History of Slots

Charles August Fey, an immigrant from Bavaria, Germany invented one of the first mechanical slot machines in 1895. The first slot machine was called the Liberty Bell and it had three spinning reels with diamonds, spades, hearts, and one Liberty Bell painted around each reel. Three bells in a row produced the largest payout, a whopping 50 cents. This slot machine only cost a penny to spin the reels. During this time, Charles Fey was working as an automotive mechanic in San Francisco.

Years later, the popularity of slots grew so large that the government made them illegal. It has been said that Fey was fined and arrested. A vending machine with candy, gum, coupons, and cigars became a way of helping the slot machine around the anti-gambling laws at that time.

In the 1980s, the popularity of slot machines seem to hit one of its lowest points, and that is when the casinos started producing slot machines with more reels, more paylines, bonuses, and much bigger winnings in both the progressive and straight varieties. Over the years, and with the introduction to online gambling, slot machines have grown in popularity to the point where they are one of the most popular games played at online casinos today.
