When the first online casino was launched about 20 years ago, the choice of games was somewhat limited. Table game players could only choose to play electronic versions of Roulette and Blackjack with an installed RNG generator. This took away the thrill of playing face to face with a live dealer, and many players were suspicions of the fairness of these electronic table game clones.
The video slots section wasn’t much better either. Players could choose from playing vintage one reel classic slots, which could be found in every casino in the world or try their luck on the more advanced video slot games with somewhat better graphics and interesting bonus rounds. Still, if you compare the video slot games from 20 years ago to the ones that are popular today, you will notice a huge difference in every way. The progress in the online gambling industry is due to the technology innovations in the modern world today.
The table games that online casinos offer today are the closest that a player will get to the real live casino experience while playing online. This is made possible by Evolution Gaming and their innovations in Live Dealer games. Ever since the world entered the digital age, we can play our favourite table games online with a live dealer just like in a real casino. The table and the dealer are streamed in HD to the player's computer with several cameras covering every angle of the table. The fast broadband connection, along with the possibility to interact in real time with the dealer, takes the online gambling experience to the next level.
The video slot games in online casinos have also moved forward by light years. With the appearance of Java and Flash, the designers managed to create state of the art visual effects along with some stunning animations. One of the leaders in this field was Betsoft Gaming, but with their new video slots collection, Net Entertainment takes the lead. One of their first new video slot games Gonzo’s Quest is still one of the most visually appealing slot game on the market today. Betsoft Gaming is still fighting hard to take their leader position in 3D animation with their latest masterpiece Birds.
