GSN Games is completely satisfied with Program-Ace's technical expertise and the quality of services they provide. We look forward to collaborating with Program-Ace again...
As a rule modern online casinos offer the players two main options (UI) that implement gaming process:
The concept offered by Program-Ace was to integrate the best features of both approaches, namely to make high-end 3D graphics available for in-browser playing and also to implement a multipurpose server platform that could maintain the whole functionality of modern Internet casinos. The target was reached successfully!
Online casinos enable the Internet users enter the world of roulette, poker or slot machines sitting comfortably in your chair in front of the computer. To make a journey to a virtual Las Vegas and there in the realm, where Fortuna reigns among the fields of green cloth, to roll the dice and try to win? The idea is not new.
It’s been a while since various Internet casinos started to offer their services to players all over the world. As a rule such gaming portals provide you with a wide range of various gambles (for instance, roulette, card games, slot machines, dice, etc.). The gaming process in such casinos is intended to emulate the games popular in real world. Generally the projects as such are implemented using Adobe Flash technology. This technology acquired a perfect reputation as a universal method to place casual content in browser (such as simple online games, video clips, etc.), which uses vector and bitmapped graphics. However, Adobe Flash platform does not enable the display of high-end hardware-accelerated 3D graphics.
But still nowadays due to the shooting outburst of technology computer three dimensional graphics breaks into the reality. 3D content can be easily displayed even on budget-priced systems with integrated video adapters.
Thus, Program-Ace team challenged themselves with an ambitious task: to implement an online casino that would completely consist of real 3D games that run directly in the Internet browser. Currently we are working on creation of an integral and full-functional virtual world allowing the users to truly immerse themselves into the atmosphere of a virtual casino. It is important to note that the company has already had long-term experience in developing enterprise-level web solutions for the entertainment industry and other business industries.
An Internet casino is obviously based not only on the game client but also on the server side of the system (gambling platform). Thus, PA developers set themselves the task to implement a universal (in terms of supporting diverse gaming clients, for example Adobe Flash based, Ace3D Engine based, standalone, etc.) gambling platform for online casinos that would meet all modern requirements regarding safety, flexibility and scalability.
The users of the Internet – particularly the citizens of the states the laws of which allow them (concerning age and other limits) to gamble.
To develop the client-server solution that implements the functionality of the Internet casino.
The main technological and creative tasks set for the project team:
PA team has developed a truly large-scale project (currently at a pre-launch stage) using the whole range of technologies (PHP/MySQL; C++/Direct3D/Ace 3D InBrowser Engine; Ruby-on-Rails; Java). The development of such project would not be possible without an amazing amount of analytical work made for the subject field investigation and R&D activities to create the mathematical models and 3D engine.
"The unique combination of 3D and WEB technologies and also the allocated R&D and analytical teams is one of the main distinguishing features of Program-Ace. They make our company a reliable partner to implement long-term and complex high-tech solutions of the enterprise level", - comments Oleg Fonarov, CEO Program-Ace.
"We might not have yet achieved a global break-thorough in the sphere of online gambling. Though, the project team did manage to create the solution of a new level. It wouldn’t have been possible without purposeful creative efforts and R&D investments in our in-house technologies", - says Eugene Borshch, Web Development Director.
"The task we had ahead of us was not only interesting but also technically challenging," – remarks Vladislav Kurmaz, 3D technical lead. "Our team always welcomes ambiguous tasks the solutions to which demand creative approach!".
"It is no ordinary project that combines the passion of game and mathematical rigor as well as visual impact of 3D graphics with the solidity of financial system" - considers Valeriy Zmievskoj, team leader in charge of the gambling platform development.
The core solution and its specific implementation presented in this overview was originally developed by Program-Ace for TROPICAL GAMING LLC back in 2009.
