Video Slots History
A man named Charles Fey developed the first commercially successful slot machine in his San Francisco machine shop around 1896. Made of cast iron with three internal reels, a slot for taking in coins and an external lever for activating the machine, it quickly became a staple of saloons, gambling houses and even many retail stores (where patrons would trade their winnings for goods from the store - hence the term "trade goods").
Today, no casino would be complete without gleaming rows of noisy, colorful, brightly lit slot machines. The mix of sounds from hundreds of machines chirping, spinning, stopping and clinking out coins is the iconic background music that fills every casino floor. They are by far the most popular casino game in the world, both in terms of number of games played and total wagers.
With the advent of digital electronics, slot machines have expanded from the original mechanical design to a wide range of computer-generated displays with multi-stage games and other new twists on an old favorite. First came multi-line slots with additional pay lines. Then video slots came on the scene to give game designers much more freedom to create interesting and innovative variations. Because they are computer-based, a number of video slots can be linked together to establish rapidly growing progressive jackpots.
With this continual evolution in excitement and entertainment value, the Slot Machine will remain as the most popular casino game for years to come.
Video Slots Overview
Unlike traditional slot machines that depict a parallel set of rotating reels, Video Slot machines often display a grid of symbols arranged in rows and columns. During a spin, the symbols appear to rotate within each cell or column and then are randomly distributed throughout the cells when the spinning stops.
We speak of Video Slot machines as having, say, 5 "reels", even though you may not be able to see them. That's because these machines still use a fair spin of 5 unweighted, rotating reels to randomly distribute symbols among the cells. This means there is a distinct reel behind each column in the grid, and where it stops determines which symbols appear in the cells of that column.
Video Slots typically offer more pay lines than regular slots, and the lines may angle up and down through the cells as they move across the grid.
Because their interfaces are electronic rather than mechanical, Video Slots can also offer interesting side bets, bonus rounds and amazing graphics that provide much more fun and excitement.
To provide maximum enjoyment, each Video Slot machine is configured differently in terms of lines, payouts and betting options. Some have progressive jackpots, others offer more flexibility in terms of number of lines or control over how many credits are bet on each line. We provide the specific configuration for each machine in the Machine Details section.
