Slot machines must be a misunderstood device. You will find any number of “slot masters” and they will tell you the secret of winning. By the way, they are almost all wrong. You will also find many kind gamblers sitting in front of the machine and willing to give you advice. They are usually wrong too.
1-slotss will not change their odds to catch up after winning, and will not expire after consecutive cold runs.
If you want to play a slots, it is best to understand how the odds work. However, this will not help you win more often. But it may prevent you from making the wrong decision based on the wrong premise.
Let’s take a simple slot as an example. It has 3 rotatable reels, each with 8 symbols. These symbols are not weighted in any particular way-they each have a 1/8 probability of appearing in a given rotation.
2- The casino will not change the programming on theslots due to recent wins
Once you understand how slots really work mathematically, it’s easy to understand why the casino does not need to change programming. Remember, the casino doesn’t mind if you win. Winning is the math and advantage of the game.
3- Using your player club card will not affect your probability of winning or losing
You need to understand the motivation behind the player club card. The idea is that the casino will reward you with rebates and free food to motivate you to play slots more often. They do this by crediting 0.2% or 0.3% of your actions to your reward account.
These are all excellent reasons not to join the slots club. One of my best friends-one of the smartest gamblers I know-has never joined a slot club for these reasons.
4-slotss with jackpots are the worst game you can play.
How does this affect the return on investment in a practical sense? You must subtract the size of the jackpot from the payout, which makes your return percentage in real life much lower than in theory. Also, think about how the casino funds the jackpot. A small portion of each bet is added to the jackpot. This further reduces the return on investment.
5- You can’t really determine the location of the game based on their location in the casino.
The batting frequency is a measure of how often a spin wins a victory. The winning SIZE has nothing to do with the hit frequency. Some slots may have a hit frequency of 25%, others 33%, and some 50%. However, if a game often wins small, and the frequency of big wins is much lower, then in the long run, it can easily become a more expensive game than a game with a higher return percentage and a lower hit frequency.
6- You can’t make a living by playing slots.
Yes, you can’t live a better life by betting on slots, the random number generator loops one number at a time. But the program loops through thousands of numbers every second. When you press the spin button on the slot, it will immediately stop at that number. The rotation of the reels is just for display.
7- Playing Max Coins is not always the best strategy .
When playing video poker, you must always bet 5 coins-the maximum bet per hand. That’s because the jackpot on video poker machines is higher. If you bet 1, 2, 3 or 4 coins, you will get a royal flush of 250 to 1 or 200 to 1.
