Since the unprecedented arrival of the coronavirus pandemic in 2020, shockwaves have been felt across a plethora of industries.
The Live Casino is the latest and the best addition to PlayGrand Casino. This way you can enjoy some of your favorite games live-streamed from a land-based casino or a studio. Either way, you will have a real casino experience, as close as it can get.
Playing roulette live will allow you to experience all the excitement and drama that a land-based casino can offer you. You can choose one of the many variations of the game at PlayGrand Casino and enjoy it.
The gameplay is the same, except this time you have a real person in front of you. There are 37 pockets on the roulette wheel and you can place several different bets, on individual numbers as well as on groups of numbers. The most important thing you need to learn when it comes to playing roulette is the types of bets you can place. There are two main types of bets Inside and Outside bets. Inside bets are for players who like more of a challenge. They offer higher payouts but the chances of winning these bets are way smaller. They are divided in the following way:
· A straight-up bet is a bet on a single number. You will win if the ball lands on that exact number. The payout for a straight-up bet is 35 to1.
· A split bet is a bet on two connected numbers either horizontally or vertically. You will win if the ball lands on either one of the numbers and the payout for the bet is 17 to 1.
· A street bet is a bet on 3 numbers on the line of horizontal rows. The payout for this bet is 11 to 1.
· A Trio bet is a bet on three numbers that include the 0, and the payout for this bet is 11 to 1.
· A corner bet is a bet placed on a corner where four numbers meet. The payout for this bet is 8 to 1.
· Line bet is a bet placed on the corner of two streets and it covers 6 numbers. The payout for this bet is 5 to 1.
Outside bets are way easier, not only to remember but to win as well. All of these bets offer almost a 50-50 chance to win and they are as follows:
· Red/Black is a bet that the ball will land in either red or black pocket, no matter the number.
· Odd/Even is a bet that the ball will land on either odd or even number.
· High/Low is a bet that covers 18 low numbers and 18 high numbers.
· A column bet is a bet that you place on one of the '2 to 1' boxes which can be found at the end of the table.· A dozen bet is a bet placed on one of the boxes marked "1st 12", "2nd 12", or "3rd 12" and it covers 12 numbers in that section.
Live poker is played in the same way as traditional poker that was the main idea with the live casino games, to bring the most authentic experience your way. You play at a live poker room with a live dealer and real players and as a result, you have an experience that is both real and exciting. You can see the poker table and the live dealer behind it, conducting the game. The game is played in the same way as traditional poker so you can use all the skills you acquired before and enjoy a good session. Keep in mind that live poker can`t be played in a fun mode, so if you are still not certain about your gameplay then you should practice playing one of the many variants that could be found at PlayGrand Casino. Once you feel confident enough you can play the live version of the game.
The most popular variant is the Ultimate Texas Hold’em, and you can find this version almost at every online casino. Ultimate Texas Hold’em is used for live tournaments and it is very simple so beginners can pick it up, and at the same time, it offers a challenge that more experienced players enjoy. The objective of the game is to have the best five-hand combination and to beat the dealer.
There are no huge differences between standard poker and live poker, so even if this is your first time playing the game you will easily get what is going on. The game is played with a standard deck of cards and they are shuffled between each game. You will have to play on the Ante, and you will have an option to make a bonus bet. The dealer will deal two cards to each player and to themselves too. You can take advantage of the chat feature and talk with the dealer and with the other players on the table as well.
Baccarat is a card game that you can play live at PlayGrand Casino. You can bet whether the players hand or the bankers hand will be closest to 9, or that the hand will end in a tie.
The game is played by following a predefined set of rules, so there is nothing much you can do to influence the outcome of the game. This makes the game more appealing to players because they can unwind and enjoy the gameplay and hope that luck will be on their side.
The only thing you can do is to record past hand outcomes and maybe you will spot trends and you can later on betting on those.
We can't say that there is a foolproof way of predicting the outcome of the next hand, so you should just enjoy the game and hope for the best.
The game is played with 8 decks of 52 playing cards and for the game, the cards have slightly different values. Aces are valued 1, the cards from 2 through 9 have their value and the 10s and face cards are valued 0.
Each player and the dealer receives two cards each, and if need be, an extra card may be dealt with. There are certain rules when a third card is dealt with.
The player is the first one to finish the round. If you have a hand with a total value between 0 and 5, then you must take a third card. If your hand has a total value between 6 and 7 then you must stand. If you receive an 8 or a 9, then the round is over and you are the winner of the round.
The third card rule for the dealer is slightly more complicated, but the good news is that you don’t have to know these rules to have a successful round.
If the player doesn't take a third card then the same rules apply for the dealer. They have to take a third card for a hand with a total value of between 0 and 5, and they have to stand on a hand with a total value of between 6 and 7.
When the player takes a third card, then the banker has to take a third card if their hand is with a total value of between 0 and 2.
When the player`s third card is 2 or 3, then the banker must take a card if he has a hand with a total value between 0 and 4 and stands if they have a hand with a total value of between 5 and 7.
When the player`s third card is 4 or 5, then the banker must take a card if he has a hand with a total value between 0 and 5 and stands if they have a hand with a total value of between 6 and 7.
When the player`s third card is 6 or 7, then the banker must take a card if he has a hand with a total value between 0 and 6 and stands if they have a hand with a total value of 7.
When the player`s third card is an 8, then the banker must take a card if he has a hand with a total value between 0 and 2 and stands if they have a hand with a total value of between 3 and 7.
When the player`s third card is an Ace, 10, or picture car, then the banker must take a card if he has a hand with a total value between 0 and 3 and stands if they have a hand with a total value of between 4 and 7.

We have to admit that Live Games offer a different experience and if you are a fan of going to a land-based casino, then you should try one of the many games that PlayGrand Casino has to offer. You can try one of the following games here:

All the live Blackjack games come from Evolution Gaming, one of the best software providers in the industry. The games have the power to take you to a luxurious studio with a professional dealer allowing you to adjust the game so you can play it at your own pace and enjoy socializing with the dealer and the other players.
Live Blackjack has been taking the world by storm since it was first invented, and now, even more, thanks to the fact you can play the game live with a real-life dealer. The main object of the game is to get a hand as close to 21 than the banker without going bust.
Even though the game is very simple to play several situations can arise at the table. You are probably aware of the rules of the game and how to act with each hand you get, but if you are new to the game, you might need some guidance.
One of the most important decisions you have to make when you play at the casino is to learn when to hit and when to stand. This is a crucial decision because it can lead to winning or losing your bet.
When you ‘Hit’, you are requesting another card, hoping that it will improve the total value of your hand.
When you ‘Stand’, this means you don’t need any additional cards. You either have a good hand, or there is nothing you can do to improve your hand.
If the dealer is showing an Ace, this is probably the worst scenario for you. In this case, we advise you to play aggressively and try to get a hand of 17 or higher. There is a great chance the dealer has a Blackjack, but that doesn't mean it has.
If you have an 11, and the dealer is showing a 10, or a face card you still have a great chance to win. You have a great chance to win 21 if you hit, you should also hit if you have 10 or less. With a hand of a total value of between 12 and 16, you should hit and you should stand if you have 17 or more.
If the dealer is showing a 7, 8, or 9 you have a great chance to win, but remember the dealer can still get a hand with a total value of 17 or more.
There is another option available at Blackjack, and that is doubling down. You can double down if the situation is ideal of course. You should always double down a hand that has a total of 11.
Splitting is another option that can turn things in your favor, again, if you have the right cards for it. You should always split Aces and 8s, but you should avoid splitting 10s and 5s.
