Hi all

I've been doing some research on slot machines and read a bit of information about it. I understand that there are lots of blank stops on virtual reels on any slot machine to balance payout percentage, but what I don't understand is, how virtual blank stop is displayed on physical reel? I've never seen a blank slot coming from a physical reel, does this mean that the software is doing some trick to display a non-winning symbol in case of a blank stop?

Thanks

No. The blank spot is actually the border between two symbols. If the symbols were printed smaller, it will be a more obvious blank.
Superstitions are silly, childish, irrational rituals, born out of fear of the unknown. But how much does it cost to knock on wood? 😁 Note that the same could be said for Religion. I.E. Religion is nothing more than organized superstition. 🤗

On a physical reel game there are typically 22 physical stops possible with 11 of them being symbols and 11 of them being blanks (the area between the visible symbols).
