In general yes. Each machine has static RAM that is kept alive by a battery. As long as the battery doesn't go dead it will remember all of its setup.



I've been chasing a specific progressive for almost a year. Even though the machines are off, I expect them to come up at the same amount. I know the amount the day they shut down.

It also wouldn't surprise me if they took an accounting of all the progressives before they shut banks of machines down.



We did write down the progressives at our properties.

I can tell you my new install of WinCraps thinks nothing of a dozen point 7-outs in a row to start off my day.

If you turn off a slot machine (especially some 30 year-old classic type) for several weeks to save on your electric bill, would the machine still remember its progressive totals (mini, minor, major etc) when you turn it back on?

I have seen machines move around casinos and when they were back up they had the same progressive values. Some casinos also have a slot attendant that walks around, usually at night, and inputs all progressive numbers in an iPad. I would guess they did this before they closed. Probably depends on jurisdiction.

I believe the software that's built in to all modern machines synchs up in a way in which it doesn't matter where the machine physically is located.

Progressives that control more than a single machine use what is called a progressive controller which is a separate piece of equipment,.

Start off? It would surely end mine,

Hey
The trick is how the games work. For each bet at which you win, the casino pays slightly less than if the chances were equal.
