Difference Online Casino Websites Make

Excellent software, attractive promotions and a license from a credible jurisdiction are necessary in order to make a successful online casino. However some online casino operators feel that the above are sufficient as well. Therefore they pay scant attention to the home page of the web site of the casino, which is also referred to as the visitor's lobby.

In the competitive scenario that is prevalent in the online casino industry there are many casinos that have excellent software, attractive promotions and licenses from credible jurisdictions. Therefore online casinos need to walk that extra mile to create a congenial gaming atmosphere and attract the attention of the visitor looking for a place to play. Some of the aspects that need to be considered are creating a theme for the online casino, having text that is clearly readable and creating graphics that are sharp. With the availability of animation technology judicious and attractive use of animation can go a long way in holding the potential players' interest.

The operators of the Rushmore Online Casino Group have mastered the craft of creating attractive online casino web sites and lobbies within the casino software client. These web sites and lobbies engage the attention of potential players and compel them to browse through the offerings. In particular these casinos make innovative use of animation.

Rushmore Casino is the leading brand of the group and was its first online casino:

Rushmore Casino offers a fantastic user experience. The first thing that visitors see is the fantastic animation of the roulette game. The camera spans across the roulette table and gives a close up of the wheel, where the ball eventually falls into the slot for '1'. So sharp is the animation that one gets the feel of being in a live casino. The other highlights of the lobby are the streamers for the individual progressive games with the current jackpot amounts and the recent winners with the amounts won. The five popular games listed at the bottom of the casino web site also get animated as the cursor is moved over them.

The second online casino of the Rushmore Group is Cherry Red Casino:

Cherry Red Casino takes the animation one step further. An attractive hostess invites players to the online casino and takes them around to the roulette wheel, the card games and the slots in an animated clip. Cherry Red Casino has a glitzier and sleeker feel than Rushmore Casino, with other animations subtly creating the neon light look of Vegas by night. The games icons get animated as the cursor moves over them and this time the animations are more lively and colorful.

One of the latest online casino of the group is Slots Oasis Casino:

Slots Oasis Casino has an ancient Egypt theme that permeates the casinos web site. It starts from the silhouette of the oasis in the background and extends to the styling of the text and graphics. The centerpiece animation reflects the focus on slots and captures the Egyptian theme. It starts with spinning slots reels bearing typical Egyptian icons. Five pyramids line up and the entire slots set up scatters into fragments of gold. These reassemble to form Egyptian statues standing aside the declaration of the huge 400% sign up bonus. As in the earlier casinos, the animation has a "Play Again" button and can be repeated again and again. The other interesting animation feature is in the menu bar. As the cursor scrolls over the tabs, the English text briefly changes into hieroglyphics before returning to its original form.

The old saying goes, "The first impression is the lasting impression" and this is true for the Rushmore Group Online Casinos.

I'm with Elizabeth on this... I think that she's 100% right. Additionally if they make it hard for us as players to find either the bonus that the casino offers or make it difficult for us to access either the instant play version of the casino or the download button there's a good chance we'll abort and go somewhere else to play.

The two key factors in a good online casino website if you ask me are whether they make it easy to see what the sign-up bonus offering for the casino is and additionally having a big and bold download button that's clear and easy to find. I think the flash the the long loading of some of the websites I've visited in the past are more of a deterrent for me then something that puts me in a state of awe...

I'm not really of the opinion that a casinos website is what makes an online casino great. Sure it helps in getting players to either create accounts or download software but what makes online casinos great is good processing, good customer support and a good platform to operate on.

These guys have done a great job on their websites... so much so that I would go as far as saying that they more then likely have the best online casino websites out there. Both aesthetically and functionally. I think that visually my favorite one of the bunch is Cherry Red Casino, then Rushmore casino and then Slots Oasis. I play already at Rushmore Casino and Cherry Red and have had a great expereince each time.
