Interestingly enough, I once read that a tip-off that a string of random numbers like coin tosses might not be real is if they appear “too” random.

Coin tosses will often produce unbalanced results in small samples, sometimes with string of heads or strings of tails showing up.

Only as sample sizes become larger do the probabilities become more apparent!
