Are Casino Games Rigged?

are casino games rigged

One of the primary concerns of online gamblers is whether casino games are rigged. This is an understandable concern; players want to ensure they play at an authentic and fair casino that offers equal odds for success. Luckily, there are ways to ensure this occurs and this article will explore them further.

No, casino games are not “rigged”, in the sense of having been deliberately programmed to give casinos an unfair edge over players. House advantages exist within all casino games – card, dice and video poker alike – which means casinos would never intentionally do anything that puts their profits at risk.

However, to more accurately ask this question it would be more accurate to say whether casino games are “rigged”, in that they’ve been programmed to give a false sense of their odds. While it can be hard to know for certain if any slot machine has been designed this way or not – however there may be signs that a casino may be rigged including when exact payouts are not listed and/or auditing by an established governing body isn’t happening for example – both may indicate things may not be quite right.

There have been instances in which casino games have been found to be rigged. Most often this involves manipulating two specific metrics – return to player (RTP) and random number generators. RTP measures how much of each dollar wagered will return back to players on average; any fraudulent machine would manipulate this rate artificially so as to increase odds in its favor.

This is done using algorithms that produce sequences of numbers that appear as though they could be winning combinations, in order to draw in players by giving false hopes that something exciting might happen – although, unfortunately, such misleading programming of slot machines in Nevada is illegal.

One type of more serious rigging involves directly impacting player chances to win. While this form is difficult to detect, such as in the American Coin scandal where slot machines were programmed not to pay out upon being triggered by high value symbols; eventually this form was banned in Nevada and must always be kept in mind when gambling online.
