|Today Project Fairdice announced the initial release of software designed to prevent the rigging of games by online casinos.|
Spokesperson Douglas Reay said 'This will deal a bitter blow to conmen and criminals in the gambling industry, and clear the way for the honest online casinos who give their players a fair chance.'
Currently the only way the honest online casinos have to show they are trustworthy is to invite auditors occasionally in to check on things, and many players don't trust that. Too many get ripped off once and never come back. The problem is, when a casino says they've shuffled a deck of cards fairly, how can you know if they are telling the truth?
With the launch of this initial implementation of the Fairdice cryptographic protocol, Project Fairdice is offering casinos another way. We're saying to all the casinos out there, 'Come get involved in the project. Enable your websites to use the Fairdice Protocol. If you are not rigging your games, you have nothing to lose. This is your chance to really prove to your players that your random number generators are not fixed.'
Online gaming watchdog eCOGRA (eCommerce and Online Gaming Regulation and Assurance) require in their code of practice that the probability of any event occurring shall be as for the actual physical device except where deviations are clearly displayed to the players. Now eCOGRA and other regulatory bodies have their first opportunity to give real teeth to their laws. 'It's going to be very interesting to see who welcomes this breakthrough with open arms, and who ducks for cover or tries to ignore it.'
