The Actual Gaming software saga is a lesson for all online casinos and following Actual Gaming’s closure (temporary? definitive?) this is important for live casinos that use technology from just one gaming developer. In such a situation how can an online casino offering online roulette, baccarat and blackjack from one developer make a come-back when the developer closes down? This story just reinforces the idea that online casinos should diversify the software they use so they don’t find themselves in the same situation. This is what Dublinbet and Exclusivebet Casino have done by using a variety of gaming developers to offer a wide range of games and also to avoid this type of situation.
A variety of software: A necessary choice
Nowadays, most online casinos offer slot machines using several types of software. While one can certainly find quite a few casinos which only offer Playtech or Microgaming slot machines, most online casinos generally have diversified the gaming developers they use to offer a wide range of games. Since players are used to certain slot machines, the more software casinos have the more likely they are to fulfil players’ needs. On the other hand, as regards live dealer games most live casinos use just one type of software. This is true for Paris VIP Casino and Fairway Casino which offer gaming tables from Visionary Igaming and also for Oscar Bianca and Cresus Casino which use Evolution Gaming’s software. Other casinos like Dublinbet and Exclusivebet Casino (and also Casino Extra and Lucky31 Casino –Editor’s note) have seen the value in offering live tables running on specialist software. So by offering online players several types of tables from different developers they can meet players’ needs and avoid problems.
Exclusivebet Casino runs on excellent software from Evolution Gaming, Vivo Gaming, Betgames and Ezugi so with such a variety of gaming tables from several developers even if there’s a problem with one the others will still work. Exclusivebet Casino’s diversification strategy is vital especially since some developers can withdraw from certain markets due to legislation as was the case for Netent.
Dublinbet : not really affected by the departure of Actual Gaming
Since it was launched Dublinbet has always had Actual Gaming tables and tables in the Fitzwilliam Casino, Penthouse Casino and Expo Casino have made it well known. However Actual Gaming’s sudden departure shouldn’t impact on the casino’s results as it has “back up” software that is even better than Actual Gaming’s. By this I mean tables from Evolution Gaming and in particular its online roulette table live from the Maltese casino, Dragonara Casino. Also the new online baccarat table, Baccarat Control Squeeze is phenomenal and this goes for the other tables from this prestigious developer. The same is true for other software from Visionary Igaming, Ezugi and Microgaming and also Betgames with its online lottery games.
If Dublinbet had used just one type of software and had only offered Actual Gaming tables it’d be in trouble now. Losing live software over-night could ruin years of work just as agreeing a partnership with a new developer could take months. Luckily Dublinbet had 5 other types of software and so Actual Gaming’s departure shouldn’t have an important impact on this excellent online casino’s accounts. It’s most likely that “the Actual Gaming affair” will make several live casinos think about using other software to cover their backs. As the saying goes “It’s better to be safe than sorry”.
