Myth Busting: The Truth About Slots

Are slots machines rigged? This question is a forum favourite. If you’re not familiar with gaming industry regulation, you could be forgiven for swinging towards this opinion. Grosvenor Casinos adheres to the strictest regulation to ensure fairness in all its games.

To emphasise just how secure Grosvenor Casino’s slot games are, we’re busting some of the most common myths.

Myth 1: Casinos choose when you win and lose

Busted: Each spin is random. If there is a period of time where a slot machine pays out a lot of money, or holds back, this is simply a result of short-term deviation. In the long run, the results will equate to the expected payout rate or return to player (RTP%).

Myth 2: Pulling handles gives a better chance of winning than pushing buttons

Busted: The outcome of any spin is determined by a random number generator (RNG), which isn’t affected by how the reels are spun. The same goes for using the auto play feature.

Myth 3: Playing with a bonus or loyalty card ruins your chances of winning

Busted: The random number generators (RNG) have no way of knowing you are playing with a bonus or loyalty card. Plus, your loyalty card is there to reward, not punish.

Myth 4: Coin and machine temperature makes a difference

Busted: Our machines don’t treat warm coins any differently and well-played machines don’t get hot before they’re ready to pay out. The odds of winning are the same whenever you play, regardless of any external circumstances.

Myth 5: Casinos change the odds on their slot machines?

Busted: Casinos can’t change the odds on their slot machines; they are already programmed onto the machine’s computer chip. It’s the manufacturers who decide what the odds should be, and this is based around their pre-programmed payout rate and total jackpot.
