Online slots become more popular every year, and with that, the quality, graphics and jackpots have increased. Gamers can now find themselves spoilt for choice when it comes to deciding the site, game type and theme style they want to use. But with that, the number of myths surrounding online gaming slots has also increased. Here at Gold Rush Slots, has many advantages and we want to ensure you are equipped with all the facts and feel confident that your gaming experience is safe. So, we set off on a fact-finding mission to debunk these myths for good.  

1. Slot Cheats & Manipulation

The Myth: Online slots are manipulated by technology to guarantee specific outcomes. 

The Fact: All reputable online casinos are fully regulated in the same way as physical casinos by the UK Gambling Commission; therefore, they are unable to manipulate the outcome of the game without their license being revoked.  

2. Playing at a Certain or Specific Time of Day

The Myth: Some players are under the impression that playing slots at certain times of the day will increase or decrease your chances of winning.

The Fact: Most slots use Random Number Generators (RNG). This is a coding system which ensures that the symbols are randomly selected throughout the entire day. Therefore, it makes no difference in the time of day in which you play the slot, the sequence is totally random.  

3. The AutoPlay Mode

The Myth: if you play using the AutoPlay mode then your chances of winning are much lower. 

The Fact: Playing slots with AutoPlay has zero effect on the outcome of the sequence, however, it is important to note that AutoPlay is much faster and therefore if you are on a losing streak or do not have your settings applied appropriately, you could see your bankroll decline very quickly. Therefore, you should always make sure you understand the game and the settings before you begin using the AutoPlay function.   

4. A Win Must Be Due

The Myth: A win is surely due, as I have been playing the game a while and I haven't won anything significant so far.

The Fact: Due to the Random Number Generators (RNG) this is not the case; you could win big in a straight row or spend hours on a losing streak. Unfortunately, slot games are never ‘due’ a win.

5. It is Impossible to Increase My Chances of Winning

The Myth: Because of the Random Number Generators (RNG) and the element of luck, I can't do anything to increase the chance of me winning.  

The Fact: This is difficult as online slots are random and there is an element of luck. However, you can check the following things:

  • Return to Player (RTP) values: The higher the value, the higher your chance of winning.
  • Greater number of pay lines: More pay lines equals more ways to win, therefore a higher chance of winning
  • A bonus feature: Triggering a bonus feature is often an effective way to up your winnings quickly.

To conclude, online slot machines have the same chances, opportunities and restrictions as real slot machines. By understanding online slots, you can increase your chances of winning, but the site itself cannot affect or manipulate the outcome of your spins.
