Correct



A bit of a combination of both. For online slots it usually works like this:

Each Casino (or each slot provider, or both) have their own accredited Random Number Generator (RNG) which will serve all of that Casino's games (or all of that game providers games). Each game will then have its own 'engine', which is where the logic for that slot is stored.

When someone spins the request goes to the game engine for the selected game, the engine then requests random number from the RNG. The RNG returns numbers to the engine, that turns them into the results for the spin, and they are then sent to the game client to be displayed.



Again, slightly a combination of both (or at least, it can be). For an individual slot, the results will be generated in real time (when you press spin) in the game engine, however, it is common for the RNG to pre-generate a pool of random numbers rather than make them one at a time (it is a lot quicker). This depends on the particular RNG implementation. Some will do this, some will not (see my post here for an example of an RNG implementation). Regardless of whether the RNG maintains a pool of numbers or not, has no effect on your results or the randomness of them :)



No problem :)

@trancemonkey must be ecstatic as he sits there and works out the cramps while finally having a break from typing :D

Unfortunately it doesn't quite work like that. The 15 x 10,000 won't be offset by the 5 x 324 due to the incrementing multiplier. It has an exponential effect. If they were to make the odds truly 1 in 9, the RTP of the game would be well over 100% :)


so basically the provider is giving you a 1/200 shot of hitting the dream start and masquerading it as a 1/9 shot

sounds about right !!!!!

god forbid the GC actually ever catch up with the bullshit that goes on....

next you will tell me the 50/50 on WWTBAM is not 50/50!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

(joke! btw) as im guessing thats about 1/9

Yeh, pretty much hehe.

As for 50/50? I wouldn't know, I always walk away on a 50/50 haha :p
