Each and every online casino out there is only as good as its casino software. No matter how amazing their bonus program, how generous their VIP scheme, or how easy and safe their transactions are, an online casino with few games, dull graphics, and choppy gameplay is not going to attract very many players. It’s almost impossible to have a good time, and make any money, if the software and the games simply don’t work very well.
Very few online casinos develop their own in-house software, choosing instead to have their casinos powered by one of around half a dozen top casino gaming software developers. The biggest names in the industry are Microgaming, Cryptologic, Realtime Gaming, and Playtech. Each of these developers creates their own games, from innovative proprietary slot games to table games such as blackjack and roulette, which are then offered at each casino which buys their products.
What this means is that many different casinos share the same stable of games, so that players have more choice due to the proliferation of casino software. If a player’s favourite game is made by Microgaming, for example, then that player now has the choice to choose which of the dozens of Microgaming powered sites to play at. And that player knows that they will always get the same, top-notch experience with that game, no matter the relative size of that online casino.
