There are a lot of myths circulating about how to win the jackpot on a slot machine. At Golden Acorn Casino, we’ve pretty much heard them all. Unfortunately, many people take these misconceptions to heart and end up disappointed when they don’t win.
At Golden Acorn, we’re big believers that visiting the casino should be a fun experience, not one that leaves you feeling defeated. Before we attempt to dispel the myths about slot machine strategy, it’s important to understand how slot machines actually work.
Slot machines have a chip inside of them that runs a Random Number Generator (RNG). The RNG constantly cycles through numbers even when no one is playing on the machine. When you hit the spin button or pull the lever, the RNG picks the combination at that given nanosecond and displays that same series of numbers behind the payline.
Why are we telling you this? Understanding how rapidly the RNG cycles through number combinations helps us to dispel our first, and what’s probably the most frustrating, myth about slot machine strategy.
