The great thing about online casinos today is that they are available to download and you can also launch the games without having to download. These are often called no-download casinos, instant casinos or Flash casinos. These are ideal solutions for players who are unable to download online casino software for any particular reason.

Players may also not feel safe downloading casino software from the internet, therefore no-download casinos are a great alternative. The online casino will allow you to access the games providing you have the most up to date version Java or mainly a Flash player. This will enable you to simply hover over the game, click on it and it will launch in a matter of seconds (usually no longer than one minute).

Almost every type of game that is available in the download mode will also be available in the instant no download mode, but there might not be as many games per category. For example, if an online casino has more than 500 games in its download client, the no- download version will usually half just half as many games. This is common at almost every online casino that gives you both options.  

The graphics may also not be as brilliant in a no-download casino and the number of in-play features and additional settings may not be available in the instant mode. This is the only real downside to instant casinos. There are several new online casino software providers that provide Flash platforms only and you will find that the quality of these casinos happens to be just as good as many leading downloadable casinos. Unfortunately though, many of these outstanding flash-only casinos are unavailable for US players.

If you are using someone else’s computer, they may not want you to download software from the internet, so this is a great time to try out the Flash casino. You may also want to check out what the casino offers before you actually proceed to download the software so launching one of the games through the Flash casino will give you an idea of what they have.

The option is always yours when you visit an online casino, but for the best gaming experience, we always suggest that you go for the download version from the moment you enter. No download casinos offer a quick fix and are ideal solutions depending for certain situations.
