Myths and Facts of gambling


Some slot machines are hot and due for a big jackpot. 


The fact is that slot machines have Random Number Generators (RNGs) inside them which ensure that each spin produces a random result. A machine is just as likely to have back-to-back winning combinations and big payouts as it is to have back-to-back losing combinations and losses.
