Casino jackpots are run by casino software companies

Whether you enjoy your online casino experience or not is not only a function of the online casino itself but also of which casino software the online casino has chosen to use. There are far more online casinos than there are casino software companies and only the most basic of online casinos tries to develop their own casino software, none of which will be listed at so the result of this is that many online casinos look very similar to others and only what is called the “skin” is changed which effectively means that the online casino applies its own branding. All the casino games will be the same as other online casinos using the same casino software. This is not such a bad thing as you might at first imagine as it means firstly that the software is very professionally developed and as they are specialised there will be new games arriving all the time and a second often not realised feature is that the progressive jackpots that often run into the millions of Euro are building up much faster as all online casinos that use a particular casino software are contributing to that jackpot. These casino jackpots are actually controlled by the casino software company rather than the online casino and every spin on the games in question on any online casino that runs the software contributes a small amount to the jackpot. This also goes someway to explain why online casinos are delighted when one of their casino players wins a large jackpot as it promotes their online casino without actually costing that online casino any more money. The casino software companies most in use are NetEnt, Microgaming, Playtech, Chartwell and Cryptologic so if your online casino uses one of these you will be in safe hands.
