Online Fruit Machines
"Slot machines sit there like young courtesans, promising pleasures undreamed of, your deepest desires fulfilled, all lusts satiated." Frank Scoblete. Calm down Frank! It's just a fruit machine!
Slot machines are typically programmed to pay out 82 to 98% of the money wagered as winnings.
Legends of the Slots
Charles Fey & Theodre Holtz
In 1898 Charles Fey invented the first 3 reel slot machine, the Liberty Belle. Holtz and Fey Electric Works grew to be a giant in slot machine manufacturing. In 1907, Charles Fey partnered with the Mills Novelty Company to produce the Mills Liberty Bell. In 1910 Mills Novelty created the first fruit symbol slot machine, the Operator Bell.
The Liberty Belle Saloon in Reno still hosts the very first Liberty Belle slot machine.

Tommy Glenn Carmichael
Tommy Carmichael invented the slider or monkey paw and is the emperor of slot machine cheats (so far). The slider was inserted through the payout chute until it tripped a switch in the slot machine causing a pay out. Inevitably Carmichael was eventually incarcerated by the FBI. Carmichael now manufactures anti-cheating devices.
Cindy Jay - Megabucks Jackpot
Josephine Crawford - Harrah's $10 Million Slot Winner
In 2006 Josephine Crawford hit a $10,010,113.48 million slot machine jackpot at the Harrah's Casino in Atlantic City. The 84 year old retired waitress was playing a nickel slot machine when the jackpot bell rang. Three men proposed to Josephine after her slot machine win. "Their wives were there, too! One of them told me, You can have him!"
Online Slot Tactics
Slot machines offer a variety of features and prizes. The key difference will be the size of the jackpot on offer. If you want to enjoy the experience then find a fun machine with small to medium payouts. The jackpot will be less but you will get more spin for your money. If you want the big money choose a slot machine offering progressive jackpots. Progressive slot machine jackpots continuously increase in size until one scoops the prize.
Size Really Does Matter
Multi "Pain" Line
Multi-pay line slot machines sound like a dream come true. More ways to win! Yet playing these slot machines can be quite expensive as the coin rate per spin is usually higher, and the jackpot levels relatively lower. Single pay line slot machines give you a longer play time without risking too much money at one time. These slot machines also offer larger prizes if you hit the elusive jackpot.
