Realtime Gaming

Considering the rocky road online gambling has faced in the United States in the first part of the 21st Century, you wouldn't expect one of the bigger casino software providers to have roots in the US. But that's exactly where Realtime Gaming got its start, coming into existence in Atlanta in the late 1990s before setting up shop in Costa Rica about ten years later. The company's motto is "Take gaming seriously," which it certainly does, powering many different online casinos that each have their own unique styles.

One of the main reasons that Realtime Gaming (also known as RTG for short) casinos can feel so different is that the company gives its licensees a great deal of freedom in terms of presentation – particularly when it comes to graphics and sound. That means that you can find some RTG casinos that are very straightforward and bare bones, while others have more lavish visuals. In either case, the framework that is behind it is the same, so the menu system and banking screens should look relatively similar. In addition, many Realtime Gaming casinos accept players from the US, making them a rare breed at the current time.

The negative aspect of this freedom is that it is more difficult to tell which casinos running the RTG software might be disreputable, as the privately held company does not accept liability for the actions of its licensees. This has led to some issues in the past, including a dispute where a player who won a large amount of money at Caribbean 21 was accused of using an automated bot to play, and complaints about slow pay and poor customer service at other casino groups. It's important to remember that this is because of the unique hands off approach that this can sometimes occur, and does not reflect anything inherently wrong with the Realtime Gaming software itself, which has proven to be as secure as anything on the market.

Realtime Gaming offers a mix of downloadable and browser-based games, with many more options available among the former. Highlights include its popular "Real Series" slot machines as well as what it bills as the fastest blackjack games in the world. RTG casinos also have auto play features on some of their slots, allowing you to have the game spin automatically for a certain amount of credits while you check on something else online or even walk away from the computer entirely for a few minutes.
