And all wheels should be fairly balanced. Like Wheel of Fortune Slot.



Why do you think the wheel of Fortune wheel is balanced? Seems like a lot of small prizes land there too.

But, I thought it was common theory that if they SHOW you what was behind the Babies you didn't choose,(Fu Du Lae, 88 Fortunes) it's Legitimate. If they DON'T show you what is behind the Babies you didn't choose(Good Fortune), it's rigged.

I worded that terribly. I meant wheels (like the one on Wheel of Fortune) should be balanced. It's not balanced and it pisses me off.

I hate to tell ya, but just about everything about a slot machine after you hit the button is fakey. :)

True. But some fakery is worse than others. A girlfriend who likes a guy may put up a little more appreciation than it deserves with an over-small diamond because she knows it's all he can afford but she probably won't be so happy when he pretends it's an expensive rock, one of kind, and says he spent 4 times more than she knows it's worth.

Huh? And here I thought you'd go with the CLASSIC 'fakery' that Axel always hears... "Wait, I thought you said 6 inches...?!?!"

The only thing faker than that is "I have read and agree to the terms and conditions."
Playing it correctly means you've already won.

Btw how come no one marketed the "Don Rickles" slot machine. All it does is not pay anything and insults you.

Thatís true. I always design games that are not rigged, and I like to show whatís behind the unpicked items. Iím certain there are regulations pertaining to this in some jurisdictions.


How do games with mechanical weighted wheels work?

I forget which game it was, but I got the bonus wheel spin and it landed on a $50k jackpot, like completely stopped. People were standing behind me and started screaming. At the very last second, it clicked 1 slot over to the $5 prize :(

Thatís crappy. I would expect it to slow down, but not so slow that it would be physically impossible to reach the next spot if it were an actual wheel.

The outcome is predetermined based on different weights for each slice. Then, the servo motor stops at the right spot.
I heart Crystal Math.

some of the slot machines, maybe not that one, don't have predetermined picking rounds.
