Now that I’ve talked about the various gambling machines, a simple question arises: Do all slot machines have Random Number Generators (RNGs)?
STATUS: Only Vegas-style machines are truly slot machines. And all Vegas-style machines are governed by an RNG. So yes, all slot machines have RNGs.
And although all those games may have the same themes as slots, or look and behave like slots, they don’t operate similarly so they’re technically not slot machines at all.
If you play a free spin bonus on an RNG-driven game, it’s most likely also driven by an RNG. Bonuses on non-slot machines are predetermined. Some bonuses, such as progressive picks, on Vegas-style slots can be predetermined too. But there are definitely some that are driven by the RNG.
As I’ve mentioned in other posts, where players get confused or superstitious is whether an RNG-driven game pays better than a predetermined one, or whether you can have true control over your destiny to win more or lose less and that answer’s quite simple: No.
Regardless of an RNG approach or an external outcome, games have a payback target based on how they’re programmed, so you presuming two casinos, one with Vegas-style slots and one with Bingo or some other external outcome, but with the same payout setup in the long term, you’ll not do any better or worse, on average anyway, in casino over another.
