We receive emails daily asking questions about slot machines. When it makes sense we create an article to tackle a question in-depth. When it doesn’t we list and answer them on this page. You’ll find more than 20 slot related questions and answers below.

What Kind of Questions Do You Accept?

Any! We generally stick to answers about real live games, but do accept the odd online question.

The list below is only a small sampling, but it does reflect some of the more popular questions readers have submitted. This includes questions relating to payback percentages, RNG, where and how to purchase a used slot machine, cheating and so on.

Is gambling on a slot machine really random?

Yes. Both virtual and physical slot machines use a random number generator (RNG). This is a computer-run program or algorithm that randomly chooses numbers. Each number is connected to a symbol. When that number / symbol is chosen, it (the reel) stops.

There is no such thing as a slot machine being due to hit or having a payout cycle. There might be exceptions, but not at a legit casino. Casinos wouldn’t want that anyway – they make the most money when games are entirely random with no element of skill involved.

Can and do casinos change the payout on slot machines?

Based on my research that varies on the casino, jurisdiction, type of machine, etc. With the machine it sounds as simple as changing the weight on the reels or swapping out a chip. In one of these cases the casino could alter the payout. However, if the casinos do there is paperwork involved, which includes reporting the changes to gaming authorities.

It used to be that the machines return percentage was set at the factory. It sounds like that’s not the case anymore, at least not any more than the weights and/or chips I mentioned above.
