AstorGame will change the eSports

25.12.2017

If you prefer to place bets on events or tournaments, eSports, sports, casino games, or games of chance, then can sign into the betting platform, casino, or lottery developed specifically for this specific client profile.

Security and Smart Contracts

These two concepts are the foundation of the change that we at AstorGame are planning for the gaming and betting sector. At all times, the funds paid in by AstorGame’s players will be protected by a smart contract, which is to say that if there are, between players and bettors, ten thousand users on the web platform and it is attacked or, for some reason, goes offline, the funds will automatically be returned to their respective owners by means of the smart contracts. The platform will enable entries to be recorded on a blockchain and allow for the utilization of smart contracts to manage the logic of the business, schedule prize payments, collect payments for tickets, bets, and drawings, and schedule tournaments and outcomes. All of this data is public and can be verified at any time.

Provably Fair

Casino bettors and lottery players have often felt unsure about whether the house was cheating them by manipulating the outcome. At AstorGame, we use various technologies to solve this problem. One of these, Provably Fair, enables the client to verify that each game played follows the rules and that values have not been changed by a third party in order to put them at a disadvantage. Currently, encryption technologies are a big help in coding a string of values, be they numbers, text, or alphanumeric, thus preventing anyone from ―cracking‖ the outcome and changing it. An encrypted value will be acquired from the user’s browser that will not be known to AstorGame’s server.

This cryptographic technique will be implemented by way of a cryptographic algorithm, using a hash function (SHA256) to carry out a series of encryptions and obtaining several hashes (an alphanumeric string: numbers + letters combined). One of these values is immediately provided by the user’s browser. This value will not be known to AstorGame, nor will it appear on its servers. The randomly generated numbers used to display the outcomes of games such as poker, roulette, craps, etc. are determined by a combination of factors, some from the server side and others from the client side. These two factors are called ―seeds.‖ Players have access to the seed on the client side, but can only see the server side’s hash. If, for example, poker is being played, the online casino’s servers create new decks and shuffle them using a random number generator. Furthermore, the servers create the random strings. These two number strings are combined in order to create a unique encrypted string. The result of this process is known as the ―secret.‖ Lastly — and this is very important — a hash is applied to the encrypted string (―secret‖) using an algorithm, SHA256. The result of this hashing is known as the ―hash.‖ This value will be shown to the player before the cards are dealt, demonstrating that the game is fair. For their part, players can, at any time, verify that the decks, the random strings, and the ―secret‖ have not been manipulated by the online casino. To obtain random numbers, we use a CSRNG (Cryptographically Secure Pseudorandom Number Generator)

Smart Contracts + Provably Fair

It is possible that Provably Fair is already being used in some online casinos, but no online casino offers both of these applied technologies on the same platform. The use of Provably Fair and CSRNG, which generates numbers randomly, does not guarantee that a casino will deliver the prizes in a legal manner or that the funds corresponding to this pot will not disappear. It is here that smart contracts become more important, since they can be programmed so that the pot of a bet will be retained until it is known whether the user has won the bet. If the user wins, there is no way for the owner of the casino to keep the pot or to delay payment, as happens in many gambling houses. That’s why we at AstorGame are the first to combine both platforms for the benefit of our clients.
