Have you ever wondered what the most optimum time is to try your luck with a slot machine? The question of whether slots pay more at night or during the day comes up very often. This is fair considering how popular the game is, and as players, we want to do all we can to ensure that we win.
The general consensus is that slots do pay more at night but that’s only because more people are on the casino floor in the evenings. This does not mean that slot machines don’t pay in the day. It simply means that people generally visit the casino, or log on (if online) later in the day as opposed to morning or early afternoon.
We should also consider the fact that the majority of slot players play as a hobby and most likely have a full 9-5 job that requires their attention during the day. This means the only free time they might have is in the evenings and some evidentially choose to spend that time playing slots.
What is the Best Time to Play Slots?
Statistics show that most people play slots between 8 pm and 5 am. And, while the majority play this time because it’s when they are available, others believe that slots are the loosest during this time of day. They also believe that the payout rate of slot games is better at this time.
But, not every player who chooses to play at night, wins. Whether the slot actually pays out or not will depend on whether you are lucky enough to win.
We also have to consider random number generators and the role they have in the payout rate of slot machines. Random number generators are used and programmed to decide which symbols appear on the reels during every spin. This means that the results per spin depend on programmed software, not human decisions.
Not much is known about how RNG’s come up with the results that it produces, or what the factors are that it considers. But, we do know that time of day isn’t one of those factors.
So, what can we make of this? It’s safe to say that when you choose to play slot games it doesn’t matter because there’s no guarantee or proof that they in fact pay more at a specific time. It all comes down to when you are available to play and whether or not you are lucky enough to win at that time.
