Playing casino games online is a fulfilling experience, yet it often lacks interactivity and the social element you can experience when you are playing at a brick and mortar casino. Some players enjoy being isolated from the crowd and all the fuss surrounding the table, but others miss this.
For those who enjoy interacting with both the dealers and their fellow players at the table, live casino games have a live chat facility to encourage such communication. Through live chat, remote players can commentate on the game and address the dealer who will give an oral response to their comments. Keep reading if you wish to learn how to chat in a live casino.
Why Use Live Chat?
One is not obligated to use the live chat facility during gameplay. This is an optional feature that players can use to feel more connected to each other and their dealer during the session.
With the live chat active, the game becomes more sociable and fun. One can engage with others and create a more enjoyable experience for everyone involved, including the dealer.
Most dealers aren’t just there to get the job done. They are talkative and they like to interact with players at the table, even if they are not physically present in the room. Instead, they will be sending messages, thus maintaining open communication throughout.
Live Casino Software with Live Chat
Today’s live casino software packages usually come with an integrated text-based messaging system that lets you communicate with the dealer overseeing the game and other players with whom you are sharing the table.
Some software may include pop-up live chat widgets, but in most cases you will see the chat window as part of the gaming interface of the game you are playing, regardless if it is live roulette, live blackjack, live poker or any other format.
Do’s and Don’ts of Using Live Casino Chat
When you join the table, the dealer will greet you. It would be nice if you would also say hello to everyone and be polite. It is also frowned upon if any of the players are rude to the dealer.
Sometimes when they are losing, players can react poorly and be rude to someone who isn’t to blame. The dealer is not responsible for you having a bad streak or a bad day entirely.
Joking and laughing is very much encouraged, so if you feel like you are in the mood for some healthy humour, go for it. Furthermore, be responsible and cautious enough not to reveal any personal information in the chat (real name, address, phone number).
When chatting, stick to the theme, which is the ongoing game. This is not a general chat where you can discuss subjects like politics, religion or sexual habits. Players who are disrespectful can be banned from the chat and even from the casino site completely.
Initiating the Chat
Starting the chat is easy as pie. Look for the chat box somewhere in the screen corners or on the side of the screen. You will see an instruction in pale letters that says something along the lines of “Type here to chat” or “Write your message here” or similar.
Navigate your cursor there and start writing. Your message will be displayed in the box under your nickname and the dealer will also see it on their monitor. The dealer will verbally reply to your comment, question or complaint. You can use the chat freely during the game whenever you feel like it.
