If I handed you a set of dice, told you that it was ‘possible’ for you to roll snake eyes thirteen times in a row and then wanted you to make bets with other people; how many of those people do you think would win the bet?; and how often do you think you would win?
What is it about this process described in the article that seems to you even remotely similar to snake eyes 13 times in a row:

Instead of making the starting chemicals form a sugar and a base, they mixed them in a different order, in which the chemicals naturally formed a compound that is half-sugar and half-base. When another half-sugar and half-base are added, the RNA nucleotide called ribocytidine phosphate emerges.
More details are available from the article.
