2017-03-03 09:54:31

Online casinos are extremely popular these days as players switch from going to actual casinos to playing them on their mobile devices or desktop computer. They are also known as virtual casinos and in most cases they are an online version of traditional brick and mortar casinos.

These casinos enable players to place bets through using the internet and this is commonly known as online gambling. It is this ease of access that has made them so popular among players nowadays.

An attractive feature of online casinos is that they usually offer odds and RTPs (Return to Player) at a more attractive rate than traditional casinos. Most online casinos contain a variety of slot machines and in most cases, they will display the actual RTP of the game and this can usually be found in the rules of a slot machine. This is a big advantage compared to land-based casinos as you have to really look for the RTP in games or in some cases, ask the casino staff about it.

The majority of online casinos have deals with software developers in order to display their slots on their sites. Microgaming, Playtech, Play N’ Go, NetEnt, and Quickspin are some of the biggest software producers in the online gaming industry right now. However, there are some online casinos that have their own games developed in-house and this is a neat way of drawing players in with original games you won’t find anywhere else.
