Casino Operator Provides Players with Possibility of Online Shuffle Verification
According to Larry Taad, owner and lead developer of a new online casino bitZino, his players have been provided with a technology thanks to which they can independently and immediately verify the authenticity of an online shuffle.
He says this can be done through a ‘Provably Fair’ button he placed on the site. It apparently allows enables players to interact with cryptographic techniques that ensure verification, and
Taad also added that bitZino itself is deploying a cryptographic hash function to create a fingerprint of an already shuffled deck.
However, he specified, the SHA256 hashing algorithm does not let players use it to figure out what the shuffle of the deck actually is, so the casino can let players look at the hash before the game starts.
"Then, the deck is reshuffled using the Fisher-Yates shuffle algorithm with the random numbers generated from the Mersenne twister algorithm that was seeded with a hash of the combined server seed and client seed," Taad added.
“The second round of shuffling only serves to ensure that neither the server nor client could possibly know the final deck before the game starts.”
Further on, he opined: "When developing our provably fair system at bitZino, we put a lot of effort into making sure we were able to accurately portray to our users how it all works.
“Any single-player game can be made provably fair,” he said, adding that bitZino currently offers single-player video poker, roulette and single-player blackjack that are provably fair, and that “multi-player games will be offered in the future.”

"The 'Billy Goat Curse' has been broken! It's pretty interesting that the Cubs made it to the World Series on the date of the 46th anniversary of William Sianis' death. As the story goes, Sianis was not allowed to enter the stadium with his goat and missed out on seeing the Cubs play in Game 4 of 1945 World Series. Ticked off about it, he 'cursed' the team so they'd never make the World Series again. Good article from CBSSports Odd coincidence? Creator of Cubs 'curse' died on Oct. 22, Cubs win pennant Oct. 22"READ
"Really honestly this is all going to come down at the end of the day. The bonus offerings that casinos offer to sign up, to entice you to deposit, or the loyalty bonuses given for being a regular customer. This is where 95% of players get caught up because they huge a match bonus or sign up bonus. Take it without reading the fine print, find out later it was only for sports book, slots, or whatever the restriction was. Play whatever game they please. Then of course we have the other 5% of the complaints, that come with the standard casino we can do what we want clause. This is where the other small percentage of folks get caught up mainly. Whether they won too much at once and the casino wants to point fingers on fraud, or they just don't want to pay. I can see this doing the industry some good, finally painting a clear picture of what your getting into. Yet at the same time, I don't think this will be a catch all."READ
