Almost every player in slots tends to bet their way with an “In God we trust” attitude. Some hold tight to the lucky frog or talisman for the reel to stop for the payoffs they have bet upon; however, they need to understand that the results are not brought up from the lucky angel, but it is brought from the “data programmed therein at the random number generator.” It is not difficult to make winning decisions when you are sure of what the next set of values are likely to be, but random number generators are programmed in a way where you will not able to guess on what next!

Random number generators in online slot machines appear really random to the end user, but from the programmers point of view, he can pretty well guess what the next number will be because he understands the value of x, where n = x.

X is the number pertaining to the player number (rank) in queue playing in the software for that day. For the nth player in the day, a particular number or combination of pictures is programmed to appear. Since the nth player can be anyone from anywhere in the globe and you will not know your position for the day, this can be considered a random result.

Some player from China should have logged in for today as the first player, but he would not know if he is the first or tenth or … player for the day for that software. He will not be able to guess where he falls in the series of number used in the formula.

The internal coding will have the values re-allotted in the main server every time a player plays in. The formula is written to restart the value tables for Pacific Time or Eastern Time or Greenwich Mean Time or in some cases it will be reset per hour or at a random frequency of time.

There are authorities which check the formula supporting the gaming software to make sure that the numbers are showing up randomly.

When you program, nothing in reality can be random, but at the most the gambling authorities ensure that the numbers are not guessable and that they are not programmed with codes which tamper with the outcome of the pictures in a way that the casino is always the beneficiary.

Say, if the player bets on three same pictures and if the random series is going to show that number for that reel per formula; if….then….else manipulative code can be inserted to interfere with the result thereby keeping the player at disadvantage. The gaming authorities ensure that such ill-codes are not there in the random number generator.

When such manipulative codes are not there in the program and the overall programs are random, then the numbers generated by the program are considered to be “accepted as random.”

Please note, that there is nothing called random in programming, because the programmer know the formula codes. Just because the programming logics are kept secret the numbers appear to be random and are accepted to be random.
