Ok, we can admit it, sometimes we go a little over the top. Kind of like when we lit a slot machine on fire to debunk the classic myth of the “hot” slot machine.
When someone says a machine is “hot”, they mean it’s on a winning streak. But once you break down how a slot machine really works, it becomes clear that “streaks” are nothing more than back-to-back wins that happened by chance. Even the most experienced slot player can’t predict what the next spin will bring, because each spin creates a brand-new result determined by the random number generator inside the machine.
