How Slot Machines Work

Although they may look different all modern slot machines work the same way. All slot machines including single pay line, multiple pay line, video slots and even slot machines on the Internet share the same basic computer program.

In every slot machine is a computer chip that generates random numbers. A random number generator or "R.N.G". When you press the play button, pull the handle or click your mouse a random number is generated and this number is then converted by the machine to show you either a win or a loss.
