Since the people you meet can be cool, awesome, weird, boring, crazy, socially inept dudes and chicks, charismatic guys and girls or a whole range of other things, you get lots of different experiences. The experience is never the same, irregular and based on your chance of the moment, or your fate. This is where the roulette part in chat-roulette comes from. Those are the reasons why this type of chat is also called a stranger chat or one-on-one chat. Because of the popularity of a recently launched website called Chat roulette, it is often referred to as a Chatroulette-clone or a Chatroulette alternative, even though chat-roulette wasn't the first website to come up with such an idea. Actually websites like Omegle already had the idea to let you meet people you didn't know from everywhere in the world. The only difference was that it was a text only chat and that you couldn't use a web cam or see your partners. The anonymous chat Omegle has changed since then and it has added a web cam chat (also called random video chat system) to appeal to the masses.
