There is perhaps no better representation of gambling culture than the classic slot machine. Slots are an old invention, but they are still extremely popular in a variety of casino settings. There are so many varieties of slots these days and such a large variance in payout that one can feel dizzy trying to name all the slots available in the gambling world.
Three Reel Slots
The classic slot machine has three reels, or wheels, with decals or symbols painted around the edges. These reels will spin when the machine is first cycled. After the reels spin wildly for a few moments, the machine stops each reel on a random point revealing one of the decals on that reel. If you match up three symbols along the pay line, you win.
Varieties of Design
While the most well-known images and symbols used on classic slot machines are sevens, cherries, bells and bars, there have been a whole host of other themes mapped on to the classic slot machine. Some machines get extremely creative, substituting strange and fun symbols on slot reels, the entire machine is often painted in the accompanying theme. Different styles and designs turn regular classic slot machines into strange and quirky entities, especially in online slots with motifs like alien invasions, billiards, spy games, shoot outs, gold rushes and game show themes to name but a few.
Most classic slot machines began their evolution accepting pennies and nickels. Over the years, slot machines went through upgrades to begin accepting larger coins, like dimes, then quarters and on up to silver dollars. But forget silver dollars, these days most new slot machines in the classic style accept bills, and may not even accept coins anymore.
