Of all the many types of slot machines that exist, behind the exquisite graphics and entertaining sounds, they are all pretty much the same. Each one has reels featuring the same type of symbols, and each one is run by a computer chip known as a random number generator. The random number generator is the mind of the computer that determines what symbols will be selected and what the winnings will be upon a win. There is a myth that says the casino can tamper with the number generators.
However, it is just that; a myth. The generators are preset at the factory, so never fall for the lie that casinos fix them to keep you from winning large amounts. There are, however, ways that casinos profit from your game play. It should be no surprise that casino companies gain much more money than they give. After all, any ordinary person who is not keen on slot machines will probably pay and play, and end up losing way more money than they won.
Unfortunately, there are no guaranteed wins when it comes to slot machines. But there are certain techniques that will improve your experience, thus increasing your chances of winning. The most important thing to remember is that every spin is completely random. If you play one machine that earned you a win, and another machine that cost you, it does not make one “hot” and the other “cold”; it’s only due to chance. Keeping this fact in mind can lessen the likelihood of you placing compulsive wages and bets.
Also, when you are using a virtual electronic slot machine, the spinning reels you will see are only for the effect and entertainment. The very second you pull the lever, or press the button, the random number generator has already decided what the outcome will be. Some people will rub the screen thinking they can influence the reels to make a winning stop, but this is not the case. If you have ever visited an actual casino, you should have noticed that there are no windows or clocks, but there are several places to eat. This is no coincidence. Everything regarding a casino has been strategically set up in a way to keep you playing as long as they can. They do not want to you to look at the clock or outside at the sky and see you have been playing for too long, but they will provide you with food so you don’t have to leave the area to eat.
You may have also noticed that they will broadcast giant pictures of big winners, but never address the fact that there are losers. Even the positions the game machines are set up and placed are done so for a reason; everything is meant to appeal to the player and winning money.
Now that the above information is out of the way, there are in fact some ways that you can increase your winning chances. Since every slot machine is different, you can search for the machines that feature loose slots. These are slots that casinos can advertise. Besides giving you a better chance of winning, they promote excitement amongst other players in the casino when they see that you have won. Like the other things mentioned, machines with loose slots are placed where the most number of people gather, such as near lobbies or at the very end of the row.
