Online slot machines games that you will find on Pkv Games are specially designed to entertain, that’s a fact just like the slots you find in offline casinos. If played for real money, they represent entertainment you pay for – most of the time the winnings don’t cover the money wagered on them. People like to play these games, though, even if they know that in the long run they almost surely lose money – the games are entertaining, enticing… fun.
People often think that the outcome of the spins at the slot machines are governed by other things instead of pure chance, believing they are more likely to win using certain patterns at different times of the day. There are a series of such ‘slot machine myths’, usually disproven by statistics. Let’s see some of these below.
Some people believe that the time of the day has a certain influence on slot machines. Some say slots pay more often in the morning, others swear that the night is a more lucrative period. Well, this is not true: random number generators are computer programs, and as such, they don’t get tired or refreshed depending on the time of the day.
Also, some say that the slots can be ‘confused’ by alternating different betting patterns. This is not true either, and for the same reason as the above myth: random number generators. These programs are designed to be impartial and fair, and most importantly completely random. Pushing or hitting buttons, or touching the machine in certain ways doesn’t work either, for the same reason. Positive thinking also doesn’t influence the outcome of the spin, but it’s always a good thing to think positive, so don’t drop this one…
Some people believe that continuing to play after a losing streak will lead to a winning that makes up for the losses suffered earlier. This is not true either, as statistics show. The previous wagers don’t have any influence on the outcome of the current spin – it would also be illegal in some territories. The slots – and every other casino game – are designed (and required) to operate randomly under any circumstances.
Another slot machine myth: a ‘close miss’ indicates an imminent big win. This is also disproven by statistics and for reasons the same as above. Every spin is a separate, random event, with no influence on the next one. This is a fact, deal with it.
The worst myth of all does not refer to the machines themselves, but to the person of the player, and can be applied to all games relying on pure chance. If the player thinks to be a skillful enough player to beat the odds of these games, he is wrong: skill has nothing to do with the outcome of these games. Your chances of winning are the same, no matter if you play slots for the first time or you spent half of your life betting on these machines.
So, forget about hoodoo, forget about caressing the machine or talking to it nicely – all you need is luck to win at the slot machines.
