Firstly - you're right... NO ONE should play the slots... they ARE rigged... but not in a dishonest way. They are rigged in the same way gambling machines in pubs are rigged - they have a built in edge... and they are IMPOSSIBLE to beat in the long run.
If you want to play these games, throw a few quid at it now and then, and you might get lucky from time to time and get a decent win. If you play them for 6 hours straight, you're gonna have to be REALLY lucky to be ahead of the game.
When you play the slots, what you are doing in effect, is making the same losing bet over and over and over... I think the average payout is 93% meaning you're losing 7% equity every time you spin.
