This is a game that asks the user to simply choose left or right on the keyboard.

https://www.expunctis.com/2019/03/07/Not-so-random.html

If the AI guesses correctly, it deducts $1. If the guess is incorrect, it awards you $1.05.

The game, of course, is impossible to beat without help from an outside randomizer.

However, I just did 500 decisions using physical dice and the AI still got 270 correct guesses. The chances of the AI doing this well randomly are only 4 percent. So either my dice rolling is flawed or perhaps the AI is cheating?

Not really, if you understand how random
works. I did 50 and got 54% correct. I play
roulette and can think more randomly
than it can. Could be just dumb luck.
Lets see how lucky others are.

Bob, that isn't bad, but 50 flips aren't enough. Without using outside help, it will probably beat you as you get up to 100-200 flips.

Why. It's too much work, I have to
think about every selection, it takes
too long. It took me over 10 min to
do 50.

I was ahead after 350 flips, then decidedly down after 500. Years ago I played a paper, rocks, scissor game that was similar. Let me find the link.

The race is not always to the swift, nor the battle to the strong; but that is the way to bet.

Also, that was the only one I did.
I posted it 15 min after you started
the thread, and about 12 min after
I started the test. If I do any more
I'll be accused of cherry picking the
lucky ones. I've been down this
road before.

Nice, yes, similar concept.

The first 50 are going to be the most
accurate of your ability. It starts to
learn your patterns and play against
you after that, and there's no way
you could beat it. It's a rigged game.
