When pokie slots are in a drought are they “due” for a big win?

No, when the pokies seem to be running cold, it doesn’t mean anything other than you’ve been unlucky. While wins and losses balance out to the preset payout ratio over millions of spins, there’s no mathematical basis for a machine being “due.” Things won’t turn around simply because you’ve been unlucky. Each spin is random and the machine doesn’t know or remember that you are “due” a big win.

Winning streaks can go on for an extended period of time, and losing streaks can even go on longer. There is nothing that a player can do to change the outcome. Touching the buttons a certain way or in a certain sequence, or touching the reels on the screen, will not change the game’s outcome. It’s all luck and, generally speaking, the odds are against the player.
