One other aspect of online casinos that has gain popularity in recent years is free play mode and instant Flash games. Software makers such as Playtech and Microgaming have added the new free play mode to most of their programs.

What this allows the player to do is download the software for free from the homepage and then test out the games for free as well. No quality is lost; it's the same game but without any money coming in or going out.

This is especially convenient for people who use the internet in public places like internet cafes and don't have a PC of their own (a very common scenario in Asia). Many of the Flash games are also being offered in free play mode as well. So for anyone who is curious about online casino gambling we strongly recommend you try out software that features free play mode in order to familiarize yourself with it first.
