Cards are randomly drawn from the deck as needed by using a stream cipher that is periodically reseeded with a digest of real world information. Random number generation is isolated from any game logic or player information in the system. Independent Auditors have reviewed the random number generation code and are regularly reviewing the randomness of the cards dealt.
The Random Number Generator (RNG) is the lifeblood of Ladbrokes Poker, it is a carefully tested part of the poker application, which is relied upon to ensure that 52 card values are generated and used in a random way to facilitate a fair game of poker among players.
This process is checked regularly to ensure that each card in the standard deck of 52 cards has an equal chance of appearing and that there are no modifications to this process that could create predictable results. Cards are randomly drawn from the deck as required, using a stream cipher which is periodically reseeded with a digest of real world information, this is known as an entropy pool and serves two purposes, firstly to increase the randomness of the RNG and secondly to make it impossible for any third party to guess, predict or calculate the RNG sequence. Random number generation is isolated from any game logic or player information recorded on our systems.
This is how the current RNG works with our poker product: 52 cards are thoroughly shuffled at the beginning of each hand. Hole cards are then dealt to each player. The flop, turn and river cards (or further streets in Stud games) are now predetermined, so there is no further shuffling of the deck until the hand is completed... just like a real life game. There are no burn cards required and any folded cards are not returned to the deck until the shuffle process begins again.
