Certain criteria have been kept confidential to preserve the anonymity of the auditing process. Audits are conducted randomly throughout the year and may come at any time. Any potential problems with an audit are discussed with the casino program prior to the posting of the results.
Auditors use various anti-virus software, some will allow casino downloads, some will not. We feel it is important to know which downloads get stopped and what anti-virus software stops them.
