The Beginning of Slots

After enjoying numerous moments with your all-time favorite slots machine, you would have definitely uttered some words of praises to the genius behind that device that has been a major factor why you keep coming back to that casino house. With that, take some time off and try to learn the brains that helped form the modern slots machine.

In 1891, the first ever slots machine was conceptualized in New York by two brilliant men, Pitt and Sitmann. Pit and Sitmann's version of the slots machine still needed more crafting as they made use of drums to show the poker hands. Aside from that, this earliest version of slots machine did not provide a payback scheme. However, it was still a one-of-a-kind invention back then that many establishments in New York did not think twice in purchasing the device. But, since this earliest slots machine model had no payback scheme, the establishments did some manual payback to the winners of the game. The prizes were usually free food or drinks.

Inspired by Pit and Sitmann's invention, Charles Fey devised his own version of a slots machine. Fey's model became known as the Liberty Bell. His invention did not get widespread attention until it was displayed at the Flamingo Hilton hotel in Las Vegas. They say that Fey's slots machine were designed differently. The machine weighed over 100 pounds as it was made in cast iron. Fey did not make use of popular slots machines symbols like oranges, grapes and other fruits. He made use of unconventional ones like stars, horseshoe, aces, spades, diamonds and hearts. The payout in Fey's machine amounted to 50 cents which were already a lot in those days.

Fey did not get satisfied with his first model so he made another one which was known as the Operator Bell Slot Machine. The Operator Bell used the fruit symbols and this model became the standard model for slots machines until today.

The fame of the slots machines also attracted some anti-gambling organizations. The negative sentiments resulted to the banning of these machines in San Francisco in 1909. A year later, slots machines also became illegal in Nevada. Two years after that, the whole state of California were against the playing of slots machines.

Bugsy Siegel who was very well known as the founder of the Flamingo Hilton found future in the slots machine. He decided to invest in slots machine as these machines won the fancy of wives and mistresses of casino players.

The slots machines since the 1970s made use of microchips and random number generating scheme.
