The Random Generator is now available. It’s been around since the 1980s when casinos realized that more people were playing slots than table games. It’s a chip embedded in all casino machines worldwide. The chip allows the units to roam at a rate of thousands per second through random number combinations. These can be mapped to particular outcomes.
Players’ Slot Scenario
You’ve probably been there if you are a serious slot player. If you feel frustrated and want to quit playing, tell a waiter. It’s not hitting. The patron continues to play. As you walk away, you cannot resist looking at the screen again. JACKPOT! JACKPOT! One lucky player sees the credit meter reach $1,000. Swedish casino, “I should have won.” “If I could only play one more time!”
Your $20 was lost. The good news is that you wouldn’t have won anyway. Here’s the reason: In the extra time it took you to get up, the other patron had to sit down, insert some money, and press spin. Millions upon millions of numbers were being drawn, combing through various outcomes. The Random number generator will continue to choose a display until it is pressed. It is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a calendar. Even if the machine isn’t in play, jackpots can occur anytime.
The reels spin to entertain you. The machine knows exactly where it will stop. Each spin is independent of the previous one. They do not affect each other.
The chip generates random numbers. Although a computer is fast, it does not have intelligence. It is called pseudo-random in the industry. It is also known as pseudo-random. The seeds are constantly changing.
Tight and Loose Machines
The terms loose and tight refer to payback percentages made at the factory at the casino’s request. Depending on the jurisdiction, these percentages can vary from 85% to 98%. The house usually takes between 2% & 15%. The casino’s hold on smaller denomination machines like pennies, quarters, and nickels is typically higher. Only the manufacturer can set and change the payback percentages.
Casinos cannot alter payback percentages at will, contrary to popular belief. Strict jurisdiction laws also prohibit this. You can find a machine with a 98% return. It will return 98% every hour until the casino removes it.
Popular penny machines offer a return of around 85%. A house edge of 15% is therefore possible. A max bet of $3 to $4 on these machines will yield less over time than higher denomination machines like dollars which can return up to 98%. The penny units offer attractive bonus features. However, it is worth considering playing higher denomination machines such as dollars which can return more excellent to players over the long term.
Another tip. A bank of machines may have one sign that claims a 98% return. However, not all machines in the bank will return 98%. One or two machines may be more than 12 in a bank. You can play that one if the machine has a 98% return tag. GOOD LUCK.
