If you play the slot machines, your dream is to hit it big. You would just love to see the pictures line up and you hit the big jack pot. However, the chances of that actually happening are pretty slim. First of all, you need to realize that when you walk into a casino, the odds are already with the casino. The machines may look all shiny and inviting by they are programed to take your money eight-three to ninety-nine percent of the time, which means you lose.
Even if the slot machines that you are looking at look exactly the same, they are completely different machines. It is not the same as putting the quarter in one gum ball machine instead of the other. With any gum ball machine you will get a gum ball, with slot machines, you could be getting an entirely different machine. Machines are run by microchip that processes a series of random numbers even when the slot machine looks like it is not being played. These machines have billions of combinations, so the odds of you hitting the jackpot are pretty slim.
This processor that runs the machines is controlled to make sure that you lose a good percentage of the time. Therefore, when you are playing and you finally see those pictures stop in place, you are really seeing the will of the machine. You are seeing the machine give your money back to the casino. Before you even begin to play the outcome of your spin is already set in place. Therefore, it does not matter how long you have been sitting there, what matters is what the processor is thinking at that exact moment.
All this means that they way that you pick a machine has absolutely not basis in whether you will win or lose. If you are noticing that a machine has been played all day with no wins, that machine is not due for a win. It just means that the processor is coming up with combinations that are not a payoff.
