How Do Live Casinos Work
There are two types of real money online casinos that offer Live Dealer games - exclusively LD sites, and all casino and betting games platforms that also have Live Dealers. The first ones are usually owned, managed, and operated by the company that develops the software. The second ones are just web casinos that buy casino software, including software and access to streaming LD games. The majority of casino Live Dealer you will find in the web is of the second type.
As you probably already know, online casinos do not make their own casino games, unless the sites are actually owned by the software developing company. In all other cases, platforms collaborate with software providers and buy games from providers. In the case of LD games, the website buys software, access to, and the right for streaming from LD facility owned by another company.
LD facilities are expensive to operate and hard to manage; also, they require really complicated technical management, and extremely high quality of content and streaming - otherwise, such entertainment provided in poor quality makes no sense. The Dealers work in shifts, several hours per shift, and to get this job, they actually have to meet a lot of requirements, including a requirement for being physically attractive and a good interlocutor who can entertain people. Sometimes, they have to speak several languages, let alone they need to be ready to play the games professionally, and sometimes, they need to even be ready to cheat (unfortunately we have to admit that, too).
So, Live Dealers and facility management work really hard, long hours, and regardless of whether it is night or day at their location, because most facilities operate 24/7. The technical aspects of operation are crucial, because technical issues mean losing the clients immediately, and also gaining negative feedback among the online gamblers, the consequences of this negative feedback can last for months.
This is why owning and running a LD venue is hard and expensive, and only really rich and experienced software providers or operators can afford this. This is also the reason why many trusted Canadian online casinos still do not offer Live games streaming, or have few game titles available.
And because LD facilities are so expensive to run, and streaming is expensive to get access to, most web platforms do not provide bonuses on Live Games. You will also not be allowed to play Live Games in Demo mode; the access will be unlocked only for real money customers who deposits.
