How Slots Machines Work


 
Gambling,Video Games
Slots machines are very popular entertainment devices. When anyone goes to Las Vegas or Atlantic City casinos, they will see slots machines are the most abundant of all gaming machines on the floors. Slots machines are simple devices that line numbers and symbols in a linear formation . Winners are those who get lines that have a payout on the machine. But the machine itself is totally amazing. There are two types of slots machines conventional and computerized. In the conventional slots machine, as the lever is pulled, the lever rotates a latch piece that latches to the kicker and pulls it forward. The latch piece is called a control cam.. The control cam rotates several gears as well as pulls stoppers away from the reels. Stoppers let the reels rotate freely. As the lever continues to move, the kicker has a spring that jerks the kicker backward and the reels spin even more quickly.

As the reels spin quickly, the control cam moves slowly back into place. As it moves back into place, it releases the stoppers. The stoppers are released one at a time and will hold each reel in place. As they finish, the result is shown with payout amount if any amount is won.

Computerized slots machines are designed to look like conventional machines but work differently. In a computer slots machine, step motors are used and stop at predetermined stops. They are driven by electric pulses. Computerized slots machines are fed by a random number generator also called an RNG.

The RNG is the heart of the computerized slots machine. Randomly numbers are being generated as soon as the machine is turned on at hundreds of times per second. And when a player either pulls the lever or presses a button, the RNG will feed these numbers to the computer at a location on the reels. These numbers are the final results.

The payout results in a slots machine have to be at a certain level in most jurisidictions. The amount is usually 75 percent. But most casinos have payouts at 90 percent or higher to keep traffic coming into their casinos. But this brings up the other side of computerized slots machines. The RNG can be changed to allow various percentages and corresponding wins or losses. These slots machines are called either tight or loose. The variable in a tight or loose slots machine is the computer chip. As the computer chip is changed, so do the odds of winning. Generally, if you're at the casino , the computerized slots machines you see are not adjusted tighter or looser and have higher payouts than 75 percent. Changing the odds can be done remotely since 2006, but the machine must be idle for four minutes and locked to new players for four minutes and display to potential players that changes were made.

One big advantage of computerized slots machines is they are able to be linked to a progressive jackpot. Progressive slots jackpots are like mini lotteries for slots players. Players contribute as they deposit and play slots games. A progressive jackpot is usually won when a player gets five valuable symbols like cherries in a five reel machine . To win a progressive jackpot, a player needs to bet the full amount with each bet.

This is an overview of slots machines and how they work. The next time you're at a casino , you'll know a little more about how slots machines work and know which machines to play at for best results. Conventional slots machines aren't linked to progressive jackpots but can give players hours of fun .
