Cryptologic Online Casino Games

Cryptologic Online Casino Games
Cryptologic is a leading online gaming software provider. Along with Microgaming it pioneered this industry. Today the number of online casino games offered by Cryptologic is only next to that offered by Microgaming. Cryptologic made a niche for itself with its branded slot games. So popular are these games that Cryptologic has started offering them to casinos operating on other software platforms. In 2009 Cryptologic signed over 20 such deals. This article discusses the various online casino games categories offered by Cryptologic. Slots form the bulk of the games at Cryptologic. Cryptologic has developed branded slots in conjunction with three parties and these are separately listed. Two of these categories were released late last year. DC Comics branded slots contain the games Superman
Batman and Wonder Woman. Paramount branded slots contain Forrest Gump and Braveheart. The mainstay of the Cryptologic branded slots is Marvel Comics. There are over 15 games in this category. There are several other sub categories of slots games. Casual Game slots have unusual slots based on popular games. Jenga and Cubis are the most played slots in this category. Cryptologic has a category called Rapid Fire Jackpot. These slot games come with progressive jackpots that are awarded randomly. These jackpots are not large but are hit very often
hence the name Rapid Fire. There are the three reel slot games that are grouped under Traditional Slots and Fruit Machines
which are pub style slot games with features like Nudge and Hold. The bulk of the online slots are the five reel video slots. These are too many in number to be clubbed in one group. Therefore they are listed by the number of paylines. Cryptologic offers two All Pays slots
which have 243 paylines enabled. These are Just Vegas and Savannah Sunrise. Of the Table Games
Blackjack and roulette are listed separately. There are 11 blackjack games on offer at Cryptologic online casinos. There is a single deck game that offers the highest average payout ratio on optimal play. The only problem is that it has a minimum wager of $25
which can be steep for low rollers. The blackjack games include two multi hand games and fun games like Pontoon and Perfect Pairs. The two online roulette games offered are American Roulette and European Roulette. The online games listed under Table Games mostly include variants of Casino Poker. The popular casino poker games offered by Cryptologic are Let It Ride

Differences in Online Casino Tournaments

Differences in Online casino Tournaments
Tournaments are a popular form of online gambling. Therefore many of the leading online gaming software developers have integrated tournaments into their product. Each of these software developers offers their unique brand of online tournaments with their distinctive advantages. This article discusses the online tournaments offered by some of the leading software developers. Microgaming is the leading online software developer and it has a very sophisticated tournament format. It offers both scheduled and sit and go online slots tournaments. Microgaming has selected a few of its popular slots games and given them a special tournament interface that provides players with the specific information required to enhance their performance in the tournaments. Some of the games that Microgaming has chosen for this purpose are Tomb Raider
Thunderstruck and Avalon. Microgaming online casinos offer one fairly large sized prize pool tournament every week. The rest of the online tournaments catered to low rollers. Many of them are freerolls or have low entry fees. The one drawback of Microgaming online tournaments is that the detailed schedule is available only from the casino software. Vegas Technology has one of the best promoted online tournaments in the industry. Its online casinos display the entire schedule in the visitors’ area under the Tournaments tab. Hence players can check out the schedule without having to log in. The schedule for the entire month is put up at the beginning of the month making it convenient for players to plan their wagering. One of the best aspects of Vegas Technology online tournaments is that each online casino group powered by Vegas Technology has its own set of tournaments. Hence playing at online casinos of different Vegas Technology groups provides a different experience. The variety of online tournaments is unmatched. There are low prize pool tournaments with low buy-ins for low rollers. There are tournaments with the prize pool running into tens of thousands of dollars. There are pot prize tournaments where the prize money depends on the number of participating players. Vegas Technology online casinos also offer tournaments in blackjack and video poker. For players who love blackjack
Realtime Gaming (RTG) online casinos are the place to be at. The RTG software provides the best blackjack tournaments online. Both scheduled and sit and go online tournaments are offered. Most of the tournaments cater to low rollers
which serves to increase the base of blackjack players. However there are two events that expert players go for. One is the multilevel mega tournament known as Blackjack Bowl. This blackjack tournament runs over several months with daily
weekly and monthly qualifiers leading up to the final event. The other unique offering at RTG online casinos is the head to head blackjack competitions in which two players compete against each other. These are known as Mano A Mano and are very popular. Other online gaming software providers also offer online tournaments at their casinos. However these are not standard tournaments that run across all the brands of that software provider. Each online casino offers its own tournaments from time to time as promotional events. Articles from Casino Advisor
