Online gambling is often a repetitive task. Many players have evolved a standard pattern of wagering and follow it without end. For them even seeing the outcome at the end of each spin and having to click on the Rebet and Spin buttons is an ordeal. For such players Auto Play is a boon because it plays the games at express speed. They can set up any number of spins and watch a show on TV while the software makes money for them.
Three online gaming software providers have introduced the Auto Play feature in their software. They are Microgaming, Playtech and Cryptologic. The Microgaming Auto Play Feature is the most sophisticated. This is because it has greater customization and can be used in conjunction with the Expert Mode feature that optimizes strategy. Also the Microgaming Auto Play feature is available for blackjack, video poker and roulette as well as online slots. The customization features of the Microgaming Auto Play include the following: number of spins, number of seconds between spins, stop once all spins are complete, stop when jackpot is won, stop if a win exceeds or equals X, stop on any win, stop if credits increase by X and stop if credits decrease by X.

The real advantage of Microgaming Auto Play is experienced when used in the Expert Mode. Players can choose the optimum strategy as offered by the software or customize it to their requirement. The computer will then play the set number of games as indicated and will record each move in each game. The players can then compare their actual payouts with expected payouts and evaluate their strategy in this context. This feature is most useful in blackjack games. Each of the blackjack games in the Gold Series comes with the optimum strategy card based on the specific rules of that game. The card indicated when the player should stand or hit or double or split. The player can customize the strategy by overwriting his choices on the strategy card. In Roulette the Auto Play is used in conjunction with the Bet Layouts function, which lets the player choose from the several betting options offered in the game. These choices can be saved for used in Auto Play.
The Playtech Auto Play version does not have all the features of the Microgaming one. For example it can be programmed to stop when the payout exceeds the set limit but not when a bonus round is hit. The Cryptologic Auto Play version is the simplest because it only allows the player to set the number of spins and then plays through without stopping. The Playtech and Cryptologic Auto Play is available only for slots.
There is a flip side to Auto Play. For many players it takes away the essence of online gambling and they swear never to use it.
