Software Provider v.s. Casino Operator
Before we dive into network promotions, let’s back up a bit and start at the beginning! You may, or may not, have heard the terms ‘software provider or ‘game provider’ and you may, or may not, have wondered how that is any different from an online casino. Here’s the thing, online casinos (usually) do not develop and produce their own software (games) that they offer to their players from their online casino game libraries. Instead, they leave that up to other companies who are specialised in game design and development, with lots of experience, advanced technologies and professionals working around the clock to create exciting new games.
At Casumo, we offer only the best game providers out there, including big names such as:
- Play’N GO
- Evolution Gaming (Live Casino games)
- Red Tiger Gaming
- Pragmatic Play
- Push Gaming
- Big Time Gaming
All of these game providers have launched their own impressive portfolio of games, some more popular than others, of course. They can’t all be superstars like Book of Dead, Razor Shark, Starburst, Gonzo’s Quest, Dead or Alive or Jammin Jars! Of course there are also software providers who specialise in other games than slots, such as Live Casino games and table games.
Now, to be able to offer all those games developed by the above game providers to our players, we need to lease the software from said providers. Actually very much in the same way as someone would lease a car. It’s as simple as that! As long as we pay the lease, we get to use the software (games) we need to be able to continue offering our services as an online casino operator.
Makes sense so far? Great! Then let’s move on to look at the difference between Exclusive Promotions and Network Promotions.
Exclusive Promotions v.s. Network Promotions
Besides lots of amazing games and our in-game adventure, we also like to offer sweet extras to our players. If you keep a close eye on our Promo Space, our blog or our social pages (you can follow us on Facebook and Twitter) you’ll notice that we offer promotions that are either exclusive to Casumo or Network Promotions. The difference is that Exclusive Promotions are only made available to our Casumo players whereas Network Promotions will be spread out over a ‘network’ of online casinos, selected by the software provider who made the promotion available. The prize pool will therefore also be split between the total players joining in via the ‘network’ of selected online casinos.
Here are two recent examples that we shared on our Casumo blog:
You will be able to quickly notice the difference between both Exclusive Promotions and Network Promotions since the total prize pool and the number of prizes made available will (generally) be a lot more significant with Network Promotions. The time frame of Network Promotions will usually also be longer than that of Exclusive Promotions.
That’s it! Nothing more, nothing less.
Progressive Network Jackpots
Progressive network jackpot games work in a similar way in that the total grand prize is generated by the bets of all the players from all the different online casinos that offer that particular game. With each gameplay, the jackpot will increase a little (predetermined) bit, until one happy player manages to land the big prize.
