I do so love these machine vs. man situations. I'd be more inclined to believe that I'd lose since it only gets better at predictions as more people play it.

I did better the 2nd time. No,
I didn't do 40 of them and pick
the one that wins. You can see
I had 3 winning streaks. It expects
you to switch around a lot, it
doesn't anticipate you'll stick
to a certain pattern at first.

At 30 I was at 70% but it started
to catch on and by 50 I was at
56%.

Not really, if you understand how random
works. I play
roulette and can think more randomly
than it can.

I love this game.

I figured out a strategy I think beats it without outside help. Make one choice, then take a break to surf somewhere else on the internet. Then make two choices. Then take a break. Make three choices and take a break. Etc up to 10 choices. Then do the same thing from 10 down to 1. That's 110 selections and I was able to beat it twice in a row. First time only $0.45. Second time for $6.85 (winning 52%) by alternating which hand I used to press keys and trying really hard think randomly

It's the opposite of roulette. There you
have to figure out where the wheel
will stop next. In this game, you have
to guess what it thinks your next
move will be and choose the opposite.

And if you play too long you'll never
beat it. I just do 50 and refresh the page.

That is not the only way to win. Making random selections will beat the game. Non-random selections will almost always eventually lose.

Making random selections would beat it indefinitely

Not sure if anyone else has done this ... but here is a start:

RRRRRRLRRRLRLRLLRRRRLLRRL

25 wrong guesses by the bot should be the result.

I can get 100% for N spins, but the algorithm I'm using is N^2 complexity.

I am not sure why it is the least bit interesting beyond figuring out an optimal strategy.
