We now live in a world where more and more of us are using the internet to help us manage our lives and improve our leisure time. We shop online, we research and book our holidays online, many of us bank online and even file our tax returns online, and of course we play games online. The quality of our internet experience is however totally dependent on the efficiency and ease of use of the website we are using, which in turn is dependent on the software that manages the site. Most of us do not usually give a second thought to the computer software, but many experts will tell you it is the software which determines the success of any website. In the world of online gambling it is becoming increasingly clear that the casino gambling software is even more important because it is the online gambling software companies who design the casino games we play. One only has to look at the progress of the gambling software company Playtech to realise how important the online gambling software has become. Having been a prime mover in the success of the William Hill online gambling site, their joint venture has now finished and their services have immediately been snapped up by Ladbrokes. The online sports gambling sites also rely heavily on the quality of the gambling software, although mainly from the point of view of the financial management and security of the site, but it is the online casino gambling sites where the influence of the software is most obvious, particularly in the range of slots gambling games on offer. Anyone who has played slots gambling games on several online casino sites will have noticed that the range of casino games and the computer graphics on some sites are remarkably similar because they use the same casino software. This is unfortunately the result of the current dominance of four big online gambling software companies in the market, however there are a number of smaller software companies and the online casino gambling sites which use these smaller companies are where you will find a different choice of games. Fortunately for those of us in Ireland this includes both Paddy Power and the All Irish casino sites, so check them out if you love variety.
