Download Versus Flash Games
A couple of years ago online casinos had to entice players with the most suitable content to download theirs software before they could wager. The downloadable version offered superior graphics, a greater user interface and a larger selection of casino games. While browser based Flash games was placed in the back burner and to a certain extent seen as the lesser cousin to the great download. It’s always been convenient and formed an integral part of the mix for internet casinos.
Oh how have times changed! Browser based content in 2011 is now in decline. Those days are gone when slow internet connections prohibited games developers from designing premier quality graphics via a browser.
During the last five years the internet gambling landscape has changed considerably and internet casinos nowadays won’t sign an exclusive deal with a single content provider anymore. To say the least, the download client, with its restricted range of casino games produced by a single games developer and a devoid of content elasticity, is not that important anymore. However, it’s still forms an integral part of internet casinos’ gaming repertoire. In our opinion ‘the download’ now comes second on the casino grid and well behind browser based content.
Game developers must compete against each other in an open market place and tussle to gain their share on internet casinos’ websites by producing state-of-the-art content perpetually. This demand to produce surplus gaming content and to create a commercial cash cow is a trend which significantly benefits casinos and more importantly its players.
Casino gamers presently enjoy high quality content than they have ever had in the past. New casino games like: IGT’s Star Trek and Ash Gaming’s Captain Cannon’s Circus of Cash are being released in Flash and software giants such as Playtech and Microgaming, at one time pushed all content via their download offerings, are now bringing browser based content and download content to market at the same time.
The punch line here is to give players as much options to choose from as possible. Be it the selection of games or a choice of the method in which games are presented. Internet casinos are forever striving to find the most convenient way to entice players not only to join their casinos but to play their games as well. Be it Flash or in the downloadable version, via a mobile device or Television.[addtoany]
