With computers and technologies getting better each day, casinos and their software is not sleeping either. Software and graphical abilities of today's online casino's were nothing more than a dream in the past. Modern casinos of today provide a feel of reality and a land based casino environment. The game choice and excitement provided in an online casino easily beats one in a land-based casino. You can play video slots, classical aka. old-school slot machines, a wide variety of table and lottery games. Hell, you can even watch and bet on a virtual horse race from a seat in front of your pc screen!
Nowadays, there are two main casino software types. While both are pretty equal in terms of gaming experience provided. Each customer and player favors different software.
Flash, Bovada In-browser software
Flash software has became a widely popular one at Bovada, since its launch back in the days. The main advantage of using this type of software is a no-download requirement, which means that you can instantly play your desired game. You'll only have to wait a few seconds until the game loads.
Flash software also allows you to play casino games on any pc, that features an internet connection. If you are in a public internet-cafe and want to get into some action, you'll often find some restrictions for downloads. However, flash version will allow you to play your favourite casino slot game anywhere!
Use of a flash software is also widely popular among users of Mac OS, Linux and other different operating systems than Windows. Seeing most casino clients are favouring Windows, flash versions are very popular among alternative operating system users!
Downloadable Casino Client
Downloadable casino client is considered to be the standard one. While downloading a casino client takes a while, theres also an advantage of improved gameplay and graphics. Also, flash based casino version tends to have a lag more often than downloadable one.
Another advantage for a downloadable casino version is instant game loading. In flash version you'll have to wait quite a bit of time, before the game loads. This will happen instantly in the downloadable client.
While this probably isn't the case in these times, downloadable client also requires less system resources. Flash based casino version will use RAM and video card memory quite heavily. However, with the power of today's computing this is probably a little outdated.
There's also the third client version, which is pretty much the same as flash version, from users perspective. It's called Java casino client. It also require no download, but works a little differently than flash version.
To sum it up, it does not really matter which one of the two version you choose. Technologies are so advanced, that both will provide you with a great gaming experience and casino environment. You always have a third option, after all, you can drive to the nearest land based casino.
