Download Options In Wizard Gaming Software

Wizard Gaming is the latest online gaming software developer to enter the industry. The first online casino powered by its software was launched only in September 2008 and the second in November 2008. Both these online casinos feature only slot games for now. But despite these limitations the Wizard Gaming software can compare with the best in the industry. One of the reasons for this is that the developers at Wizard Gaming listen to what the online players are saying. They do this by interacting at online forums with the players and then try to incorporate those features into their software that the players are looking for.

Two options that are given to online players in connection with the download of the Wizard Gaming software are extremely practical. One option allows players to select the type of connection they are using. Normally three types of connections are used. The slowest are dial up connections, then are broadband connections and the fastest are leased line connections. When the software is downloaded the online casino software client tends to hog the connection to the Internet thus throttling any parallel activity, like checking e-mails, the user may want to carry out. This is particularly inconvenient to the user if he is using a dial up or even a broadband connection. Very few individual users would be having access to leased lines. By informing the online casino software client of the type of connection, this problem is overcome. The software client then uses only a part of the Internet connection leaving the balance free for the user to carry out his other work.

The other option given to users is whether to download the entire software with all the games at one go. Or alternatively select the games they want to download by clicking on them and then downloading those games only. The advantage of the former is that the downloading and installation is done at one go and players need not download games again and again as and when they want to play them. The casino software is downloaded in the background so players can carry out other operations, including Internet based operations, while this is going on. They cannot play any of the games, however, while this downloading is in progress. And this is one of the disadvantages. The major disadvantage of downloading the entire casino software lies in the space it utilizes on the hard disc of the user. Most online players play only a handful of the games that the casino offers. Hence they can affect significant savings in hard disc space utilization by downloading only the required games. The advantages of this saving are faster computer operations including game speeds and the possibility of downloading other applications on the computer.

Having the ability to change the mode as being described above so as to not have online casino software hog your internet bandwidth is amazing and something that all software providers should do in reality!

The throttling options that Wizard Gaming supports are really a nice feature and I don't believe that any of the other online casino software providers do this where they let you choose your connection. I think that some may do it automatically but they actually let you throttle based on a user selectable option. I think that the download in background and download on demand feature for games is great especially since there's many people out there that don't want to download a full suite of games but rather each game individually as they want to play them.
