In Michigan, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania, live dealer games have become one of the most popular ways to take part in iGaming. With the addition of BetRivers live dealer games, West Virginians can now see what all the hype is about.
BetRivers became the first West Virginia online casino to offer Evolution live table games over the weekend. The menu of available games provides options for players across an array of preferences.
BetRivers live dealer games available in the Mountain State
Evolution is the premier vendor for online casinos looking to offer live dealer games to their customers. It’s only appropriate then that when BetRivers Casino debuts its new additions, those additions feature the best offerings available.
“We are confident that the Evolution-hosted Live Dealer Casino will prove very popular with our players here as the live dealer game is the closest you can get online to playing in a land-based casino,” said Richard Schwartz, CEO of Rush Street Interactive.
“Many players prefer live dealer options because they watch it happen live which gives them a higher level of trust in the outcome. We’re excited to now offer BetRivers players the chance to virtually sit and play on Evolution’s world-renowned live tables.”
According to a Friday, June 10 press release, the live dealer games are available on BetRivers’ Android app and website in West Virginia. The release does not mention when the games might be coming to the iOS app. The current table games menu includes:
Blackjack games with various stakes and side bets
Three Card Poker
Ultimate Texas Hold’em
Because of their newness to the state, some West Virginia iGaming enthusiasts might not be familiar with the games. As Schwartz alluded to, it’s the closest you can get to sitting in a casino while you’re on your couch at home.
How West Virginia live dealer games work
If you’ve ever played any of these games at a physical casino, you already know how this works. Just like if you were actually present at a West Virginia casino, you place your bet, take a seat, then play the game.
The big difference is that your “seat” in this game mode is virtual. There is an actual table, physical cards, and as the name suggests, a live, human dealer. Your “chips” are the funds you have deposited in your BetRivers online account.
While the dealer is the only person physically at the table, you can see everything happen live as if you were also there. The rules of the games are pretty consistent with what you would find at a brick-and-mortar casino.
In short order, West Virginians should find out why this is a popular way to play online casino games. BetRivers has the distinction of making them available first.
