    :p Why don’t you just say “I don’t know what an algorithm is or I don’t know how to define one”?
    Tell the truth Asshole instead of hiding behind your flippant comedy.

    For this discussion, it doesn’t even matter what a algorithm is. We are not talking about how the number is generated, but rather, what can be done with the number after it’s generated. You are just trying to make yourself look smart, and let’s face it, you ain’t that smart. Anybody can google up a piece of information. ”algorithm” “chi square” FU. :cool:

    You obviously don’t know that an algorithm IS what will be done with the generated number.
    You’re thinking is messed up.

    Show us all an algorithm taking a generated number, and doing something with it.

    Is the generated number the point? Yes. Reject it and generate a new number. Then start over.
    Is the generated number a 7? Yes. Keep it.
    Is the generated number not a 7 and not the point?
    Keep it.
    This is better done with a flow chart if you’re coding.

    Anyone who does not believe in the trustworthiness of casinos will
    prefer a hand-dealt deck in Blackjack and ditto with a craps toss.
    If an algorithm were to alter the way cards/decks were shuffled in a
    shuffle machine or electronic BJ, or
    If a craps algo were to inject a seven at a casino-friendly moment, then

    there simply is no "easy" way to prove that there was such subterfuge.

    Hand dealt is no guarantee of honesty.

    I played a version of 'electronic dice' at New York racinos.

    Monticello closed down when the full scale Resorts World casino opened.

    Saratoga and Yonkers also had the game. Haven't been to those racinos in years.

    The game was low stakes and relatively fast, so was fun to play with no table craps option available.

    I believe the electronic game relies on a 'pseudo' random number generator. Meaning a computer algorithm determines the next 'dice roll'.

    Pseudo RNG's are close, but not completely random.

    Physical dice rolls are a true RNG.

    Yes physical dice rolls ARE a true RNG. IFF the dice are true. If you see something like, I don’t know, OPAQUE DICE, then red flags should be raised. There would have to be a reason. :cool:

    You have serious paranoia.

    I don’t think it’s “paranoia” Ma’am. Cation and vigilance should always be your companions, at a casino, especially an Indian casino where little or no oversight is generally the rule. If I tell people that I believe a game has problems, then you can bet that I have damned good reason to say it. :cool:

    I’m not talking about your casino visits or your opinions. I’m talking about your approach to life.
    Very paranoid.
    But on the good side: just because you’re paranoid does’t mean they’re not out to get you.

    I went down there Wednesday. Played about 5-6 hours I reckon. Was down as much as $1000 at one point. Ground back to down $257, and called it a day.

    Heading back down tomorrow. Should be there in the morning, till . . .

    Give it a shot, DeMango. I'll be the longhair wearing a black, long-sleeved, pocket tshirt with nothing on it (it's all I ever wear).

    All you ever wear? :confused: Most places these days won’t let you in, without a pair of pants. :) You must have “connections”.
