Online casino players have different preferences and requirements. Online casinos recognize this and in order to be competitive they offer various options that allow the players to customize their playing environment. The customization features are placed in the Options menus, which is usually located in the main lobby of the online casino. The options features offered by some of the major online gaming software providers are discussed below.


In Microgaming online casinos the Options menu gets activated in the Games lobby. The options allow players to customize the overall gaming environment. The individual game options are available from within the games. This is understandable because Microgaming offers over 400 online casino games that have different customization requirements. The Options menu allows players to select from 13 European and Asian languages. The enabling full screen mode option is also available. A unique option is enabling similar games list. This option displays a list of similar games when the player exits from any game. The sounds and background sounds can be enabled from this Options menu. Detailed sound customization can be done from within the game. One option offered is Auto Log In. This enables the software to remember the password so that the player need not enter it each time he logs in. This option should never be enabled in the interest of security.

Realtime Gaming:

In Realtime Gaming online casinos the Options menu is located within each game and not in the main lobby. The sound and the dealers’ voices can be enabled by ticking the check boxes. The volume can also be adjusted. There is an option for adjusting the card speed. The full screen mode can be enabled by ticking the check box.


In Cryptologic online casinos the options menu is called Settings. It is not located in the main lobby but in the More Games menu, which can be accessed from the main lobby. By ticking the appropriate check boxes players can enable the play animations, the sound effects, the voices and the full screen mode. Cryptologic offers 18 avatars for players to choose from. The chosen avatar icon represents the player on the screen. Cryptologic is the only online casino software provider to offer avatars. Another unique option offered by Cryptologic is that it enables players to set the time they want to play in a particular session.
