I found a procedure:

That seems to be an experiment in how many stack errors and
fundamental flaws can be packed in a single definition. Where
did you find that?

Adding some swaps and fixing the 32/64 incompatibility may fix
this shiftregister based algorithm, but better throw it away

By reading the coding it is obvious that when the 'register'
encounters a zero it will stick there. In this case you didn't
execute randomize, so it sticks right away.

I think Gforth has random ( u1 -- u2 ), and 2 CHOOSE should
work for a 1/0 sequence (or 2 choose invert).
