Dear Abandonia visitors: We are a small team that runs one of the largest DOS Games websites in the world. We have only 3 members of staff, but serve 450,000 users and have outgoing costs like any other top site for example: our servers, power, rent, programs, and staff. Abandonia is something special. It is a library of old games for you to download. It is like an old gaming arcade with all the old games in their original format. Abandonia is a place where you can find great old games and have fun four hours and years. To protect our independence, we are dependent of our friends using the site. We run on donations averaging around 6 USD (5 Euro). If everyone reading this gave the price of a cup of coffee, our fundraiser would be made easier. If Abandonia is useful to you, take one minute to keep it online for another year. Please help us forget fundraising and get back to Abandonia.

When Abandonia was founded it was to collect and present all old games where the copyright protection had been abandoned, hence the term ’abandonware’ and the site name Abandonia.com. We are still doing our best to keep the site open and free and will appreciate your support to help it stay that way.

‐ Thank you from the Abandonia Team

We are trying to make it easy for people in every country to donate. Please let us know how we could make it easier for you.

Please give whatever you can to help us.

Retro VS New casinos
Retro VS New casinos Online casinos have been increasing in popularity since the end of the ‘90s when DOS and Linux made it technically possible for us to gamble from our computers. Today, casinos online are easily accessible from most devices such as mobile phones, tablets, computers and even smartwatches. But what exactly is it that has changed? We’re taking a closer look at what retro casinos offered, and compare them with the new and upcoming.

Retro equals rough?

Just like old-school video games, the first online casinos were quite simple, and sometimes even a bit difficult to get one’s head around. The websites were made using basic HTML-coding and sometimes had the feel of a game library with rows and rows of hyperlinked game titles, rather than an interactive site with icons. The games available mainly consisted of RNG table games, and classic slots of the standard three-wheel, 3-row setup, rarely exceeding five paylines. Deposits and withdrawals were possible by either bank transfers or credit card, often with processing times of several days, and bonuses or special promotions were more or less non-existent.

The rise of the new

As our technological society has evolved, a lot has changed. Today, websites (or apps) are readily available, designed to incorporate everything to animations, videos and previews. A fast internet connection and more straightforward software have made this possible, meaning that you can interact with the website more easily and quickly than before. The main difference between retro and new is, however, the games. Video slots and live casino are both very advanced game types able to offer players a vast selection of gaming entertainment. Lightning-fast HD-streaming at real live casino tables streamed instantly, and video slots created with animations and unique features, all in one place. Together with that we’ve also seen a rise of proper guides for gambling such as askGamblers or Casinopiloten that provides fellow players with top end information related to gambling. But, that’s of course not all. Thanks to the e-commerce industry, several smart payment options are available at most online casinos, such as PayPal, Trustly, Swish, Skrill and more, many of them processing transactions instantly, without added transaction fees. Last but not least, bonuses and promotions are regularly offered to players, where casinos give players everything from bonus money to free spins and loyalty points. Things that weren’t technically possible to provide at the beginning of the online casino era.

All about taste

In the end, the best casino is the one that can provide the player with what they are looking for. Many of the casinos that started the industry back in the ‘90s are still operational, and they have, of course, upgraded their product since. A player looking for a casino that is all about gambling and games without a lot of ‘fluff’, a retro casino might be the best choice. For extra features, high-resolution video slots, or a mobile optimised website, a newer casino is the way to go. For those still not quite sure if the old outlive the new, it’s often possible to access the site and even play most games for free. The games are played in fun-mode, which gives a good indication of what games an online casino offers.
