Casinos by Type

Online casinos run on a higher technical platform than land-based casinos. Unlike their traditional counterparts, the games they offer are developed by software clients which is why they are able to offer massive varieties of games; a lot more than land-based casinos could ever offer.  Online Casino operations run in 3 major platforms

  • No download casino
  • Download based casino
  • Mobile casino

While choosing an online casino, players need to make sure they choose the right platform as each of them follow their own pros and cons.

In this article, Blackjack Australia briefly introduces each platform. We have dedicated entire sections on describing how these platforms work and their advantage and disadvantage.

No download online casino

instant-play-casinosWeb based online casinos allow you to play games without downloading software to your PC. These casinos require you to have plugins like Macromedia Flash, Macromedia Shockwave or Java and require your browsers’ support for these plugins; this shouldn’t be an issue as most web browsers have these plugins inbuilt, although if it’s a very old system, you might require a Java and Flash update. Also your device requires bandwidth since all graphics, sounds, and animations are loaded through the web via the plugin, which again is built-in anyway. All casino functions such as the registration, deposit, playing games etc. can be operated through your preferred web browser.

To register an account with an online casino, you simply open the casino website and click on the register option and fill in all your details along with your preferred username and password.

Download based online casino

When you connect the casino software to the casino service provider, you can gamble without the use of a browser. However, the initial download and installation of the software takes time (depending on the speed of your internet). The download would be the very first step as the registration and deposit can be completed only after you download the casino software in your device.

Mobile Casino

mobile-casinoIt doesn’t take long for something on the internet to pop up on a mobile device, so why should online casinos hold back. Players on mobile devices have two options in regards to playing in online casinos; they might need to download an app or visit the mobile website. This depends on what format the casino has made itself available on.

Generally, online casinos offer relatively less number of games in mobile; however, they make sure that top casino games that are trending are available to players. The functions on mobile devices completely depend on the casino. Some casinos only have games available whereas others might allow registration as well as banking.
