In my opinion, yes, online casinos are fair in most cases.
Of course there are some exceptions but there are some measures you can take to protect yourself against these which I’ll come to in a minute. All casino games have a ‘house edge’ of course. This is the percentage of the casino profit from the player’s original bet and that is just how casinos make their money. You can do something to minimise this – like improve your skill level or choose wise bets but the bottom line is that you’re never going to eliminate the house edge.
So why do I think they are generally fair? Well, for starters there is the random number generator (RNG). One thing you can do to distinguish a rogue casino from a reputable, trustworthy casino is to inspect at the casino’s audit reports. All reputable online casinos will publish on their website their audit report. Auditing companies investigate and certify that an online casino’s RNG are fair and unprejudiced and that winning players are actually paid. Further, if an online casino is powered by one of the key platform providers such as Microgaming, Playtech, Cryptologic or Real Time Gaming, it’s a pretty strong indication that they are reliable. Why? Because these software providers value their reputation so much that they would only dare partner with an online casinos that has been granted a licence from respected gaming jurisdictions.
