Checking for multiple solutions is tough, the way the solver on this site deals with it is by not using guessing during the solving process. If a puzzle has multiple solutions, it won't find any of them.

Does this mean that the solver uses pure logic to find the solutions to all the Kakuro puzzles. It does not use brute force for solving. If you use brute force to solve the kakuro then you have to check for all possible combinations to find multiple solutions
