Today gaming software should be able to handle a wide range of financial processes. Grand Virtual is adaptable to multiple payment vehicles, diverse payout methods and a selection of financial processors. Gamblers from all parts of the world are swarming on the Internet. They are most comfortable in playing on a site that operates in their language. Grand Virtual gaming software supports gaming, promotion and administration in over a dozen major languages.

The Grand Virtual gaming software can be divided into four key components. One is the Universal Gaming Platform, which contains the gaming back-end infrastructure. It is based on Unix and provides the functions of gaming servers, a game points manager, a financial stored value manager, an e-Commerce engine, a central database and an extensive toolset to handle fraud screening, data mining, player support and partner programs. It is flexible and extensible and therefore can support all forms of online gaming. The second component of the Grand Virtual gaming software is the Casino Client Software. This is a customisable game module that runs on Microsoft Windows 98/NT/2000/ME/XP and features a realistic 3-D casino floor. It enables the players to make choices of their preference such as how to transfer funds and which game to play. Using this feature, players can customise the audio and video special effects they want and access their transaction records. The hallmark of the Casino Client Software is its user friendliness. Poker is undoubtedly the most popular online casino game and Grand Virtual therefore provides special Multi-Player Poker Software. The features of this software are 3D poker tables with player-selectable avatars, an automated training room, a step-by-step interactive poker tutorial, a convenient “find-a-seat” wizard and a host of promotional features.

Online gaming is evolving rapidly and the Grand Virtual Technology Platform is subject to continuous refinement and enhancement. It has been so designed that new modules catering to new applications can easily be added on to the existing platform. Also the ability to take on the fast increasing volumes of online gamblers has been built in. Therefore Grand Virtual will not only entertain you today but also in times to come.
