Online casinos can be divided into two groups and these two options offered are, some are web-based and some are download-only, some casinos offer both options.
Download; The first are the Download Casinos which include
the majority of the current top online casinos. Download casinos require you
to download and install a free software program before you can play.
It does not usually take longer than a few to a max of 10 minutes to complete
depending on your download speed and it
is really worthwhile doing as they tend to have
the best flow, pictures, sounds, and gaming features.
Flash, Instant Play or No Download; The second type are No Download or Web-based Casinos (flash or instant play). They offer you instant play from any web browser as they use a different kind of technology.
We would like to suggest that if your internet connection and connectivity speeds are not great that you stick to the download versions otherwise you might find the interrupted play a little frustrating when your online connection occasionally cuts out.
Some Casinos offer both of the above options.

Live Dealer; 'Live gaming', is available either exclusively, or as part of a wider offering. In live internet gaming, popular casino games such as roulette and blackjack are dealt by real dealers in special internet casino studios, this conveys more of the actual atmosphere of a physical casino. Player actions (including chat) such as 'hit' in the game of blackjack may be transmitted to the dealer; in some online casinos more than one player may 'sit' at a particular 'seat' on the table, and in this case there is no interactivity between player and dealer, the question of which player(s) requested the extra card that the dealer dealt and which chose to 'stand' will be handled by the software. It is usual for players to be able to observe a video feed of the action, and equally common for players to opt to turn it off, if they lack the bandwidth - as the cards are read by OCR and other technology, the video feed is only ever a visual cue.
Mobile Casinos; They have revolutionized the way the average gambler
enjoys his or her entertainment and have taken todays gaming online to the next level ...
