Question
hi phillip as iam looking in internet about slot machines infos i ve seen some guys they tell they re technicians and iwant to ask u about something that impressed me thus someone say that newest machines have 'living memory' that adjust to every player playing style something like machine can 'read'  u.from the way you play . .it sounds to me like robotic technology if it is true and also i co0nsider that has nothing to do with the rng [entirely different part of the machine] i already know that a part of slot machines design it is psychology thank you in advance daniel

Answer
Daniel, there is no such thing as living memory. This is just another myth that is being spread around by people to justify why they aren't winning. The machine does not care who is playing or many times they play. Every single spin is brand new and is not related to the previous spin nor the next spin. Phil

Expertise

Author of the book, "Slot Machines: Fun Machines or Tax Machines? A Technician Reveals the Truth About One-Armed Bandits", ISBN 1-55270-049-6 published by Productive Publications under the pen name Ian B. Williams. I can answer any question related to the concept, design, marketing, programming, operation, installation, repair, and maintenance of slot machines, video poker machines, and video lottery terminals, and their related equipment and machinery, within the regulated gaming industry. I WILL NOT ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS WHATSOEVER RELATED TO THE PRIVATE OWNERSHIP OF GAMING MACHINES, INCLUDING QUESTIONS SUCH AS "I JUST BOUGHT A SLOT MACHINE AND IT DOESN'T WORK...". I can help dispel all the myths and misconceptions that have permeated the print and news media about slots over the years. I can also answer questions related to gambling addiction in general and slot machine addiction in particular. Each question will be answered truthfully, without bias, whether the answer is what the questioner wants to hear. I will not propagate the myth that there are secrets to winning or beating slots, because there are none. There are no methods or tricks or other such nonsense that a lot of people think there are. I`m sorry, but reality in regard to slot machines can be a big letdown! I won`t lead anyone on. Want to know the real truth? Just ask. I can also answer general questions related to casinos except for table games.
