Icon explanations

Casinoportalen has added a number of small icons next to all our casino reviews. Each of these describes what type of game you can find at that particular casino. This makes it faster and easier for you to get an overview of what casino you should choose, based on your preferences.

Below you will find a brief explanation of what each individual icon means.





To play on this casino you have to download a software client, or a program, from which you gain access to the casino and its games. Normally, this is where you find the best sound and the most detailed games.

Make sure that you have an anti-virus program installed before you download the software to avoid getting any malware or other viruses.

It’s very important that you ONLY download the software directly from the casino’s own website.

Web / Browser

At casinos that offer browser-based gaming, you do not need to download before you can start playing. It’s simply instant play. You should be aware, however, that some casinos require you to install a browser plug-in. If you often roam the Internet, stream videos, play games or use Internet banking, you probably have several of the needed plug-ins installed already.

Most of these types of games use Flash-player.

If you are in doubt of whether or not you are ready to play browser based games, then click here to download flash for your browser:

Live dealer

The Casino has a live dealer. If you want to take your virtual casino experience to the next level, you have to try a live casino.

Here you will find a real person dealing at the table you have chosen. A program is survelling the dealers movements, everything that happens on the table, the spinning roulette or cards that are turned. It’s all transmitted directly to your computer screen through a live feed. It’s just like being at an actual casino! You won’t get any closer to the real deal, unless you actually enter a real physical casino.
