Casinos were not installed with slot machines in the initial few days of their establishment and it was only the games like Blackjack, roulette etc that ruled all over the gaming area. But there arose a need for a change and also to involve and divert people from the regular gambling activities and this is when the slot machines were introduced. Slot machines are just simple games wherein the player is required to either drop cards, spin the wheel or roll a dice and the machine would give the results based on the outcome. This game required no special knowledge and hence was easy for even the freshers and beginners in gambling to see a possible win. And again the deposit that is demanded by this game is also very small. Now how would be the payouts then? Of course smaller than the outcomes from the other games because the payouts are lesser than the winning odds.
Though this was a not a very profitable game, many people liked the idea of just spinning or rolling the dice without any special experience and hence became very popular in a very short time. Now they attribute to around 60% of the gambling profits to the casinos for that high is the number of people who like playing these slot machines.
Modern slot machines
The conventional slot machines are now getting replaced with the modern computerized slot machines. These machines work based on the instructions and principles of a central computer which was not the case with the older ones wherein everything was based on the spin of the wheels and decision of the reels. In the modern machines, each pull is controlled by this central system and this central computer uses step motors to turn all the reels and bring them to a stop at a specific spot. These step motors are driven by digital pulses that run on electricity. Just because these spins are controlled by the computer, do not assume that the spins are pre-programmed or the spinning designs are pre-set. There is a random number generator attached to these computer run slot machines that give an equal number of hits at the jackpot. So these machines are just like the older ones just that there are computerized. And of course for operating and playing with these machines, you need no special knowledge or skill but just play with them like how you would play with the older ones.
Computerised slot machines have brought in a revolution in the gambling field and in the history of casinos. With these advanced machines, players are at ease to play with their credit accounts and there is absolutely no need for coins or money to be deposited in the machine. This has made playing slot machines, even more, better and attractive. The demand for play has gone on a rise and there is a number of people visiting the casinos than ever before. Now with these machines, the player will also get to know his wins and losses and he can keep a track of them just like the casinos. And they have also made playing simpler. There is no need for pulling or pushing the lever up and down which was how the slot machines were played a few years ago but just push the start button and the wheel starts spinning. It's become as simple as that.
Paybacks with the computerized slot machines
For every casino, there is a rule or they are abided by the jurisdiction of the country they belong to. And these rules say that the payback has to be above a certain level, say above 75%. But most of the casinos generally offer more than this like 80-90% and this is not to attract gamblers and to be positioned at a better place than the other casinos but only to help the gamblers have a better chance to win more. Generally, the winning odds in a computerized slot machine are all programmed on the computer`s chip and these odds cannot be changed without changing the chip. So anything and everything works with only this chip and nothing else. So try playing the slot machines of the modern days and see what best you can take from them.
