The Odds Work
|Video slot machines can have anywhere from 20 to
100 symbols on each virtual reel. Of course the higher paying
symbols will appear less than the lower paying ones.
For example if we have a game with 40 stops per reel and the
jackpot symbol occurs only once per reel then the odds of hitting
the highest prize is 1 in 102,400,000.
As with most video slots you can play more than one line at
a time so the example above would be 1 in 5,120,000 if you were
playing 20 lines at once.
Through extensive mathematical testing the slot machine manufacturers
can see how their reel placement will control the overall pay
out percentage of the game.
|Every spin you make on a video slot is in no way
related or effected by the last. Each spin has exactly the same
odds of winning.
It is quite possible although unlikely that you could hit the
top jackpot two spins in a row. For this reason it does not
matter if you play a game that has just paid out or a game that
has not paid out for a week.
Another point worth noting is that the symbols positions on
the virtual reels never change. They a permanently placed to
ensure the correct payout percentage.
There are a lot of systems for sale that claim to be able to
beat slot machines. They are all useless, there is no way to
predict or beat a randomly generated outcome.
