Why should I care about provably fair?

When you stroll into a casino, approach the cash desk and leave with a handful of chips you do so for one reason and one reason only. You have faith that you might leave the casino a winner. This faith comes from the belief you have that the outcome of the bets you are about to place will be random.

You walk to the roulette wheel and place your bets on the table in the sure knowledge that neither yourself nor the person spinning the roulette wheel has any influence over the outcome of the spin.

This is not always the case online. You find a site, complete your due diligence and you make a deposit. You play and you lose, you play some more and lose some more, and eventually a thought crosses your mind… what if the site you are playing on is not fair?

How do you know that the casino you are playing at online is not simply generating any outcome that guarantees them the win?

Step to the rescue, Provably Fair. The latest online casinos are embracing a ground-breaking technology to completely remove this doubt from their players’ minds. To generate a random outcome, gaming sites utilise a seed and run this through an algorithm. A seed is simply a starting point to generate a random number and an algorithm is a series of steps taken to convert that seed into a pseudo-random result.

In a Provably Fair gaming environment the site publishes to the player the seed they are using in advance of the game, however they do so using encryption, such that the player is only able to determine the seed after the game has taken place. In a Provably Fair game, the player also provides their own seed to the server which is used as part of the random number generation process.

Once the game has taken place the player can decipher the seed belonging to the casino and verify that the outcome of the game they have just played was completely fair. That is, the casino generated the most random result possible without unfairly influencing the outcome in their favor.

Quite simply put, Provably Fair gaming is the fairest way of gambling anywhere online in the world.

Which is why when you play at a Provably Fair gaming site, you know the money you wager is in safe hands.
