By Arthur Levine

Level: May 14th 2007
Slot machines are the most popular games in online casinos or the land based ones. Millions of people play slot machines online, for the fun they provide, but especially for their jackpots which can reach millions of dollars.

The History of the slot machines
Charles Fey, a car mechanic invented the slot machines. He created them with the purpose of entertainment for the people who were waiting for their cars to be fixed. They were made out if cast iron and they paid at about 1/5 per cent. The machines were an instant success and soon people came to his garage to play at the machines, not to get their cars fixed.

Fey realized the potential of the slot machines, so he sold the idea to a toy manufacturer who then mass marketed them to all the casinos. The slots of our days use the same idea but the technology and the payouts have changed very much. Online slot machines are very popular among people because they offer big jackpots, and they are very easy and fun to play.

How to play the slots
The game is very simple: you have to insert a coin or coins and push a button or a lever. The reels will start spinning and you will have to wait and see the result. If the result is present on the machine's payout schedule you will an amount of money, depending on the payout percentage.

If you select the machines with the proper coin denomination and if you play the correct number of coins, you can increase your profit.

The Online Slot Machines
The slots have suffered a change when they were introduced in the online casinos. The RNG (Random Number Generator) now determines which symbols will appear on the reels by selecting a number series that correspond to the different symbols on the various reels.

The spinning of the reels is present only for entertainment, and it doesn't have anything to do with which symbols will appear.

Which machines to play

The online slot machines are of two different types: the flat tops and progressives. The payout is what differentiates them one from another. The flat tops slots have the predetermined payouts for given combinations printed on the machine, whereas the progressive slots have a jackpot that increases by a percentage of each coin played in that machine. The progressive jackpot can grow up to millions of dollars.

An entertaining game
The slot machines are entertaining and very simple to play. Anyone has a chance at winning the big jackpot as long as he uses some basic strategy.
