Slot machines today come in many sizes, shapes and denominations. Push a button or pull a handle to touch a screen. After all that, they are basically two machines: video and reel.
Computer-controlled reel machines are now commonplace. This simply means that the program has a random number generator (RGN), which, just like video games, determines the spin of a reel or the outcome of the screen.
The (RNG), is usually set to pay 80% to 95%.
A slot machine that pays 90% will return 90% of the amount it played. This is because it has been set up to pay 90% over hundreds of thousands (and sometimes even millions) of spins.
A slot machine that has a payout of 80% is considered “tight”, as it gives the house a greater advantage (20 cents for every dollar).
A slot machine that pays less than 95% is considered a loose machine. This is because the machine gives back more to the player and the casino keeps only 5 cents of every dollar.
It can be difficult to locate these machines.
The Casino Manager can decide where the machines are placed. This varies from one casino to another. These machines can be placed anywhere, there is no fixed place. It all depends on the Casino Manager’s view of where they will get the most bang for their buck.
They are generally not placed next to one another (so if you like to play two machines simultaneously, be aware that at least one is likely to be “tight”.
They are not usually found near sportsbooks or table games (noise factor) nor close to areas where lines are made (i.e. restaurants, shows, etc. These machines are usually “tight”, as they know that you will be playing them while you wait.
They are rarely or never the “progressive judi slot pulsa machine” local to the casino. This is not the case with machines linked to other casinos in the city or state.
However, they can sometimes be found in high traffic areas or visible areas.
The higher traffic areas or high visible areas, so people walking by will see lights and hear bells going off, and in the middle of the slots area so other slots players will experience the same thing, lights, bells, noise, excitement…encouraging them to get in on the action or keep on playin’.
Sometimes they might not be able to answer your questions. It’s not a bad idea to make friends with the waitress/change gal, as they work on the casino floor every single day.
Finding the loose machine might not be as easy as it seems. After all, like any other game with random returns, the percentages will continue to increase over time. However, anything can happen in the short term. Slot machines run in cycles, too.
If you have a winning streak, the slot machine is paying multiple times in a short time. The opposite is true. A losing streak, which pays out no payouts in 6-8 or 10 spins, is considered a “cold machine”.
