State-of-the-art slot machines

“Modern slot machines are programmed for fast, continuous, and repeat betting. Players insert plastic, not coins; they tap buttons or touch a screen rather than pull levers; they place bets in denominations ranging from a penny to a hundred dollars on multiple lines that spin across a screen with each rapid tap of the button. The laws of pure chance or probability no longer dictate wins and losses on slot machines. Modern slots are hooked up to a central server that collects player information, preferences, and speed of play and has the capacity to program each machine to each player’s style. The trend in slot design is to provide a slow and smooth ‘ride,’ with small wins that are less than the amount bet, but nonetheless encourage repeat bets and prolonged ‘time on machine.'” — Four Reasons Christians Should Oppose Casinos
