Top Software Providers: Best Casino Gaming Companies Online



You can be forgiven for thinking that online casinos make their own games. This is simply not the case. The unsung heroes of online entertainment are, in fact, the software developers that create and generate the game independently of the platforms they reside on.



In what is aptly titled ‘Top Software Providers: Best Casino Gaming Companies’. We look at the top 7 developers that producing the best casino games online.

These companies have produced the greatest games for the top casinos that we currently see expanding into the casino market in Latin America.

Online Casino Software

Gaming software is so very important. For the casinos, it’s about providing both quality and quantity. The more developers a casino holds, the greater the overall experience will be for the player.

Software dictates everything within the game. The programming will determine your losses and your wins.

There are two algorithms by which casino games are made. You have the RTP program which stands for Return to Player. This program calculates gaming outcomes based on the money put into the game and returns a percentage of it over x-amount spent. RTP scores typically range between 94% and 98%. This program is more commonly used within slot machine games.

In simple terms, if you were to gamble with 100 dollars or pesos, then you are most likely to see a return in winnings at the value of the RTP score. 96% = $96.

The other program is the RNG algorithm.

This stands for Random Number Generator. This works entirely differently from an RTP program. The RNG works by forming random chances generated through a 30 million numerical combination. Often used for digital table games and card games.

Gaming software also transcends into the influences of general performance. Known as ‘Volatility Rating’, there are three ratings.

Low Volatility: Games produce frequent wins but are often at a value less than wagered, leading to little profit.

Medium Volatility: Games will produce spells of profitable wins and some below the wagering value.

High Volatility: Games will go through periods of no wins. However, when they do land, they are frequently more profitable than not.

This combination of gaming development gives you the complete spectrum of online gambling.

The best developers will mix these elements up and produce stunning games of entertainment, chance, and reward.
