Dice Integrity at SimplyBG.com

The entire trust of online backgammon play is central to the integrity of the dice rolls. At SimplyBG.com, the dice rolls are extremely important and therefore carefully obtained. Our dice rolls are neither cursed or blessed. And that's a good thing.

Cursed or Blessed?

What is a cursed number or a blessed number? In a random sequence of numbers, a number may be said to be cursed because it has come up less often in the past, and so it is thought that it will occur less often in the future. A number may be assumed to be blessed because it has occurred more often than others in the past, and so it is thought likely to come up more often in the future. Logic like this is only valid only if the randomization is biased, for example with loaded dice. If the dice are fair, then previous rolls do not indicate future events.

No Motivation

Dice rolls at SimplyBG are without motivation, profit or prejudice. SimplyBG.com, with complete intent, is set-up to be free of motivators that may be construed to affect dice rolls. In no way does the site benefit from altering dice rolls. Nor does it favor any opponent. There is nothing to gain. There are no prizes or penalties for winning or losing. That is all in your control. Serious players appreciate the extreme care taken for the dice rolls. We have chosen to let the professionals, the scientists of randomness, handle this for us, and you.

Computers and Randomness

First of all, computer-logic and randomness are like oil and water. Any logic used to create randomness is false. For this, it is simply not attempted. Internally, many software languages have built-in random generator. All these generators require entropy, or noise, to produce randomness. Even though SimplyBG.com could use these built-in random generators, it does not. Nowhere does SimplyBG.com contain code for generating rice rolls.

Leaving it to the Experts

Entropy is needed to create randomness in computers. We know that Randomness and Integrity Services Ltd, Random.org has mastered randomness using entropy from the natural and physical world. This results in “true” random numbers. Random.org is used to generate highly random dice rolls for SimplyBG.
