Many players have questioned whether FOBTs (fixed odds betting terminals) are truly random and fair or if they’re fixed by the betting shops?

Every FOBT is linked to a random number generator, that by law must not be located within the betting shop where the FOBT is located.

Once a player places their bets and wagers and chooses to spin or play, a random number is selected by the generator to determine the outcome of the game they are playing.

The mandatory use of a random number generator means that players can be assured that their FOBT games are random and fair.
