Installing and Playing Online Casinos

When it comes to playing at an online casino you have a variety of options to choose from. The most popular by far is the standalone software that the online casinos offer for download. But if for some reason you don’t want to install their software or don’t have a fast internet connection then you can give the non-download method a try. The non-download options come in a variety of flavors but you use all of them via your computer web browser. IE: Firefox, Internet Explorer)

The full download based casino software easily has the best animations, graphics, and sounds as well as a few other options not included in the non-download casinos. The non-download casinos use flash, java, or HTML and won’t look as good or have as many games and the full download versions.

Once you’re on the casinos website look for a download section and click through the process to get your download started. For most casinos the initial installation file is small, once you install the software it will begin downloading the different games while you fill out the registration form and accept the terms of service.

Like most software the registration, install, and download will only have to be done once. The software should create an icon on your desktop should you choose to play again in the future.

Once the software is installed the casino will pop up a login screen. If you already have an account you would type your user name and password here but since you’re new you will click on create a new account. If you don’t want to play for real money then you might want to click on the play money option. When you create a real money account you will need to enter your details. This can include your name, address, birthday, etc. Make sure that you fill out this info correctly, failure to do so can make your cash outs invalid. Once you create an account the casino will probably send you an email to confirm your email address. After this is confirmed you can login to the casino, go to the cashier, make a deposit, and start gambling.

As I said earlier you will have to download the games after you have the casino installed and logged in. Some online casinos offer so many different games that it can take a while to download everything. So when you first get started do be surprised if you try to play a game but it has yet to finish download.

Remember to protect your user name and password, you should treat these like you would an online banking login and password. Should you have any problems with the install process simply contact the online casino, as I’m sure they would love to help.
