Download Casinos

Most of today’s online casinos, apart from a few exceptions, give players the choice to access either a downloadable casino platform or an instant flash casino platform. When a casino gives you this choice, it is fair to say that nine times out of ten, the download version will be much better. The download casino will contain a much larger collection of games and the overall quality will be visibly better.

Also, if the casino hosts regular online slot tournaments or online blackjack tournaments, you probably won’t be able to sign up to them via their instant flash casino platform. Most of today’s online slot or blackjack tourneys can only be accessed by real cash players who are playing via the downloadable software.

Some leading online casino software providers, such as WMS Gaming or Net Entertainment (NetEnt) are better known for having developed instant, non-downloadable platforms, but other companies such as Microgaming, Playtech and Cryptologic have developed both. The quality is noticeably different when you compare all three companies downloadable and non-downloadable products.

If you are given the choice upon registering an account with an online casino to download or play instantly, we recommend downloading and installing as soon as you get the chance. Not only will you have access to more games and tournaments, but you will also receive promotional offers that may not be available via the instant platform.

You should also find that most downloadable casino software available online today comes with full built in support, which can be contacted 24/7. The download client allows you to change the display language, which is ideal if your first language isn’t English, plus once you have installed the software, you can create a shortcut from your desktop and launch the casino directly from there, rather than having to visit the main website each time you want to have a flutter in the casino.

When you install the software for the first time, you should always follow the onscreen instruction and check that the software does in fact come from a verified publisher. Most downloadable online casino software will take you just a few minutes to install onto your computer.
