Hell I saw a guy open 3 wells class ships 3 boxes in a row. If the number generator is operating properly what are the odds of that?
I remember back in the old days, random number have to be "seed" which can be anything, the computer will "randomly" generate a number from that (from a range)

I'm sure coding has gotten a lot more sophisticated and can come pretty close in generating number.

BUT......

since it is "random" then it is a chance a person could get 3 ships in a row, the only way to "break that pattern" is to keep track and only generate a win after x tries (which then it is not as random isn't it?)
