To reiterate, if 1 person out of 1024 people flips heads 11 times in a row, that doesn't indicate that they have a weighted coin. That is an entirely expected outcome consistent with a 50% probability of getting heads or tails on any given flip.

Baldur's Gate 3 has sold over 1 million copies. Do you think out of 1 million people it would be expected or unexpected that one of them would roll low 9 times in a row?

this is a good example

I would like to see the function used and generate like 10000s of results to analyse..

but I cant imagine me rolling dice and relaoding the game.. what is a good method of gathering dice rolls?
