I've seen a lot of methods on YouTube that fool statistical models or exploit backdoors in
fruit machines so you can always profit. I've never tested them, but as a kid I was always fascinated
about how I could keep playing these machines without putting in more money by finding out
the cheat codes built into the game by the makers.
A long time ago I come across some interesting information I would like to share..
To test how dishonest the machine is, they run the machine under an emulator.
What an emulator lets you do is save the machines state and test the various outcomes for yourself.
For example you might get 3 golden bells and the button to gamble lights up.
You instantly think there's a choice here - I can gamble and win more/lose or I can stick and take the win.
So at the point you get 3 bells you click a button on the emulator and then can test if you will win or not.
To stick means you already have won (Take the money and run) however the other 2 options are
They illustrate that the machines behaviour is pre determined i.e. it _will_ rip you off no matter
which buttons you press as the result is already fixed..
Also they use mind control tricks on you :-
This RAM file demonstrates the "hold dilemma". On the second spin, two cherries will appear on the second and third reels, with the option to hold. If
you elect NOT to hold the cherries, a cherry will spin in on Reel 1 on the next turn, leading the player to believe holding the cherries would have
yielded a win. However, if you DO hold the cherries, a red 7 will spin in on the first reel instead.
Something to tell your mates about when they pour their coins into those slots...enjoy....
