Easy... you follow the model of the Nevada Gaming Commission.
Anyone running any gaming machines (slots, poker, etc.) leaves their
source and binaries in escrow, and guarantees in writing ahead of time
that specific machines are running specific sets of code.
The nice gentlemen from the NGC have the power to walk into any gaming
site (Casino, etc.) at any time they choose, pick up a machine
physically, and walk away with it.
If their subsequent investigations discover any issues with the physical
structure of the machine or the code found to be installed on it, you
will lose your license and/or be subject to massive fines and/or jail.
