When leading online gaming software providers offer their software to casino operators the package includes more than the software required to run the casino games. It includes the administrative functions required to conduct real money wagering at the online casino.
The first action performed by a player at an online casino is registering and opening an account. The software comes into play from that action. The software maintains a separate account for each player and till the player closes the account the software records each and every move made by the player. This includes every wager placed on every game and also the outcome of that wager. The software provides for the player to access this information so that the player can refresh his memory or analyze his game play at leisure.
Carrying out financial transactions is an important function of the software. The software contains the required protocols and safety measures to ensure a secure environment for sending and receiving funds. The software also provides an interface with the various financial services providers, be they credit card companies or electronic wallet companies. The player's account is automatically linked to any game the player may choose to wager on. The amounts won or lost playing that game reflect in the player's account. The software allows the player to access his financial transactions history in the same manner as his gaming transactions history.
In order to remain competitive online casinos have to offer a number of bonuses. A number of conditions are attached to the bonuses. The software keeps track of whether these conditions are being met in the case of all the players. An important factor here is the wagering requirements. The wagering requirements are not the same for all players. Players from certain countries have to meet higher wagering requirements. Therefore the software maintains the link between the player, his country and the wagering requirements for that country. The software keeps track of whether the wagering requirements have been met and if a player requests a withdrawal before meeting the wagering requirements then the software has to be able to block that withdrawal request. The situation can become more complex in the refer a friend bonus in which the software has to keep track of the link between the player and the referred friends and also keep track of when the referred friends complete their obligations so that the bonus can be awarded to the player.
Many online casinos offer tournaments on a regular basis and this requires an independent and different set up in the software. Usually a player is allowed to participate only once in an online tournament and the software incorporates a check to ensure that the same player does not enter the tournament twice. The scores of the different players have to be stored and compiled on the leader board. As fresh players participate in the tournament the leader board has to be continuously updated. All these capabilities are built into the software.
Players will realize that the software has to perform an enormously complex functions and it is natural for them to wonder if the software is really competent to do so. In order to ensure that there is no flaw in the software, the online gaming software providers arrange to have the software evaluated by independent expert agencies so that they, their licensee casino operators and the players are satisfied beyond doubt of the capabilities of the software.
