Welcome to Casinopages – a comprehensive site for information on casino gambling
Humans have been gambling for thousands of years, and today we can even do it online. There is a vast number of different online casinos to chose among, and there are also a lot of gambling sites that offers a wide spectrum of various gambling forms, e.g. casino games, sports betting, bingo, arcade games, poker, etc.
There are two major forms of online casinos: downloadable online casinos and casinos where the games open directly in your browser.
A download casino require the download and installation of a casino client on your computer. This means that graphics, music, sound effects, personal settings, etc will be saved on your computer. When you play in the casino, only a small amount of information needs to be sent back and forth between your computer and the game server. Playing in a download casino will therefore take up much less bandwidth than playing in a browser casino where everything needs to be sent from the game server to your computer and vice versa. There’s a great list of online norwegian casinos at www.casinoer.com.
One of the advantages of playing in a browser casino is that no download and installation is required, so you can start gambling right away. Also, you can gamble from computers that you are not allowed to install any programs on, such as computers in an internet café.
It is still quite common for download casinos to work only with Windows, so if you’re on a computer using Mac OS a browser casino might be your only option for certain games. It should however be noted that there are plenty of online casinos and game developers that do offer download casinos for both Windows and Mac OS.
It is common for a browser casino to require certain plug-ins to work, e.g. Macromedia Flash, Java and Macromedia Shockwave. If you are surfing the web with a reasonably updated browser, you probably have these plug-ins installed already since they are required by a multitude of sites online, not just gaming sites. If you don’t, simply go to the plug-in manufacturer’s official site and download for free. If you encounter any technical problems while gambling, check to make sure that you have the latest versions of the required plug-ins installed.
Live casinos on the internet
Do you miss visiting an old fashioned casino with real gambling tables, chatty dealers and a roulette ball that you can actually hear drop? If so, we suggest you take a look at the modern live casinos that are available online. You get all the positive experiences of a traditional brick-and-mortar casino without having to leave the comfort of your own home. There is no dress code, no annoying slot machine sounds and no one will spill their drink on your cards. What you get is real flesh and blood dealers working at real casino tables in front of web cameras, and you can communicate with them in the chat window. In some live casinos online, you can also chat with other players at your table – if you want to.
Most live casinos online will offer roulette, blackjack and baccarat, but some are even more well-stocked and feature games such as sic bo, keno, casino hold’em and mahjong paigow in addition to the staples. An updated list of live casinos can be found on sverigecasino.com. There is even a “live” slot machine called Mermaid’s Fortune available from Evolution Gaming. As you play this slot, you will be accompanied by a live slot host dressed as a mermaid. She will welcome you to the game, cheer you on and start bonus rounds for you.
