The Best of Both Worlds: Playing Casino Games with Live Dealer

Until you try them, playing Live Dealer games online might seem alien.

We all instinctively draw a sharp line between digital and real life experiences. While walking that line may not seem comfortable, DraftKings’ Live Dealer tables give the user the best of both worlds; the comfort of online casino games combined with the security and interactivity of the brick-and-mortar alternative..

This article will give you a chance to understand what Live Dealer is and what its benefits are, so you can feel secure while you play.


It’s exactly what it sounds like. You’re connected by live camera feed to a real, live, human dealer of the casino game of your choice. If you’d like, you can chat with them and watch them deal in real time on a table in a real game studio.


To access these live dealer tables, you merely click the “Live Dealer” tab on the left panel of the DraftKings Casino Lobby, at which point you’ll be offered an option of Baccarat, Blackjack, Roulette, Poker, Game Shows, Infinite Blackjack or DraftKings Exclusives. From there, you can go wherever you want. The possibilities are more or less endless.


There are a lot of things to love about the brick-and-mortar casino experience, but there some parts the online version just does better:

  • There’s no commute. No weighing in the drive home, no wiped out buddies telling you they want to leave before you’re ready. 
  • Wear what you want, sit where you want, eat or drink what you want. You will never need to wait for a seat. DraftKings Live Dealer tables offer an unlimited number of seats. 
  • With the unlimited space of the online world comes unlimited space for assorted games. Speed Bac, Speed Roulette, Casino Hold Em (which is coming soon)...the live casino seldom has the table space to dedicate to the games that suit your more particular tastes. That’s never going to be a problem here! 
  • Most casino tables eventually close. DraftKings’ tables are open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Your betting options aren’t limited to high minimums or fixed rates. Live Dealer table minimums go as low as $0.10 and as high as $500. 
  • Our blackjack high-rollers can request the Crown Suite, an exclusive, single-player table we created when we heard the kind of complaints you’ll hear at the live casino about a questionable mathematical play ruining the game for the rest of the table.


You may love playing casino games online and if you do, DraftKings Lobby has you more than covered. If you enjoy the live casino experience but aren’t big on online casinos, though? We can give you a few reasons Live Dealer might be a different story:

A real live dealer...

Live Dealer offers a human element and it’s more than the comfort of looking a human dealer in the eyes, if that’s how you choose to play The DraftKings Casino lobby is DraftKings-exclusive. Most live dealer products are operated by third parties who bring together players from multiple sites. We don’t sell access externally; that means every person you sit down with is someone you can compare daily fantasy notes, thoughts or even tips with while you play. Every other player at your DraftKings Live Dealer table is a potential connection and you can feel free to chat about the hand you’re playing, your picks for that day’s NFL, NBA or MLB slate or anything in between and you can always agree to meet again and keep trading info. At DraftKings, you can connect with that smart NFL guy you played with the other day or your best friend. Either way, you can both chat with the dealer, chat with one another or do both, and that’s an experience the traditional online casino just can’t duplicate. It’s a chance to be a part of a growing community.
