False myths about Online Slots

mzl.oxhrliitFirst of all we must unravel the greatest of myths that surround Online Slots. That is their connection with normal slot machines. Well in fact there is no strong connection between these two. While by playing normal slot machines you just insert a coin and push or press, Online Slots offer much more. In most cases they include background music to calm players, and, or animations that follow games you play.

They aim to make players comfortable while they play, in order to avoid players getting bored after some time spent playing.

Of course there are a lot of other myths about online Slots that circle around, and they more than often serve to discourage people from playing Online Slots.

All of these so called myths are utter nonsense and they, like many other myths are fabricated but those that had bad luck or those who don’t know but still play Online Slots or similar games.

There are few big myths that exist for a long amount of time, and were first fabricated by players and non-players of regular slot machines. With arrival of online betting, these myths were transferred to Online Slots by sore losers of the same.

Among many, some of the greatest myths, that are false, are on the list below.

-One of the greatest myths surrounding the Online Slots is that they give more winnings when there are less players playing in online casinos, but they give close to none when action starts, and servers get full (this is usually around early night hours, when people come from work).

This is untrue. Not every player can win. Casinos balance winnings for all players and for all games including Online Slots. If every player wins, casinos lose money needed to operate. So there has to be a balance between winning and losing to ensure continuous existence of casinos and to keep players happy, so they can become regular customers.

shutterstock_227249680-Another myth that came from regular slot machines but is strongly rooted in people around mobile pokies is that game closes its chances to give if someone already won big money on that game. And if players didn’t win for a long time on a certain slot game, then that game has bigger chances to give money.

This is of course another misconception about Online Slots. Each spin, and each play of the games on Online Slots is independent of any exterior influence. Previous plays, amount of money invested, time difference of previous winnings are not factors that influence players spins.

-Another myth about Online Slots is that every game is already programmed and every spin is already calculated, and that they repeat in a cycle.

This is also untrue. Every play on any Online Slot game is random, and there are no pre-programmed spins. Each play is independent and only factor that matters is luck.

 

Those were some of the biggest myths about Online Slot games.  You should know that many Online Slot games provide free demos where you can test those games for free and decide whether to play them for real or not.

Online casino 101: all you need to know

Whether you visit Vegas on a regular basis, or whether you only seldom place a few dollars on your favorite baseball team it’s hard, or downright impossible, to find an adult man who never in his life had gambled, at least in some way or the other. We could compare it to a widespread addiction, or better to say that it is more like a virus which we all carry inside but it can cause problems only to a small number of people whose “sickness” goes out of control and becomes pathological. To the rest of us it only presents a meaningless and harmless entertainment, with just a small investment required.
So, just like in real-life Vegas (or any other town), where you can choose your type of gambling we have the same principle involved with online casino. With rise and expansion of internet and computer technologies, online marketing and e-banking, casinos had found a secure and legitimate way to go along with streams of modernization and to become casinos of the future, i.e. Casino2.0.
inter-casino1Online casinos are then basically replicas of the ones found in real world, but with one distinction – the money you lose may not be real. Casinos give you an option to gamble fictional money, or to play practice games for free, but majority of people do visit those internet sites to pursue, and hopefully catch, that potential cup of gold at the end of the rainbow.
Naturally, odds in that race are stacked in favor of the “house”, or the company that provides the gambling experience. The scales are slightly tipped on their side with a little something called a “house edge”, which is a percentage of money that the house is sure to gather after every deposit you make, or even after every winning you happen to have. But that number is very small so most of the players just decide to ignore it and eventually they forget all about it.
Highly complicated and sophisticated mathematical algorithms are the ones responsible for this, and the outcome of each game is predicted by “pseudorandom number generator” (PRNG). Of course, everybody realize that it is not completely random, but statistically it comes ever so close and it is generally accepted in that sense. This technology determines the outcome of a dice throw, or the order of cards being drawn, or sequence of fruits coming out on your old-fashioned slots machine.

  • Blackjack
  • Roulette
  • Craps
  • Baccarat
  • Poker
  • Slots

There are of course many more of those, such as sic bo, keno, bingo, etc., and all of them have to be powered by a computer software – and the biggest companies that produce and sell these are Microgaming (founded all the way back in 1994), Playtech, International Game Technology, Realtime Gaming and CryptoLogic Inc (now Amaya).
Their job is to ensure that everything goes on as smoothly as possible, and that both the house and the player are satisfied after a session. Players are generally not satisfied when they log out with zero on account but that is the nature of gambling itself – sometimes you win, sometimes you lose.

Starting from land-based “one-armed bandits”, slot machines have come a long way in their design, style and methods of playing. The land-based machines themselves have undergone some changes throughout the years, but beside that, they have also got their online versions, with the appearance and development of the Internet.
