On Live-Dealer Blackjack Games

A recent trend in the online gambling industry is live-dealer games. They started in a few casinos and now can be found in many places. Those games allow you to watch a video feed of a real live dealer as you play the game, which makes the game more interactive, but are those games any good?

As far as your odds go, they are the same. Just because there is a live dealer now doesn’t mean you can count cards. Continuous shuffling and the random number generator would still negate that strategy. Really the only benefit of playing live-dealer games at the online casino is that the games are more interactive.

Instead of looking at a boring screen of a Togel Hongkong blackjack table that may or may not have avatars for you, the dealer and other players, you get to watch a dealer. It doesn’t hurt that the dealers tend to be attractive women. That makes the game more interesting and in addition to watching the video feed, in many cases you can hear the dealer and talk back to her. It makes the games more personable and more like playing in a brick and mortar casino.

Does that make the games better? Well, that’s up to you. The odds are no better or worse, so however you prefer to play is fine. Right now, the traditional games are still more popular than live-dealer blackjack games, but I think the live-dealer games will increase in popularity in time. Until then, I suggest trying it out to see if you like it. If not, switch back to the more traditional games. You have nothing to lose.

Montana to legalize blackjack?

A state representative in Montana has proposed a bill that would legalize blackjack, with revenue brought from the game to help pay for social services. Representative Tony Belcourt has introduced House Bill 423. The full title of the bill is six lines long (no, I’m not kidding), so I’ll call it “An Act Legalizing Blackjack” for short.

If passed, the bill would make it legal for Montana casinos to carry live blackjack tables. In order to offer those games, though, they would have to obtain permits. The money raised from permit fees would go toward the budget of the Montana Department of Health and Human Services. The DHHS is currently having its budget slashed by belt-tightening lawmakers in the state.

No high-stakes games would be allowed. The bill sets a $25 betting limit for blackjack games. The money from permit fees would be earmarked for funding specific programs outlined in the bill. Some of those programs include suicide prevention, services for the mentally ill, services for the disabled, child foster care services and more.

Currently live table games are illegal in Montana. The state has casinos, but they only carry video gambling machines, such as slots and video poker. Back in 1991, a bill to legalize blackjack was proposed and was rejected. No efforts to legalize the game have gotten a lot of support since then. With the Department of Health and Human Services seeing cuts to its budget and the state needing revenue, this might be the best time to do it.
