    Right so i’ve been playing bonanza and DHV a lot recently and i mean a LOT! Had quite a few bonuses, but nothing major on them for a long time but playing at all kinda of stakes depending on the game and balance.

    It got me to wondering, do the slots somehow have a way of remembering the player via their IP address so it is consistent across casinos? In the same manner that a bonus hunt works and the game remembers where you last left off. Do you think the games have a way of knowing how much has been staked/wagered over time and pays out according to that somehow?

    I know i sound like a bit of a crazy man saying this, but just wondered and the world of slot alogrithms fascinate me into how they are configured. But i’ll never know and just sit here waiting for that massive win that will never come

    No they dont have a memory or track player IPs etc. Every spin completely random and independent of one another.

    I agree that maybe not tracking IP addresses, but there has to be a level of information that is stored for statistical purposes and to be able to calculate and tell a player what their RTP is on a specific game as is the case on Videoslots.

    Yes, I agree the spins are random and independent to an extent, but there is probably some deeply embedded notion of knowing what the previous spin was, but don’t think it would or should influence the following spin. If that makes sense.

    So think there is a lot more to slots than just saying they don’t have a memory. Because they most certainly do. Even just to remember your last spin for a bonus hunt.

    Im not saying they dont have a memory, just saying each spin is independent of the proir. showing your rtp on a game is separate. you can get 3rd party software that does this for you, its a simple tracking. https://www.slottracker.com/ does this for you, i used to use it.

    As for bonus hunts remember your last spin, its more a server thing to detect that the user has left a game open and to restart when they open the game.
