Slots : Online Slot Machine Myths Related to Random Number Generator

By Andrea Klein

Level: May 16th 2007
There are a lot of online slot machines myths. But the most common of them are related to Random Number Generator. In the following lines, I’ll try to clarify the uncertainties and mysteries that circulate around the slot machines.
  1. You just left the machine and someone hit a jackpot. If only you have played a little bit more it would have been yours.
    Don’t be upset. Regarding online slot machines, the RNG is calculating the numbers without stopping. It is almost impossible to play the same combination as the winner. You think you‘re James Bond? You believe you would have pressed play at the exact microsecond and marked the same winning combination? Neither you nor the other player could have press play so accurately to win a jackpot. A second has 1000 microseconds and humanly speaking who can number them? Maybe a sophisticated device would have done this. So, don’t waste your forces hating the one who just won. Just keep your adrenaline for playing another game.

  2. The symbols on the wheel can tell you the odds of winning
    The RNG compute a number for each spin. The number has an equivalent in the symbols of the Reel. So for each symbol you see there are hundreds of virtual stops possibilities. Have you ever wondered how the slot machines can offer such amazing jackpots? Well, the RNG is the tricky part. It can generate millions of combinations and as a consequence the chances of hitting jackpots are rare. You cannot see the virtual stops that can be more than 100 hundred per reel. In this case the chances to win a jackpot are 1:1,000,000. That’s why you would follow a bad road if you calculate the odds of the reels you see.

  3. Casinos Can Vary the Percentage of Payouts
    That’s not true. Only the computer chip can determine the online payouts and therefore the pay back percentage. The payouts are fixed before and can’t be changed. If a casino intends to change the payouts it has to change the chip. Moreover, there are rules and laws set by online gaming regulators to prevent this. Anyway, you won’t see a casino who wants to change the house edge. This is their profit. Before playing, just check the payback to assure you it’s a good choice. All the online slot machines with a payout smaller than 5% should be played.

  4. If the Jackpot hasn’t appeared for a while here is your luck
    Who guarantee you this? The next spin is not related to the previous spin. So, don’t waste all your money and your life waiting for a jackpot. It may not appear. There is a certain payoff percentage the online slot machines keeps through paying smaller wins.
