Hi guys i’m a newbie programmer wannabe, what i am about to ask could sound a bit stupid, but that’s why i’m posting it in general section
I’m trying to make my own basic slot machine after reading an article about Alex, a hacker who found a way to ‘win’ against slot machine (You can find the whole story on Wired magazine)
And my question is about basic programming; i read that slot’s technology is based on an RNG. I have questions about this:
- I saw that there are several types of sources that an RNG can use to give a result (static noise, transistor distortion, computational, etc); so first one question is: which is the difference? like, if possible, should i prefer one to one another in my case of application?
- Advices on the actual RNG software i should download?
- I saw many people talking about RNG or PRNG; i cannot understand the difference between them, since in someone’s opinion, choosing one or the other is really important. I’d like to know whether it’s better to use a PRNG or a regular RNG, if you are trying to program your own video slot machine. Actually i don’t even have clearly understood the difference between the two since, in guides i’m looking at they always talk about RNG, but here, which was my first source when i first knew the story of this aforementioned Alex, there are PRNG. so i’m pretty confused
Thank you very much guys <3
