Not sure that's strictly true, as a machine or software programme's not really capable of being truly random, based on chance, luck and whatever external factors.

So it would need to be programmed to follow certain algorithms to 'select' certain results from a pool available. So I'd say they're pseudo-random at best
So Randomly rigged with a hint of compensation.

I can't comment on the validity of this info but it makes, I thought, interesting reading. *snip*

But its not making any sense.
Thats an upper case letter, and yet its listed as a "Low - A"
So can we really trust them when they say thats a blue goat?
I mean, the goat is not even blue.

Please don't link to outside forums; rather, import (copy/paste) info in if needed :thumbsup:

At a high level it was suggesting slot networks profile players & their play to determine how to distribute funds. There's no such thing as a free lunch after all.

Personally I see a regular pattern in my own play that goes win-lose-win a % of loss back-lose (rinse & repeat)
I'm also quite conscious of the common tease or win as reward for heading for bust town at your regular stake rather than reducing it or walking to encourage further play/deposit. Obviously the outcome you get there isn't guaranteed.

what bugs me is when watching steamer play a game and get a bonus in 5 or so spins and you hear them say " It rolled the bonus in fast not expecting it to pay much" god if I ever get a feature within 5 spins I am shouting in my head "this is gonna be epic" its just something that bugs me alot, every bonus whether it dropa in the first 5 spins or over 1k spins should have the same potential each bonus, not just based on the actual amount of spin to get it, How many of you have spent well over 1k spins to get a bonus on bonanza knowing full well its going to pay around 25x? so in answer for me with my play all spins are random.

I agree about the streamer part. I was watching Roshtein last week... This guy hit at least 10 bonuses within 100 spins on dog house, it was unreal. On top of that he was duo slotting another game 'mysterious' something and hitting back to back bonuses on that.

I'm lucky if I hit a bonus within 100 spins, on average id say it takes at least 200 spins to get 1 bonus.

I definitely think they give streamers some kind of edge, especially guys like Roshtein, and if they can alter play on an individual basis I'm sure they can do it site wide for normal players.

I know people will call bullshit, but the casino industry is shady. A lot of really scummy people in it and a lot of the businesses are run like the mob. Why would some 'regulatory' body not be susceptible to being bribed off to give a lot of these companies licenses.
