Plastic Head Posted March 9, 2008 Share Posted March 9, 2008 I have now satisfied myself as to the truth about these machines in bookies. I have seen people lose their house and the business playing these "gambling" machines. I myself have lost a good few quid but nothing I couldn't manage without. Make no mistake, these are fixed to be even more in the bookies favour in the 1 in 37 that a casino would win. They are only random in so much as one of the numbers produced that you lose on (or maybe win if selected) will be random. The "favourite" in any spin will have around a 20% less chance of winning that a straight 36/1 on the machines I have "insider" knowledge of. Thats the equivalent of a 4/1 fav in a horse race having a 5/1 chance of winning, the outcome being determined by software. For example, if you bet red, the black number selected that you lose on will be random. The number the machine returns for any spin is certainly NOT RANDOM in the true sense of the word. In the short term you may win on these but in the meduim term you will certainly not. You will of course lose long-term in a casino but at least you get a fair crack of the whip. I hope anyone who plays these machines will take my well intentioned advice and stop playing them. Have a bet on the horses or the greyhounds. Or even the football god forbid. Don't waste your "well earned" trying to win on these coz you will not. If you wish to play them for "entertainment" then fine. If you want the boring detail on how these machines are rigged to work send me a message, but I warn you it's dull and complicated. There is a conspiracy of silence as to how these machines work and the government seems loathed to grasp the issue. Bookies will always casually dismiss any suggestion of fixing on FOBT's...yeah course they would. It's Cheltenham next week gets your bets on there, !!!!!
