Would I Have Hit the Jackpot Too?

16 October 2011

I took your slot class at the WWC. I remember you saying that the number generator in the slot machine is constantly "churning" numbers and that it is possible to hit back-to-back jackpots.

My question is if someone walks up to the slot machine and puts in $100 and spins four times and hits the jackpot, would I have hit the same jackpot had I put the same amount into the machine and hit the same sequence of plays? It is not the number of hits but the timing of the spin that activates the numbers generator.

Therefore, I would have had to hit the spin buttons at the exact same times as the other player to win. Also my win may not have been the same jackpot as the other player's.

Is my assumption correct or am I missing something?

DBR,

You are exactly right in your assumption. In order to get the same results as another person, you have to hit the spin button at EXACTLY the same instant as that person. This is true for slot machines and video poker machines. They work exactly the same. I have left one VP machine and moved to the one next to it only to have another person sit at my previous machine and hit a royal on the very first draw. Many people would be tempted to say that it was their royal -- but it is not. There is no way you would have hit the draw button at exactly the same instant as the other person.

Best of luck in all your casino and life endeavors.
