Have you ever wondered how online casinos work? Or, did you ever think about how are the results determined in the casino games you play? For example, when playing Vulkan Vegas Canada slot machines, what decides which symbols will be displayed on the screen? The answer is actually simple: All of these and more are controlled by casino software. The vast majority of these programs are fully autonomous systems so that a human error can be prevented. But who develops these casino programs and what exactly do they do? Below we answer this question and let you learn how both online casinos and casino games work.
Casino Management Software
If you think that there are people who constantly monitor and track your actions (i.e. opening accounts, using bonuses, making deposits, etc.), you are wrong. All these actions and more are tracked by casino management programs. In fact, even the casino games you play are part of these programs. From the moment you press the “register” button, the software will define a profile for you and start filling it out automatically. For example, the bonus you will receive with your first deposit will be defined and tracked by the software. In addition, information like what games you like, how much money you win/lose and how much time you spend on which page continues to be constantly stored. The software creates a special profile for you using all these data and uses it to create exclusive offers. For example, it allows you to take advantage of a special bonus for the games you play most frequently. This way, the casino management can easily see which games and services are of interest.
Managing online casino sites is not a difficult task thanks to modern management software: Almost 90% of the work in these sites is handled by the computer programs. The companies that develop these programs are the same as the game developers. So, for example, Playtech develops both slot games and management software. The casino management can choose to buy only the games of Playtech or both its games and management software. In any case, every casino site is managed through special software, and this software can work autonomously.
Casino Game Results
Casino games are generally a part of this management software, but they can work alone too. In this regard, every game, regardless of its name, has an RNG software. So slots, roulette, blackjack, poker or baccarat – whatever you play, an RNG software is constantly running in the background of all these games. RNG is an abbreviation of the Random Number Generator, and it works exactly like this: It generates random numbers. When you press the “spin” button in a slot game or the “deal” button in a card game, RNG instantly generates a number. If this number corresponds to the numerical equivalent of the symbols/results in the game, that symbol/result appears on the screen. Let’s try to explain it with a simple example:
- If you are playing a slot game, each symbol in the game has a numeric equivalent. For example, the equivalent of the “jackpot” symbol is all numbers between 7.100 and 7.200.
- When you press the “spin” button, RNG creates a number. If this number is 7.148, for example, you see the jackpot symbol on the screen. If not, you don’t see it.
- The results of the RNG is completely random. Nobody, including the programmer himself, can predict the results. Each spin/round/game is unique and it is impossible to predict the RNG results. And, for this reason, it is impossible to create a “system” for slot games, for example.
Live Casino Software
Live casino games, on the other hand, work differently as can be guessed. In these games, the dealer determines the result, not digital RNG software. For example, if you are playing a card game, what the next card will be depends entirely on luck. In a way, we can say that live casino games work in the same way as RNG software, because the result is determined by actual luck in both of them. In live games, casino software deals only with issues such as seat tracking, stream quality, and interface buttons: Games are run by real people. In any case, the casino software is an integral part of our gambling experience and even land-based Canada casinos are run by them.
