Computers and the Internet probably is probably the most fast-growing field of technology, so, in the nature of things, the casinos and poker-rooms attempt to ride the ground-swell and use new technologies that became available recently wherever it’s possible.
The very first online casinos have now been manufactured in simple HTML, but since the advent of Java language in addition to with spread of flash technology online casinos started to make use of these technologies. In the length of time, offline casinos have improved graphics and sound and have added new games. Advent of online casinos had become the very first considerate achievement in online gambling as well as development of broadband access. In these casinos one plays not against computer dealer but against real dealers playing on the actual equipment and the player may have the video record of the course of this game. Roulette had become the very first online game because it is easily broadcasted online and a variety of players can parlay using one table because there is no need to make any decisions.
The stakes are put on an electronic table and next the actual spin is made; all gamblers receive one final number and payments corresponding with their bets. Incidentally, if there are a large amount of gamblers in one single casino it becomes unprofitable and extremely difficult for the latter to swindle and that increases the attractiveness of game. Soon baccarat had become online too: the player doesn’t make any decisions in the length of game and the cards dealing is made on a typical pattern. But in case there is another popular game – blackjack had appeared some difficulties. Many players cannot simultaneously play at one table since they opt to take or never to take the card and these decisions may differ and so the dealer cannot simultaneously execute them. This is exactly why online blackjack, in addition to real, is played by one dealer against just a few players simultaneously. As a result this game usually has quite high bets.
Nowadays, there are a large amount of online casinos offering three abovementioned games (for example, such games are often offered in casinos with Playtech software), but at present there is no video poker, although there is talk on its promotion. There’s a concept to propose players to make use of their web-cams: each player will film himself during game and transmit the info to a server that may distribute this data among other players. As a result one can see the opponent’s face during the game and that’ll add new options, especially for players’psychology experts. Needless to say, these proposals are not realized nowadays but when they will be realized the Internet-poker can be quite similar to offline poker.
Another latest thing that is utilized in gambling is 3D graphics. Some asia999 years back Intercasino had announced the advent of new version of software – “the very first 3D casino”, although, in fact there were several static 3D portraits of players. Since that time quite many casinos and some poker-rooms had produced so-called 3D software; usually there were completely static, pre-rendered pictures of individuals and table which had little in keeping with “real 3D “.But, generally speaking, tridimensionality in casino is not so interesting – 3D table or possibly a dealer won’t be a revolution, though 3D aftereffect of poker had become quite revolutionary. PKR had become the very first real 3D poker-room: it have been opened just on a year ago and in this short term it had become among the leaders on visiting statistics (more than 5000 players at a time, although some of them play for love), even despite of absence of Americans and option of 1 table game.
PKR offers the choice to go through the table from different views in addition to to choose the unique appearance of player, and this is the case: there are a large amount of kinds of faces, hair styles, hair colors, clothes, footwear and accessories, therefore it is extremely difficult to meet two similar players not only at one table but in all room. Appearance and standard clothes are possible to obtain free of charge, though expensive suit or accessories can be purchased for points (which are collected easily and quickly), and the player can digitize his own face to ensure that his poker avatar is his perfect copy! The players do not sit still – they really move dibs, look at cards (your cards are not shown all the time, it’s necessary to press the special button and the player will look at them), express emotions (some standard emotions – from pleasure as much as teasing), to play tricks with dibs (a few tricks are free of charge and other can be purchased for points), pronounce their actions and it’s possible to find the player’s accent. Generally, all players agree, that PKR is most realistic of computer rooms. Unfortunately, you will have to fund all that beauty: firstly, the game runs slightly slower than in other rooms, secondly, you can play only at one table, thirdly, the game is resource-hungry and on slow PC it runs slower. And finally this game is preferred and then owners of unlimited Access to the internet (as well as online casinos, however), because it requires a lot of traffic. Only its installation requires a lot more than 600 Mb, and during the game the space eats away nearly 10 Mb per hour.
Nobody knows the near future consequence of gambling and technology mix; maybe in some tens of years the aftereffect of presence will soon be reached, though now we can play the actual roulette by way of video broadcast and 3D graphics makes a pc game nearly real. We’ll wait for new interesting decisions that may make the game even far more convenient and pleasant.
