Bodog's Random Number Generator certified

21 August 2007

Bodog Poker's Random Number Generator (RNG) was certified by the U.K.'s Gaming Associates this week, ensuring that each hand dealt was completely random and virtually impossible to predict.

"We've always prided ourselves on being the safest, most secure and customer service driven company in the industry," Bodog Entertainment Founder Calvin Ayre said. "It's our dedication to the safety, security and service given to Bodog's users that sets us apart from the competition and raises the bar for the industry as a whole."

Gaming Associates evaluated multi-player poker hands of Texas Hold'em, Omaha, Seven-Card Stud and Five-Card Stud using statistical testing and code inspection.

The tests found that the Bodog RNG "generated results which were uniformly distributed and statistically independent" and that "cards drawn for poker games were fair and not predictable."

Additionally, Gaming Associates "fingerprinted" the software so that ongoing verification was possible at any time.

An original copy of the certificate can be seen here.

Ryan McLane

Ryan McLane was a poker reporter for Casino City. Although he has a strong background in reporting, the same can't be said for his poker skills. He has never won a major tournament nor is he a professional player. He applied for this job thinking it was a joke, only to find it out that it's true, people will pay you to write about poker. His favorite word is ridiculous.

After receiving his BA in History from Stonehill College in Easton, MA, he somehow ended up freelance reporting for a couple years before being deployed to Operation Iraqi Freedom III with the Massachusetts National Guard. He's back now and is a strong advocate of the phrase "God Bless America."

Currently, Ryan lives in Boston and occasionally makes international treks to cover tournament poker and news. Feature writing is his passion and there is no need to ask for his opinion, he'll probably offer it first - free of charge.
