Flash based online casinos have a distinct purpose to serve on the internet yet from numerous informal inquiries this writer concludes that in many cases the flash casino is not properly used to satisfy the need for which they are most currently necessary.
It is true they were first designed so that there would be no need to download anything to your PC.This was necessary because back in the days when flash casinos first arrived upon the virtual gambling scene the download version of many online casinos was just too big of a file to merit keeping more than one casino on the home PC. The coming of the flash games changed the need for so much room to be available. In fact to play the flash games you didn’t need to download anything at all.
A common misconception about flash casinos is that they are faster than the download version. This is simply not true and in fact the download version (once loaded onto your PC which takes less than five minutes on my connection) is as fast as anything this writer has seen on the net. Flash casinos do need to download certain aspects of their games onto your PC although they may not make that perfectly clear because it all goes away when you close down the game. The point I’m making is that it takes time for these aspects to load onto your PC and this is a process which is repeated every time you change games or if you have to re-open the game you’re currently playing because flash games are known to lose connection though this has been less of a problem in current times.
In any case the flash games are going to take considerably longer than the downloaded version in terms of loading (by that and they are also slower in returning game results. and only offer you half the amount of choices. A good general rule of thumb is whatever amount of games are in the download version there will be about sixty-percent of those available in the flash casino.
The actual time difference between going through the process to be able to play in the flash casino and the process to be able to play in the download version is about five minutes on a DSL or broadband connection.
What then is so important about flash casinos if they are not faster and can provide only about half the variety of the download? Convenience my friends. Although the flash casino is not as attractive for reasons already mentioned, it becomes ever so much more when the next choice is not playing at all. It is very hard to carry your PC with you at all times but if all you need to have available is your login and password and a means to access the net, then the prospect of gambling at your favorite online casino while away from your home becomes a very tangible option that many people take full advantage. This is the true manner in which the flash casino is valuable in these times because very few PCs are so stressed for space they can’t easily afford the room to have a downloaded casino or even more than one.
