it is not
possible to know the odds of winning a slot game by checking out the
number of symbols on each wheel. There were a large number of "wives
tales" and stories where heroes had been able to identify the odds
by calculating the number of symbols. For instance, a slot with
three wheels and 20 symbols in each reel would mean that the hit for
that device would be 1 in 8,000 spin. However, this is simply a
fallacy, as the RNG would pick up a random number.
want to play in a crowded casino. They feel that they have a greater
chance of hitting a jackpot. This is true because the number spins
per machine increases. If a slot hits a jackpot once in 1500 spins
roughly, it is likely to hit more when it spins more. If you were to
think that the casino organizers are behind the jackpot, you are
wrong. It is not easy to fool casinos too. Some swindlers try to
place fake coins or tokens. Previously, this was possible but now,
casinos have provided strong security policies, which do not allow
such cheating to occur. Many new players think that they can crumple
their fate by playing multiple slot games simultaneously. They also
speed up their moves to ensure that no chances are missed. Playing
multiple games in online poker can be one of the winning strategies.
In the early
days of slot machines calculating the odds of a game was very
simple. Unfortunately all modern slots are powered by a random
number generator and have weighted combinations which means you
cannot in any way work out the game odds. Many "Slot Systems" say
otherwise - they are wrong.
that were made prior to the random number generator was used can be
analyzed to find the odds of any single combination being hit. This
is due to the fact that all symbols have the same chance of
appearing on the pay line. You can simply count the number of
symbols on the reels and work it out from there.
For example lets
say you have a slot machine with three reels and on each reel there
are 15 symbols. This makes 3375 (15x15x15) different possible
combinations. Hence the chance of hitting the top jackpot would be 1
Back to modern
day slots. There are many slots systems for sale that still want you
to believe that casinos have antique slot machines on the floors.
While there are still spinning reel type slots they are NOT the same
as their antique relatives.
spinning reels have been left in place to give the illusion of the
original games, all modern day slots use RNG's so their odds cannot
be calculated. We can however tell you that in general the odds of
hitting the top jackpot on most land based casino slots is no better
than between 500,000 to 1 and 1,000,000 to 1.
Of course even
with these long odds many players hit big jackpots on a daily basis.
It all comes down to one thing - being in the right place at the
right time. Luck can strike at any moment when playing slots
