Why a Random Number Generator Is Important in Casino Software Solutions
Reputable online casinos usually need to include a component which ensures players that the outcome of gambling is fair, safe and cannot be predicted. This process is called generating a random number, and is used by casino developers to prove the fairness of their casino software solutions. Even though the games reveal an instant result while played, the events behind the software are more complicated.
Even though this process is based on mathematical formulas, or algorithms, that could take up to certain days to solve in real life, the high processing speed available in today’s computers solves these processes instantly.
When the players hit the Deal or Spin buttons, depending on the game, the random number generator (RNG) is activated, and the software generates a certain number (or a couple of numbers) for an event. For example, in roulette, a certain number is linked to the 00 number. When the RNG generates the number linked to the 00 number, the ball will land on number 00. The casino software solution should allow every number from the roulette wheel to have equal probabilities like the others of being dealt.
The RNG also verifies that the results generated will not follow a certain pattern. This way, even if a player presses Spin 1,000 times, he will not have the possibility to predict which symbols will appear on the screen next. Like so, all the successive events are independent, and the past outcomes do not have any influence on the future ones.
Operators who are looking for casino software solutions should know that the mathematical algorithms that online casino developers implement should be tested by expert agencies, in order for players to be sure that the games are fair. Companies like iTech Labs, who have already certified a large number or RNGs, can prove that the different algorithms are always provably fair. Casinowebscripts' RNG has been certified by iTechLabs, since March 2014.
