Setting Random to 'Yes'  will result in the amount of results set with

Through the admin:
- 'Content' (top navigation)
- index.html
- components (sub navigation)
- Component cross ->  change Random order?  To Yes
- Component cross ->  change number of selections to your value
  Probably you want to change number of columns to the same number
