-Smooth gameplay with short load times once downloaded
-Players who are loyal to a casino
-May be better for users on a slow internet connection as once downloaded all games are stored on your computer
Things to consider though;
-Have to wait for download to complete
-May have problems installing on shared/ networked computers and can be blocked by anti virus software.
-Download software is usually only designed for computers running Microsoft Windows.
Web-based online casino games however;
-Let you play straight away with no downloads
-Increasingly good graphics
-Good for first time, practice play and trying out a new online casino.
-Work on any computer with a modern web browser and internet connection
-Can cause a big load on your internet connection so might run slowly if you've got other stuff going on.
-You will need to navigate to the website each time you want to play
