Do dice towers help with randomization?

For my own part, I have always felt Dice towers helped with randomization.  At a bare minimum they prevented player manipulation (I knew a few folks in college that rolled really well, above average in fact, until the introduction of a dice tower) and I suspected the abrupt stop of the dice prevented them from rolling till they found their center of gravity…which if they were off-balance… would lead to skewed rolls.

 

Someone did a chi-square test on a variety of dice (Chessex, Wiz Dice, Gamescience and Chinese-cheapo’s) and posted the results to YouTube.     Chi-Square Testing of Multiple Dice
