How fair are Internet Casinos?

Online casinos are fairer than many people realize. The "house" is happy making the normal profits of gambling. Indeed many of the casinos give better odds because they do not have the overhead of a land-based casino. However, all Internet casinos are not created equal.

In many of the countries, the computer programs must be submitted to the government for thorough checking of fairness toward the player, and the casino also has to be audited by one of the big six international accounting firms.

The most important part of an online casino is a specially designed program called the random number generator. This is the program that generates a sequence of numbers that correspond to various card types, dice throws, etc. A good random number generator is one that generates numbers that are evenly distributed and not correlated and remain completely unpredictable. 

If a random number generator is evenly distributed and not correlated, each number will be hit approximately the same number of times after a large number of runs. If a random number generator is unpredictable, you will not be able to predict the next number in a series no matter how many previously generated numbers you have studied.
