Online casino (otherwise virtual casino, Internet casino) is an online variant of traditional (also known as "brick and mortar") gambling houses. It provides players with ability to enjoy playing and betting on casino games in the I-Net.
The rates of odds and paybacks in the online casino are just the same as in the land casinos. Some of the sites offer higher paybacks for Slots. Also you may find the wanted info concerning payout rates on the special pages of the sites.
Online casino uses random number generator which is programmed especially for such kind of sites. Also it must be mentioned that the online casino has fixed house edge (e.g. in blackjack card game) and the payouts rates are established according to the games rules.
Question of trust
Trust and reliability are the key questions for casino players to answer. Some casinos decide an issue by purchasing the software for sites from popular and licensed companies-providers e.g. Realtime Gaming, Microgaming, CryptoLogic Inc and Playtech. Thereby online casino raises its credibility in the eyes of gamblers.
Such companies use already mentioned random number generator system in order to ensure the players that the cards, numbers or dice appear by chance.
Types of online casinos
We can divide all the online casinos into two basic types for sure:
- Web-based casinos
- Download-only casinos
Some of the casinos provide players with both types.
Other online versions offer so-called 'Live gaming' option. So if you decided to play roulette or blackjack games with more atmosphere of reality then you may choose this option. A real dealer based in casino studio and you decisions (e.g. to hit) are immediately transmitted to him. But usually it's only an entertaining visual cue (with option to turn it off) without any interactivity in it.
Such online casino as the declared one in the subtitle is based on special web-sites on the Internet. Any person may visit it and play the casino games on it. Also no additional software or installations needed. Such sites use browser plugins, e.g. Java, Macromedia Flash or Macromedia Shockwave.
This kind of online casino needs to download a special software client. It allows you to play and to bet. With the help of this installed software you create a connection with the casino provider and get in contact without browser backing. Download-based casinos are faster than the online casinos based on web-sites. This effect is reached 'cause of the fact that all the graphics and sounds are already downloaded with software, not spool from the Net.
The graphic design of download-based casinos is still better than the 'appearance' of web-based variant.
