Pokies and Casino Games Software Providers
Online gaming is a multi-billion dollar a year industry, with over 160 companies offering a wide variety of gaming software in platforms ranging from internet to satellite and cable systems. Flash and java are the two most common formats for casino gaming software. Flash requires the user to download the gaming program which connects to the casino operator’s site via the internet. The program runs independently from the web browser allowing for more graphics and an enhanced content experience. Java operates through a web browser and requires users to log into the game site and play over a secured server connection.
All online gaming software must meet strict standards and pass rigorous third party testing before it can be offered on the open market. Though many software providers will offer the same games and basic features, payouts and bonus levels as well as languages, support and types of currency accepted will be set by the pokies casino operator.
