Pssst! Wanna hear the inside story? Read on to learn the secrets of Internet casino software.
The Scoop on Software…
Of course what we’re really talking about here is the undying suspicion that many players have that the software they use at Casino XYZ is rigged. As tempting as this may be to believe the likelihood of it is very slim indeed.
The simple truth of software is that just about anything can (theoretically) be done. If you can think of a thing that might be done it probably can be. However software development is expensive because software developers are well paid and the really good ones are really well paid. Also, those development costs rise exponentially with complexity.
I’ve made no secret of the fact that I believe that the vast majority of claims that casino software is rigged are unjustified. But how can I say this so blatantly? Easy! It boils down to this: cheating is too expensive.
Let’s assume that Casino XYZ builds software with cheats. Either the cheats will be simplistic — cheap and easy — or the cheats will, by necessity, be sophisticated — complex and therefore expensive.
If the cheats are simplistic they’ll be easy to detect. If they’re easy to detect then they certainly will be, probably quickly, and the casino is sunk. Why would they bother?
If the cheats are sophisticated — read “difficult to detect” — then they’ll have been very expensive to build thereby enormously inflating the Casino’s downside risk of detection. Statistics being what they are someone, somewhere will eventually detect the patterns behind the cheats. Here the casino is sunk again but at much greater cost. Again, why bother?
Of course all of this is a moot point because all casino games are designed to return a steady percentage back to the house anyway. There is little point in a casino trying to steal money by cheating when the very nature of their business means that they can so easily do it out in the open.
Most Judi Slot players lose most of the time and that’s all the casino really needs in order to make its profits. Like I said, cheating is too expensive.
