The History of Slot Machines

Slot Machines were invented by Charles Fey in 1895. His slot machine was a three slot clunker that was operated by a handle on the side, and payed out according to pictures of fruit on the slots. At first it was just a game that customers played while they waited for their cars to be fixed in his garage. In time however, his machine became more popular.

When he decided to sell his machine it was at first rejected by the major manufacturers with the reason that it was still imperfected. Fey returned to his garage with his slot machine and started to work on it ands to improve it, with the desire to sell it. Improve it he did and the machine was soon sold and began to be manufactured. Many casinos bought the machines, to make a filler for when the tables with the “real games” were full. However, they soon realized that the machines were gaining in popularity and started buying more and more machines .

The rest is history. Slot machines have become the most popular game in the casino and there are rooms full of slot machines. Some casinos have as many as five thousand slot machines.
