On the 17th of June 2009, Platinum Play Online Casino launched its first Live Dealer capability on several online table games.
Live Dealer has become an alternative feature to the usual Random Number Generation (RNG) aspects employed in most all online games. RNGs mimic number randomisations to near perfection and at high speeds, churning out almost infinite computations. Live Dealer in general is targeted at the Asian markets, with research indicating that the trend to trust in RNGs is not a very favourable one in said markets. Live Dealer is an attempt to offset this distrust, and in the process also provides a more interactive aspect to popular online casino table games.
Powered and supported by Microgaming, Live Dealer also comes with Instant Play, an option where a player can immediately access Live Dealer functionality from any website or online casino brand that supports it. The platform is currently supported on the Viper, T3, Zero Footprint and I-Café operators.
With an aim at placating the needs of the Asian markets, Live Dealer is already available in English, as well as Japanese, traditional and simplified Chinese. The games that currently afford Live Dealer capability are standard online baccarat, zero commission baccarat, a Dragon Bonus Side Bet variation played separate but in conjunction with the baccarat games and lastly, European roulette. The most immediate addition to this line-up is multi-player European blackjack, with a near-future release being scheduled.
Some additional features to the Live Dealer platform include archiving of Live Dealer footage, multi-currency support, casino-specific player account funding and PlayCheck report functionality, to ensure a level of security and privacy as stringently and comprehensively managed as with any online institution handling financial transactions.
For more information, simply access the Platinum Play Online Casino website, download the casino software and try out a Live Dealer-run game in person.
