The fastest-growing technology field is computers and the Internet. Therefore, casinos and poker rooms try to take advantage of the current trends and make use of new technologies wherever they are available.
Online casinos were first created in HTML. However, with the introduction of the Java language and the spread of flash technology, online casinos began to use these technologies. Over time, offline casinos added new games and improved sound quality. The advent of online casinos revolutionized online gambling. These casinos allow players to play against real dealers on real equipment. The player can also receive a video recording of the game. Roulette is the original online game. It can be broadcast online, and players can play on anyone table. There is no need for any player to make decisions.
After the virtual spin, all players receive one final number and payments that correspond to their stakes. It is important to note that it can become unprofitable if there are many gamblers at one casino. This makes it almost impossible for them to swindle. Baccarat was soon online: The player doesn’t make any decisions during the game, and cards are dealt with according to a set pattern. Blackjack, a popular game, presented some problems. Because players decide whether or not they want to take the card, multiple players cannot play simultaneously at the same table. The dealer can’t execute these decisions simultaneously because the decisions of the different players may differ. Online blackjack is not like real blackjack. It’s played against a single dealer and only a handful of players at a time. This game is known for having high stakes.
There are many online casinos that offer the three mentioned games. Playtech software is often used in such casinos. However, video poker is not currently available. However, there is some talk about it. One idea is to allow players to use their webcams during games. Each player will record himself and send the data to a server that will distribute it among other players. This will allow one to see the face of the opponent during the game, which will give players new options, particularly for psychologists. These ideas aren’t yet realized, but they will soon be a part of online poker.
Gaming also uses 3D graphics. Intercasino announced years ago the release of a new version of its software. Although there were some static 3D portraits of casino players, it was not the first 3D casino. Many casinos and poker rooms have produced “3D” software. Usually, these were pre-rendered static images of players and tables that had very little to do with real 3D. However, although tridimensionality in casinos isn’t very exciting, 3D tables and even 3D poker dealers are not a revolutionary idea. PKR was the first 3D poker room. It opened its doors just one year ago. The room has seen a significant increase in visitors (more than 5000 people visit at a given time, some play for love), despite the fact that there is only one table and no Americans.
PKR allows you to view the table from multiple perspectives and choose a player’s unique appearance. There are many types of faces, hairstyles and hair colors. It is nearly impossible to meet similar players at more than one table. Standard clothes and appearance are free, but expensive suits and accessories can be purchased for points. The player can also digitize his face to create a perfect poker avatar. Players don’t sit still. They move dibs, look up at cards (but not all of them), and express emotions. It is possible to digitize the player’s face so that his poker avatar is perfect. All players agree that PKR is the most realistic computer room. Unfortunately, this beauty comes at a cost. First, it is slower than other rooms. Second, you can only play at one table. Third, it is resource-hungry and runs slower on a slow PC. This game is not recommended for anyone without unlimited Internet access, but it does require a lot of traffic. Its installation takes over 600 Mb and the game consumes nearly 10 Mb each hour.
We don’t know what the future holds for gambling and technology. However, we can now play real roulette via video broadcast and 3D graphics, making it almost real. We will wait for interesting decisions that will make the game more enjoyable and convenient.
