Vulnerabilities in Video Slots
In this article, we will talk about a software bug (called “bug” or “hole”) in slot machines and video slots. Can you find bugs, bugs in slots and use them to earn money? In what quantities do we need to work and how soon will this gap be closed?
We hope this article will help you understand how the system used to fix bugs and gaps in video slots. We also give examples of test-takers’ practices. Why do you think the operator is releasing the second version of the popular game a few years after its initial release and without serious changes but with a new form of internal functions (without serious changes)? Here, the slot machines of the first version only usually take the players’ money.
Aliens slot machine can be seen as a vivid example. This video slot is an extremely popular video slot that received the award as “innovation of 2014”. It was removed from the Netent line in 2017 for a redesign of the game. What do you think is the reason for such a hasty, panic? Perhaps a vulnerability was found where some players could cash in on the Aliens video slot and Netent removed this slot from the list.
New versions that cover the gaps of slot machines
The reasons for releasing a new version of the video slot may be the following factors:
- The first version is very popular.
- The developers still believe they can get an additional action (and profit) with the second version and theme (or idea).
- Advanced graphics and features.
- Fixing bugs and vulnerabilities in the first version.
A new version of the video slot has been developed for the reasons outlined above. Sometimes there is an urgent need to eliminate a vulnerability that allows players to earn money from this video slot permanently in the long run. A few years ago, we were personally lucky enough to face such a bug in the Jack Hammer slot machine, and we won a total of 100,000 euros for several months. After a while the video slot was reprogrammed and only started to withdraw money, and after a while the second version of the Jack Hammer 2 slot machine was released.

Let’s talk a little more about this. We noticed something strange: At 25- and 250-Euro bets, the Jack Hammer slot machine refunded more than 100% of the bets made even though the original RTP of the game was 97%. This continued over the course of more than 2 million games. At the same time, the maximum “draw” was 25000 Euros per day and the maximum earnings were 100 000 Euros.
We managed to make more than 100 000 Euros in a while. This hole in the slot machine was discovered by chance, and the error disappeared with the release of the second part of the Jack Hammer video slot. After that, the video slot stopped making big wins.
Vulnerabilities: weak points of online casino
Slot machines start off with winnings on certain bets somewhat more often than others. Of course, this does not mean that the slot withdraws your money for all other stakes. Calculate this “mistake” as a great chance for the player and a real nightmare for the casino.
Let’s look at the problem for software developers. What if one (or several) of your customers reports that one of the players constantly wins from the same slot machine? What if it finds a vulnerability in the video slot settings and takes advantage of it? You can admit that this can threaten your entire business and commercial reputation. A serious casino network that values reputation cannot simply refuse an honest player payment (because it doesn’t violate anything). Let’s face it; It would be strange to write in the rules that players are forbidden to win. Of course, in such a case, if there is a vulnerability in the software, the casino consults with the software developer regarding these winnings and offers to share the player’s winnings.
So, what should you do? The first thing that comes to mind is to fix the bug in the slot. However, it is difficult to do. Moreover, the main challenge is that by resetting the video slot you will scare other players who play regularly and lose money.
The developer should release the second version of this video slot with the vulnerabilities fixed and draw the attention of regular players to this new version.
After that, they replace the original version where the bugs were exploited, play them in “cold” mode, and aim to get all the money back (because these players are still looking for the same bugs). Players lose most of their earnings in high revs before they believe the changes to the settings in my advanced system will apply.
