A slot machine is a gaming device with three or more reels which spin when a button is pushed or a handle is pulled.
Slots machines contain a micro-computer “random number generator” (RNG) that constantly produces numbers, even while the machine is not in use. Pulling the handle or pushing the “Spin” button only begins the spinning of the wheels, which is purely for show. This action displays the reel positions that coordinate with the set of random numbers that were generated when you pushed “Spin” or pulled the handle.
A typical three-wheel machine could produce 27,000 possible results when played. Partial payouts will be the majority of results because there is only a 1 in 27,000 chance that the machine’s jackpot will be generated. However, the combination of numbers that coincide with this 1 in 27,000 jackpot may be produced frequently because of the RNG. When playing slot machines, remember that every play is random; one pull is completely independent of the previous or succeeding pull. Everything comes down to precisely when you push “Spin” or pull the handle. A completely different result can be yielded just by playing 1/100 of a second later.
