Provably fair is a technology that is still very new, but has the potential to create a real revolution. For the first time in the history of online gambling it is possible that the outcome of a random event can be verified immediately and by everyone. You can see if a result was fair or not. Until now you could not do that and had to trust the random number generator or those who check it like licensers and authorities. But everybody knows that they also make mistakes, can be corrupt, etc.
Fraud is also present in live dealer games, as you can see here for example:
Provably Fair works perfectly for games like Slots, Blackjack or Roulette – at least in the normal online version. There, everything is clearly specified and can then be perfectly traced. For example, how the entire deck of cards is distributed in Blackjack or how the reels of the slot machines are positioned before you spin.
The problem with live dealer games is that people with real cards are involved. And even though there has been a lot of technological development, you still have to rely a little on these “old” technologies.
New: Provably Fair Live Games
The new development are now provably fair live games like roulette and blackjack which are a kind of hybrid. The random events are “digitalized” in such a way that they are provably fair. And the character of a classic live dealer game is not lost.
Unfortunately there are very few casinos that offer such provably fair live games. One provider is 7Bit Casino with a live Blackjack variant that is actually provably fair. Otherwise, the offer is still pretty thin, which is due to the fact that many casinos have not yet understood the advantage of provably fair or simply shy away from the effort. Because to integrate this game form is not so easy and practically all games must be programmed from scratch.
