While there are many advantages of playing online poker, there are some unanswered questions too. No matter how much secure you assume that the game is, there are ways whereby you can fool people. Some of the main concerns are as follows:
1.Is the software secure enough that nobody can tamper with it?
2.Can the software algorithm for RNG (Random Number Generator) be trusted? What are the chances of it being repeated?
The RNG can be trusted fully. It employs the technique employed by several banks to create a onetime debit number for transactions. The chances of repetitions of the number in a short duration are very less. The more digits you have in the number, the less is the chance to get the same number again.
You must have seen the debit cards that can be used only once. These cards too are generated using the same technique. Sam technology is used in online lotteries too, but due to the number of digits being less, there are strong chances of the last two digits being repeated, which are cashed in by the gamblers.
This is cheating which cannot be caught by the other members on the table. However, the managers who are watching the game can see all the hands and therefore are able to notice any kind of strange activities. Upon confirmation, such members are kicked off the table or may be even banned from the casino.
Another technique is to create several accounts and log in into the different accounts at the same time so that you yourself are holding the major number of hands on the table. Software engineers are constantly working to improve the accuracy of the games so that no one can play such pranks. Already the software traces the IP address of the computers that log in. Now the software engineers are working to stop logging in from behind several proxies.
