The games are safe, fair, and random, according to every online casino. On their websites, they always mention independent labs or firms that have examined their games and systems, auditing to ensure no dirty activity is going on behind the scenes.

Obviously, gamers need to trust the sites they play on, especially when real money is involved. But how much do you know about the test groups? There are several well-known testing labs, and even if you recognize their names, you probably know nothing about their work. Here are some of the biggest online gaming organizations that evaluate and analyze games.

What are Fairness Tests?

  • To be considered fair, an online casino game (slots or table games) must meet the following criteria:
  • All game outcomes must be random.
  • After approval, an online casino cannot influence the game’s outcome.

So, casino game testing businesses make sure that both of the aforementioned statements are true.

But How do They Know?

Regarding outcome randomness, we all know that each online casino game has an RTP (return to player) %. So testing businesses must check whether claimed RTP is accurate. For example, a 97 percent theoretical RTP online slot. Many millions of spins on this slot are routinely compared to theoretical RTP. If they match, the game is ready to serve to online casino players.

Then, after the game is certified and available to online casino players, a fairness testing business must ensure that randomization is maintained. This is a complicated topic, but it all boils down to making sure RNG (random number generator) software is properly built and segregated from online casinos’ web servers so they can’t alter RNG.

They Can Be Classified as Follows:

  • Licensing exams. These tests are done before a game is released online.
  • Existing game testing ensures that an online casino game is always fair.
