Are Casino Games Rigged?

As anyone who has dropped a crisp $100 bill into a slot machine and witnessed it swallow most of it has likely wondered, this question about its integrity may arise. Any business looking to generate profits must find ways to guarantee them; casinos use something called house edge to ensure that the casino always comes out ahead in any game, no matter who wins or loses. Nonetheless, many still claim that both online and brick and mortar casinos are “rigged”. In this article we explore further this claim to determine its truth.

At casinos, their purpose is to profit off players legally; not in illegal ways. Therefore, reputable casinos don’t use illegal methods like rigging games in order to maximize revenue. That doesn’t mean some unscrupulous ones won’t attempt to cheat their way to quick profits by manipulating Random Number Generators (RNG), which are mandated components of every legitimate casino game and remove luck factor thereby making quick profits easier to achieve.

Casinos can rip off players in another way by not providing timely payouts on winning bets, be it table game or slot machine. When this occurs it should be seen as a clear indication that something is amiss; thus it’s imperative to do your research prior to gambling at a casino – search out casinos with good reputations that are audited regularly by third-party audit firms.

As part of your research for a trustworthy casino, be wary of casinos that do not clearly display their payout percentages or fluctuate them frequently – this could be an indicator that they are dodgy and won’t treat players fairly in the long run.

Reading through a casino’s Terms and Conditions before playing can also be useful in detecting whether it’s rigged. Look out for red flags like charging dormancy fees or abruptly kicking players off; these could all be warning signs you should pay attention to.

Although some casinos may tamper with their RNG in order to cheat customers, this practice is highly unlikely and most legitimate casinos would never take steps that might ruin their reputation or compromise player safety. Furthermore, any attempts at game rigging would be illegal, outweighing any short-term gains that might accrue.
