Everyone just loves playing the slots.
Slot machines are easy to play. You certainly do not need to bluff techniques to win or any card that counts strategy. Slot machines also do not cost quite as much as playing other casino games . And even if you lose, it really would not matter because it was money well spent, considering how much fun you had to play.
With all the advantages and benefits that you and the other players get to enjoy when playing the slots, did you ever wonder who was the brain behind such glorious inventions?
If so, you came to the right place because we are going to tell you a little about the history of slot machines.
The first slot machines, if you ever get to see one or an imitation of it, no doubt give you the impression of being a poker machine. The first models of slot machines, you see, the covers of cards made use of instead of pictures or symbols. The paylines were based on poker hands like real flush, real house and so on instead of three cherries or three bells.
To even out the odds and to make the owners of the machines earn more money, the usual two cards un- one cat and a – ten were always taken to play to minimize the chances of a player spinning out a real flush.
The real flush after everything was the highest payline the biggest jackpot so to speak – so the owners the main concerns were to diminish the chances of that happening!
But anyway, the name of the man behind the first slot machine is Charles Fey. Just like Bill Gates, a hasty first glance at him would not make anyone think that he could have invented such a thing. Charles Fey was not, in fact, before his successful and much-celebrated invention, nothing but a humble worker in the electrical works of California.
It was only when he finally had Liberty Bell el- the name in which the first slot machine was christened with – fully running that he had a brighter future to look forward to.
Fey never looked back after the nighttime success of Liberty Bell in a saloon of San Francisco. He quit his job and along with his work buddy Theodore Holtez, they created their own company and went into building hundreds and hundreds of slot machines.
It’s not the story of Mr. Rag-a-riches. Fey quite remarkable? Who knows, you could be like him too one day. But until that day, enjoy playing your invention; the slot machine.
