Slots machines were found in the year 1894. The concept of these machines was a mere thought by an American, Charles Fey. Apart from this, Fey has also invented many machines that worked on coins like the prototype of modern slot machines. The concept of this machine was used in mechanical gaming devices. It bears 3 reels bearing 20 symbols on every reel that spins around an axis for producing the display option. These machines are very famous these days as it doesn’t need any special skill or dealer involved. The size varies based on the number of coins you have inserted before the spin.
Types of slots machines
- Straight slots
These machines are straightforward, unlike other slot machines. It also pays a certain amount to a specific pay.
- Progressive slot machines
These are the updated machines that bear a jackpot that keeps increasing as you keep inserting coins into it. Another interesting aspect is that these machines can also be connected to other machines in the very same casino or even with the machines that are in that very state or country. Many slot machines have one pay line, where you have to insert a coin every time to achieve a win, which is directly proportional to the number of coins needed to run it.
How does it work?
The classic machines run on levers and gears. Reels are held together with central metal shaft. Then, this is connected to the lever that begins the entire process. Every aspect depends on the coin, which is inserted into the machine that eventually lets it begin its mechanism. Nowadays, classic machines are rare, and electrical machines are more common. In the latter, the reels run on motors and stopping is done by solenoids. The money management in these machines is complicated.
