2 myths about online pokies
Every casino player has his own preferences, betting tactics and even traditional attitudes that work against them. Some players strongly believe in the impeccability of the Martingale system, other casino visitors have a passion for pokies. There are players who spent years for inventing a system to outwit pokies or roulette games.
We are going to unravel the two common myths that most pokie players believe in:
Myth #1. When a jackpot has not been taken down for a long time, it is bound to hit sooner or later. In fact, the odds of hitting a jackpot (including progressives) or other big win are the same for every spin. It makes no difference whether a jackpot was hit a day ago or a year ago. All spins are random and independent of past spins. The gaming integrity is maintained by a random number generator that randomly creates a string of digital data that is visualized as symbols and other imagery you can see on the reels. You cannot predict, persuade or bribe the generator for it to serve your interests.
Myth #2. A casino can change the odds of pokies. In theory, the payback percentage can be modified, but it involves great software re-programming efforts. Casino operators and online gaming software suppliers are different entities. The payout percentage is embedded by a pokie maker. Pokies are operated by online casinos that are barred from interfering with software program source codes. So gambling venues cannot lower down a theoretical payback percentage.
