It is true that to play online slots do not need predictive algorithms such as those used for sports betting or traditional French roulette , but it never hurts to have some basic mathematical notions. You may not earn more money with them, but you may lose less.
Slots, also called Las Vegas-style slots, are a type of game for which no skill is required. In fact, that is one of the foundations of their success and what makes them the main source of revenue for most online casino genting.
The interfaces of this type of games of chance are completely intuitive and, unlike the so-called “fruit slots”, do not even require making decisions. Since it is not possible to cultivate the skill to win, the only option that slot players have is to understand the basics of the machine.
What does RNG mean in the slots?
The acronym RNG comes from the English “Random Number Generator”, in Spanish generator of random numbers. In the slots is called the software in charge of its operation. Let’s say it’s a digital version of what was once the internal mechanism of physical machines.
Initially, the slots worked mechanically based on concepts such as randomization. In fact the reels or rollers that we still find in the digital versions, are reminiscent of those “bandidas” operated with a lever.
But as you can imagine, those mechanisms had their shortcomings in terms of possible combinations and the order in which they appeared. Currently each slot title has its own micro generator of between one and several hundred million numbers per second, which determine the position of the rollers.
When the digital processes overcame the limitations of the mechanics in terms of random generation, it ended up predicting or altering the combinations of the machines. Since then the slots became real machines of chance and winning or losing has been just a matter of luck.
