Fun and Games

My friend Debbie sent this along(thanks, Debbie!). I am not a mathematician so I cannot tell you how this works. If there is someone out there who can explain it to me, let me know. Will write more later. Am still trying to the stump the little rodent.
PS: I noticed that the symbols don't stay the same, changing from turn to turn.
I'm hopeful of an explanation from one of you brainiacs.

You always end up with a multiple of 9. And the multiples of 9 all have the same symbol.

Sorry to spoil the magic!

Every number that you could ever get, is a multiple of 9. Every symbol for the multiple of 9 is the same. The symbol that represents the number changes everytime.

Oh. Thank goodness. I knew there had to be a logical explanation. This was creeping me out. I refused to believe that the gopher was psychic.

I too was taken back by the possibility that this gopher was psychic.
