Developing an iGaming product from scratch can be challenging. It requires a hands-on approach in every phase of product development.
From creating a robust deposit/withdrawal system and bonus engine to designing and developing in-house games and managing an affiliate platform, our goal is to deliver a market-ready, turnkey solution that caters to all client needs.
In this blog, we’ll explore how we build our products by navigating the challenges of the iGaming industry, focusing on building user trust through provably fair games.
Building Trust and Transparency
We were aware of the fact that the iGaming industry is often clouded by skepticism. Since users often don’t perceive these platforms as trustworthy, we recognized the necessity to prioritize transparency and trust.
Addressing this challenge meant focusing on:
- Ensuring a secure payment processing system.
- Developing a scalable product capable of supporting millions of users without latency or downtime.
- Creating a flexible bonus engine to boost user retention and platform revenue.
- Establishing a transparent affiliate tracking platform.
- Designing and developing games that not only entertain but also earn the trust of our users.
“The key to earning trust in the iGaming business is transparency.”
This belief led our team to base all of our games on the “Provably Fair” concept.
What are Provably Fair Games?
At the core of provably fair games lies their ability to offer verifiable and predetermined game outcomes so that players can be confident that there’s no manipulation involved. Each game’s results are determined before the first round, with all outcomes linked in a verifiable chain.
Imagine a digital dice game where each roll’s outcome is already set in a sequence before you even play. These outcomes form a chain, each linked to a unique hash. Players can check these hashes to confirm that their game round was indeed part of this pre-established sequence, ensuring that the roll of the dice wasn’t just fair, but also predetermined.
How We Implemented It
Our approach to applying the provably fair concept to our games starts with generating N millions of hashes, each representing a game round. These hashes form a chain, and we publicly announce their generation, using the ETH block as the client seed, thus ensuring transparency from the start.
We announce the following:
We generated a chain of N millions of hashes for the game X.
Our N-millionth hash is 76a11ece9e181cb5f0a71e71c45ca0e431b904306b9cb161fd43025a5d3ebb8d.
We’ll be using the un-mined ETH block 17985520 as the client seed.
We usually use the still un-mined ETH block as a client seed at the moment of a public seeding event. When the selected ETH block is mined, the game engine can start consuming hashes.
To build trust even further, we’ve made our hash-result calculation code open-source. This allows players to verify that each game round is part of the predetermined chain at any time.
The Impact of Provably Fair Games
Adopting this approach significantly reassures players and addresses their primary concern about potential game manipulation. This transparently shows that outcomes are not rigged or influenced by the gaming provider. Everything is predefined long before the game even starts, and the users have the opportunity to check at any time.
The situation in which a user is putting a lot of money into a single bet and losing it usually leads to anger and suspicion that the gaming provider knew about their wager and manipulated the game.
“By removing any possibility of manipulation, we address and resolve the biggest trust issue in iGaming.”
Provably fair games are more than just a feature; they show a commitment to fairness and transparency, allowing us to set a new standard in the iGaming industry.
