|January 30, 2006. Gibraltar: Planet Ace (Gibraltar) Ltd. announces that the Random Number Generator (RNG) used to shuffle cards by their PokerPages Software has been independently certified by iTech Labs Australia January 2006. With a certified RNG, poker players know an unpredictable shuffle algorithm is being used, which is critical to a fair poker game, especially since the software is licensed for Real-Money play at BugsysClub.com.|
Tina Napolitano, Planet Ace co-Director remarked, ‘With certification of our RNG, players now have independent confirmation that they can completely trust the poker hands dealt by our PokerPages.com FreePlay and PokerSchoolOnline.com School sites, and in particular by Real-Money licensee BugsysClub.com.
ITech Labs evaluated PokerPages’ Random Number Generator (RNG) for statistical randomness, unpredictability, non-repeatability, internal state of the RNG, seeding and background cycling. Correct operation of the RNG ensures that cards are statistically random and unpredictable, which is essential for fair card dealing and playing.
Tina added, ‘we use the widely accepted and widely utilized Mersenne Twister pseudorandom number generator (PRNG) invented in 1997. This method is increasingly accepted as the random number generator of choice for all statistical simulations and generative modeling, especially because it overcomes the shortcomings of prior pseudorandom number generators.’
RNG Certification isn’t a one-time event- it includes ongoing monitoring. The Certified RNG module is sealed. Every day a signature of the sealed RNG module is generated and sent to the monitoring station. RNG monitoring ensures that RNG is not inadvertently or maliciously changed or replaced.
The original RNG certificate is maintained on the iTech Labs web site so authenticity can be verified.
