RegalPoker.com’s systems, algorithms and practices ensure total fairness to each and every player. Our Random Number Generators (RNG’s) operate at the highest level of encryption and randomness.
Every online poker room uses RNG’s to shuffle the decks and pull the cards. A good RNG generates numbers that are:
- Evenly distributed
Were a “random” number generator biased, players could recognize and exploit its bias. A poker room’s RNG is its lifeblood—a faulty RNG means predictable games, which means players quickly disappearing to look elsewhere for a fair game. It’s in the poker room’s interest to use as unbiased an RNG as possible.
RegalPoker.com uses 2 cryptographically certified and secured RNG’s. Each incorporates a “seed”, i.e. the point from which a sequence of randomly generated numbers starts. It’s impossible to predict the sequences resulting from the seed. To ensure that a sequence doesn’t repeat, the seed is calculated using as many factors as possible, including network activity, time of day and many other parameters.
How many possible points can the seed start from? 1000? 10,000? A million?
2 19937-1 , which is slightly larger than the number formed by the numeral 4 followed by 6,000 zeroes.
And exactly how big a number is that?
It’s hard to get a feeling for the magnitude of hyper-large numbers like that, because there’s no real physical property to attach to it. For instance, it can’t compare to the number of ounces the Earth weighs, as that number is a tiny, tiny, tiny fraction of the number of possible seeds our RNG’s use.
