Gaming and lotteries

Online Gaming and lotteries need to provide outstanding randomness quality to secure their customers’ transactions. In games of chance, it must not be possible for a player to increase his probability to win by discovering a bias towards certain outcomes in the game procedure.

Modern lotteries and gambling machines are all based on the use of random numbers to guarantee a uniform winning probability.

Thanks to its reliability, the quality of its random output and its certifications, IDQ’s Quantis range has rapidly become the reference hardware random number generator for industries which require high security and regulatory compliance.

Why quantum random number generation?

A true random number is a number generated by a process, whose outcome is unpredictable and which cannot be subsequently reliably reproduced. The only way to produce true randomness is by understanding and validating the physical process by which that randomness was produced. In other words, randomness can only be based on physical phenomena. Since quantum physics is intrinsically random, it is logical to use it as a source of true randomness.

Quantum random number generators (QRNGs) have the advantage over conventional randomness sources of being invulnerable to environmental perturbations and of allowing live status verification. The operation of Quantis is continuously monitored and if a failure is detected the random bit stream is immediately disabled. In addition, unlike PRNGs which need to accumulate external entropy, Quantis provides full entropy (randomness) instantaneously from the very first photon (bit). IDQ’s quantum random number generators (QRNG) offer high quality entropy for use in highly secure crypto operations and solutions requiring proven and certified randomness.
