|Following British Telecom expanding its broadband coverage to 71% of the UK population last week, the most successful UK sites have repositioned their offerings to take advantage of the expanded opportunities high-speed Internet access allows. |
CasinoChoice.com, sister site to the largest provider of visitors to UK online casinos (www.CasinoChoice.co.uk), has been able to add streaming-video previews of popular online casinos to its extensive selection of gambling tools. The streaming-videos mean that users can watch videos of casino play at real online casinos before committing to downloading the casino’s software.
“The videos make it much easier for online gamblers to decide where to play. Before we had preview videos on the site players literally had to download the casino and sign up before they could see what the casino was like inside. Our videos eliminate all that hassle,” says Richard Skelhorn, Marketing Manager of CasinoChoice.com. “Players without broadband can still use the site, but they won’t get to experience the new video previews,” Richard continued.
For players without broadband, CasinoChoice.com offers its players a range of information catering to all levels of experience. For beginners the site hand-holds you through the paces of downloading different types of casino software and offers comparisons between the different software options. More advanced players will enjoy in depth reviews and ratings for various online casinos. While members enjoy benefits such as cash bonuses and rewards.
Expanded broadband coverage is well timed with expected changes in UK gaming regulation. An estimated 90% of the population will have broadband access by the time online casinos are licensed to operate from the UK.
Consumer broadband in the UK offers a 500kbps download stream, allowing players to download casino software 10 times faster than on dial-up access. But more importantly to casino players, broadband allows unlimited un-metered access so players can spend as much time online as they wish without having to pay the per-minute fees that fettered early Internet usage in Great Britain.
