5 Slot Machine Myths Debunked
I’m sure you’ve heard plenty of slot machine myths. However, this begs the question, is there any truth to them?
For example, it’s hard to believe that one man won as much as $21 million and then a further 4.6 million dollars on a Las Vegas slot machine! However, this really happened!
Throughout this article, we’re going to debunk a few misconceptions about slot machines so that you can game firmly in the know.
So, without further ado, let’s dive in!
Myth #1 You Can Manipulate the Slot Machines
Years ago there were plenty of examples where people manipulated the slot machines to their benefit.
However, these days this is little more than a myth with no credible evidence to support it.
As time’s moved on, so has the sophistication of these machines. Hence, manufacturers are doing everything within their power to put a stop to these ‘workarounds,’ and they’ve got rather good at it!
Myth #2 There Are Hot and Cold Slots
Unless you’re stalking slot machines at a real casino (which we don’t recommend doing unless you’re deliberately trying to annoy security!), you won’t know which device has just emptied.
Therefore there’s no possible way of knowing which slots are hot and which are cold. Hence, it’s much safer to assume there’s no such thing as hot or cold slots.
Myth #3 You Should Raise Your Stake If You’re Loosing
There’s nothing worse than dumping a load of money into a slot machine and not seeing a return. However, there’s no use raising your stake, this very rarely makes a difference, and when it does, it’s sheer luck!
Myth #4 the Temperature of the Coins Matter
Out of all of these myths, this one’s the most ridiculous.
There’s nothing to say on this matter other than there’s no way that using warm coins increases the likelihood of winning!
Myth #5 the Machine’s Location Is Important
There used to be a degree of truth in this. Years ago casino managers would put hotter slot machines on the ends of the aisles to try and attract more gamblers.
However, nowadays there isn’t any evidence to suggest this is still the case. Especially, when you consider that manufacturers have done their best to rid themselves of ‘hot machines.’
