        Bells: Charles Fey devised the first slot machine in San Francisco in 1899 and it comprised a three-slot device containing an image of the famous Liberty Bell, a well-known symbol from the American Civil war.

        Bars: The bar symbol, which is the other classic slot machine design, is derived from the logo of the Bell Fruit chewing gum company. The gum was delivered through slots in a machine designed by Herbert Mills of Chicago in 1910.

        Fruit: The use of fruit symbols is also linked to the Mills machine as these represented the different gum flavors produced by the Herbert Mills company. The fruit flavors gave rise to the other common name for these devices - fruit machines.

        Very interesting Lips.  We call them fruit machines here or fruities or alternatively, one armed bandits.  I guess that came from the fact that they rob you of your money.
