During quite a long time, online casinos had been available as downloadable software only. Browser-based, or flash, online casinos used to be either unavailable, or too slow, inconvenient, and had low-quality sound and graphics. The reason behind that situation was not some peculiar online casino policy, but slow Internet connection and small computer capacity.
Over the last couple of years, technology has made a great leap forward. Nowadays, Internet speed allows to watch HD movies, while browsers display even ‘heavy’ content.
Online casinos no longer require their clients to install casino software to their computers. All slot machines and other online casino games are now available right in your browser, and their quality is not any worse than those of downloadable games. They have with equally amazing sound features and state-of-the-art graphics.
The best thing about gambling right in your favorite browser is that you can start any casino game immediately. Slots and other casino games run on flash software platform. Furthermore, a huge advantage is that you don’t have to go through the process of downloading the software.
A player can open any number of windows with slot games. The only limitation is your computer’s random access memory. Anyway, you can always have 10-20 windows opened at the same time. Although a player hardly needs so many windows, playing two or three slots simultaneously may be fun.
Another important thing about browser-based online gambling is mobile devices. A state-of-the-art mobile phone enables its owner to play at almost any online casino, with no need to download or install any software. Just a couple of years ago, that seemed impossible.
As strange as it may seem, the only drawback of playing in your browser is increased requirements to your computer’s capacity. If you try to start an online casino game on an older computer, you’ll almost definitely fail. However, this kind of problem is quite uncommon among casino clients.
