Of course they are! As much as you have heard that the machines deceive or are manipulated, the most modern slot machines are equipped with an RTP system, which is a microchip that decides from performing thousands of mathematical algorithms, to give the final result of figures that will appear on your reels during your games.

Except for the deadly radiation, I think they are safe.

Evidently, they are not safe!

They can cause injuries to knees, and then there's the ever-present threat of RSI!

Probably a good way for spreading a virus. Those little Ol ladies are just covered in germs.
My goal of being well informed conflicts with my goal of remaining sane.

As in physical saftey? I don't know the tip over risk. But, I imagine they are safer than vending machines (due to generally being smaller and less vertical).

As for mentally safe, they cause far more addiction than any other form of gambling (and generally consume far more money), by far the most mentally unsafe form of casino gambling for those with poor self control.
I forget the stat, but I beleive slot machines are the cause of more suicides than any other form of gambling.

Slot machines are designed to be addictive and mentally rewarding, by minimizing perception of losses and glorifying even small wins, to trigger the proper pleasure centers of the brain.

Well, if you are dumb enough to compulsively gamble on slots I doubt you are the type who mind about paying other sorts of idiot taxes.

:DD Doubt this happens all the time. But yeah in the physical sense don't punch the machine, in the logical sense don't bet more than you're willing to lose. It's just a machine.
