Slot Reel Keeps Spinning

3 replies • Last post

While playing some slots I notice that one reel keeps spinning for a few seconds longer. Is this due to a bad internet connection or something? I can't figure out why it only happens once in a while.

Any thoughts?

that's weird.. I only had noticed all reels keep spinning faster and a little bit longer than usual before it finally stop. I do have turbo active boost on one of my anti-spyware.

I have definitely had that happen. I think it is the internet connect, but sometimes I think it is also when the casino gets busy. I find that happening during some tournaments, so that is a busy time. It has happened to be several times, but not for a while.

The most common explanation is a busy casino server (i.e. lots of simultaneous players). A simplified explanation of the way the software works is like this:

1. You press spin. Immediately your software or flash game starts spinning the reels.
2. Your software sends a message to the casino server to say "we're spinning now, send us the result".
3. It waits for the server to respond. This is where you're seeing the delay.
4. The server sends back a message that tells your software whether you won anything.
5. Your software displays the reels corresponding to the result from the server.
