Title: How do online casino websites ensure data security?

How do online casino websites ensure data
It isnt difficult to find a reliable mobile
online casino when there are plenty of factors
available to look for. But the most important
thing is that a legal business (online casinos
work like corporate companies) would highlight
its security features to win the trust of players.
What makes a business legitimate? A business has
to be regulated by law. It should pay tax and get
regular communication from a body formed to
govern industries. In case of a mobile online
casino, the communication would be in the form of
audit by a regulatory body. Independent audit by
regulatory bodies There are three main regulatory
bodies that control online casino industry. These
bodies belong to the following countries.
Malta The United Kingdom Isle of
Man They have strict guidelines for online
casinos and the latter have to fulfill those
guidelines in letter and spirit in order to get
and retain the permission to run casino games
online. Any website found to be violating the
guidelines is stripped of its license to
operate. How do these bodies ensure compliance of
their rules?
Online casinos have to undergo regular audit by
companies selected by the regulatory bodies.
Casino audit is an annual event. You can call it
an exam that every website has to pass. Otherwise
it would have to down its shutters. The
regulatory bodies select audit companies that
have experience of inspecting gambling sites. For
example, ECOGA is a trusted casino audit company
that audits hundreds and thousands of gambling
websites every year.
What involves in a casino audit? The audit is
done to make sure that the website isnt using
any rigged software to take unnecessary advantage
of ignorance of players. There are many ways in
which sites could cheat gamblers. For example,
odds could be made to favor websites instead of
remaining neutral. RNG software (Random Number
Generator) has to be truly random. Second thing
to look is the process of storing deposit of
players. It has to be 100 secure otherwise the
players will lose all their deposits and
winnings. The audit companies strictly follow the
rules to ensure safety of personal data and
deposits of gamblers. What is RNG software and
how does it work? It is the most critical part of
online gambling. The job of the software is to
generate a random number taken as the winning
number. It guarantees fair odds. It works by
emulating games like deck shuffling, spinning of
roulette wheel and rolling of the bars of slot
machines. For example, take online roulette
wheel. The software starts cycling numbers as
soon as the wheel is spun. It keeps moving with
the wheels. At this speed, it can cycle hundreds
or thousands of numbers per millisecond depending
on its program. It stops with the wheel and the
number it is cycling through is taken as the
winning number. RNG software must be delicately
balanced or programmed to give fair odds. It is
for this reason that online casinos have to
undergo auditing. An audit company checks and
certifies that the RNG software used for digital
gambling generates fair odds. What steps do
online casinos take to create a secure atmosphere
for gambling?
Digital casinos that want to look safe use
encryption technology to ensure safety of
critical information like credit card and banking
details between client and server. The
information is encrypted in between clients
computer and casino server. Lets simplify the
encryption technology Secure Sockets Layer (SSL)
It is a security certificate for websites and it
has been made mandatory for gambling sites. The
certificate authenticates communication between
client and server. The process is to establish
the standard security protocols of
communication. When a client communicates with
the server of a gambling site, the SSL
certificate checks the protocol version,
cryptographic algorithm and digital certificate
and finally generates a secret key that prevents
frauds. Transport Layer Security (TLS) It is
similar to SSL but it is relatively modern in
comparison to the SSL. Today, online casinos
prefer TLS because of its modern origin. But
there is no difference between the two
technologies as they work in a similar fashion
and provide same level of security. It is for
this reason that SSL/TLS are used as a common
term for website security. How do you know that
an online casino is safe? It is simple. You can
check the URL of the online casino you are
visiting on your browser. If it is secured by
SSL/TLS, it would have https// instead of
http//. The letter S stands for security. A
secured online casino website would be
https//. What measures could gamblers take to
ensure safety of their data and deposits? Before
you proceed to open a gambling account with an
online casino, you will be asked to accept Terms
and Conditions. Th TCs tell how a casino works
and how gamblers can take advantage of its
policies. But most gamblers accept the TCs
without even giving a quick look at the
policies. Important things to look into TCs
Conditions for cashing-out bonus deposits
Guidelines for proceeding after winning a large
jackpot Rollover requirements Wagering
requirements It is advisable that you take a
screenshot of the TCs of the casino before
accepting the terms. It would help in the event
of the casino tweaking its terms and conditions.
If you find that the website is breaking its
rules to take advantage, you can surrender your
membership and quit.
Keep the above discussion in mind
To enjoy online casino games Malaysia to the
full, you should ensure safety of your gambling
account. Also, you have a right to fair gambling.
Before you accept membership of a gambling
website, you should check the seal of authority
on its home page. Also, you need to be careful
with Internet security protocols and terms and
conditions of the site.
Digital casino games are managed with RNG
software and if the software is rigged, you wont
receive a fair treatment. But if everything is
right, you will enjoy online gambling to full and
make plenty of money while playing favorite
casino games.
