The cycle of winning at online slots
Let's talk about the cycles of winning in online slots. Probably, all experienced players had this situation more than once: after a big win, there is a chain of "empty" spins which takes a part of this win. Many players believe several big wins will occur after the empty spins.
Many regular players probably noticed that sooner or later there is a situation when all slots start to give winning like in a paradise. There is a chain of big winning in the usual spins, in bonuses - everywhere. Usually, it would last only one session.
Online slots have different length of the cycles. Long cycle-length allows a player to win more money - but losses can last longer. In this article, we will discuss the concept of winning cycles in online slots.

How do the slots operate?
Let's begin our research by exploring winning cycles and the principles behind slot machines working. "The length of winning cycle" is directly related to the number of active players "for the real money" in a separate slot in a particular online casino (or a casino network).
We want to explain in detail how stakes are calculated, and the prize-pool is formed. Software is usually stored on the providers’ servers. The online casinos are only transferring money and organising bonus promotions for their players. They do not have access to the slot machines settings or do not have any other way to interfere with their work. All settings are managed by the company developing slots.
Gambling at software, all players are playing in same slot machines, but the prize pool is accumulated in each online casino separately. Read more about the prize pool theory here. For example, Tornado: Farm Escape slot - for the cycle will be counted only bets of all players in a particular online casino (we suggest Fastpay). Learn more about the basic principles of slots on the next page:
Maximum of pay-out
Usually, the more coins are declared as the maximum win, the longer the cycle of winning will be. A slot machine in which you can win about a million coins (for example, Wish Master slot) will have a much longer cycle than a slot machine with a maximum pay-out up to 50,000 coins (for example, Starburst slot).
The amount of winning on the slot with the long cycle will be much more significant. Let's say Starburst slot pays "the prize pool" every 1000 spins and Wish Master slot machine - every 10,000 spins. The amount of winning in Wish Master slot will be ten times more than in Starburst.
How can you identify in which point of the cycle the slot is located at the moment? In this case, it will help our strategy of testing slot machines in free mode.
While testing in demo mode, it is essential to layout precisely the values of the stakes that you are going to play "for the real money". The better you learn (the described tactics of testing), the more accurately identify (the place in the cycle), the more money you can win. After all, the game is underway between the players. Only 2-5% of each bet goes to the casino. You can even get a positive mathematical expectation of winning and use these strategies together.
