Slot machines are some of the most popular casino games across the world, as such they occupy more floor space than any other casino game at Las Vegas casinos. These luck based games often lend themselves to some quirky and superstitious behaviours amongst players, which if you're not amongst these yourself, you'll more than likely encounter these at one point or another during your stay in the city that never sleeps.

One of the strangest behaviours amongst slots players involves not going to the bathroom even when they need it because they don't want to give up their machine in case while they're away somebody steals their jackpot. In fact, some players are a so serious about this belief that adult diapers are amongst the top selling products in Las Vegas...we'll pause here while we all shudder at the thought!

While one can easily understand not wanting to leave a slot machine because you're having so much fun, and the fact that some casinos only have one of a specific slot, it's really bizarre to have to "hold it" just to play a game, especially when you can mark your seat with a piece of clothing or a cup as long as you’re not gone for too long. Also, worrying about someone stealing your jackpot may seem logical if you've been feeding a machine for hours, but there is no basis in reality for this, which we'll discuss now so that you'll feel free to use the facilities when you need to when playing slots in Las Vegas.

Outcomes of spins happen rapidly

The notion of someone being able to win "your jackpot" stems from the belief that slots deliver a certain payout after a predetermined number of spins has taken place. So some people may believe that a jackpot will be hit after a million spins but for this to happen a slot would have to be programmed according to a predetermined pattern, which would mean that results would not in fact be random at all.

The reality is that slots are governed by Random Number Generators (RNG's) which cycle through billions of number combinations in seconds to produce the final results that you see on your screen. So if you go to the bathroom and another players plays at your machine and win the jackpot, you could assume you would have won the prize instead had you stayed, but the chances of you spinning the reels at the exact same second and time that the other player did are on in several billion. Ultimately, this means that you don't have to worry about someone taking your machine and winning when you leave it ‐ RNG's ensure that results are so random that no one could ever really steal a jackpot from you.

Playing online slots

If you really can't get over the phobia of leaving your slot machine to go to the bathroom, then instead of visiting Las Vegas, you'd probably enjoy staying at home and playing some of the web's top online slots instead. This way you won't have to worry about someone else spinning the reels when you need to go to the bathroom, you can even play on your tablet or mobile device and take it with you!

Another great thing about online slots is that they generally have better payout rates than land based games thanks to the lower overhead costs incurred by internet casinos.

No matter where you play, keep in mind that nobody can steal your jackpot, and chasing one should never cause you to not enjoy your time at the machines.
