There are stories foretold that causes some people to prevent certain things or ways in their lives. It is out of occurrences that sums up to supposedly wrong beliefs or notion, disregarding reason and knowledge. Although these are not proven, it is followed by many because as they say, there is no harm in doing precautions. Just like in our daily lives, there are also superstitions in gambling, specifically in playing slot machine. There are numerous beliefs that are still being practiced like earing the lucky shirt, bringing a rabbit tail or only placing wagers on certain days. Here are some more myths that are waiting to be revealed: Long Hours of Play in a Certain Machine There are times that even if you have stayed for several hours on a slot machine, nothing happens. But once you leave it, the next player gets lucky. This is where the belief that a slot machine will hit the jackpot after playing long consecutive hours. This convinced some people that they would have won if they opted to stay a little longer. But in reality, it is just a missed chance. It has nothing to do with the number of times a person plays. It purely relies on the timing of pulling the lever or pushing the button. Slot Machine that Just Paid Out Would Not Hit a Jackpot Soon Although a slot machine has just just made a payout, this doesn't necessarily mean that it would not purposely hit a jackpot anytime soon. This is in the same sense as the same seat would give you a large payout. This belief came from the logic that machines don't allow people to win for a while so that it can make up for the loss it just made. However, slot machines are in fact programmed to hit jackpots based on the ratios over millions of turns. Therefore, people has an equal chance of winning a payout after one has already been paid out as they do before it has been won. Playing One Coin at a Time Gives Higher Chance of Winning You will often see in a casino a person with a bucket of coins but you will notice that he is not making the maximum bet. Instead, he plays one coin at a time. That is because of the myth that the quantity of coins gambled during a turn influence the chance of payouts a machine makes. The apparent part here is that they have higher probability that they would hit small payouts because you'll get more turns in playing one coin at a time. These are just samples of the superstitions that some people still do nowadays. You will actually find it funny when you learn more about this.
