The decision to focus on HTML5/JSON standards ensures that players will experience a rich playing environment without the inherent issues involved with Java and Flash. “We want our players engaged in the dynamic of the game, not in the tedium of troubleshooting plugins,” Baker said. “Stability of the code means better performance and increased play time, and ultimately a more positive experience for the player.”
