Online casinos allow players to preview games so as to give them some idea about the games. This helps the player in deciding whether or not he wants to play a particular game without downloading and opening that game. Playtech online casinos allow preview of games at two levels. One is from the visitor's web site that is in the public domain. The second is from the games menu which can be accessed after the player signs up with the online casino and logs in. All Playtech online casinos do not offer exactly identical games preview mechanisms, but they are generally similar. This article discusses the mechanisms as presented in Casino Del Rio.

In the Casino Del Rio visitor's web site the link to the Games Preview page is in the bottom toolbar. Some Playtech online casinos have this link in the top toolbar. The Games Preview page in Casino Del Rio lists the broad games categories. These are Card & Table Games, Bonus Games, Slot Games, Progressive Games, Arcade Games, Video Poker, Favorite Games, Live Games and Asian Games. On clicking a particular category the games previews related to that category can be seen. The previews appear only as a screenshot of the games in a new window. The screenshots of the different games in the category can be seen by using the Next and Previous arrows. The screenshots do not reveal much pertinent information; especially to new players who are the ones that would be using the games previews the most. They appear in sequence and hence players have to scroll through the listing in turn in order to find the game they are looking for. And the categories with large number of games do not have screenshots for all games. Therefore the usefulness of this games preview is limited.

More useful previews can be obtained after logging in to the Playtech online casino. When the player clicks on a particular game the preview is displayed in a box. This preview is available for all games. Also it is much easier to access a particular game because all games of a particular category simultaneously appear on one page. All games previews offer a screenshot but relevant textual information is offered as well. This information depends on the game.

In online slot games the following information is provided. The information includes the number of reels and paylines, details of the free spins bonus round if there is one, mention of bonus games and gamble game if offered in the slot, the highest payout offered and mention of any special features like expanding wilds. The free spins round details include the number of free spins and the multiplier. If a progressive jackpot is offered then that is mentioned.

Blackjack is another game in which players look at previews because of the variations in rules and formats. The Playtech previews at Casino Del Rio provide the following information for blackjack games - the number of decks, doubling and splitting rules, side bets and special bets and unusual features. For example Blackjack Surrender offers the following text - surrender and keep half your bet, played with 8 decks and doubles on any first two cards.

Casino Del Rio belongs to the Euro Partners group and is licensed in Antigua and Barbuda.
