RTG is quite an ambiguous term. It can stand for Radioisotope Thermoelectric Generator, for the Renal Threshold of Glucose, a Rubber Tyred Gantry crane, or the Royal Thai Government. But actually, in the online casino and poker world, RTG is Real Time Gaming.


Real Time Gaming or RTG is mostly concerned with online gaming, more specifically, with online gambling. They are currently the only software providers that allows its software to be used without worrying whether the online casinos are allowing players from restricted jurisdictions. That means that most real money online gambling sites that US players are allowed at are using Real Time Gaming software.

RTG is a very powerful software provider that offers online gambling games. The company was developed in 1998, and now, RTG is one of the four largest online gambling software developers.

RTG is currently licensed in Antilles, Curacao, and the Netherlands. The RTG developers also have an office in Atlanta, Panama, and Singapore where it is known that the Asian online gambling market is increasing dramatically.

RTG Games and Casinos

RTG aims to provide games that are efficiently working with a mixture of realism and playability. RTG wants games that can imitate the actual look and feel of a real, live casino, making the players feel as if they are playing in real time. In developing an RTG software, the efficiency and speed of the performance of the software is of utmost importance, and the presence of these two factors makes the simulation more “real” and believable. RTG really takes online gaming to the next level as its graphics are very much advanced, again, adding up to making the simulation more true to life. For example, up to the simplest detail of rolling the dice, RTG uses an interesting physics algorithm to make it look just like the actual rolling of dice in the live casino. RTG also allows chatting amongst its players, so that the interaction factor at a live casino will not be lost at all.

Some casinos that use RTG are Lock Casino, Bovada, SlotsPlus, Sun Palace Casino, WinPalace Casino, Planet 7, Club Player Casino, Prism Casino and many more. RTG enables these online casinos to offer real-time games which are very impressive, especially graphics-wise. RTG already provides different slot machines like It’s Good To Be Bad and Light Speed aside from the standard slot machines that is offers. Other games provided by RTG are video poker, different mini games, and a wide range of table games. Some of these are of course, Texas Holdem, Blackjack (which RTG is very proud of for its speed), roulettes, Red Dog, Face Up 21, and Caribbean Stud.
