There are millions of people who love to play on the slot machines and hope that just one turn of those mystical reels will turn them into an instant millionaire. But what are the odds of actually winning on those machines?

Well, it all depends on how the reels are set up. There are typical setups of these reels but there are some that are slightly varied. Slot machine reels are set up with two different stops. There is the virtual stop, which happens inside the machine, and there is the actual stop, which is the stop that the player will see appear on the reels. Each actual stop may be equivalent to more than just one actual stop. For example, an empty space on the actual reel may be equal to three virtual stops.

In a slot machine that has been given a typical weight, the stop that will pay the highest amount (usually called “the jackpot stop”,) is equal to only one virtual stop. Because there are sixty-four possible stops, this makes the chances of one reel stopping on that one spot one in sixty-four. That will give the player one symbol. To make three of these same jackpot symbols appear each individual reel will need to stop on that same spot. This makes the chances decrease even more, as each reel will have to hit these same odds.

So simply put, each reel has a one in sixty –four chance of landing on the jackpot spot, making the chances of hitting it big on a slot machine 1 in 262,144.

To dispel any mistaken theories that casinos can make slot machines suddenly stop paying out big payouts, it’s important to know that the odds of any given slot machine are built into that particular computer chip inside the slot machine. These odds cannot be changed unless the chip is physically taken out of the slot machine and replaced with another.
