Slot Machine Winning Strategies
First, and most importantly, gambling is a risk. Nothing is ever guaranteed. There are no set ways to win, only guidelines that can be followed. Here is some information that may help increase your chances of winning at slots and will definitely increase your play time, your enjoyment and your understanding!
A common misconception is that casino slot machines are not actually computers themselves. The same software used in online slot machines is also used in casino slot machines. So, real slot machines, as well as online ones, are very digital. An online slot is no more calculated than a real slot, as the software is the same and the looseness of the slot is always a calculated number. Online slot machines can be stacked against you, but the same can be said for land based slots machines.
Specifically, a slot machine contains a computer with a random number generator, or RNG, on a chip. The numbers given out by the RNG determine where the reels stop. The RNG never stops working, even when the machine is idle. It keeps generating numbers, thousands of them a second, even when the machine appears to be idle. So, essentially, the result you receive from a slot machine is highly time sensitive. A pull of the handle a single millisecond later, and something totally different happens. Therefore, inserting three coins in the machine instead of one would have change the timing, and the symbols you received from putting in one coin would not have turned up if you had inserted three coins, simply because of the time difference. If I slot machine produces a winning combination, the winning combination exists inside of the slot's random number generator for only a tiny fraction of a second.
The best thing to remember is that a slot machine's payout is completely random. There is no way to predict it. While they do work on random number generators, which rely on mathematical sequences, the sequences are very long and complex. Even if you were able to figure those out, your game would have to be timed to the millisecond since the RNGs run continuously, hence making predicting the numbers rather impossible. When playing a slot machine, each pull of the handle (or, for our purposes, click of the spin button) gives you just as much chance as winning as the previous click. Ten clicks gives you the same odds of winning as one click. The machine has no memory and does not know how many times you have played, or when its last payout was. It is entirely random. It isn't more likely to pay after a win, nor it is more likely to pay if it hasn't paid out in a while.
