Playing Live Games on an Online Casino

If you know about online casinos, then you’ll know that the vast majority of games that you can play have fixed odds games where you simply play against a computer-driven algorithm. There are exceptions to this rule, however, particularly when it comes to tabletop games such as blackjack, roulette and poker.

There are two main types of live games that you’ll find at an online casino, open games and invitational games. We will explain what both of these are and how you can play them in this article.

What Are Open Games?

An open game at an online casino is one that you can play without being invited. There will either be a certain number of slots that are filled for free on a first come, first served basis or there will be a buy-in that any player has to put on the table before they are able to play.

The main thing to be aware of before you agree to play in one of these games is how many rounds there are and how long it will take you to play the entire game. Some of these games can go on for hours and if you leave halfway through, you will generally have to forfeit and won’t be able to get your buy-in refunded. Make sure that you are in it for the long haul before you get started.

Invitational Games

These games can only be played by invited players and sometimes spectators will stop by just to watch the action. Wondering how you can get invited? The best strategy is to put in a good performance at a few of the open games that we mentioned earlier. If you start to make a name for yourself in these fields, then there is a good chance that the game operators will want to include you in their more prestigious tournaments. Do well in them, and there is a chance that you will become a VIP at the casino and start to receive lucrative benefits, which can include vacations and trips to real-world casinos.
