The Internet and computers are probably the fastest-growing fields of technology. Because of this, the casinos as well as poker-rooms attempt to ride the wave and use any new technology that is available.
While the initial online casinos were made using HTML, many have since adopted flash technology. Offline casinos have made improvements to their graphics, sound, and added new games over the years. With the advancement of broadband access, online gambling has seen its first major breakthrough. You can play not against a computer, but against real dealers using real equipment. A video recording may be made of the entire game. Roulette has been the first online game vworld. Because it can be broadcast live online, any number of players can participate at one table.
After placing the stakes, the real spin occurs. Gamblers then receive one final number along with payments equal to their bets. The downside is that it is difficult for swindlers to con the casino with too many gamblers. Baccarat quickly became online. The player cannot make any decisions during the game and cards are dealt on a consistent pattern. However, blackjack was a more popular game that presented problems. Multiplayers cannot play at one table simultaneously as they each decide whether to take or reject a card. These decisions can be different and the dealer may not be able to execute them simultaneously. The reason online blackjack can be played simultaneously with real blackjack is that one dealer plays against several players. Because of this, the game often has very high bets.
Today, many online casinos offer the three games mentioned above. Playtech software casinos often have these games, but there is currently no video poker. Although there is talk of it being promoted, there is no current availability. A new idea has emerged that players could use their webcams to film themselves playing and transmit the data via a server to other players. You can see your opponent’s face and it will be visible during the game. This will open up new possibilities, especially for psychological experts. While these suggestions are not currently being implemented, the Internet-poker will look very similar to offline poker when it is.
The latest technology in gambling is 3D graphic. Intercasino had announced several years ago that it would be launching a new version, “the first 3D Casino”, but there were still static 3D portraits. Since then, many casinos and poker-rooms produced 3D software. However, most of these versions had pre-rendered static pictures of people and tables which were very different to “real 3D”. Although tridimensionality is not very common in casino, it was not unusual for 3D software to be created. These included tables with pre-rendered images of people and tables that were not “real 3D”. However, the 3D effect on poker has become quite unique. PKR was the first 3D-real poker-room. It had just been opened a year earlier and has since grown to have more than 5000 visitors per day, even though there are no Americans or only one table.
PKR lets you view the table in different perspectives. You can even pick the unique appearance for each player. While standard clothing is free to download, more expensive suits or accessories can cost points. Players can also digitally digitize their own faces to make their poker avatar. Players are active and move around a lot. All players agree that PKR offers the most realistic experience of any computer room.
