Is Online Poker Truly Random

“Online poker is rigged!” “This always happens at Jokerstars!” I swear whenever I get my money in with the best hand, some donk always catches the two-outer on the river.” “SFRIGGED!” How often have you heard these, and other heartfelt, whiny allegations that somehow, some way, online poker is not truly random? Let’s take a look at how the electronic deck is actually shuffled in online poker and make a rational decision as to the cause of suckouts and bad beats. First, consider that randomly shuffled cards are pretty much the bread and butter of online poker rooms. How much technology and safeguarding do you think would be devoted to this one core value? It is number one on the list for every major, reputable site. Now let’s throw around some terms that will send you scuttling to your favorite online dictionary. Requisite for a true random generator is that it have as its source a “high-entropic and nondeterministic” root. In simple terms, this means that there is no way in which the source can be controlled, calculated or predicted. To create true randomness on a computer (whose language is math - the opposite of randomness), programmers turn to physics, specifically quantum mechanics which deals with the relationship between matter and radiation. In quantum mechanics, specific phenomena - such as atomic nuclear decay - are fundamentally random and cannot be, in principle, predicted. The utility of these phenomena are integrated by hardware random number generators to produce a genuinely random number. These hardware number generators are used by poker sites to shuffle the deck ,and are systematically tested by independent, neutral third parties. The outcome is that the deck shuffle online at a reputable site is actually more random than it could ever be in live play. So who’s responsible for all those sick beats? Obviously the gods of variance. Go forth and sacrifice your finest young ram at the first rising of the new moon. Then grovel a little, and head over to your favorite poker site for truly randomly shuffled deals. (Be sure to wash the ram-goop off your hands first.) GL!
