They are a staple of casinos throughout the world. Dozens of the one-armed bandits are filtered throughout the casino floor. The sounds of slot machine activity in a casino are non-stop. While there are numerous games to play in every casino, the slot machines are the ultimate revenue generators for most casino operators. About 70 percent of the average casinos income is generated through slot machines.
Slots started off as penny ‘fruit machines’ in local bars and pubs. The player would insert a penny or nickel, pull the handle, and hope the 3 reels would show a row of matching symbols. We’ve come a long way since then. Today’s slot machines offer multiple paylines, up to 243 ways to win, expanding wilds, bonus rounds, and reel re-spins, to name just a few of the innovative features and extras now offered.
