    I am brand new at this and would appreciate your answer about a question I have:
    Are there any differences in the software used to generate the numbers when you are playing for "fun" vs. playing for "real" money?

    No except if the casino is dodgy.Stick with the reputable ones.

    I'm afraid often there is a difference. And it surely exists if you play "Fun" mode offline.

    Where and from which software provider?

    If you are going to make an accusation as such, you need to back it up with specifics. In my experience, I have not seen a difference in "play for real" or "fun" mode with the major suppliers. I am curious where you have noticed this.

    I don't think any accusation was made.
    The response, I think, was about playing a casino in fun mode 'offline'.

    If the software offers an 'offline' fun play - then its not going to be using its RNG as it would be if playing online - and therefore the results will be based on a local RNG (probably downloaded to the user's PC)

    I think!

    Offline RNG

    I would expect an offline RNG to be less random simply because it will be simpler in construction. It will have to be seeded locally, and you will be playing each random number event in sequence, so any patterns will soon become obvious as a 'gut feeling'. Also it is for 'fun', so the need for a robust RNG is much less. If you were around in 70's like I was, our school had a 'table of random numbers' that we used in all experiments that needed a series of random numbers. It was a case of open the table and start at any point you fancy, and read off the numbers. This is how the cheap & cheerful RNGs work. The numbers appear random, but given the same starting point will be exactly repeatable. It would be like seeing the first 10 hands of Blackjack, and being able to work out where in the table you were, and being able to predict the next n hands in the session. Casino RNGs are light years ahead of this though, even though, I often still get the 'gut feeling' that they run sequences of 'bad' or 'good' draws in any game. I am not sure at what point the output from a RNG can be considered biased. As it is all down to probability, no-one can say that a sequence is definitely 'rigged', or shows bias, only that there is an x% probability that a bias exists. The only way to tell is play a large number of games 'for fun' and then 'for real' and see if there is a different experience.
