When you click this link, Save File and Cancel buttons will appear on the screen. To download the casino, you can click on Save File button which will save the executable or .exe file on your computer’s hard disk.  You can then begin to install the casino software on your computer.

Online casinos require you to accept the End User agreement before you can install the casino. Preferably, the player should read this agreement and understand the implications before accepting it. You can use the provided link to read the agreement and mark the check box to signify your acceptance. Clicking on the install button will begin the installation process.


Installation might take a couple of minutes depending on the internet speed. Meanwhile, you might want to register at the online casino. At the time of registration, you will be asked to provide a number of details. Casinos offering services in multiple languages will ask you to select the preferred language. You may also be asked to select the currency if the casino offers multiple currency options.  Names, addresses, passwords and aliases must also be provided at the time of registration. Players are also asked to select the deposit method. It is advisable to choose the deposit option carefully depending on availability of service and your convenience.


As soon as the download and registration process is complete, you can begin playing your favorite casino game. However, if you plan to play real money games, you need to deposit money into your account. Most online casinos offer a welcome bonus on your first deposit, but we’ll cover that topic in another article. Here’s a link on more about the casino download process.
