History of Slot Machines

It was in 1891 when Pitt and Sittman designed what was known as the first slot machine. This initial machine had five reels that displayed poker hands. However, it did not have any payback schemes yet. If someone hits a winning combination, the bar owner would usually give him free drinks.
 
Four years after, Charles Fey created the Liberty Bell slot machine which is the first slot machine that repays winners. This machine was made from 100 pounds of iron and did not feature fruit symbols yet. Liberty Bell contained icons such as a star, a horseshoe and playing card suits. A fifty-cent payout is given to winners.
 
After the initial success of Liberty Bell, Fey created the Operator Bell slot machine. It was the first machine that featured the classic fruit symbols that became a staple of other slot machines. However, since a lot of people saw this as a form of gambling, anti-slot machine protests began. Because of which, Fey designed slot machines that worked like vending machines.
 
This camouflage made the slot machine legacy live. The Bell Fruit Gum Company reportedly stole a Fey machine and mass produced slot/vending machines that dispensed gum for each pull of the lever. In an effort to market their gum, Bell Fruit placed the logo of their gum which was where the BAR symbol originated.
 
Yet despite the confusion, the anti-gambling movement caught on and suddenly, Fey was out of business. In 1909, slot machines were banned in San Francisco. A year later, Nevada banned it as well and in 1911, slot machines were waived off the whole California state.
 
This relative inactivity of slot machine continued through the Prohibition period up until the thirties when politicians who want good publicity show that they are anti-gambling. Slot machines and even common vending machines were confiscated and sometimes dumped into the sea.
 
If not for organized crime figure Bugsy Siegel, slot machines would have been non-existent for a longer time. Being the owner of the Flamingo Hilton, Siegel invested on slot machines so that the wives or girlfriends of his high rollers will have something to do. For Siegel, it was an auxiliary but soon enough, slot players were multiplying at a fast rate.
 
This marked the renaissance of the slot machine. However, all machines then are still mechanical. It wasn’t until the late 60’s that the first electronic slot machine was introduced in the entertainment capital of the world. At that time, electronic machines posed a safer way to play slots. However, it was much harder to cheat on these machines.
 
The slot machine bandwagon rolled along since then and therefore, slot machine mechanics were finding ways to improve their machine’s performance. It’s a good thing that microchips and random number generators were fused to slot machines during the seventies. Due to this new technology, it began a phase of transition from the lever-activated to the button-generated slot machines.
 
By the 1980’s, all slot machines were powered by microchips and RNGs. Because of which, casinos gained bigger profits for machine maintenance became inexpensive. From then on, slot machines continued to improve in terms of themes, reel numbers, paylines and payouts.
 
And as the world gave way to the information technology age, online slot machines were born. You need not visit your favourite casino to spin and win. A steady internet connection and a valid online casino account will let you win various prizes.
 

Certainly, slot machines have gone a long way. But no matter what form of slot machine are you playing, it still entails the same spinning action. Indeed, life’s fortune goes round and round and before you know it, you have milked the slot machine with all of its treasures.
