Just like counting cards, you can see the order in which the symbols are placed on each wheel. You can also calculate your odds of winning.
Why is the RNG creating random numbers? The program will pick the most recent “set” of generated numbers when you press play. Each number in the “set”, is one of the symbols displayed on the reels. Three reels equal three numbers. The RNG knows where the reels will stop before they spin.
It would be very convenient if you could see the outcome of each spin and then calculate the odds that the next spin will go through the same sequence of spins. But unfortunately, there is no set sequence between spins of the slot machine, unlike at a real-world roulette table, where the croupier grabs the ball and turns it again. Instead, the machine calculates hundreds, if not thousands, of spins and virtual stops every second you pause between each play. This means there are millions upon millions of combinations that you can win or lose each minute. This is how casino slots can create a large enough margin to pay out just a few really big jackpots.
If you’ve been playing online slots for a while and haven’t won a lot of money, a jackpot is on the horizon!
It would be so easy to live a predictable life! You will soon realize that every spin of the virtual wheels is random. Every spin of the virtual wheel is independent of the previous spin. (Unless you can press play every 1/1000th of a second). You can have one spin, a thousand spins, or nothing. You are not likely to! You have the same chance to hit a winning combination. You might be lucky enough to play that slot machine and find one machine from hundreds that payout the jackpot. It is statistically unlikely that you’ll win on any of the machines. A machine that does not pay out a huge jackpot does not necessarily mean it won’t pay its usual percentage of smaller wins.
Myths can have a whole life of their own. Unfortunately, most myths are false. However, I heard the story of someone who was playing slot machines and pulled out when he felt he could do something with his winnings. . . Let’s just say that it wasn’t an organ of the human body. You can try your luck against the RNG. You will see the end of the world of mathematics one day. If that happens, you’ll want to play a machine and win the jackpot every time you hit play.
