Playtech's gaming software carries an official Certificate of RNG Evaluation from Technical Systems Testing (TST), an internationally recognised and respected Accredited Testing Facility (ATF).TST has been working with industry operators, suppliers, manufacturers and regulators to ensure that gaming products operate in a manner that is fair, secure and auditable, and comply with some of the world's most stringent and comprehensive legislative and regulatory requirements.

The poker software has been extensively tested by an independent testing lab who specialise in this type of analysis, TST TECHNICAL SYSTEMS TESTING. In addition to examining the Random Number Generator (RNG) code, they run samples of 10 million hands and examine the results against statistical norms for every type of hand.
Random Number Generator
Random Number Generator (usually referred to as RNG) is a hardware device used to ensure the fairness of the poker games. RNG generates a sequence of numbers which correspond to various results in all the games. Nobody can predict the next number in a series, no matter how many previously generated numbers have come out. RNG's outcome can't be modified or predicted in any way, so the results of the games are really based on a combination of luck and game skills. The results of the games coming from the RNG are not player dependent. The RNG works for the whole gaming system.
We utilise a true random number generator to ensure total game integrity, providing our players with real-time on demand transaction and game histories from within the poker software.
