Over the last few years, live dealer games have become more and more popular. In case you've been living under a rock, these stream games with live dealers onto your phone or PC. They're completely interactive and it's just like being in an actual casino. The appeal is that you can enjoy the bricks and mortar casino atmosphere without getting up from your sofa. Though all table games are very popular with live dealer games, one that hasn't fared well are the live dealer slot machines. In fact, it's been the least played live dealer game ever invented. The question is why did it fail where others have succeeded.
The worst casino bets are the one's made without understanding how the casino actually works. Everyone knows that the casino is a business. And to stay in profit, to be able to pay the rent and wages of their workers, they need to make money. How do they do that? Simply be having a "house edge". That is a mathematical couple of % points over the gambler. Most slots and games machine have a RTP (Return to Player) number written on them. This says exactly how much money you'll get back from a certain spend. Say the RTP player is 98%. Then for every $100 you put in, you'll get 98 cents back. The house edge in this case is 2%. But remember that this is over time. A long, long time. And that's because it's an average.
