What is RNG and how it works?

by Jonathan Pereira Posted on 30 Sep, 2020

Most people would probably tell you that poker may be a game of luck. And you cannot really blame them. Poker is usually played in a casino right alongside other games of chance like blackjack, craps and slot machines. But the people who play poker professionally otherwise know different. In live poker events, cards are physically shuffled hence the cards dealt on distribution are random. In online poker, online gaming platforms use computer softwares to get cards randomly. You’ll ask how does this work? See below.

What is RNG?

Random Number Generator is a technology designed to get a sequence that doesn’t have any pattern, therefore appears to be random. It generates a sequence of numbers or symbols that can’t be predicted. In poker, random sets of numbers are generated before placing cards. After an entire deck is made in this fashion, it’s used for that hand only. The cards are shuffled before the start of every hand. The random numbers of the previous hand are discarded and new ones generated before the shuffle.

What is RNG and how it works?

How does it work?

To begin with, a RNG needs a ‘seed’, as the initial point for sequences of randomly spawned numbers to start out. The seed itself must be such that any repetitive pattern should be avoided the maximum number possible, as any sequences that result from the seed should be impossible to predict or calculate. For this reason, the seed itself is calculated using as many random figures as possible. For a given operation, the seed could also be calculated using the network activity at a specific instant, the time of the day, and a number of other other parameters in varying combinations.

RNGs used for are strong programs designed around an encrypted function in such a way that no two seeds have an equivalent resulting random sequence. This leads to an output that can’t be accurately predetermined, thus ensuring the possibilities in play during a given online poker game remains unbiased.

If the RNG of a poker website is found by a player, he will know the cards on the flop, turn, river, also as other players hole cards. As every poker player knows, this may provide a dominating advantage to the cheater/hacker. Hence, the auditing of the RNG is completed by independent licensed firms, and its integrity is verified on a daily basis.
