The following are the most common question we get asked regarding video slots. If you have a question which is not answered below then please
. We aim to answer all questions within 24 hours. We may add your question to the list below so please let us know if you prefer that we do not.
Are the outcomes really random?
Yes, every spin is totally random and in no way effected by
the amount of money you put in, the amount of your bet or the
time between jackpot hits.
Are the symbols weighted like on three reel slots?
In general no. Because video slots have virtual reels they have
no need to weight the individual symbols they just add fewer
of the highest paying ones and more of the lowest to the virtual
reel which can contain anywhere from 10 to hundreds of symbols.
Is there an advantage to playing the higher denomination
Yes, this is true for all types of slot machines. The higher
the coin size the lower the percentage of the spin that the
casino needs to keep. For this reason penny slots tend to have
the worst pay out percentages in the casinos.
Where can I buy a video slot for my home?
We cannot recommend any particular company as we have never
bought a game for home use. In many states it is illegal to
own one. Also See : Buying

If the machine feels hot does this mean it's near a
No, a hot machine indicates only that the lights inside the
machine have heated up the pay table or the metals of the game.
It has no relation to anything on the reels.
Is the gamble feature a good bet?
It's a great bet. In fact the red or black gamble on many video
slots has no house advantage at all, plus it is always a 50/50
bet so your odds of doubling up are not bad at all.
Can you recommend a good slot machine system?
No. There is no system to beat the modern day slot machine that
actually works. There are some people who use techniques to
win but these are generally illegal and they tend to end up
with a mug shot on the Nevada Gaming Commission web site.
How can you tell the pay out percentages?
As a player you cannot gauge the pay out percentages by playing.
If you are lucky you may get to see the pay out percentage when
a technician is working on a game. Knowing the pay out percentage
won't really help you win but of course going for the loosest
slots is good.
I've seen casinos advertising slots at 100% payout.
How can this be?
The problem with these advertisements is that they usually just
point you to a bank of slot machines where one may be set at
100%. Chances are you will never find it and even if you did
there is no guarantee that you would win in the short term.
