A '''pseudo-random number generator''' is an electronic device or software's attempt at creating a random number. ComputersJust areas notrolling designeda todice beis not 'random,' (being determined by factors such as force and cannotangle yetof the throw, as well as friction), computers cannot be truly 'random' on their own. In order to generate 'random' events in games and other forms of software, they must get as close to looking it as they can. There are limitless ways of accomplishing this. The degree of apparent randomness depends on the ability to predict the next result of the algorithm.
