Random Number Generator (RNG)

We submitted extensive information about our random number generator (RNG) to an independent organization. We asked this trusted resource to perform an in-depth analysis of the randomness of the output of the RNG, and its implementation in the shuffling of the cards on our platform. See here to read the Certification of Integrity, and below for more about the organization used.
