There are two things you have to consider when looking at the possibility of winning at a slot. First of all you need to look at the payout percentage of a slot. On all licensed casinos you can find this information on the payout-page.
On Power Slots this information is found in a link on the footer of this page. You will see the total list of games with a percentage behind this. This percentage is usually around 94-98%. The 6-2% is the margin of the casino and is called ‘house edge’.
Now you might be thinking: so i always lose 2-6% of my money? Luckily no. This margin is what the slot machine does on the long run, but there is something called variance. And variance is what makes you lose or win!
When you are playing 100 spins, you could end up with 130% of your money. Another person spinning also 100 spins could end up on 67% of his or her money. In the end you have a total of 97%, but one won and the other lost.
How much this variance is, is decided for each slot alone. There are slots with a high variance, where you can lose a lot or win a lot. Or there are slots where the variance is low and you will always have around 90-110% after 100 spins.
Why play low variance slots?
Some people are looking to win big. Who doesn’t right? Unfortunately people forget that winning big also means you can lose big. On high variance slots you could not see one bonus game for 100 spins, but if you do, you will get an epic win!
But what happens if you run out of money before that bonus game starts? Then you just lost all your money. Low variance slots are suited for people that enjoy playing over winning. You can definitely come out ahead with a low variance slot, but it will take more time.
Then again, low variance slots are usually more fun since you win smaller amounts more often. What will not happen with low variance slots is that you run out of money quick.
There is an exception to the rule: progressive jackpot slots. These usually have a rather low payout percentage, cause the extra house edge is what pays for the jackpot.
A jackpot slot can still have a low variance, except of that one big jackpot win which happens only one in the million. That is extreme HIGH variance. If that is something you want to risk is up to you!
