How to Play Slots Responsibly


Being around the slots may seem simple and a way of having fun. As one goes on and on playing you will see that there is a lot that the average person misses. They can also become hypnotizing so getting up and going for a little walk is good. Don’t worry about missing the “big one”.

Many players do not realize that slot machines are made to operate on random number generators. What these are is microchips that compute random numbers that determine the outcome of each spin. Computer software companies that are tasked with the programming of the reels make them stop in certain combinations. This makes a player look as though he or she has just missed the jackpot. There is no such thing as a machine being due for a win.

The result of each spin is determined the second that a player presses the button to spin. Even just a nano second later the spin outcome is programmed to be quite different. So don’t kill yourself for getting up from a machine and the next person hits a jackpot. It’s possible that your “press” would not have happened at the exact time as the guy who sat down.

An important fact to that one should keep in mind when playing the slots is the RNG (random number generation) factor. RNG software is put into most modern of the slots machines. This software is well capable of spitting out over a hundred random numbers each second. As and when a player hits the spin button the computer simply locks into a series of RNG numbers, at a split of a second or less it will tell the reels when to stop spinning. You cannot read the slots.

This would mean that the previous player and the jackpot winner must have had to do the identical actions down to the very last millisecond, for them both to have hit the buttons at the identical time to make the slot jackpot spin sequence.

Don’t believe that slot machines at the end of rows are programmed to hit the jackpot more often than others. Machines can vary in the pay backs but it’s impossible to programme the machines to hit more often than others.

Playing the slots is all about having fun and enjoying the glitz and the glamour. Don’t spoil the fun and use every last coin that you’ve earned – it’s just not worth it. More often the machines will swallow all your money than give any back.
