The History of Slot Machines
In the event that you’ve perused anything about old fashioned gambling machines or about the development of these games, you’ve known about Charles Fey. He was a repairman living in San Francisco. In 1887, he designed a game with 3 turning reels. Every one of these reels had 5 images on them:
The Liberty Bell
You’ll see a playing card topic here, however you’ll likewise see horseshoes-images of best of luck. Also, the Liberty Bell is the image from which this prototypical gambling machine game gets its name. The game initially expected a specialist to take care of wins, yet he kept dealing with and working on the machines. Ultimately (by 1898), you could play a Liberty Bell gaming machine and win an incredible 50 pennies from the machine straightforwardly.
A Tradition of Outsmarting the Law
The games were immediately made unlawful as a result of their betting nature. In any case, business people are innovative, and Fey (and different imitators) got around these limitations by taking care of rewards in treats. This is the place where we get the pervasive leafy foods images seen still on these games today. The natural product images used to address the kind of the treats won. The bar images addressed sticks of biting gum.
Somehow or another, history continues to rehash the same thing. I live in Texas, and you’ll observe gambling machines called “8-liners” all through the state. I’ve seen them in bars, in corner stores, and in “game rooms”. Since gaming machines are (stringently talking) unlawful in Texas, these games don’t pay off in real money.
All things being equal, you get focuses which you can use toward prizes. I invested some energy in a game room in a humble community in Texas where you could in a real sense cash in these focuses for canned merchandise like corn. They additionally had a modest arrangement of cultivating devices accessible.
I’ve likewise played 8-liners in bars where on the off chance that you won you needed to visit the proprietor of the bar on Friday to get “an envelope”. This envelope had your money rewards in it. In any case, God disallow you request an envelope in the event that the proprietor didn’t have the foggiest idea what your identity was.
These are only models from my own insight of smart business people evading against betting regulations to keep on offering gambling machine games to their clients. In that regard, things have changed little since the 1890s.
Truth be told, these betting machines changed very little for quite a long time, despite the fact that they became apparatuses in the gambling clubs. For quite a long time, these games were viewed as an interruption for the spouses of the “genuine” speculators the ones who were playing blackjack, craps, and poker. They were found in the spots in the gambling club where the administration thought they’d be bound to draw in the consideration of these ladies.
