yes i believe it is predetermined. what it is meant to pay out is what it is going to pay out. i was using the turbo spin trying to hit a jp that was at
17,000 . i was thinking that even though someone might be betting a 1.00 or higher if i played the turbo spins at .20 cents maybe i would have a chance at hitting the jp. it still didnt work for me. i still seen the jp hit before my eyes and i was doing the turbo. but it was worth a shot.
HUNTS is entirely correct, as soon as the spin button is pressed the server receives requests for the spin result and generates the random stop positions, from which the win evaluation is then determined.
So the turbo option speeds up game play, but has effect on the result.
As far as the random jackpot goes, the amount bet certainly comes into it, but remember that these are not range-based random jackpots. They do not reset and calculate at that time what their next trigger level is going to be ( jackpots that operate within a range would then award the jackpot to the player that contributed the 1c to take it to the level that had been determined at reset, so seeing a jackpot go off while playing yourself would be a matter of the one that got away).
The RTG random jackpots are simply a chance to win checked at the end of the paid game, being 1 in (n), adjusted proportionately against bet. e.g.: For a player on 20c it might be 1 in a million, for a player on $1, 1 in 200,000 etc.
Still the one that got away in terms of the jackpot resetting, but not because someone won it in the manner a range-based jackpot would function.
Hmm, so the size of the bet does matter as far as RJs are concerned. I am sure I saw somewhere that says the size of the bet does not matter and that was from a casino rep.
Strange - I've always understood that the larger bets have more opportunities. That being said, perhaps what the casino rep was trying to say is that any spin could win a jackpot regardless of the denomination or number of coins.
I enjoy reading Dogboy's posts - he explains the mechanics of slots very simply.
