How do slots work and how are they arranged?
How do online slots work? Slot machines are the most popular casino games today. This is understandable: you don’t need to think, you don’t need to count, you don’t even need to memorize cards, because everything is simple, if you wish, even a monkey can be taught to play slots.
Many people start playing and do not even think about how these games work at all, because everything is usually very simple. Turning on the game, you can immediately see where the “spin” button is, where you can place a bet and where the pay table is located.
The pay table shows all possible combinations of symbols and their coefficients. With its help, you can easily determine the value of the symbol and the amount of winnings. Usually the paytable is at the bottom of the slot. Also, developers can indicate in this table the percentage of payouts and the total return of the slot.
Where does sound and animation come from?
Everything is quite simple, sounds and animations are loaded from the provider's server, as for online slots, absolutely all data is given by the software provider's server.
The random number generator in slots
Modern slot machines represent a huge flow of information. Combinations that drop out at the start of the reels are determined by a random number generator (RNG). It ensures the objectivity of the results. Simply put, the chances of winning do not depend on the phase of the moon, the weather outside, the totem animal, etc. This is just a myth, so the slot receives various winning or losing combinations from the RNG, which is located on the provider's server, and the number of winning or losing combinations depends on the Volatility and RTP.
People, once again! everything is determined by the Random Number Generator, so if during the game one of you begs the Almighty to give a bonus or dances with a tambourine in the hope of good luck, you can finish doing it, this does not affect the RNG.
Speaking of payout percentage, we mean RTP - return to player. The normal RTP is 95% -97%, with this percentage there is a chance to win something sometimes, if it is lower, then it makes no sense to play and change online casinos. Online casinos got the ability to regulate RTP, if you are not aware of this, read our other guides.
RTP is an indicator of how much money the machine will return to you. And the higher this indicator, the more likely it is that the slot will pay you. Many players believe that if a player makes a deposit of $100, he should get back $96 if the RTP is 96 percent. However!
In fact, it is calculated and calculated in a completely different way. Let's say we have a slot where the RTP is 95%, we have $100 on our balance, we bet $1 and press the spin 100 times, we should get back $95 for 100 hits at a distance, if we make 200 hits, we will already get back 90 $, the commission is taken not for the deposit, but for each spin in the slot.
The more spins you make, the more the casino takes away at a distance.
Are there fake slots?
Yes, they do exist and you need to keep in mind that if the software is not original, then the return percentage can be tweaked and you have no guarantees of winning. In general, as it turned out. As you can see, RTP is absolutely shit as a percentage! And it's legally documented. Having accepted all the rules, you will never be able to prove that you were deceived. When making a deposit at the first casino you meet, think twice!
Dispersion or Volatility.
Volatility, or dispersion, is the level of risk in a game. This is one of the most important characteristics that you should pay attention to if you are interested in how online casino games work.
What is the difference between online slots and offline slots?
The main difference between online slots and offline slots is that in the case of online games, the random number generator works from the provider's server, the RTP data is also located there, and in the case of offline games, the RTP data and the random number generator work inside the slot machine . An offline slot machine is just a computer.
Very often in the gambling zones there is a machine on which you can see the inscription that it is busy. This means that some player loaded money into this machine, played, and then asked to leave this machine for him. And at that moment he went home for money or to the bank.
The player thinks like this: “The machine is fully stacked and you need a little more for it to give money: either the game will end in a plus, or I will win back some of the money, or I will take mine.” It seems that there is logic in this, but it was not there!
One of the main differences between online and offline slots is that the random number generator on the Internet works based on the total numbers. In an online casino, it does not happen that you are fighting with a specific machine. In fact, there is a common server (and not even at one specific casino, but at the casino network), where information is collected on how much money is lost or won. And on the basis of this, the machine gives out successful or unsuccessful combinations. On the Internet, it doesn’t matter how much money you invested in this slot or how much money you lost in a particular casino, all numbers are common with all players.
Speaking about land-based slot machines, there the program gives out combinations based on the slot you are playing for. That is, there is no common server. It's just you and the slot machine.
But, Casino managers say that they have machines that may not pay for a month or even six months, and after some time they become so generous that they give out only winning combinations.
If you “feed” the machine, this does not guarantee that it will spit out money to you now or in a couple of hours. He may not pay for several more months, and as a result, this amount may not go to you at all! Therefore, it is very stupid to hang a sign on the machine that it is busy and run to withdraw money from the bank.
As for the RTP in an offline casino, it all depends on the country in which you play, as for Canada, the RTP is only 80 percent there, it makes no sense to play slots in Canadian casinos, it’s better to go to play roulette or baccarat.
I tried to write as much as possible about the work of games in the Casino, so the guide turned out to be so big) If you have not played in the casino and were just interested in how everything works, I, as a player, recommend that you never play, but find a normal useful hobby.
If you have any questions about the Guide, ask in the comments, I will try to answer all questions.
