The world of online casinos can be confusing and you may have questions about it. This is one of our specially written FAQs to answer those questions.
How do 'no download' or 'instant play' casino games work?
Most online casinos tend to focus on their downloadable games because they can make these more entertaining with prettier graphics, better animations and more entertaining sounds and music.
Online casinos are coming round to recommending their instant play online casino games. With broadband and faster Internet connections becoming the norm the online casino companies are able to offer players 'no-download' or 'instant play' versions of their casino games which work from within their web browsers. It is much easier to get started playing using the instant play casino games as no downloads or installation is needed.
These no download casinos are usually a bit more simple than the downloadable versions offered by online casinos. The graphics and animation may not be as smart as the downloadable casino games but the line between the two types is getting narrower every day.
To use these no-download games you simply go to an online casino offering these instant play casino games and click the 'instant play casino' button. Modern web browsers will have everything needed (usually just the Macromedia Flash plugin) pre-installed by default. The games will load in your browser and it is then just a case of following the easy instructions to get started. Pretty easy really!
