What Are The Odds Of Winning On A Slot Machine?

If you want to know the odds of winning while playing any slot machine, you need to consider two things – the RTP of the game… and pure luck. RTP stands for return to player, which is expressed as a percentage. The higher the percentage, the better the return will be. However, the RTP is worked out over a lengthy time, which means your experience of playing that machine could be very different to the RTP given. Yes, the odds are better if you play a machine with a 98% RTP compared to one with a 92% RTP, but only if you play for ages.

With that said, you will never know whether the next spin will be lucky or not. Either it will win you a prize or it won’t, and that is a 50/50 chance. Just as you could flip a coin and get either heads or tails (the odds of it landing on its edge are infinitesimal), you could take a spin on a slot and get a lucky winning spin or a losing spin.

There is also luck. In theory, you could sit down and take your first spin on a progressive slot machine and win thousands, walking away well into profit on that one spin. Of course, that isn’t likely to occur, but it could do – which is one of the reasons why people love the thrill of playing slot games. Always make sure you have a budget for playing that you are happy with, and that you stop when you have reached the end of it.
