Computers and the Internet probably is the absolute most fast-growing field of technology, so, in the character 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 been manufactured in simple HTML, but because the advent of Java language as well as with spread of flash technology online casinos started to make use of these technologies. In the course 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 along 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 player may receive the video record of the course with this game. Roulette had become the first online game since it is easily broadcasted online and numerous players can parlay on a single table since there is no need to make any decisions.
The stakes are placed on a digital table and next the actual spin is manufactured; all gamblers receive one final number and payments corresponding to their bets. Incidentally, if there are a lot of gamblers in a 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 course of game and the cards dealing is manufactured on a regular pattern. But in case there is another popular game – blackjack had appeared some difficulties. Many players cannot simultaneously play at one table because they decide to take or to not take the card and these decisions may vary so the dealer cannot simultaneously execute them. This is exactly why online blackjack, as well as real, is played by one dealer against only some players simultaneously. As a result this game normally has quite high bets.
Nowadays, there are a lot of online casinos offering three abovementioned games (for example, such games are generally offered in casinos with Playtech software), but at present there’s no video poker, although there’s talk on its promotion. There is an idea to propose players to make use of their web-cams: each player will film himself during game and transmit the information to a server that will distribute this data among other players. As a result one can begin to see the opponent’s face during the game and that will add new options, particularly for players’psychology experts. Needless to say, these proposals are not realized nowadays however when they’ll be realized the Internet-poker can be quite similar to offline poker.
Another latest thing that’s used in gambling is 3D graphics. Some years back Intercasino had announced the advent of new version of software – “the first 3D casino”, although, in reality there have been several static 3D portraits of players. Ever since then quite many casinos and some poker-rooms had produced so-called 3D software; usually there have been completely static, pre-rendered pictures of men asia999 and women and table which had little in keeping with “real 3D “.But, in general, tridimensionality in casino is not so interesting – 3D table or even a dealer won’t be considered a revolution, though 3D aftereffect 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 during this temporary it had become one of the leaders on visiting statistics (more than 5000 players at the same time, although many of them play for love), even despite of lack of Americans and option of 1 table game.
PKR offers the choice to look at the table from different views as well as to pick the unique appearance of player, and this is the case: there are a lot of forms of faces, hair styles, hair colors, clothes, footwear and accessories, so it’s extremely difficult to meet two similar players not only at one table but in all room. Appearance and standard clothes are possible to obtain cost-free, though expensive suit or accessories are to be purchased for points (which are collected easily and quickly), and the player can digitize his own face in order 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 required to press the special button and the player can look at them), express emotions (some standard emotions – from pleasure up to teasing), to play tricks with dibs (a few tricks are cost-free and other are to 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 all computer rooms. Unfortunately, you should have to pay for 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 only to owners of unlimited Internet access (as well as online casinos, however), because it needs quite a lot of traffic. Only its installation requires significantly more than 600 Mb, and during the game the area eats away nearly 10 Mb per hour.
Nobody knows the future results of gambling and technology mix; maybe in certain tens of years the aftereffect of presence will be reached, though now we can play the actual roulette through video broadcast and 3D graphics makes a computer game nearly real. We’ll watch for new interesting decisions that will make the game even far more convenient and pleasant.
