RNG Jackpot Question

    I don't know if this has already been answered in the stacks of theories and facts about RNG already on the forum but I will ask anyway.

    I have been playing MGS slots for many years now and I have never had 5 wilds on a 1 to 30 line slot where this usually pays out some kind of jackpot.

    My question... is there one RNG value(one ball in the huge ball pit if you like) that represents the 5 wilds jackpot or is there an RNG value for each available winning line of 5 wilds?

    For instance a 9 line slot would that have 9 numbers representing jackpot lines and a 15 line slot would that have 15 numbers and so on.

    It depends on how you believe the slot works (not all slots work the same way - we can be 100% certain of that!).

    Personally I believe that MG slots work by the RNG producing a random position for each reel to land in.
    That being the case, the odds of hitting the 5 symbols required to hit a jackpot is still many millions to one against.

    Take Thunderstruck for example; We know the reels have 30, 30, 30, 30 & 44 symbols respectively, with one wild per reel.
    So the total number of different reel combinations is 30 x 30 x 30 x 30 x 44 = 35,640,000
    There are 9 win-lines, so divide that by 9 and you get the odds of hitting 5 wilds = 1 in 3,960,000
    Yes - one in 3.96 MILLION spins.
    And yet people DO hit it - I should know, I've had it once myself! (On Spring Break - and exact clone).

    The only MG Progressives that I have exact figures for on SlotBeaters.com are:
    King Cashalot: 1 in 7,719,000
    Major Millions (5 reel version): 1 in 7,484,400

    Just work out how long it would take you to play 7 million spins - and you'll begin to realise just how unlikely hitting a major progressive is.

    Sorry - didn't answer your specific question!
    IMPO, the latter.
