Are online slot machines really random?
There are two schools of thought that the slot machines are random or not! Firstly let’s talk about what the owners of online casinos say! Online casino slot machines use some random number generators to produce random numbers –that determine the game outcome. RNGs, random number generators, are algorithms designed in the computer to generate as random as possible numbers.
There are millions of combinations available, and when a player presses the play button, RNG randomly selects one of the combinations. Moreover, slot machines have no memory –every spin is independent of the previous one, making it quite random. Slot machines have either winning or losing options; there’s no ‘maybe lose’ or ‘maybe win’ choice for the players.
