Today gambling is an extremely popular way of entertainment but its popularity definitely cannot be compared with Internet's. Well, by means of addition these two notions became all-in-one-piece in a form of online casino. The last is a very interesting prototype of land-based casino that just like its ancestor features lots of games and their variations. By the way, to win online casino is not harder than hit a jackpot in a land establishment.
Internet casino types
Depending on the interface there are 2 types of casino online commonly defined: download casinos and the web-based. Most of online casinos include both variants of the interface. Moreover, there is also a "Live gaming" feature at casinos. This means that famous casino games as online blackjack or roulette are represented by live dealers in order to create a real gambling atmosphere for clients.
However, most player's actions and manipulations are handled by software like 'hit', for instance, or 'split' at blackjack.
They are simple websites where visitors can play various casino games using 'instant play' function, i.e. they don't have to install the casino software on the pc. Browser plugins like Java, Macromedia Shockwave or Flash commonly represent all games at web casinos and help to load animation, graphics and sounds.
This online casino type as opposed to the previous one requires the process of casino software downloading before playing a casino. Download casinos commonly run faster in comparison to web casinos. The reason is simple - the users don't have to load the sounds and graphics from the Internet as they already have them on the computer. Thus, the sound and visual effects of such casino generally have much better quality and run faster. On the other hand, the initial download and installation of a download-based online casino client does take time. The online casino operators try to make the process of download secured but it still can be harmful for user's computer software.
Games and specials
Talking of specials we mean different bonuses and complimentary points at casinos. Comparing to the land-based casino online casino bonuses can be listed in a much longer list since the competition in a World Wide Web is definitely stronger. Thus, every casino site tries to attract more users by means of prizes and gifts. As for comp points it is a common phenomenon for land casinos as well.
Taking into consideration the range and variety of games at online and land casinos they are not differ. Here is the most common games featured both types of casino:
- Slot machines
Of cause, the games' variations (if exist) are included.
Sometimes gamblers argue on the subject of the better solution - online or real casino. However, concerning different sides of this issue it can be said that both online and land establishments have the particular features that single them out and make them special for players.
