February 2, 2009 - One of the best ways to differentiate online casinos - at least from a technological perspective - is to classify them according to their software platform. (Jeez, since when did I start talking like a smart person? Ouch that hurt my brain). Anyways, it's all in the software. The look and feel of the games, casino lobby and cashier, the betting interface and navigational controls, and the graphics of the games themselves is a direct reflection of the software. This isn't rocket science folks!

Think of it this way - the software is like a virtual counterpart of a real brick 'n mortar casino (Wow, my brain is really hurting now!). But seriously ya'll, it's important that the casino(s) which you call home are powered by a reputable software platform. Now, whether the software developer is entirely independent of its licensees - such as the case is with Microgaming and Real Time Gaming - or, the software developer owns and manages the casinos branding its games - such as the case with Vegas Technology - doesn't really matter. What really matters is that the software itself has been tested to offer inherent fairness.

From here on out, it comes down to graphics, navigational controls and the portfolio of casino games available. If you've read the Software page here at OCS, you will know who these software providers are.

In business since 1999, Playtech is one of the oldest and largest software developers in business today. Now with nearly 200 active online casino licensees, you could definitely say that Playtech has brought in its fair share of players and dished out a generous sum of money over the years.

I remember during the early days of online gambling, when all I was doing was reviewing Playtech casinos - even more so than Microgaming. Of course, all that's changed since the passing of the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act, which has caused a great many top online casinos and software developers (including the top three - Microgaming, Playtech and Cryptologic) to drop out of the U.S. market. And not that things have gone sour at Playtech, for the company has managed to diversify its product offering and shift to doing business in the European and Asian online gaming sectors, the fact of the matter is that U.S. bettors still make up the lions share of business at online casinos.

Recently, OCS churned out two more reviews of Playtech powered online casinos - Casino Bellini and Casino Tropez. - bringing the total of Playtech powered casinos listed here to just four. I know, there's a lot more Playtech sites out there. But seriously, do you really want to try out all 200 something Playtech online casinos? And furthermore, do you really think you're going to find stark differences amongst the vast majority?

This is exactly why we have been very selective about which Playtech online casinos make it to our reviews page. OCS isn't an "online casino directory". It is a directory of the "Best Online Casinos". And I can honestly say without a shadow of a doubt that Tropez, Bellini, Europa and Golden Palace make up the best of the bunch.
