RealTime Gaming Blackjack Software
RealTime Gaming is another popular software provider known for its classic game designs. The company was founded in the US and mostly catered to US players before the Internet Gambling Act of 2006 was set in place, after which they moved to Costa Rica where they were acquired by a Curacao-based company that owns them to this day.
But throughout the years and changes, RealTime Gaming has stayed loyal to its US player base and still offers services to US players via offshore platforms that specifically cater to them. Thus, it’s mostly this group of online players that has taken a liking to their game designs, although international players play them just as much. They produce a wide range of games, from slots to table games and keno, as well as a successful line of card games.
