There are three different ways of getting gaming software over the Internet. These are Download (a .EXE file similar to most other downloads), CD-ROM and a No Download option. We’ve covered these in more detail below…

 Download Online Casino Software


Some online casinos require you to download and install casino software onto your computer. Some casino files are large and take a long time to download depending on the speed of your connection. However, most casinoi will allow you to play popular games like blackjack, roulette and slots whilst you download the entire casino.

No Download versions of games are perhaps the most popular way in which to play casino and instant win games. The gaming application itself stays on the casino server; all you do is access it, then register and start playing. Quick and easy!

 Playing Casino Games on CD-ROM


CD-ROMs offer a great alternative to downloading large gaming applications, especially if you are using a standard 56k modem. All reputable online casinos offer CD-ROMs free of charge. However, nearly all Soft Gaming sites will use No Download applications, thus there is no need for a CD-ROM.

We recommend you use the No Download Casino version - it’s quick and easy and if you’re sharing a computer, leaves little left for others to see and perhaps abuse your casino account. You can also play on any computer around the world with the same username and password.

Oh and never pay for a casino CD-ROM!
