Hello

I recently stumbled upon the Wizard of Odds and through the Facebook page to the Wizard of Vegas forum. I've lightly browsed through your website and I feel like this could be the place to post a question/some thoughts that have been bothering me for a while.

So I'll just jump straight to it:

Video slots have an RNG that is determining the outcome of each spin. Mustn't there be a "pool" of possible outcomes from which those outcomes are "drawed"? I mean there can't be an infinite number of outcomes, right?

Just recently I've been arguing with Bet365 about Thunderstuck 2 video slot and especially it's special feature "Wildstorm". I asked the casino how often on average or what is the % chance for any given spin for the feature to trigger. They refused to answer me, saying that since it's randomly generated it's impossible to tell. I find this hard to believe since how can they state that the slot's RTP is 96.50% if they can't calculate the special feature in?

I myself played the slot for a thousand spins with varying bets (30c - 1.2) and got an RTP of 97.56%, so I "beat" the RTP, which is nice. What's not nice is the fact that I didn't trigger the special feature spin even once. While I understand that a thousand spins is not much and by no means a guarantee the feature should spin it got me curious to start asking about it. So here I am. The casino didn't help me so I turned to you.

Thank you in advance for anyone reading and/or contributing.

1000 spins on most any multi line game is irrelevant. What you are looking for is a par sheet and they are not readily available and the information contained is considered confidential. Find a par sheet for the game in question and you should find the answers you ar looking for.

Thanks for your answer!

Like I said, I know 1000 spins it not relevant, I just wanted to give some perspective.

You kind of answered my question about the "pool" size already, saying that a PAR sheet would really answer my question. Thanks for that.

I'm really frustrated the casino's statement has just been like: "Impossible to tell because its random." Which is obviously not true, given that there really is a PAR sheet for each slot out there.
