Realtime Gaming (RTG)
Realtime Gaming (RTG), is a game software developer company for online casinos. In 2008 and after the passing of the UIGEA (Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act), Netherland Antilles-based Hastings International, acquired RTG's services, although the company was first founded in 1998 in Atlanta, Georgia. Unlike Microgaming and Cryptologic which requested their casino clients to refuse games for real money to players in the United States, RTG allowed the companies using their software to handle the situation at their own way.
RTG offers both instant play games that can be enjoyed without the need of a download, but they also offer downloadable games for you to add to your personal collection. Although the software is smaller than the usual ones out there, it still displays high quality sound effects and graphics. Their blackjack and slot machine games are not only fast and efficient but have been designed with original features and concepts to help boost your playing experience.
Games such as roulette, video poker, baccarat and craps are available in Internet video game versions, same as a number of original variations of some of the latest land-based casino card games including Three Card Poker, Caribbean Stud and Casino War.
As it happens also with other game developers, the game offering will vary from one casino site to another in spite of the convenient terms RTG grant to those using their software. Operators are of course free to select the games they want to provide and they can even decide their payout structures and the amount of decks you can use in a blackjack game.
Although Microgaming's and Playtech's slot machine collection is one of the biggest available, RTG also offers you an attractive selection. You'll find from the traditional three reel slots with single paylines to progressive jackpots, five reel games and multiple paylines.
RTG's video poker games, same as blackjack games, are considered to be quick, effective and very easy to use. You can find the most popular video poker games such as Jacks or Better, Joker Poker, Deuces Wild, Bonus Poker and Pick'em Poker. This last one however, might not be one of the most popular ones but its very fun and easy to learn. Most video poker games at RTG's casinos have a payout percentage of over 98%. Make sure to check the pay tables for each game.
One of RTG's most remarkable features is their large game selection made up of both traditional and popular table and card games, slot machines and video poker. They also offer original and exciting real-time gaming slots which are favourite among online gamers. However, the company is constantly working on creating and designing new games to increase their portfolio and provide its players with the best available in the gambling world.
Something to be considered is that English is the only available language at their gambling sites as RTG focuses mostly in providing its services to the North American market. This could represent some problems if you are not familiar enough with the English language. Despite this, RTG's software is considered to be one of the best available in the online betting business, highly acknowledged for its software speed and the company's reputation for being honest and trustworthy, creating a comfortable environment for players to enjoy their games at.
All casinos operating under RTG's software offer quick to download games and flash versions. You can easily access everything related to your payment history, latest upgrades, game rules, minimum and maximum bets and game history at the casino's lobby.
RTG offers one of the quickest online casino softwares in the industry, right there on top with first class vendors like NetEnt and Cryptologic. They have a very wide selection of Video Poker and very attractive and realistic graphics and animations, especially on their suite of table games (Roulette, Craps, Blackjack, etc). Players will be delighted to know that there are progressive Jackpots available. The software is intuitive and easy to use and updates are upgraded automatically. You can play multiple games simultaneously and you can control the game's speed and volume separately. Technical System Testing (TST), an independent auditor to the iGaming and land-based casino markets, has accredited the random number generator (RNG) of the Real Time Gaming's software.
