Online Casino: How it Works

Virtual slot machines (video slots) of online casinos are provided by software developers or providers. The most famous of them are Microgaming, Novomatic, Playtech, NetEnt, BetSoft, Amatic. Video slot providers are responsible for ensuring that the results of slot machine drawings are random. Honest online casinos only provide their users with access to the slot interface and do not influence the player’s chances of winning.

The results of the draw in online casinos are calculated by a random number generator. The computer program continuously performs calculations, making the outcome of the reels’ rotation unpredictable. Serious providers provide data on the return percentage (RTP) and volatility for each slot.

Although advertising often offers “profitable slot machines,” the reality is not so generous towards risk-seekers: the RTP will never be more than 100%, and a lot also depends on the settings of the slots. And the company (which, let us remind you, is not subject to Russian law and, therefore, is not responsible for it) can configure them in any way it likes.


No one can (and will not) guarantee the player that the real winning percentage fully corresponds to what is indicated on the casino website or in the characteristics of the machine.

Even if you managed to win once, you should look for something other than a trend in this. Online casinos are a highly profitable type of business, and the total amount of winnings will always be less than the total amount of losses of players.

Casino bonuses: are they really profitable?

Online casinos offer their players bonuses for registration, first deposit of a gaming account or active play. Beginners may think that this is a great way to get money and withdraw it quickly, but is it true?

In more than 90 percent of cases, the bonus must be wagered, that is, the amount received must be wagered in the slots multiple times before you are eligible to withdraw funds. Often, this cannot be done without depositing your funds. Only occasionally do casinos offer bonuses that you don’t need to wager, but let’s be honest: you won’t win much thanks to them.

Possible problems with payments

The law banning money transfers to illegal gambling operators came into force in 2018. Illegal gambling organizers must be understood primarily as online casinos and bookmakers that have not received the appropriate license in Russia.

At the beginning of 2019, the Federal Tax Service of Russia began compiling a list of persons and companies to which Russian banks and payment systems are prohibited from transferring money. This list is being updated, new companies are being added to it, on behalf of which online casinos and unlicensed bookmakers can operate on the RuNet. Problems may arise with transferring funds to such companies and receiving money from them. Accordingly, despite promises of fast payouts, withdrawing money from online casinos may not be easy.

Gambling addiction is often also called gambling addiction or gaming addiction. It is a severe psychological disorder and pathological gambling, which can lead to very unpleasant consequences.

Such addiction is one of the popular topics of conversation among ardent opponents of gambling. Not all of them are well versed in the subject, so it is worth knowing that the cause of more than 80% of recorded cases of gambling addiction is said to be an addiction to slots and slot machines. The disorder makes the urge to play uncontrollable, and often, the fundamental values ​​of life are sacrificed: work, family, relationships with others, etc.
