Slot Machine Odds

Steampunk Slots  of Reels, Copper & Rivets.
The overall odds for the slot machines are built into the operating program on their computer chips. In most of recorded cases the casino cannot change the odds on the machine without first replacing the chip and voiding the warranty of the entire device.. Despite popular opinions, a casino cannot instantly tighten up a machine so let out more (or less) money. A machine is also not more (or less) likely to produce a winning payline the longer you play on the slot machine. Slot machines are constantly pulling up random numbers therefore the player has exactly the same chance of hitting the jackpot every single time he or she begins playing slots. It is also not in the interest of the particular casino that the machines will give a less generous payout than at their competitors as that will drive their business away. The player should therefore feel confident that all slot machines are run by a computer chip and that the likelihood of winning is in fact a matter of luck.

Casinos are not just for Fat Cats
Before beginning to play online casino slots at the online casino, it is of critically  importance that the player first research the online casino very thoroughly and in-depth. The player must ensure that the online casino has a good reputation and is a reputable place to enjoy playing slot machine games. When choosing a place to play online casino slots it is also important to make sure that they have a suitable method for you to both deposit and eventually withdraw your winnings from the slot games that you will play there. Slot machine games are random games of chance but they also carry with them relatively high chances of winning a generous payout, such as the progressive slots, which have jackpots north of $1 Million USD.

Whichever online casino you choose for playing online casino games make sure that it offers a full selection of the pokies and slot machine games that you most enjoy as well as many options for extra bonuses and free spins to make your slot machine experience even more rewarding and more fun.

Many of the newer video slots games are designed so that there are many small prizes as jackpots, so as to keep the players interested and make it more fun, and then there is a falloff of medium sized jackpots and again a peak, this time with mega jackpots, we are talking hunderds of thousands of dollars. The makers of the games designed it this way because they realized that the more people win and have fun doing so, the more people will play, which helps everyone in the long and short run.

The Steampunk Slots Machines

Steam Powered SteamPunk Poker Machine
The slot machine is one of the most popular games played by gamblers, both online and and off. The first slot machine was invented by a mechanic named Charles Fey in 1897. The original slot machine that he invented consisted of three spinning wheels and was named the Liberty Bell. In 1891 (ripe for the age of SteamPunk) another slot machine emerged in New York that had five reels and was based on the game of poker. Over the years the slots also known as pokies have continued to evolve and become more sophisticated. The technological era brought with it many advances and here too the slot machine became a product of the technological improvements. As well as the many video slots that are a mainstay on the casino floor, the world of the online casino and more specifically online slots has completely changed the face of the original slot machine created over a hundred years ago.

A slot machine by any other name is still a slots.

A slot machine is known by many names. In England it is a fruit machine, a Canadian would simply refer to it as the slots, while an Australian will be heard referring to a slot machine as a poker machine or for short pokies. A slot machine is basically a casino gambling machine with three reels that spin once a button is pushed. The original slot machines would pay out a prize depending on which symbols would appear on the machine when the reels came to a stop. Modern computer technology has resulted in many different versions of the slot machines. Because there are no longer any mechanical constraints, the modern slot machines will often display five reels as opposed to the original three. The increase in the number of reels has greatly expanded the possibilities so that there are more frequent smaller payouts.

Online Blackjack Strategies

 Many theories of Blackjack strategy state that the insurance bet offered in most games is a waste of time and in fact can end up costing the player more money. The insurance bet is a side bet that a player can place when the show card of the dealer is an Ace or a card that holds the value of 10, face cards included. The insurance is an extra bet that insures against the dealers second card being an Ace or 10 value card which will give the dealer a blackjack. If and insurance bet is placed and the dealer does in fact have a blackjack, the player only loses half of his bet made. Having said that, the cost of the insurance does not always cover the losses made with the extra bet and therefore insurance should not be taken at every chance.
