Since people have started playing casino games and slots at cozino.dk, in particular, they have tried to find a way to manipulate the system and win easy money in a short time.
From famous engineer like Ronald Harris who tried cheating the code to predict the result of the machine, to players who used to modify the coin size or use fake coins to cheat the whole systems.
Over the years, there have been many attempts to mislead slot machines so to get some easy money. Here is a list of slot machines cheats that used to work in the past before getting discovered and banned.
Now, the advanced technology behind them makes it impossible to even think to replicate them.
An astute man named Tommy Carmichael was able to cheat the slot machine system (and earn money) for more than 40 years. He invented a cheating system which allowed him to make casino machines disburse money without even making a single bet.
Another smart man, the programmer Ronald Harris managed to manipulate the slot machine system and earn $100,000 on a video game. The man acted undisturbed for 40 years after which he was captured and arrested.
One of the people who has won the highest amount playing slots was a man able to replicate the coins of the biggest casinos in Las Vegas.
Thanks to this trick, he could cheat the system and steal money for many years. Many years passed before he got caught.
Players also used flat coins which were first inserted into the machine and then removed from it. For many years many players were able to get big winnings using this method without spending a penny.
Some players used to make a little hole to a coin, then use a string to make a node. Then, they inserted the coin into the coin counter and retrieved it using the string. Over and over again.
The trick was found out when the insiders noticed a string inside the machine.
A lady in Nevada physically jumped into a slot machine to manipulate the mechanism. Maybe too confident in her skills or too unconscious of things around her, she tried to carry out the crime during the day, when the casino was full of people. She was caught and immediately arrested.
In the ’80s, a piano wire was inserted inside the slot machine creating a big hole so to manipulate the cogs and make them stop at winning rounds.
Some programmers created tricked chips to insert inside the slot machines and manipulate them to their needs. This trick is now out to date because machines have a different mechanism.
In the past, even casino employees sometimes used some tricks to earn some extra money from slot machines. No engineering or code knowledge required. Just craftiness. To refill the machines, employees used a bag full of coins. Some money was kept on a side so to steal it later.
