Slots by Michael Shackleford aka Wizard of Odds

The first gambling machine that could indisputably be called a slot machine was a simple, three-reel game titled Liberty Bell. It was invented by Charles Fey in San Francisco around 1896. Back then, slots were often confined to bars and sometimes paid out prizes instead of coins to get around anti-gambling laws.

In 1963, Bally Gaming created the first electronic slot machine, allowing for faster game play and larger jackpots. The first video slot machine, whose name I don't know, was created by the Fortune Coin Company in 1976. Its first placement was at the Las Vegas Hilton. Then, in 1996, WMS created the first bonus round as part of the game Reel 'Em In, which is still alive and well today.

Land Based Slots

Today, land based slot machines are a major form of casino revenue. At the time of this writing, slot machines (including all types of machine games) had 74% greater revenue than all other forms of gambling combined in the state of Nevada, based on the 12 month period ending Jan. 31, 2017*. So, it would be easy to say that slot machines are big business.

Online Slots

In the world of Internet casinos, online slot machines also provide a huge percentage of the business for operatiors. Many software providers clearly put an emphasis on slot machines, as evidenced by the sheer number of options, sophisticated graphics, and game designs compared to table games. In fact, many software providers focus solely on slot machines creation. At online casinos, video slots, sometimes called "pokies," make up the vast majority of slot games. Most are rather dated compared to what is currently available in land casinos, at least in my opinion.

At the end of the day, the latest slot machines are very much like the original Liberty Bell -- glorified spinning reels. Random numbers determine where the reels stop, the machine scores whatever patterns are formed on the screen, and the player is paid accordingly. The math is carefully done to ensure the theoretical average win hits a desired target, like 92%.



Mathematically speaking, slot machines are a lousy bet. Returns can vary widely but most fall in the range of 88% to 95%. That equates to a house edge of 5% to 12%.Compare that to many table games and video poker with a house edge under 1%. To make matters worse, slot machines have a very fast rate of play, so expected losses per hour can mount quickly. To anybody looking to stretch his gambling dollar, I highly recommend leaving the spinning reels alone and switching to a game that requires some skill, like blackjack or video poker.

However, I've been preaching that to slot players for 20 years and I don't think I have made a convert yet. Something about the spinning reels seems to hypnotize slot players into a state of bliss that no other game can compare to.
