William Hill Sign Up ButtonThe casino industry has come a long way, with regard to both quantity and quality. Once limited to affluent neighborhoods of certain large cities, brick-and-mortar venues are now present in virtually any country and are affordable to people of many financial statuses. Online casinos, too, have witnessed one boom after another since being introduced during the late 1990s. The availability of a large number of games and their further variations made them very attractive and the low costs associated with playing got one thinking that perhaps land based casinos don’t make that much sense anymore. William Hill Live CasinoBut virtual games, however diverse and exciting, can hardly compensate for the traditional casino atmosphere. Yes, there are no driving costs, no exorbitant food & drinks charges and no extensive planning that has to be done ahead of time. The player simply logs in, places bets and sees the action unfold. But the unique casino setting is reduced to colorful webpages crammed with the main products. William Hill Live CasinoIs there a way to combine the two, to get the best of both worlds? Yes! It’s called Live Casino and while it may not imitate the noise and commotion to be found at a typical brick-and-mortar establishment, it absolutely brings about the feeling of playing in a real casino due to its croupiers, tables and room set-up. This innovative concept requires exertion and constant dedication in order to be successful: even though not as expensive as land-based casinos, live online ones still need many professionals and high-performance technology to keep running well. At least three rooms are necessary: a live studio, an analyst’s room and a software one. Then, at least one cameraman is required, along with multiple croupiers, a pit boss and an IT manager that could rapidly solve any technical problems.

WILLIAM HILL’S LIVE CASINO

Some companies go as far as setting up their own television channels where they can host their live casinos; remote controls can be used to place bets. Others prefer to limit this type of casinos to their websites, William Hill among them. While the firm employs other media than the Internet, it only does so in the case of sports betting, its staple product. The William Hill Live Casino is great without being on TV, though, especially when considering that it can also be played on an iPad. The graphic design of the webpages is simple yet attractive and leaving nothing to be desired, any game is only one click away! Live Casino LogoFor those less familiar with live casinos, video tutorials are available, wherein a few clips (each around 2 minutes long) everything that needs to be known about playing live casino games is clearly explained. The FAQ section provides information of this nature, too, along with some technical details. If questions still linger, go to the Rules section and see detailed descriptions of roulette, baccarat and blackjack played in the live format. Due to high maintenance costs and so many other expenses associated with running a live casino, slots are altogether absent from it and the main available games are blackjack, baccarat, roulette and casino hold’em (sic bo could be found at certain live casinos, too). After all, these are the games where a live atmosphere makes a significant difference; slots cannot be placed in that category, nor can any other casual games that the player attends to by himself even in a brick-and-mortar venue.
