Roulette is no longer just about driving to the local casino and watching the dealer spin the wheel in person. With the advent of the Internet, not only can you play over the Internet, but new technology being offered by online casinos allowed to you play with a live dealer. How does it work? Let me explain.

A webcam is fixed upon a dealer, and they are strictly your dealer. It is not pre-recorded; it is live, and they spin the wheel whenever you want, and take your bets in real time. For people that don't necessarily trust a computer dealer, this is a nice compromise that allows you to play in the comfort of your own home, without having to worry about a computer dealer that may be "fixing" the spins.
