i mean if the same algorithm is applied each time that would lend an element of predictability to the results.

The mechanical process is the same but there is a randomizing element involved. For example, Card A will not always be placed in Slot B. The RNG will put Card A in a different slot each time. The exact location of each card will be randomized within the limits of the machine. Without knowling those limitations we cannot predict the location of any cards.
