Video Lottery Terminals Explained

Home » Video Lottery Terminals Explained

Video Lottery Terminal (VLT) is simply a gaming machine that gives gamblers the ability to wager in a casino, based on the outcome of a video game.

It is a stand-alone machine (similar to the slot machine) that selects numbers randomly by use of a generator. There is a super-computer that monitors all the video lottery terminals in a casino.

The machine allows only random bets and is bound to lottery jurisdiction. The payout in video lottery terminals is calculated as a percentage and is the average outcome of over thousands of spins. As a result, the odds in the game are always in favour of the casino.”

Video Lottery Terminal is an upgrade to the famous traditional AWPs. The only difference is that VLTs are connected to a central gaming system and have no gaming card installed to them. It is the work of the central gaming system to process the game and its outcome.

It is then displayed on the screen of the VLTs. Most VLT machines are multi-terminal; they can allow different games to be played on the same VLT machine.

Most of the popular games in those current machines are roller-based. The game is also prohibited to all players with the age of fewer than 18 years.

The Advantages of VLT

Playing your game here is very simple. All you need is to place a bet—the RNG in the machine cycles through many possible numbers. The outcome of the game will be determined the moment the player hits the spin button.

As a result, it is tough to predict the results of the game. The game cost varies between €0.50 and a maximum of €10. Mostly, the VLT will accept coins, gaming tickets or even banknotes.

When you win the game, you will get a printed ticket, which you have to present to the casino gaming operator for you to get paid.

In case you win above €1,000, the anti-money laundering regulations must apply before you are given the cash. The maximum credit amount of a player to wager is relatively low here (usually around $100).

The player has the opportunity to select different lengths of playtime, depending on the amount staked. After exhausting the playtime, the only option left is to either cash out or add another amount of playtime.

Bingo halls, horse racing betting agencies, sports betting agencies, and sports betting shops are just some of the places where you will find video lottery terminals are installed.
