Through casino games , casinos generate income by paying less, which means that the odds of winning are less than the actual stakes. With table games, this can be relatively easy. In real roulette with a double zero with the numbers 1 to 36 and 0 and 00, the actual probability of winning a number is 37: 1, but the bank pays out single number winners only in a ratio of 35: 1.

Possible results

HOW MANY POSSIBLE RESULTS ARE THERE?

Slot machines work similarly to the roulette example, except that there are many more options with slot machines. There are thousands, sometimes millions, of roller combinations. Game designers also have scope to allocate the winning amount for each winning combination. The number of winning combinations and the payouts per winner together determine the chances of winning the game.

The high number of possibilities makes the math behind slot machines much more complicated than table games.

Older slot machines with three reels and 10 symbols per reel had 1,000 possible combinations (10 x 10 x 10).

When empty roles between the lines were used as stops, the number of combinations increased to 20 x 20 x 20, i.e. 8,000.

With larger reels with 20 symbols each and 29 empty reels, you get 40 x 40 x 40 or 64,000 combinations.

With the introduction of virtual rollers, programmers were able to design the machine so that the rollers behave as if they had any number of stops. With 100 stops on each of the three reels, 1 million combinations are created. The three-reel Megabucks slot machine, which broke the world record of more than $ 39 million in jackpots, has 50 million combinations. Most modern video slot machines have five video reels that can be as large as the game maker desires. With 100 symbols on each of the five reels, there are 10 billion combinations.
