added live blackjack, live roulette, and live baccarat to their portfolio of games.
Some casinos are even just providing live dealer games only. More regular RNG casinos are adding the live dealer games to their portfolio to provide the complete online casino experience.
Players now have a choice between playing against the machine or playing with a live casino dealer showing the cards or spinning the roulette wheel. More players will start trusting casinos in general by having these games on hand even if they don't play them.
Some of the live dealers are actually played and broadcast in real land-based casinos.
Take for example DublinBet casino which features broadcast live games in Fitwilliam Casino in Dublin, Ireland.
Below is a shortlist of casino reviews of online casinos that are either primarily live dealer casinos or that offer the games in addition to their casino.
