PNRG determines the order of the cards in card games, the results produced by the spinning of a slot machine or a roulette wheel, the outcome of a dice throw, etc. This PRNG will ensure that the games you play are both fair and unpredictable.

– Live dealer casinos games

When you play any live dealer online casino games, a human dealer runs the game in real time from a casino gaming table. You can see the dealer through a live streaming video link, bet through the consoles on your computer screen, and communicate with the dealer through a text chat function.

The outcome of the game is determined by the dealer and is translated into data that can be utilised by the software by the means of OCR (Optical Character Recognition) technology. With the help for OCR, you can interact with the game in the same way as you would with a virtual casino game, except that the results are determined by real-life actions rather than automated processes.
