The Evolution of Online Casinos and Online Gambling Industry

In 1994, Microgaming, an unfamous South African company, developed and released the first online casino software and the first-ever online casino. This is how the whole online gambling industry started. Since then, this industry has been developing and growing, forming one of the biggest and most important industries in our modern world.

The Association of Book Publishers realized how that industry was increasingly popular and decided to partner with Jet Casino - - to produce and release a book about the evolution of online casinos.

The Evolution of Online Casinos on Shelves

If players from all around the world can enjoy the utmost experience in online gambling with safe and guaranteed technology, it is only because the industry evolved this far. That whole trajectory will be described in the aforementioned partnership. While Jet Casino counts with the view from inside that industry, the Association of Book Publishers contributes with in-depth research and the writing.

Not only Canadian, but also Australian online casino Jet supported the idea of releasing a book on the evolution of online casinos. Since this online casino is one of Australia's earliest major online gambling sites, it can provide a great deal of material for readers of this book around the world. Stories from the beginnings of the online casino industry to the scope of online gambling today is what Jet Casino in Australia has to offer!

The Beginning of the Online Casino Industry

Other companies had been trying to prove that they are the actual founders of the online gambling industry. However, without the Free Trade and Processing Act, none of these companies would have accomplished anything at all. The Free Trade and Processing Act is responsible for giving licenses to online gambling websites.

In 1994, the bill was passed in Antigua and Barbuda. In the same year, The Gaming Club, the world's first online gambling website, was released. In 1996, the first online casino ever was launched by InterCasino.

Since 1998, the online gambling industry has been full of players. Software developers have been releasing new content and players have been accessing all the new titles since then. Also, gamblers had access to free games from slots to poker and other games.

In a nutshell, we can say that the online gambling industry started because gaming and software developers took actual, decisive steps.

The Online Casino Software

It can be said that modern online casinos are the beneficiaries of the old versions of online casinos that appeared at the end of the 20th century. The evolution of modern online casinos has been amazing in the last few years. The most reputable casinos in the industry such as Jet Casino have been providing incredible gaming experiences. Of course, casino software now is far more advanced than it was, which is the reason why there are always new improvements made within a short period of time. Casinos focus on sound effects, graphics, and animation and the quality of the software plays a crucial role in developing all of them.

The Association of Book Publishers realized how that industry was increasingly popular and decided to partner with Jet Casino to produce and release a book about the evolution of online casinos. The choice for Jet Casino was due to its know-how in the industry and acceptance by the large public of online players.

Online Casino Software Basics

The journey of the great developments of online casino software was nothing but amazing. In the past, there were many claims that casino operators changed the results in their favor. However, modern software systems have solved this problem. Now, modern online casinos use RNGs or Random Number Generators. It is a technology that does not provide anyone with an advantage when choosing winners. It is totally automated and random.

Random numbers are processed without any patterns. For example, the software gives orders to produce results such as the card to be dealt next or which symbols will appear on the slot machine when the spin is over.

Also, all reputable online casinos do not produce their software by themselves. They depend on third-party developers to provide the software, which makes any attempts to manipulate the results impossible.

Types of Online Casino Software

The casino software can be categorized into three categories which are downloadable software, mobile apps, and instant play formats. Almost all casino games can be found in all forms, which allows players to enjoy games from multiple devices. Ideally, all formats are the same and all the games are designed to work well on all kinds of devices. However, a few minor distinctions exist.

  1. Downloadable Software
    This software is compatible with all PCs powered by Microsoft Windows in almost all online casinos. There is a wide array of gaming options and players can download any of them and start playing immediately.
  1. Mobile Apps
    Nowadays, almost all gamers including gamblers prefer playing via their mobile devices. That is why most online casino software developers make their games mobile-friendly to allow players to enjoy them whenever and wherever they want. Also, players can download mobile gaming apps on both Android and iOS devices. They are the same as playing via the mobile browser.
    For instance, you can download Jet Casino’s mobile app and enjoy all the games on the website. You can either play for free or for real money. All the bonuses, promotions, and rewards are also available via the mobile app.
  1. Instant Play Software
    Players who do not want to download apps can still enjoy their favorite games by playing via their mobile browsers. This software usually uses Adobe Flash, which means that it is compatible with nearly all kinds of devices and operating systems.

Online gambling is one of the biggest industries in the world and it is expected to get better and become more popular over time. The Association of Book Publishers in conjunction with Jet Casino plans to release a book on the evolution of online casinos. It will be useful for those who are interested in this thriving, billion-dollar industry.
