instant-play-casinosSome online casinos require a software download, and are known as Download Casinos. No Download Casinos use Flash or Java technology, and are played via a web browser. No Download Casinos are also known as Instant Play casinos. When casinos offer both options, game play is usually better and smoother when using the Download version, however, as technology progresses, this is becoming less of an issue.

For most instant play casinos, players will need to download a Flash plugin if they do not already have one installed. Many web browsers come with the plugin already installed. Some instant play casinos may require Java. The newer no download casinos are beginning to work with HTML5 and related technology.

Just as download versions of casinos have security and encryption methods in place, so do the no download versions. This means that no matter which choice players make, they can feel safe and secure either way. Below is our list of the best Instant Play Casinos available to South African players; no download required!!

Almost all casinos now offer no download options to their players. Since the average household now has a high speed Internet connection that is fast enough to offer smooth game play, it is easier and quicker for many players to log in via their web browsers. Although most online casinos will only offer a limited selection of games to be played via a web browser, there are some casinos will offer their entire games suite via the instant play option. In fact, there are gaming software providers who no longer offer a download version of their software. The quality of the games from these software providers is on a par with the downloadable games that are available from other gaming software providers.


There are a number of reasons to choose an instant play casino over a download casino. To begin with, players may be using a shared computer, and would prefer not to download any software to the computer's hard drive. Although a casino client download is not time-consuming, the files can be big, taking up a lot of space on a casino's hard drive.

Players can log into the casino from multiple computers in different locations if they use the instant play option. Players simply need a computer with an Internet connection and can continue play.

Those who are Apple Mac users will find that there are few downloadable casinos available to them. This leaves the only choice to either play via their web browsers, or to get a new computer. Now that the quality of instant play casinos has been improved dramatically, this is becoming a non-issue.

Those who wish to try out a few games at an online casino that they wish to sign up with will find that there is usually a selection of games offered via instant play. This means that players can check out an online casino without downloading the software until they are sure that they wish to sign up.
