How Gambling Machines Work

TOP How Gambling Machines Work
It All Comes Down to Chance and Randomness
WYSIWYG

Chance

Playing on a gambling machine is playing a game of chance. There are often many millions of different possible outcomes of a game. The chances of getting a particular prize outcome may vary significantly for each game. Not all games or machines have the same number of possible outcomes.

One essential element that all machines (non-skill based games) share is the outcome is determined by CHANCE ONLY. CHANCE ONLY determines the outcome of any game, there is no play method or pattern that effects whether a game is winning or losing. Also, because outcomes are CHANCE ONLY, machines do not adjust to a string of winning or losing games causing them to be "due" for a win/loss. CHANCE ONLY means that it is not possible to predict the outcome of the next game.

 

Randomness

Modern gaming machines use computer technology to operate their functions. Slot machine outcomes are determined unsing a Random Number Generator (RNG) which is a mathematically-based program that selects groups of numbers to determine which symbols are selected to produce a winning or losing outcome. Each symbol is chosen randomly and the selection of that symbol is not influenced by outside factors like previous outcomes of winning/losing history.

Video Lottery Games are linked to a Centralized System maintained by the Gaming Commission that tracks all information specific to the game, including its payout rate and win rate. The outcome of the game is determined the second you hit the Play button.

In either case, results are unpredictable no matter how many games have been played, how many wins or losses have occurred, the speed at which a game is played, the bet amount or type, etc.
