Hello! Today it is my turn to do a post here on our site. My name is Maria and perhaps you remember that my favorite kind of game was slot machines. So I decided to make an entire post about only slot machines!! How about that? I hope you will like this as much as I do. First of all, have you ever tried to play slot machines? No? If you have you know the thrill when you get a big win and if you haven’t I am going to tell you all about it now.

The slot machines originally were placed in bars where you could win a beer or a glass of whiskey. The first slot machine was called Liberty Bell and goes back all the way to the 1800 century. Liberty Bell had three reels and one pay line. The symbols in this slot was hearts, spades, horseshoes, diamonds and bells. Many of these symbols still are used in slot machines today. In liberty bell the bell gave the highest win and therefore it got its name also. To win you had to have five symbols in total and three in a row.

When Liberty Bell was made gambling was prohibited in a lot of states, so no cash could be paid out. So instead you could get candy, bubblegum or something from the bar if it was standing in a bar. The candy you got was often shaped as a fruit and also the reason that many slot machines today has fruits as symbols. A bit history there!

But it was the company Bally who made the slot machines electronically. The next level in the slot machines was now introduced, with several coin levels and more pay lines. The slots became more popular than ever. International Gaming Technology saw the future in the slots and created the completely electronically slot machine and also created the system where pooled jackpots where offered. The video slots where now on the market, of took a while but after a couple of years they really hit it off.

How are the slot machines today then? The online casinos got an instant hit the year of 2010 and still are. Today everyone owns a computer or a smartphone with internet. We are connected to our devices 24/7 and therefore the casinos have made themselves available on all mobile devices. To reach out to the customers has become really easy if you compare to the beginning of the history. The casinos have also increased their bonuses and ways to make players find them.

The slot machines have been improved in both sound effects and graphics to so today it is more than just a game, it is an experience. The games today also ha stories that you can follow and it makes it so much funnier to play. It is almost like a video game. Except that you can win a lot of money.

slotIf you want to read more about slots and slot machines I would recommend this site for you. This is where I read a lot in the beginning when I didn’t quite know what kind of games I liked and what I wanted to play. But I learned a lot there and the site has some great tips on where to find free spins and other fun stuff. My absolute favorite game is called Gonzo’s Quest. It is a great story and not like the old common slots machines since there are no reels on them. Instead there are falling symbols. It is really exciting anyway! Now I have to go to work!
