Types of online casinos
Online casinos are generally of two types: web-based or download-based. In web-based online casinos, there is a website where all the games are offered on browser plug-ins such as Macromedia Flash Player, Shockwave or Java. This type of casino does not require any downloads but necessitates a large amount of bandwidth as all the data, sounds and animations are brought directly from the website. In the downloadable version, software is downloaded to the local computer. This software is used to establish contact with the casino service provider without browser support.
