Slots Myths

There are many myths and rumours surrounding online slots (fruit machines), most of which are completely untrue. We'd like to set the record straight and debunk a few of the more common slots myths, which seem to be regularly debated.

Firstly, lots of people believe that if you hit the progressive jackpot on a particular machine, it's not likely to happen a second time round. Online slot machines however use a computer microchip, which generates over several billion combinations the moment you spin. As the combination that appears on the screen is completely random, there's nothing to say that a winning combination can't be struck several times over.

Another common slot myth is that the casinos are somehow rigging their machines to pay out at particular times and that the payout rate is higher during weekends and/or high traffic periods. Online slots and casinos however are carefully regulated and audited, often by independent companies, and must ensure fair play. With the online casino business so fiercely competitive, it's simply not in the interests of operators to cheat players and not run their businesses professionally.

If a machine hasn't hit for some time, some people believe that a payout must be imminent! Again, the random number generator makes this impossible as it neither remembers or predicts anything to do with payouts and simply comes up with a combination that may or may not be a winner.

For the same reason, if someone sits down at a machine and wins it doesn't mean that the last person to play could have had that chance if they had stayed on. The random number generator makes the odds of this simply impossible.

Finally, all winning combinations are not the same and it is much easier for a player to win by striking a number of small combinations, than by hitting the big jackpot once off.

When considering the myths about online slots it's also important to remember that online slots have one of the highest payout rates of any online video gambling game. This is one of the reasons why they're not only extremely popular but also lots of fun!

The payouts in online fruit machine games ARE NOT A MYTH! Thats right, 95% or more as a payout is a 100% true fact, that is recognised by thousands and thousands of players around the world, making fruit machines by far the most played type of game played at online casinos.
