Cash being inserted into a slot machine

Does it matter how you feed the machine? That’s what today’s player wonders:

Is Loading a machine (for example) one bill at a time any different then loading more all at once. Some people believe it changes the outcome of the machine to load it one at a time. $20.00 5 times vs $100.00 at one time.


We previously shared how the machine doesn’t differentiate between cash and tickets when it comes to payouts, and it doesn’t care how much you have on the meter. So let’s knock this one down too – how you put in the money doesn’t make any difference either.

That RNG is generating numbers hundreds or even thousands of times per second. So while it may change your timing, you never will know which outcome will be better: If you had started spinning sooner after that single $100 bill, or later after feeding in five $20s.

We sometimes become our own worst enemy in overthinking what individual actions can do, hoping for some level of control over the quality of our slot session. But we discourage this for one big reason – it’s all random, and if you somehow have a bad session, we don’t want people thinking they would’ve had a better one if only they fed in five $20s.

In the same vain, we don’t want people thinking that there’s some technique to unlocking better payouts by adjusting the volume, changing how money is put in, or some other slot machine “hack” because these loopholes don’t exist. Slots pay back what they pay back, without regard to who we are or what we do. 

That’s ultimately a good thing – they don’t play favorites, and they’re completely independent outcomes each time we hit that spin button. If we have a bad day, it’s just that, and not because we made some sort of mistake.
