Updated: March 17, 2019 | Written by: Oliver Williams
At times, you will be presented with two options of accessing the online casino interface. These include the downloadable version of the game and the flash play option of the same. Though both of these allow you to access the same interface and enjoy the same games, they both have their pros and cons, as you will see shortly in this section.
This option will require you to actually download the casino and install it on your computer. This means that you will need to access the casino’s website from which you will have the link to download the casino application. This will be packaged with all the animations, libraries, sound and visuals among other things that you will need to play the game. With this, you will simply need to install it using the instruction on the download section of the application and then you can access the game interface using the link on the desktop. Once you open the game’s interface, then you will be prompted to enter your login credentials, after which a short verification step will follow shortly and then you can start enjoying your game.
There are a number of things about this game that you will actually get to enjoy such as: It is somewhat faster as you will have all the libraries and animations needed installed on your computer and hence need less bandwidth and a better game experience; You will not need to rely on the browser as all you need is an internet connection and a simple click on the application to start playing; You will also have a minimal interaction with the server, meaning that your gaming session will be very smooth and secure as well, as there is no exposure to any hacks whatsoever.
Though it has a number of benefits, some of the disadvantages include: The download package is quite big and hence costly in terms of the initial bandwidth needed; Most of the downloadable versions of the games are only available in the windows platform and hence limit the Mac and Linux users; You will need to move with your PC everywhere if you wish to enjoy the game from other locations, as it is not wise to install it on multiple computers with your credentials; These may take a considerable amount of disk space and hence a limiting factor.
