Random Number Service

A random number service that delivers true random numbers: random.org.

RANDOM.ORG offers true random numbers to anyone on the Internet. The randomness comes from atmospheric noise, which for many purposes is better than the pseudo-random number algorithms typically used in computer programs. People use RANDOM.ORG for holding draws, lotteries and sweepstakes, to drive games and gambling sites, for scientific applications and for art and music.

The site has quite a few features, including a coin flipper, dice roller, card shuffler, lottery picker, keno picker, and so on.
