I havent been coding long but i got this to work Its pretty simple im not sure what can be changed, If anyone can tell me better ways of coding it and why there better that would help me alot. Sometimes a banner doesnt show up, Can someone tell me why this is aswell?
First off, it's not too bad. At least you're using switch logic and not if. That usually takes people more time to learn.

It's good practice not to name variables the same as a php function, ie: rand and $rand.
$rand = (rand()%4);
That line is going to return 4 numbers, 0-3. One thing you'll need to get used to is that a lot of things with programming start with 0 rather than 1. That's why you're getting a blank every once in a while because you have 0 being included in there and it's not being taken care of in the switch logic. So with that being said, change %4 to %3 and use numbers 0-2 rather than 1-3.
Kind of changing what I said before, but you could use just rand and not do that line you had before.
So do: rand(1,3)
This would return numbers 1-3 not 0-2 like I mentioned above.
You don't need that variable. Just put rand(1,3) in the switch statement.
Let me know if you need any furthre explaination! :)
That is great, i didnt know i could simplify it anymore cheers for that, This will help me out alot, and i wasnt to sure about the blank page but you cleaned that up as well cheers, Im Making a minature bank script at the moment, I will post that up here when i am done. Its simple but could be fun.
