Initially, casinos installed slot machines as an entertainment for come- and-go players. Slots don’t require any knowledge, and anyone can enter the game with a very small bet. As a result, slot machines have become the most popular and profitable game bringing more than 65% of the annual income of online and offline casinos. Classic constructions were almost completely replaced by computers, but the game remained the same. A player pulls a handle or presses a button to spin the reels. Whether you win or loose is determined by what pictures appeared on the screen. If each reel shows the same winning picture along the line, you win. The amount of payment depends on which pictures are located on the line.

The maximum possible winnings in slots

The maximum winning on most slot machines is about 1000 times more than the bet itself, sometimes the payout can reach 25,000x. So, if you put a cent for a spin, the maximum winnings on most machines will be about $10.


The speed of the game in slot machines

Slots as an entertainment are much more expensive than other casino games. You can play blackjack up to 100 rounds per hour, and in the slots you can spin your slots 800 times per hour. The speed of the game increases the loss of money, and enlarges the bank account of the casino owner. Although table-top games are usually better, their online version can be played so quickly that you lose as much money as in slot machines. The trick is to make smaller bets. You must constantly keep in mind the budget for the game and not exceed it.


Reasons for the popularity of slot machines

Slot machine myths

Myth No. 1. If the slot only took away your money, then it should give it back. This myth arises from a misunderstanding of the payback percentage. All you need to know is that every spin is completely random.
Myth No. 2: Jackpot is more likely if it hasn’t occurred for a long time. Each spin of the reel is random.
Myth No. 3. Someone received the main prize on the slot on which I stopped playing. If I continued to play, I would win! True, it’s quite believable. But the fact is that the slot constantly selects random numbers, even when no one is playing it. There is practically no chance that you will press the button in that exact microsecond that the other person pressed.
Myth No. 4. Something changes the chances. Nothing changes the chances. The results on the slots are random. Casino owners are interested in buying slots that can’t be influenced by anything.
Myth No. 5. I missed a big win because I did not play at the maximum bet. Each spin of the slot is completely random.
