Casino Software Testing House Opens Shop in UK

If you didn't know already, when it comes to fair
online gambling (meaning you get good odds and don't
play at any rogue, cheating online casinos), it all
begins with the software. There is nothing more
important than ensuring the online casino you gamble at
uses inherently fair software.
Just like in the land-based gambling world, where
slot machines operate according to a software source
code, which in turn, powers the Random Number Generator
responsible for determining game results, online casinos
are powered in the same manner. The software is
programmed in its original state, thus making it
impossible for casino operators to alter the odds
without going unnoticed. This is precisely why gamblers
should be weary gambling at online casinos that use
their own in-house proprietary software or software
platforms that haven't been properly accredited.
One of the industry's most renowned online casino
software testing facility is Technical Systems Testing,
who recently announced they are to open a London office.
This is only fitting, considering the large number of UK
based online casinos now using TST certified software,
such as the Wager Works powered Virgin Casino, not to
mention the best
One of the most popular TST certified software
platforms, however, is Real Time Gaming, whose online
casino licensees like the US-facing
have become synonymous with outstanding online gambling.
The TST approval, which Rushmore displays on their
website certainly carries a lot of weight. Largely
identifiable in North America and Australia, TST's
expansion into England is a sign of the company's
commitment to this blossoming online gambling market.
Last year, TST was approved by the UK Gambling
Commission to serve as an official testing house for
online casino and gambling software platforms. Need I
say more. Congratulations is in order for TST, whose
contribution to fair gaming standardization and player
trust is invaluable.
