Flash Casino Games refer to those online casino games that are developed using Macromedia Flash technology from Adobe Systems. Flash technology games are preferred over other conventional and non-conventional tools because of their much more realistic graphics and better sound effects. They are much better at recreating the real casino experience online as in land-based casinos. They bring the feel of real casinos to a player's computer. This is something conventional gaming software has not been successful at. As already mentioned, flash games are available on many websites. The number of flash games surpasses gaming software. The most commonly found flash games include:
- Caribbean Poker
- Pai Gow Poker
- Slot Machines
- Video Poker and
- Video Slots
The major advantages of flash based casino games are described below
- No Download or Installation Required
As you may already know, flash casino games do not require downloading and installation. They can be played online within the web browser when you are online. They load up relatively quickly. This is unlike traditional gaming software which requires downloading of a big software and does not take time. Similarly, you do not have to go through the hassle of installing the software onto your computer.
Apart from this there is the problem of a security risk. This is because it is either an .exe or a .zip file. Both of these can contain viruses or other spy ware. This risk is not posed by Flash games which do not require downloading or installation.
- Widespread Use and Availability of Flash Games:
They are widely available. Flash players are a common application and are used in several programs. Almost all new computers have Flash players pre-installed and about 98% of all computers have flash installed. When a web-browser comes around a flash application, it automatically plays it.
