How You Know RNGs Are Fair

Stories about rigged online casinos are riddled with myths and untruths. Every industry has its fair share of scammers – no arguments there! But claims and rumours about online casinos being rigged more often than not originate from those emotional about having lost money they did not have to spend in the first place. Casinos are constantly warning players about the importance of remaining within the limits of their budgets and bankrolls, and most people certainly do. But there are also those who insist on going against all manner of sound reason and who are forever chasing their losses. And these are generally the same people badmouthing the online casino industry.

Reputable gaming authorities like the MGA (Malta Gaming Authority) and the UKGC (United Kingdom Gambling Commission) require developers and online casinos to undergo regular and in many cases even frequent RNG-audits by licensed and registered independent gambling audit firms. Authorities like the two mentioned above will outright refuse to renew an online operator’s licence in the event that the proper certification is outdated or outstanding. Which is of course good news and peace of mind to players all over the world.

Companies specialising in these types of audits can be checked out for good measure too and there are a number of reputable names to look out for in the industry today.
