How the casino works. And why is it an honest business in which luck is still not on your side

It’s just such fun
The editorial Board of Tinkoff magazine warns: casino is not a way to earn money or invest, it’s just entertainment for your money. You pay constantly to sometimes have a chance to get a big win. In parallel, you are entertained.

All “systems” and “proven methods of guaranteed winnings” are either deceptive or illegal. Spend only the money you want to lose at the casino.

How slot machines work
In the casino there are halls for slot machines. They are called slot machines or slots. It’s easy to play them: the symbols are spinning on the screen of the slot, and the player’s task is to collect a winning combination. You Deposit a bill, set the game parameters, and place a bet. If several characters are collected according to the specified parameters, you win. Symbols are collected by themselves according to the algorithm sewn into the slot: dexterity of hands and the force of pressing do not affect the result.

Casino activity in Russia is regulated by the law ” on state regulation of gambling activities». Briefly about how a slot machine works: any slot machine is a computer with a screen and several buttons. At the heart of this computer is a chip that decides whether you win now or not. His solution is tied to math, internal setup, and a bunch of other things. The chip is designed so that it is impossible to predict its behavior specifically now, but that in the long run on a large number of games it gives a statistically predictable result.

Whether you win or not is up to the chip in the computer
There were stories in the press about someone hacking slot chips with special emitters. They say that they gave out certain waves that confused the chip and forced it to pay the winnings at a predictable moment. Even if this is true, it is a crime in Russia — if caught, they can put you in jail.

There are a huge number of slot machine models. They come from different companies whose names only make sense to casino owners. Regardless of the company and origin, all slot machines must be certified for playing in Russia and have customizable game parameters that are only available to casinos.

More slot machines are divided by the type of case and differ in landing: upright and slant-top. On upright machines, the monitor is set almost vertically, at eye level; on slant-top, it is significantly tilted. The slot machines have the same gameplay. The deciding factor when choosing a slot machine for a player will be the game they plan to play. The casinos where I worked preferred uprights. They had the most popular games, as well as mechanical rather than electronic buttons. They are more pleasant to press.
