The online casino giant bwin.party has been in the news recently with their work to reenter the US gambling market. In fact, the online casino giant will become even more of a giant with an announced partnership with MGM Resorts Entertainment and Boyd Gaming. The partnership is part of the bwin.party’s effort to reenter the US market. An effort that was even discussed in this WSJ article: http://online.wsj.com/article/BT-CO-20110831-704007.html
Now, the reentry of the popular Bwin.Party brand (or brands for this who remember Bwin.com and PartyPoker as separate sites) would be good news for US players since Party Poker was once the most popular online poker room in the US. But the news is good for Blackjack players also. And couple with it is the news that Bwin.Party has announced a new “Instant Play” casino.
There are generally two potential methods to use when playing at an online casino. One is to download the casino software and install it on your computer. This is actually the preferred method since it provides access to all the casino’s games and tournaments. But it also requires that the player be at a computer where they have the ability to install software. Many casino have instant or webplay options for their casino which allows a player to sign on to a web version of the casino with access to many of the casino’s games. This allows players to play from computers that may not be their own or to check out the casino before they install the software on their computer. And Bwin.Party has just set up their own “instant casino” that offers players to 75 or more games, including blackjack.
