Didn't believe it, but it appears to be true (updated)

It does appear that the dice are not random. But the program has tendencies that can be exploited. The bad: it appears the computer gets multiple doubles early in the game WAY too often...and multiple doubles WAY too often when you have a man on the bar. You will not see those opportunities. It gets in from the bar at a higher rate than you. And if you're thinking, "he can only get me with a 6-4," guess what happens WAY too often? Finally, even your "good" rolls seem to always occur at a time when executing them puts you at a disadvantage. The good: the computer tends to leave its back markers in place too long. Also, it tends to play safe. The overall impression is of a modestly skilled player relying on better rolls to prevail. You can learn to use this against it. Even if accurate, the "Are The Dice Random" feature does not reflect the situations in which they occur.

Not for the beginner

The problem with this game is that it forces you to play at an advanced level after just a few hundred games. Then the dice throws are not random but constantly give many more doubles rolls to the robot so that it becomes impossible to advance beyond about 1,700 points.

This game blatantly cheats, at least on the most difficult setting. Switching the dice mode results in actual randomization for a few games, but will then return to what is obviously a built in system of controlled dice rolls. This behavior manifests in statistically unlikely bias in favor of the computer, such as greater frequency of rolls that get checkers off the bar despite a single open point, and rolls that allow the computer to hit your blots without exposing it's own blots. Very frustrating for advanced play.

Very challenging for a beginner, but very helpful in learning

Carnival Game

Since they can't teach a Computer strategy or intuition, they make it challenging by giving the Computer a bunch of doubles at the end of the game. Three double sixes in a row does not happen in the real world. Guess this is the best they can do.

The dice are not random. The phone seldom will stay stuck on the bar even if 5 points are covered. The player loses multiple turns even if only two points are covered. The phone often gets the exact roll to bump the only uncovered piece. The information about the randomness on the website is clearly written by somebody who barely understands basic math much less probability. The rating system seems messed up as well. More cheat, cheat cheat. There is no way the roll isn't rigged!

It is possible to beat the hard level with overly cautious play, but some of the doc roles made by the opponent strain credulity and do not represent realistic match play. While I appreciate the authors attempt with stats to convince us the doc are random, I,d like to see the stats on how often the computer gets the number it needs to knock out your exposed piece. Consider that a challenge. Until then only three stars. It has actually improved my game.
