If it can be proven that playing the same does improve your odds then it is not truly random. Some people that write randomizing software will put shortcuts in (sometimes for their own advantage) but this often discovered fairly quickly upon looking at the source code.
Also, using the allotted daily clicks shouldnt really classify as a "tip". I am not trying to be mean or rude but much like any similar game of chance the more plays increases chances of winning. Like a roulette wheel. If i play one number I have approximately a 1 in 36 chance of winning (I say approximate because if you are in Monaco or Sofia they do not have double zeros on their wheels). But if I play two numbers i now have a 1 in 18 chance of winning (2/36)
Lets say that the code/script for the game is not perfectly random. And you happen to get a prize. Since the clicks are free then to test this the person might want to play the same time as they won the prize every, and clicking the squares. Then, if the person wins again in the future with the same square and same prize then you can begin to reverse engineer the algorithm. As a matter of fact, if a large enough group of people got together here, agreed to play the same squares at the same time for an extended period, it could be tested faster. And if it actually wasnt random at all then they could figure out where the prize is going to be at any given time. Eventually significantly increasing their odds.
So, who is in? Who wants to break the ClixGrid?
The main point of this topic is to allow members to realize there is not a little man behind squares
turning them over. Believe it or not, some people do tend to think that way or similar. Point being
it's very simple and not much different than any random game there is. Some people tend to be
luckier than others at winning but that could also be due to them playing consistently, all their plays
Personally, I don't see why anyone would want to bother making a big deal out of it. It's a great way
to bring in more advertisers. You see, it's NOT just about members winning, it's about them making
more money clicking ads. Because of course, some times people purchase clixgrid and then decide to
purchase ad hits/visits. It's common sense.
Only recently has the big win gone to ten dollars. Most winnings are a dime. I'm not making light of
that because it all adds up. I'm just saying I don't know why anyone would want to make a huge deal
out of the clixgrid script or as you say, trying to break the grid....what kind of sense does that make? Do
you really want to destroy the clixgrid, have admins get rid of it?
