Hi guys,

As you all know there are a LOT of websites where you can gamble, play games, etc with cryptocurrency. I've been thinking about starting something myself and I think I might have an interesting idea that's not been done yet.

Currently I'm exploring the idea and trying to tackle any issues, and the last issue I'm facing is the issue of fairness. Now, with games like high-low and roll the dice this is relatively straightforward. You can prove a fair game by showing the hash of the game data in advance, so you know the data has not been tampered with.

But how about games like poker, where there is an element of secrecy? Ofcourse you can prove the cards are randomly dealt, but how do you know your cards are really hidden to everyone else? In theory, the maker of the game could know the hand of every player and cheat at his own game. I wouldn't play a game if there's no garantee there's no cheating going on.

Yep, that's right. In this thread, a couple of people have discussed the viability of provably fair poker. There are too many technical drawbacks with the current mental poker system.

Provably fair systems are available for pretty much every other casino game, including video poker, and 3 card poker. You might want to take a look at those.

Speaking of provably fair poker games... hard not to chime in here and mention that we've obviously thought about this a lot, and a few weeks ago we introduced a poker flip game that is both fun to play and provably fair: http://satoshiaces.com

Dear lord, that has nothing to do with the complicated matter of making a fair poker game. Your site is not even close to allowing a multiplayer poker game that is fair.
