Step-by-step Guide to Installing Download Casino Software
1. Finding a Casino
CasinoKim.com has plenty of online casino reviews for you to browse through, so that you can find a casino website that offers the games and bonuses that you think will appeal to you. Once you have found an online casino that you like, you can click the link that is labelled 'Visit Site' next to the website review or description, and you will be taken directly to the casino in a new tab or window on your internet browser.
2. Starting a Download
You will see that when you click on the link provided by CasinoKim.com you will be brought directly to the online casino website's download page. Once you are there, you will see that there is a button for you to cllick, labelled 'Play Now' which will begin the download process. As the installation process differs slightly depending on the particular online casino you have chosen to play at, this button may be called 'Register Now' or 'Download Now'.
Once you have started the download process, a popup notification will appear asking you to give permission to tun the installer. This Microsoft Windows security warning is part of a standard procedure whenever you download software from the internet, and is simply there to make sure that you trust the source of the file being downloaded.
If the software you are downloading is from a casino recommended by CasinoKim.com, you can be sure that the software is safe - so you are clear to click Run. If you are only given the option to save the file, do so. The installer will be downloaded to your computer, and you can double-click on the file in the download menu, or find it on your desktop or in the folder on your computer called 'Downloads'.
4. While The Software Is Downloading
All online casino softwares download fairly quickly, ranging from a few minutes to a few seconds. The speed of a download depends on the speed of your internet connection. You will have a visual indication of how much time is left within the download popup.
5. Installing the Casino Software
When the download of the casino software is complete, another popup will ask you if you wish to run the software. You can then click Run, which will start the installation and you will be guided through the process.
6. Launching the Casino Software
After the install is complete, the software will launch, and you will be taken to a registration or log in screen (see the CasinoKim.com guide to creating an online casino account). Depending on the casino, you may need to click an 'Install Casino' button to install the casino games, or accept an End User License Agreement. After this is done, the online casino software will be properly installed and you can double-click the icon on your desktop to launch the casino whenever you desire.
It's as simple as following these easy steps to succesfully install online casino software from a reputable site.
