  1. Is all my information secure?
    Security for our customers has always been our top priority. This gaming site and EFS International both use the SSL Protocol to provide privacy and reliability between two communicating applications. SSL uses 128 bit encryption, which ensures server and client authentication. This is done through encrypted algorithms and cryptographic keys.

    What all this means is that before any data is sent from you, the client, to the server, or vice versa, the data is encrypted before it is transmitted. This will make it impossible for anyone to break this code and gain any confidential information.

    Also be careful when you choose your login and password. We recommend you choose a login and password that cannot easily be connected to you, your family or gaming. We strongly advise against code words like Casino, cash, password or money. Never forget your login, password.

  4. What do I do if I get disconnected?
    If you happen to be in the middle of a game and you get disconnected for some reason, there is no need to panic. The exact state of your game will have been saved and will be restored when you reestablish your connection and restart the casino. You can then continue exactly from where you left off. This only applies if you are in the middle of a game or placing a wager. We want you to be protected from any accidental monetary loss.

  5. How are the odds created for the games?
    The odds for both real money and playing for fun modes are created by a random number generator that resides on our server. For all card-based games, the deck or decks of cards are shuffled prior to each hand being dealt.
