There are many online casinos, and fewer online casino software providers. The online casino software providers create online casino slot games that are then offered to players at online casinos. Since there are many online casinos receiving games from the same software providers, one may wonder if all the online casinos that use the software provider in question are exactly the same.
The answer to that question is that the online casinos are not all exactly the same. There can be differences because the choice of online casino games available at the online casinos may vary. There may well be a number of online casino slot games, especially branded online casino slot games, that are the same. However, there is a special feature that is offered by many of the bigger online casino software providers, and that is custom online casino slot games.
Some of the bigger online casinos or the online casino groups, such as the English Harbour Group of online casinos, the Jackpot Factory Group of online casinos or the Fortune Lounge Group of online casinos, will often have online casino slot games that have been designed specially for their casino or groups of casinos.
In the past, Microgaming has designed an online casino slot game especially for the Fortune Lounge Group of online casinos. The slot is called Fortune Lounge, and the symbols that can be found on the reels include the logos of the online casinos that make up the group, such as Seven Sultans, Platinum Play, Vegas Palms, and Royal Vegas. The wild symbols is represented by the Fortune Lounge logo, and the scatter symbol is the Fortune Lounge Players Club logo. When Microgaming made a customized online casino slot game for the Jackpot Factory group of online casinos, where the wild symbol is the group's logo, however, the other symbols do not use the logos of the online casinos in the group.
Many online casino software providers do not offer the service of customizable slots, however, they will sometimes create a special one-off custom slot game for one of their larger online casino customers. This will usually mean that the slot is based on the theme of the online casino for which it is being created.
Although not all online casinos will have customized online casino slot games, the look and feel of the online casinos will differ considerably, even when they come from the same online casino software provider.
