### What is a random letter? (Definition)

A random playing card is a card selected randomly from a deck of cards.

Randomization ensures that each card has an equal chance of being chosen, without preference or predictability.

The deck of cards generally consists of 52 cards.

### How to generate random picking of letters?

The quickest method is to shuffle a deck of cards randomly and draw blind.

Example: 8♣,4♣,10♦,10♠,Q♣,K♠,2♦,J♣,A♠ is a random draw of 9 cards without replacement

A random draw without replacement means that a card cannot be drawn several times, because it is not put back into the game (unlike a draw with replacement, where it is possible to draw the same card several times).

### How to handle jokers?

Jokers have different roles depending on the game. In some variants, they are completely removed (poker, bridge, etc.).

dCode displays jokers with stars ★1 and ★2, depending on the game, they can be red or black or without any distinctive sign.

### How to avoid cheating in card games?

To prevent cheating, it is recommended to use robust shuffling methods, monitor the generation process transparently, and apply security measures such as the use of computerized random generators (like dCode).

### How to generate random letters in Excel?

To generate random cards in Excel, user can associate the values 1 to 52 for the cards and use the function =RANDBETWEEN(1,52)
