Slot machines are casino gambling machines with three or more reels which spin when a button is pushed. The machine pays are based on patterns of symbols visible on the front of the machine when it stops. Most of the modern slots consist of a base game, free games and bonus games. The base game is the core of the playing process. Player’s money are usually taken as bet in the base game and no bet is taken during free games or bonus games. Each slot machine has a parameter called return to… 
Slot Machine Base Game Evolutionary RTP Optimization
TLDR
An evolutionary optimization algorithm for optimization of slot machine base game RTP by rearrangement of the symbols in the reels, is proposed and the fitness function used checks all possible slot machine winning screens.
Slot Machine RTP Optimization Using Variable Neighborhood Search
TLDR
This work presents a Variable Neighborhood Search (VNS) approach for solving the Return-To-Player (RTP) optimization problem, and is the first time that a VNS methodology is proposed for this problem in the literature with good computational results.

Slot Machine RTP Optimization and Symbols Wins Equalization with Discrete Differential Evolution
TLDR
The scope of this paper is focused on the symbols distribution placed on the machine reels in such a way that two common goals to be satisfied - desired RTP and keeping relatively equal levels of the prizes with relatively good symbol diversity on the reels.
Slot Machines RTP Optimization with Genetic Algorithms
TLDR
RTP optimization automation, based on genetic algorithms, is proposed, which aims to achieve the desired return to player percent (RTP) by controlling the symbols distribution.
Distributed Evolutionary Computing Migration Strategy by Incident Node Participation
TLDR
A hybrid model, based on incident node participation in star topology, is proposed, which aims at simplifying the implementation of evolutionary optimization algorithms for distributed computing.
Genetic algorithms with multi-parent recombination
TLDR
The experiments show that 2-parent recombination is inferior on the classical DeJong functions and in some cases 2 parents are optimal, while in some others more parents are better.
Slot Machine Base Game Evolutionary RTP Optimization
TLDR
An evolutionary optimization algorithm for optimization of slot machine base game RTP by rearrangement of the symbols in the reels, is proposed and the fitness function used checks all possible slot machine winning screens.
On the Mean Convergence Time of Multi-parent Genetic Algorithms Without Selection
TLDR
An exact model based on Markov chains is proposed to formulate the variation of gene frequency and reveals the pairwise equivalence phenomenon in the number of parents and indicates the acceleration of genetic drift in MPGAs.
