About Roccos Casino

I’ve discovered (UK focused) 1 month ago while I was digging for SEO optimized casino websites.

In the beginning I thought it was a copy of the 888 software but after looking for the company who was behind the website, I’ve found it was owned by Intersafe Global a sister company of Cassava Enterprises, the legal name of 888.

But the most interesting thing is that website and software are the first to be fully developped under Microsfot .Net language.

I was wondering when we were going to see this because it’s obvious that in the future (I won’t list the reasons here), most of the casino sofwtares are going to be developped this way.
The website URL extension are .aspx and you need to install the .Net framework to use the software.

I feel that it’s a kind of experiment from 888 because there are few users who have the the .Net framework instaled on their computer and you need to download a huge file from Microsoft’s website to run the software.

Also the look and feel isn’t as good as the orginal software.

For example, if you look at the slots, you’ll see for 1 second the final results of the spinning wheel at the moment you click on the spin button, before the reels start spinning...not very sexy.

Also if you use a 16/9 screen like on the 17’’ laptop screen, you won’t be able to see the registration form properly in the software window.

It looks very buggy but I’m impressed by this moove and by the SEO work done on this website....I wouldn’t have done better myself and I’m sure we will see soon on competitive querries in Google.

On the other side, the name of the casino surprises me...all the people I've talked with about it told me the same thing: "It makes me think about Rocco Sifredi, the famous italian male pornstar". Not very glamour.

Does anyone know something about this ?
