Like the convenience of online casinos but want the experience of a live dealer? The DraftKings online casino has a solution.
The online casino that is offered in New Jersey, Pennsylvania and West Virginia recently added a live dealer option for several of its games.
That means users can play from their home while wearing pajamas and interact with a real person dealing the cards and spinning the roulette wheel.
DraftKings live dealer games offered on several types of games
The casino platform offers several games with live dealers, and it says more will be added in the future.
For now, users can play ultimate Texas hold ‘em (one-on-one against a dealer), blackjack, baccarat, three-card poker, side bet city and dream catcher, which features a dealer spinning a large wheel with numbers that can be bet on. A live dealer is currently not offered for Texas hold ‘em with other players.
All the games offer a variety of minimum and maximum betting options.
How to play
Finding a live dealer game on the DraftKings website or app is easy. Just click on the ‘live dealer’ link and select what game you want to play.
What DraftKings PA Casino live dealer games looks like
Goodbye avatars, hello live dealer.
For users new to the experience – and especially those who have never played in an in-person casino before – it might be a little surreal at first. Once you pick your seat, the dealer will welcome you to the table and the software will prompt you to place your bet, just like a normal online game.
Players can interact with the dealer through chat and even give them a tip.
Dealers look straight ahead at a screen that displays the bets and any messages that players put in the chat screen.
Unlike games featuring computer dealers, expect a little bit of a delay between your bets and when the dealer completes the action.
DraftKings offers ‘VIP’ rooms
There are two types of live dealers on the DraftKings website. On shared tables, players can compete and play with others across various casino networks that are using the same software.
The second is tables that are just for DraftKings players. The platform offers tables that are open 24/7. DraftKings says players can think of this as the ‘VIP’ rooms where users “have access to the best quality tables.”
Bonuses available for first-time players
The DraftKings PA online sportsbook is giving players an extra perk when signing up. Register today and make a deposit to receive a matching deposit up to $250.
The minimum deposit is $5 and the max $250, and DraftKings will match in the form of DK dollars, which can be cashed in once you have wagered at least 1x the bonus.
