FanDuel online casino Live Dealer
Live Dealer games in Pennsylvania are powered by Evolution Gaming, the world’s largest supplier of live casino games. Live dealer games like blackjack and roulette made their much-anticipated debut in Pennsylvania in the fall of 2020.
Some of the reasons players like playing Live Dealer games is because they get to play from the comfort of their own home, trust that cards are drawn fairly and unlimited seating.
The Live Dealer studio allows FanDuel to offer players exclusive promotions, live updates and dynamic states. A press release from FanDuel says that “the FanDuel Live Dealer Games will be attractive to both experienced and novice players.”
The user interface guides players in what bets they can place and even shows potential winnings.
Live Dealer gives new (and experienced) players to casino games an idea of how to navigate at their own pace. It can be less intimidating for some. Reps from FanDuel noted that Live Dealer games at online casinos do not cannibalize land-based casinos. It can give players newfound confidence when they are ready to play at a brick-and-mortar casino.
Although some tables will have limited seats, most of them will allow betting behind, meaning that you’ll always be able to join a live dealer casino game in some regard. There are also “infinite” variants that uncap the number of players who can join a table, and you can play along (potentially) with dozens of other people.
FanDuel PA online casino has seven branded blackjack tables with a $50 minimum and max $5,000 bet. It also has one branded-infinite blackjack with a $1 minimum and one FanDuel-themed roulette table ($50 min).
