Answers to Questions

How to generate random picking of letters?

The principle of picking random letters is trivial, there are 26 letters in the alphabet (between A and Z), and the computer pick one or more of them randomly (random selection algorithm).

Example: A, B, or C has 1 chance out of 26 of being picked

The draw with replacement means that it is possible to draw the same letter multiple times.

For more options see the page : random selection.

How to generate random picking of letters for games?

Check the option Prefer the most used letters

In practice, randomly selection of a letter in the English language has the bias to provide the letter E more than the letter J for example. This is also the case for letter games (Scrabble tiles, Boggle dice, Longest Word, Scattegories/Categories wheel etc.)

dCode offers the option of drawing letters proportionally to their frequency in the English language as well as being able to choose consonants or vowels.
