Online casino games are statistically "flawed"

Discussion in 'Broadband' started by gambling.geek, Dec 16, 2005.

  1. Online casino games are statistically "flawed" due to characteristics
    of their software, specifically the use of a Random Number Generator.
    The Gambling Geek has researched this and developed a methodology to
    take advantage of this anomaly.

  2. If you think you can spot the cycle of a 10**n RNG from a few samples, then
    you are a fool, if you are trying to get other people to pay you for this
    then you are a knave.

    Sometimes RNG are not pseudo random, like the one in my Casio Fx-8700, where
    there is a correlation between successive values - makes a lovely plot.

    Besides, anyone who knows anything about random number generation, particularly
    RNG for cryptographic uses, will use environmental noise as part of their
    generator to provide entropy[1]. For an online gaming site, the source port and
    IP address of incoming connections, plus the time they connect will provide
    sufficient noise. As a player, you have no control over who else is connecting,
    from where, and when.

    Working for Ladbrokes, our roulette machines operate using an (in-shop) RNG. I
    do not have the necessary access to the code to determine the RNG algorythm, so
    I expect it is probably some form of visual-basic newbie code that just does
    RND()*37 or similar[2]. Bleah. It could, of course, be far better. Other
    providers use some sort of satellite receiver to receive nationwide randomly
    generated numbers.


    [1] See comments in drivers/char/random.c in the linux kernel sources for more
    related information.
    [2] I do not do visual basic. Or rather I will not admit to doing so in any
    sensible environment where C or asm (or, failing that, FORTRAN) is available.
