And in general, they really have better winning chances, as gaming authorities for online gambling put a minimum RTP for slots online.

Based on how its customers play, internet casinos can be categorized into three categories. These are the groups:

  • Web-based
  • Download-based
  • Live-based

With this type, users are able to access a limited number of games right from the Internet without having to download any software to their pc.

In order to have these games working perfectly, it will be necessary to have a certain type of plug-in download beforehand. Thankfully, they are pretty easy to install and in most times browsers have them already. This happens because the games have sounds and animations, which wouldn’t run properly without adequate bandwidth.


These require players to download specific software to their computer or mobile in order to play. You can play games without using a web browser thanks to this software's direct connection to the casino service provider.

The advantage of this is that the gameplay runs faster because the software uses the graphics and sound programs of the casino software as opposed to running through a browser on the internet. Obviously, the software takes some time to install on your computer and there is always a risk (just like downloading software) that it contains malware and can potentially infect your computer.


The most recent type let users interact with games being played in a classic casino setting. Live dealers from all over the world are available for players to observe, hear, and engage with.

The very same games that are available in physical casinos are also available at internet casinos. This means that the same classic options will be available, such as roulettes, slots, and other popular table games. In addition, it is also very common to find lotteries and bingo on these platforms.

That is, instead of just one type of roulette, the sites will offer several types, and may even offer European and American roulettes, leaving it up to the gambler on which he will bet on.

With the creation of the live casino, then, the games became even more similar to the physical version. So you don't have to worry, the online experience is just as good - if not better - than brick-and-mortar casinos.
