Computers and the Internet probably is the most fast-growing field of technology, so, in the type of things, the casinos and poker-rooms attempt to ride the ground-swell and use new technologies that became available recently wherever it is possible.
The first online casinos have already been made in simple HTML, but since the advent of Java language as well as with spread of flash technology online casinos started to use these technologies. In the span of time, offline casinos have improved graphics and sound and have added new games. Advent of online casinos had become the first considerate achievement in online gambling together with development of broadband access. In these casinos one plays not against computer dealer but against real dealers playing on the actual equipment and the gamer may have the video record of the course of the game. Roulette had become the first online game as it is easily broadcasted online and a variety of players can parlay using one table since there is no need to make any decisions.
The stakes are positioned on a digital table and after that the actual spin is created; all gamblers receive one final number and payments corresponding with their bets. Incidentally, if there are always a lot of gamblers in one casino it becomes unprofitable and almost impossible for the latter to swindle and that increases the attractiveness of game. Soon baccarat had become online too: the gamer does not make any decisions in the span of game and the cards dealing is created 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 because they opt to take or to not take the card and these decisions may differ therefore the dealer cannot simultaneously execute them. That’s why online blackjack, as well as real, is played by one dealer against only a few players simultaneously. Consequently this game usually has quite high bets.
Nowadays, there are always a lot 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 is an idea to propose players to use their web-cams: each player will film himself during game and transmit the data to a server that will distribute this data among other players. Consequently it’s possible to start to see the opponent’s face during the overall game and which will asia999 add new options, particularly for players’psychology experts. Needless to say, these proposals aren’t realized nowadays nevertheless when they will be realized the Internet-poker will end up quite much like offline poker.
Another latest thing that is found in gambling is 3D graphics. Some years ago Intercasino had announced the advent of new version of software – “the first 3D casino”, although, in fact there were a couple of static 3D portraits of players. After that quite many casinos and some poker-rooms had produced so-called 3D software; usually there were completely static, pre-rendered pictures of men and women and table which had little in accordance with “real 3D “.But, generally speaking, tridimensionality in casino is not so interesting – 3D table or even a dealer will not be described as a revolution, though 3D effectation of poker had become quite revolutionary. PKR had become the first real 3D poker-room: it had been opened just on a year ago and in this short term it had become one of 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 as well as to choose the initial appearance of player, and this is the case: there are always a lot of kinds of faces, hair styles, hair colors, clothes, footwear and accessories, therefore it is almost impossible to meet up two similar players not merely at one table in all room. Appearance and standard clothes are possible to acquire free of charge, though expensive suit or accessories can be purchased for points (which are collected easily and quickly), and the gamer can digitize their own face to ensure that his poker avatar is his perfect copy! The players don’t sit still – they really move dibs, look at cards (your cards aren’t shown constantly, it is essential to press the special button and the gamer 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 is possible to choose the player’s accent. Generally, all players agree, that PKR is most realistic of all computer rooms. Unfortunately, you should have to pay for all that beauty: firstly, the overall game runs slightly slower than in other rooms, secondly, you can play only at one table, thirdly, the overall game is resource-hungry and on slow PC it runs slower. And finally this game is advised only to owners of unlimited Access to the internet (as well as online casinos, however), because it takes a lot of traffic. Only its installation requires significantly more than 600 Mb, and during the overall game the area 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 effectation of presence is going to be reached, though now we can play the actual roulette by means of video broadcast and 3D graphics makes a computer game nearly real. We’ll await new interesting decisions that will make the overall game even more convenient and pleasant.
