The slot machine was created by an American by the name of Charles Fey in 1895. The original slot machine was created with 3 spinning reels depicting playing cards. On each of those reels was a picture of a cracked Liberty Bell. To play the game the lever on the side had to be pulled. From that time, interest in the slot machine began to grow and the game became very popular across the world.
The 90’s Jackpot
The slot machine proved to be a very interesting and exciting game that encouraged people of various ages to join in with the game. The slot games offered jackpots of different sizes, and although there is not much in the way of records about who won the larger jackpots in the 90’s the most significant jackpot recorded was won by a 25-year old engineer in 2003 with a whopping great sum of $39.7 million.
What made the slot machines so great in the 90’s
After the ban on slot games and slot machines was completely lifted in the 1950’s, the rise of the slot machine became so incredible that they could be found in every casino in the United States and other parts of Europe. People could play for hours on the slot machines on slot games like Mega Moolah, Wheel of Fortune, and so on. People would spend hundreds of dollars on a machine and, for many, their returns would be little or nothing.
When RNG (Random Number Generator) was introduced in the 80’s, slot machines became more popular. At the time of RNG being introduced the retro slot machines began to fade away. Slot machines are now operated by just the pressing of one button, which has made it possible for manufacturers to be able to develop slot machines as slick as possible with great themes, symbols and multiple ways for payment to be received by the players.
