Since even the most basic computer random number generators are good enough to fool the naked eye, and coupling that with the fact that a user adds additional randomness to the process wheter a real RNG is used or not is not really the point, the 20% rate ,if it is true, should be noticebale even if they use a deterministic, every fifth request to the server results in a succes, model.
