    This is a topic that interests me. Parapsychologists claim that they find evidence of psi in experiments with many trials, but some of these studies have been criticized for their reliance on pseudo-random number generators.
    i do not frequent casinos, but I have been told that slot-machines are now played on computers. I looked online and it seems that these slot machines use pseudo-random number generators. Leading me to wonder if some very clever data scientist could figure out a system to crack these machines.
