There are plenty of myths and misconceptions when it comes to how Australian pokies work. A poker machine essentially consists of a range of parts including external and internal parts. These include the video screen, buttons, cabinet, top box and belly panel, coin tray, and note and coin acceptor for the external parts, while the motherboard, EPROM, meters, cables, speakers, and more for the internals.
What happens after you press spin?
In a poker machine, you will notice that each symbol positions is associated with a different number. For example, you can find around 15 symbols per reel, but it could range anywhere from tens to even thousands of symbol positions. While these positions feature different numbers, you can find even more lower paying symbols on each of the reels than higher paying ones. For example, a low paying symbol might be located in positions 3, 5, 7, and 9 on reel one.
The moment you press the SPIN button, the EPROM will then select five numbers randomly. The reels will then spin and will stop after a set duration. If you’re lucky enough and it happens to stop on your selection positions, then you will be awarded any resulting wins. You are also given the option of doubling up your win. The pay back percentage of Australian pokies is controlled by the symbol positioning with the help of mathematical testing and analysis.
One important thing to keep in mind is that the symbol positions will never change, and the casino won’t even have the ability to change the game’s overall payout percentage. In order to do so, they will have to install a new EPROM. Depending on the game type, the amount of payout would vary as well.
Online Australian pokies work similarly with actual poker machines. However, the difference is that instead of using an EPROM, the RNG and game logic are stored separately on a remote server from where the game connects to.
