Online pokies are one of the best and most played internet casino games of all time in Australia. For that reason, slots online have yielded quite a lot of misconceptions and myths. This article tackles some of the most common online pokie myths and misconceptions, and provides Aussies with factual corrections to such. Read on.
Online Pokie Myths and Facts Australia
Myth #1: A special software or special digital key is used by casino operators to ‘shift down’ or reduce a player’s edge in pokies games. Online casinos use this special tool when an online gambler has won massive amounts or if there are many potential online casino gamblers visiting the internet casino site.
Fact: There is no such a thing. Internet casino sites do not use any win/loss adjustment tool to temper with your online pokies game play. More so, three separate entities are responsible for online slots, each focuses on a complete different area. There is the gambling site itself, a pokie game supplier and a software owner.
Myth #2: Pokies run hot and cold. A slot that’s been used non-stop throughout the day increases one’s chances of winning. If you leave the pokie without winning, the next player is likely to win at first attempt because the pokie is “hot” from all the game play.
Fact: Pokie games do not run hot or cold. Although this theory was believed for quite a long time, especially at land-based casinos, there is just no such a thing (unless the land-based casino physically tempers with the slot machine to adjust your winning potential). Crown Melbourne was recently accused of this and a probe by Australian authorities is still underway.
Online pokies use what’s called a random number generator (RNG). Every second of the day, the RNG yields numbers. Results for a pokie game are determined every split second.
Myth #3: The odds of winning increase when you play your maximum bet
Fact: A random number generator randomly spits out digit combinations, it does not take your wagers into consideration or whatsoever. With that said online pokies in Australia are simply fair to wager at.
