TECHNOLOGY HAS REVOLUTIONIZED SECURITY IN ONLINE GAMING; HERE’S HOW

We live in a digital era where technology has taken over every sector of the economy. Compared to a couple of years ago, technological advancements have come so far and continue to go far. The evolution of technology is not only good news to ordinary individuals but also large corporations and companies. 

One such revolution can be witnessed in the online gaming industry.

The online gaming industry has shown massive growth in the past few years. It is now a multi-billion dollar company despite being a juggernaut. Due to its growing popularity, the need for security has become imperative. And since online casinos have adopted various high-tech security devices, players can no enjoy optimal safety as they partake in their fun gaming activities.

On that note, below are some of the ways technology has impacted online gaming.

Let’s delve into specifics.

  • The use of random number generators

One of the best innovations technology brought to the online gaming industry is the random number generator.

In offline casinos, also known as live casinos, card shuffling is normally done by dealers. They are also the ones who spin wheels to ensure a fair game. However, online casinos are on a virtual platform and dealers are not practical. That is where random number generators come in.

Random number generator is a software that spins tables and shuffles cards virtually. Without it, online games would be prone to manipulation from casino staff compromising the legitimacy of the games and the ability for people to win jackpots fairly.

  • Regulatory measures have been put in place

One of the reasons why a several people are a bit skeptical about the whole idea of online gaming is the possible risk of fraud from online predators a well as various gaming sites.

However, technology came to the rescue.

Regulatory bodies, as well as license providers, have embraced technology and use it to determine the legitimacy of a gaming site. They also know whether or not a gaming site practices fair play.

The reason why such technology is used is that, without rules and regulations, some unscrupulous gaming sites would exploit its players by stealing from them or rigging games in favor of the house.

Additionally, there are various independent bodies whose job is to test things such as the random number generator as well as other security information.

  • Tighter security on banking transactions

The security of their money has been the number one cause of concern for many online gamers. With the large number of identity theft cases, gamers fear that their banking information might be stolen and end up being victims of online theft.

As such, online casinos have adopted encryption technology that keeps gamers’ information safe. They also use the same technology banks use to ensure gamer’s money is kept safe from fraudsters; A security technology known as Secure Sockets Layer (SSL).

SSL allows gamers to safely deposit and withdraw funds from gaming sites. It is also used by other industries to secure many other online transactions.
