Hi CL Members,
When you go to a brick and mortar casino you have an entire selection of a specific slot to choose from. If one machine is not paying you have the option to move on to another machine. But do we have that same option when we are playing online slots?
At any given time there is a group of players playing the same slot. Some players are winning and some players are losing. So would it make a difference if you had a lousy machine to click off and go back in. Would it be another machine? Or if you just hit a couple of nice wins and you feel the machine is done giving, could you leave and come back to a new machine?
I know that when you return to a machine your last coin denomination and number of lines played are stored but that does not necessarily mean it's the same machine you played last time.
Has anyone ever clicked off and gone back in and had better luck?
As far as I know, online slots on every software platform I am familiar with have the same setting for everyone in the casino. Some softwares allow the operator to change the payout rate but that applies to everyone in the casino equally. So everyone is effectively playing on the same machine at the same time. The only kind of exception to this that I can think of is that some casinos have different bet limits for different classes of players.
Always play it safe! Consult our list of rogue casinos and warnings before depositing at a new casino.

I have always wondered this very thing. I can't say that reloading the slot game as ever made a difference. Now I know why, thanks Ed.
That is wild to know. So if there are 50 people playing on a slot we are all basically sharing the same one. It would be nice to know how many players are on a machine at once. Wonder why no casino ever displays that.
Well yeah, depends on how you look at it. Either 50 people sharing the same machine, or 50 people playing 50 identically configured machines. Doesn't really make a difference.
I know Intercasino does, or at least did on their older software, show who was playing what. They used to have a lobby that looked like a real casino lobby and when you moused over the games you could see the usernames of the people playing at the slots or tables. From memory I think Casino Club does something similar, or maybe has a "what people are playing now" list.
