Special Features

Realtime software offers both downloadable software, and also the convenience of Flash “Instant Play. “ A centralized customer service with an integrated customer access log also speeds up the resolving of any encountered problems on any of their powered sites.

Our Verdict:

Realtime’s past track record on “Rogue” casinos are pretty dismal, but fortunately today their reputation has greatly improved over the past decade or so. A few of those “Rogue” branded casinos’ are still out there, but seem to run their casino’s independent of Realtime Gaming’s authority or control. Non-payment complaints are the primary issues stated from players. This shows an important Achilles heel of RTG casinos – The lack of “Real” RTG control over the casinos that use the company’s software. All in All, Realtime Gaming is considered as trusted longtime contender in the Casino Software Industry.
