Downloading Online Casinos
Downloading online casino software today is quite a straightforward task. Just remember to check that the software you intend to install does in fact come from a verified publisher. When you visit an online casino for the first time and open an account with them, you will be given the chance to access the games instantly over a flash casino platform, or you will be given the choice to ‘Download Now’. When you have the choice between the two, we recommend downloading right from the very beginning.
Installing the casino software will give you access to more than twice as many games, compared to the instant flash version. The overall quality tends to be far better at download casinos and in addition to more gaming content, you can generally sign up to online blackjack tournaments or online slot tournaments from within the download client. Most flash casinos don’t host these exciting events.
All that you have to do is follow the simple onscreen instructions and the installation process should take no more than five minutes. You could even be installing the casino software while you are registering an account and hopefully by the time you have finished with the application process, the download should have finished. It would also be a good idea to create a shortcut to the casino on your desktop.
When you have finished downloading the casino software, the casino should then launch automatically. At most Microgaming casinos, you will be given the option to launch the casino in the free play demo mode or in the real cash mode. Even if you launch the casino in the practice mode, you can easily switch the real cash mode by using a button that appears in the bottom left hand corner of the lobby. This button simply reads, ‘switch to real money’. It would be a good idea to practice in the free play mode just to become familiar with the games etc. The layout and the design of the lobby (and the games) is exactly the same in both modes.
When you attempt to launch a game for the very first time, it will take a couple of minutes to download and you will only ever have to do this once, for every game. This is standard at almost every downloadable online casino. If you ever uninstall the casino and then reinstall it, you will have to go through the same process again.
