Shuffle type (static shuffle)

To copy real-life poker as much as possible, we use a static shuffle.

  • Once the deck is shuffled, it is set, and no one can change the order in which the cards will fall.
  • The cards aren't continuously reshuffled throughout a hand. Besides, the cards that come out are completely independent of the action at the table.
  • The shuffle on our site is just like at a live casino. We shuffle the cards, and we then deal them as needed.
  • Therefore, it's impossible for us to generate so-called 'action flops' or biased rivers. Since the order of cards is pre-determined, it's impossible for our software to predict future moves or favor specific players.
