Fair online casinos exist and of course they have counterparts which are cheats. Surprisingly both the mentioned versions can be offering the very same casino games which are provided by the very same parent software company because the places which provide the games sell a yearly license to more than just the one casino and as such stand to lose a lot of money if the games were ever proven to be anything but completely fair. In fact the rumor or gossip of the games not being fair could in some cases be enough to see that software company disappear never to be seen again.
The integrity of online casino games will always have a shadow of doubt hanging over them the same as the video poker machines in the casinos in Las Vegas or Atlantic City still have their share of doubters as to whether the games are as fair as if you had been playing a regular deck of cards with a real dealer but for the majority of us it is an accepted given that the poker machines are giving us a fair-odds chance of winning.
This writer believes that if you are willing to trust the video poker machines at your local favorite gambling establishment whether that is a riverboat or Las Vegas, that you should have no problem trusting the online games at least until such time as they give you a reason to not trust them. I believe they will make believers out of most people those excepted being of exceptional bad luck because if you try the online casinos a few times they are going to prove that you do get a turn in the winners seat.
There is the fact that the games are using random number generator programs to provide game results, the gold standard in the industry for providing fair-odds games served in a completely and absolutely random manner. The way a RNG works is it has a list of all the possible outcomes for that particular game which it scrolls through at thousands of times per second and the instant the player presses the spin button, or deal or roll the dice button, that RNG stops scrolling through that list of possible outcomes and whichever one it lands on is what is returned to the player for a game result.
All the above said, I offer a personal experience as the reason I know the games are fair. I was playing video poker and increasing my credit values as I went along catching more wins and I had just increased the credit values from one dollar to the maximum this casino allowed which was five dollars per credit value. Incredibly the game dealt me a king high straight flush. The payout on it would match the payout on a royal flush at the credit level I started out wagering. The story gets much better than that however.
As a gambling guide I know that the experts all advise if you are in the above situation that you should go for the royal flush, forsaking the sure thing because the reward is so much greater but this was a lot of money to me. I felt obliged to go for it because if I didn’t what kind of guide would I be? Someone who doesn’t follow the advice given to his readers.
I have always tried to do right by those who are patrons and as such I felt confident that I was making the right decision according to the experts but of course I also felt like I was throwing away a thousand dollars because I am one of those people who gets lucky but never that lucky. I mean look at all the components that had to happen to put me in a position to win that straight flush. I felt like I had used up all my luck and like many times in the past, was not going to quit until I had made one bet too many.
So I traded in the nine anyhow, watching my thousand dollars go with it. The card which I got in return was a gambler’s highest hopes achieved, as the Ace appeared giving me the royal flush I had sought and after some considerable celebration it dawned on me that if I ever had any doubt as to whether online games are fair, that I need not look any further than this experience to know my answer.
