# How Does A Slot Machine Work?

The first thing you have to understand about slot machines is how they determine the winning plays. This type of recreational games use a program called Random Number Generator (RNG) that generates numbers constantly. These numbers determine where the roller will stop the next time you turn it.

It must be taken into account that this process is totally random, so there is no way to predict what is going to happen in any particular roll.

Also keep in mind that each roll is an independent event. This means that the results of the previous rolls have no effect on the next roll. Random number generators are programmed so that the casino always has an insurmountable mathematical advantage. If you play a slot machine for too long, the casino will win, because that’s the way the game is scheduled.

This does not mean that you can not be a winner in a short period of time, but it has nothing to do with choosing a “hot” or cold machine (a machine where they have already played for a while or not).

Random Number Generator ( RNG )

Today slot machines have an engine or system known as Random Number Generator (RNG) which is responsible for creating the exact combination of numbers with which users take profits. Once you activate the lever, the wheels with the symbols begin to rotate and the RNG system selects three numbers that are between 1 and 64.

Each of these numbers corresponds to a position in each of the symbol wheels, are in total 22 places per wheel but more than half of numbers returned within the 64 available corresponds with blanks inside the wheels. To be more exact, the odds of winning the prize are 1/64 x 1/64 x 1/64 or what is the same, one within 262144.

Differences Between Modern Slot Machines and Old Slots

As you can see, the lever is only an ornament in the chassis of the modern slot machine, although the old used it to drive the whole mechanism in the current does not interfere with anything. Once driven this only turns the internal engines that spin the wheels but it is the RNG system that is in charge of choosing the positions where they stop.

Another big difference in modern machines over the old ones is the way to accept the payment since in the current casinos you can use coins but also money in paper, credit cards and the cards that the casinos dispose for their clients.

The gain also depends on the amount of money you put on the machine, the greater the bet the greater the gain in case you get a winning combination.

Choose A Slot With A High Payout Frequency

There are two types of slot: those who pay small but very frequently, and those who pay large amounts but each time.

Unless your goal is to win a very large amount of money (because you have enough money to go for it), we recommend that you choose the slot machines that pay more frequently because with it you will have more chances to win .
