I play at an online casino that offers random cash drops. I am wondering if anyone knows how the mechanics work, specifically, whether spinning faster increases the odds of getting a drop.

It seems to me like if the drops are tied to spins, so each spin has x chance of getting a drop, then it makes sense to spin fast, but that if they are set to drop randomly at any given time, and any player spinning at the time has a chance to win, then playing slower to decrease house edge and variance would be the best play.

Does anyone know how these drops work.

I have no idea how it works but if I was developing it I would bias based on total bet amount not number of spins. This way you are likely giving more to your best customers.

How is it possible to bias? Some kind of probability table?

We had a program at a lot of our bars that we would give random cash giveaways to anyone gambling at the time of the drawing. What I would do is give one raffle ticket to each person for every dollar that they played that day. That way the bigger gamblers got more raffle tickets and therefore a better chance of winning.

The drops are awarded as multiples of the bet, ranging from 10x to 500x, so bigger bets are rewarded, but I'm not sure whether increasing spins per minute is rewarded or not..
