An American invention, slots have since become very popular all around the world. The most notable places include Europe, Africa, South America, Asia, and the Caribbean. As a 29 year-old Mechanic, Charles Fey invented the first slot machine way back in 1895. He went on to perfect his initial innovation in 1907, when he teamed with Mills Novelty Company.

The first slot machine was called the “Liberty Bell”; the original symbols included the standard playing card imagery we are all used to - hearts, diamonds and spades- along with bells, horseshoes and a star.

Until only recently, all slot machines were mechanical. There had been many improvements and impressive bells and whistles added, both literally and figuratively, but no mater how complicated some appeared to be, they were definitely mechanical on the inside.

Slots, being the biggest revenue producer, also been the single biggest cause of police raids, legal indictments, and courts decisions over all other forms of gambling combined. The problem is, the manner of play. No other style of gambling creates such a hypnotic fascination. It's seen time and time again that it is very difficult to resist the temptation to drop a coin when given the opportunity. Even those who have a moral problem with the concept of gambling have been shown to be affected by this phenomenon. The antecedents of this common behavior are rather indefinable, but it can most likely be largely attributed to two things, one just stated, the temptation to drop a coin with hopes of a massively large payoff for an insignificant bet, and the other is probably the mechanical attraction produced by the machines. The action of placing a bet lets you see the light show, and watch the reels spin. There is a larger level of excitement in reel players when they hit a jackpot than other gamblers when they win large sums. The complications behind this phenomenon are too complex to discuss here, but rely largely on the mental expectations and experience of players in each style of high stakes gaming.

Wide spread accessibility to the Internet brought with it a whole new area for, not only slots gaming, but all forms of gambling. Online casinos offer people the chance to play slots in the convenience of their own home, on their own terms, and in a way that was never possible before in history. Today online gaming is a multibillion-dollar industry, and is considered around the world as a safe, legitimate, and extremely convenient way to enjoy the timeless amusement the slot machine.
