What about live dealer casino games?

The primary focus in RTP monitoring is on RNG driven software product. Live dealers use physical equipment (such as roulette wheels and decks of cards) to determine the results and there are a range of other integrity measures that surround such provision. For example, there will be controls over the supply (from casino standard manufacturers), installation and continuing operation of these devices. Fair shuffling of cards, ongoing integrity measurements of roulette wheels and dealing processes all have an influence over the fairness and will be part of everyday provision.

There is still merit in measuring certain outputs after a period of play, such as the distribution of results on a roulette wheel over an extended period to see if they are acceptably random. This information will be held in databases and can easily be measured.
