The History of Slot Machines
Slot machines have really taken off, especially when you consider where they come from. While you’ll find them at probably any casino in the world, several pubs in the UK and on multiple online sites like Betfair Casino, it might surprise you to learn that they were originally used to play Poker. Designed as an automatic way to dispense poker hands, the machines evolved over time with the first offering an automatic pay out being the Horseshoe slot machine developed by Gustav Schultz.

Of course, it wasn’t long before the flaws in a mechanical slot machine became apparent (not least that it was possible to cheat them) and they were replaced with a more high-tech version with a computer and RNG to decide the outcomes rather than a more predictable mechanical version. This made slots a far more appealing prospect with new designs coming out themed around different things like Wheel of Fortune and the more modern ones modelled on popular films and TV shows (Game of Thrones slots anyone?). Since then, Slots became a staple of both brick and mortar casinos and the online sites (the difference is really just environment, they use the same RNG software in both after all).
