You pick a two digit number, add the digits and subtract the result from the original number. Then look up the symbol for that number on the chart and click on the crystal ball. The symbol you looked up will appear.

Now I know there has to be a simple explanation for this. Anybody want to come up with it for me?

OK, I could understand that if I always found the same symbol. But I did it three times, found three different symbols and the ball popped up with the correct symbol each time.

Yes, the symbols and the numbers next to them refresh/rearrange themselves each time you come back to the page... but they still follow a pattern and the principle remains the same.

Take the example given at the bottom of the page... 23 minus 5 = 18... that's a multiple of 9, right? Look at all the multiples of 9 on the page and see what symbol is next to each (you can ignore the higher numbers above 81 as you'll never arrive at one of those). Notice a trend? Refresh the page and look at all the multiples of 9 again.

That's all down to the programming script... it always throws out whichever symbol is next to each multiple of 9.
