Hellcome on Grimware!

Hello World!

Don't panic, yet.

Hacking and programming my Amstrad CPC/Plus for… hmm, quite a while, I've finally decided to move all the technical (paper-)documentations, tips, tricks and notes I've gathered trough the years, to the mighty intarweb 2.0 (and later). However, the task appears to be quite huge, so, it will take some time before I complete it (if I ever complete it).

If, for some good reasons, you need to contact me:


  • Arkos (demogroup on the Amstrad CPC)
  • Semilanceata (Psychopomps of the Amstrad Plus)

If you like it, do whatever you want with it as long as you buy me at least one beer if we meet some day.

Programming Languages Used at Casino Sites

Currently, there are many programming languages available, so web developers are often confused, not knowing which one to choose. The primary selection depends on many criteria and factors, where the targeted platform, the efficiency, the performance, and the tool support are playing an essential role in the process. Years ago, the most popular programming language was C++ for all casino apps. But now, things have evolved, and from Flash, many developers step by step started to move to HTML5. Here we can offer you a list of the most popular programming languages used for building online casino sites and creating the leading casino games:
  • HTML5
  • C++
  • Java
  • JavaScript
  • C#
From thousands of programming languages, casino game developers use only some of them. For example, if you are doing slots games browser-based, they are mostly written in JavaScript. Microgaming stands as one of the leading casino software provider brands, with a multitude of games developed. The Magic Red Casino offers you one of a kind deal to explore all Microgaming games for free. Submit to their no deposit bonus offers and start instantly. Well, if you are eager to learn more about the online casino industry and what programming language you need to use to create casino games like online poker or Blackjack Games, you should start reading something more to understand which language you need to focus on. It is tough to know what is going to happen in the future and what kind of new technologies would be available, but one thing is sure, the online casino companies will never stop following the latest available technologies. Online casino sites have so many promotional offers, you can even buy online lottery tickets and get your special lotto bonus deals. Players like to bet on lottery tickets anytime, and that’s why lottery software providers allow the online purchase of tickets.
