Summary 03566: kiwame: [possible] Broken RNG?
Description This is a lovely game, except for the apparently busted RNG.

Attached is a ZIP file of screenshots from two play sessions of this game. Screenshots 0000 through 0009 are from the first session, 0010 through 0020 are from the second.

What is up with the dora indicator being 5 Craks so often? And what are the odds of me geting the same starting hand twice (see 0018 and 0020)?

Combinations of starting hand for Oya are 326,520,504,500 and Ko are 98,521,596,000.
Usually it is impossible to start with the same hand twice ;)

Might be correct behaviour, most Arcade mahjongs have preset "games"
