Online casino software is the programming that casinos use to bring their games to life. This software provides the fun experience of online gambling through user-friendly functionality, high speeds, graphics, animation, music, and sound. Online casino software also has a moderate house edge that offers a fair gambling experience to players. 

Casino software also uses anti-virus, -malware, and -spyware features to make sure the computers and mobile devices that players use to access and play online casino games stay safe. They also allow payments through many banking options, including cryptocurrency, online payment platforms, and banks.

The types of online casino software include:

Downloadable Software

This type of casino software involves downloading a casino’s gaming platform onto your PC. All you have to do is open the computer application, log in, and start playing the casino’s full lineup of games.

Instant Play Software

This type of online casino software is browser-based, meaning you can log into an online casino’s platform, play games, and win through your internet browser. While you do not have to download an application to your computer to access the games, you may need to download browser-based features that make your computer compatible with the platform.

Mobile App Software

This type of online casino software involves downloading an online casino’s mobile device application onto your phone or tablet. Then, you can open the app, log in, and play the casino’s lineup of full or modified casino games.

Most online casinos use third-party developers to create, maintain, and improve their casino software. This eliminates the chances of casinos “rigging” online games, or purposefully making them unfair to players so the casinos can earn more money. Because third-party developers make online casino software, you’ll see many of your favorite games at many online casinos.
