The idea of the first fruit-themed gaming machine was created in the 90s’ of the XIX century in the United States of America. The slot we are talking about included 5 reels and 50 spots with fruit symbols. What is more, the machine did not have an automatic system presenting the award. When winning, you could get some beer or cigarettes for that!
The first fully automatic gaming machine was invented just before the start of the XX century. It contained three reels, five symbols on each one. The highest prize was astonishing… 50 cents! You could get that fortune for drawing three symbols of historical Liberty Bell, which you can see in Philadelphia’s museum now.
Nearly everyone knows the term “one-armed bandit”. Even if you have never been to any casino in your whole life, neither virtual one or land-based, you surely have heard that popular name of gaming machines. However, online gambling games have changed completely through history. We are speaking not only about the gameplay or mechanics but also about the graphics and all the visual aspects of the game. You cannot play with legendary “one arm” through the Web!
The number of media available to take part in gambling grows every year. It has started with personal computers and laptops, now you can use your mobile phone! All that counts is an Internet connection. It does not even have to be fast!
