Las Vegas Slot Machines

Las Vegas slot machines which are considered modern slot machines are designed to look and feel like the old mechanical models, but they work on a completely different principle. The outcome of each pull is actually controlled by a central computer inside the machine, not by the motion of the reels.

The positions the reels will come to rest on are chosen by a Random Number Generator (RNG) contained in the machine's software. The RNG is constantly generating random numbers, at a rate of hundreds or maybe thousands per second. As soon as the lever is pulled or the "Play" button is pressed, the most recent random number is used to determine the result. This means that the result varies depending on exactly when the game is played. A fraction of a second earlier or later, and the result would be different.

The Slot Expert's Guide to Winning at Slots

The Best Number of Coins to Play in Slots

Type of Machine Rules and Reasons
Progressives Play maximum coins.
If you play don't play maximum coins, you're only increasing the jackpot for someone else with no chance of winning it yourself.
Straight Multipliers Play one coin at a time.
The payback and hit frequency are the same regardless of the number of coins you play.
Bonus Multipliers Play one coin at a time.
The chances of hitting a payout with a bonus are so small, it's not worth the extra risk.
Buy-A-Pays Play maximum coins.
The increase in payback and hit frequency purchased by the additional coins can turn a terrible machine into a good one.
Hybrids Play just enough coins to activate all winning combinations.
Extra coins are rarely worth playing in a multiplier, and hybrids are multipliers when you're in the multiplying section of the paytable.
Hidden Buy-A-Pays Play maximum coins.
The feature activated by playing the last coin frequently makes the last coin pay back over 100%.
Multilines Play one coin or maximum coins.
Play maximum coins if having winning combinations land on paylines you didn't activate bothers you, otherwise play one coin.
Multicoin/Multilines Play one coin each on as many lines as you like.
Play one coin on each line if having winning combinations land on paylines you didn't activate bothers you, otherwise play one coin. If there's a Hidden Buy-A-Pay, play enough coins to activate it.
