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

How slot machines work
There are rooms for slot machines in casinos. They are called slot machines or slots. They are easy to play: the symbols spin on the slot screen, 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 symbols 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 the organization and conduct of gambling»

In short, 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. Its solution is based on mathematics, internal tuning, 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 it will give a statistically predictable result on a large number of games.

Whether you win or not is decided by 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 made it 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 are different companies whose names only make sense for casino owners. Regardless of the company and origin, all slot machines must be certified for playing in Russia and have customizable game parameters available only to casinos.

Still 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 game process is the same for slot machines. 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 click.

For the player, the slot machines differ in the quality of graphics, sound, body and buttons. Inside all the machines are soulless semiconductors and many layers of protection. There are no” more successful “or” less successful ” games on slot machines.

Can I win at the casino
Most of the jackpots and other winnings in the casino do not occur at the expense of the casino, but at the expense of other people’s losses. Almost any win on the slot machine means that you take the money that other players have fed to the slot machine. And if you are promised to tell you how to “ruin the casino”, do not believe it: either deceive you, or suggest that you cheat the casino. And both will not end well.

This does not prevent you from winning fairly, just do not think that you beat the casino in this way.
