Online casino software
The quality of the software is often what acts as a differentiator between a good casino and a great casino. A great casino tries to recreate a live gaming experience and players get to enjoy the feel of a real casino environment right from the comforts of their home. Casino software companies also attempt to stay ahead of each other by innovating fresh ideas in the gaming space and reinventing their games inventory periodically. Broadly speaking there are two kinds of online casino software-download only and flash based. Here are some of the most popular online casino software available currently.
Founded in 1999, Playtech today powers some of the most popular online casinos like William Hill, Centre bet and Betfred. Playtech develops customized software, like the SEGA Poker software it developed for Sega’s online casino and generic software. It offers iPoker, a network of online poker rooms, which run on the same software and backend support but each have a distinctive look and experience. All software offered by Playtech is certified by BMM International for its adherence to fair gaming practices. Playtech software includes scope for a high level of customization-so each website looks different from the next and is credited with developing more and more interesting variants of slot and table games. The games can be played in both a flash version and a full download version.
Real Time Gaming (RTG)
RTG is best known for their highly innovative and captivating ‘Real Series’ range of slot machines. RTG software also counts its inventory of games in both slot and table variants as its biggest draw. Players also hanker after the video poker games offered by RTG. RTG software usually features a combination of great animation, lifelike sounds and superior level graphics. Games are usually available only in a download version. RTG also lets operators customize the software on a highly granular basis. Examples of online casino running under RTG software are Alladin’s Gold and Silver Oak Casino.
Microgaming offers software to websites like Royal Vegas, Platinum Play and All Slots. Established in 1994, it is also one of the oldest names in the industry. Microgaming is famed for providing an almost lifelike gaming experience to their players-its graphics and sounds are top class and the best. Another advantage is that games can be played in both flash and download mode. Microgaming is arguably the most popular software provider in the industry currently. Microgaming’s Viper software is preferred by players for the sheer variety in slot offerings. Fresh games are added on a monthly basis. Viper also allows easy navigation and sets up user friendly websites.
Vegas Technology is a Canadian software solution provider that offers a wide variety of casino games including 3 reel slots, progressive slots, video slots and table games to the discerning poker player. Vegas Technology features several casino games which have significantly lower buy-ins than their counterparts allowing entry to a greater number of players and bigger progressive jackpots. They also feature plenty of freeroll and guaranteed prize pool tournaments, ensuring a great payout percentage for players. Both flash and download versions are available for game play.
