Lots of players want to crack the code – how can you find a hot slot machine?

Finding a hot slot machine is simple – it’s going to be the machine that’s recently paid out a lot – a handpay, a bunch of small wins that add up, and so on. Maybe it’s the one that a player is yelling and screaming on because of their particularly hot bonus or line hit!

Here’s the wrinkle, and why this is in our myths category – a hot slot machine (or a cold one, for that matter) won’t help you know what happens next.

As humans, we love to look for patterns. You know the lines: This game is paying out a lot, so it will keep paying out a lot! This game hasn’t bonused in awhile, so it’s due to provide one! 

But each spin is independent of the spin that comes before it or after it, and any outcome is possible on any particular spin, thanks to the random number generator. And as a result of that, knowing what has happened in the past won’t offer any help for what will happen in the future.

So those players that say you shouldn’t move from a hot slot machine, or that you should move on from a cold slot machine, aren’t making any better or worse decisions than players who do the opposite, because the future could go in any direction within the set of outcomes a game can provide.

This is one of those myths that are ultimately neutral – since you don’t know which game is going to pay out, if you decide to switch or not because of the recent past, it won’t impact what will happen on your next batch of spins. That is, unless you choose to cash out because you’re ahead and pocket some winnings in a Winners Bank – then that is a savvy strategy to go home with money!
