The Evolution of Online Video Slots


Jan 8, 2015

It has been now more than 100 years since the very first slot machine was invented by Charles Fey with the Liberty Bell slot. It was a classic 3 reels with 5 basic symbols such as diamonds, hearts, spades, horseshoes and the Liberty Bell. The idea quickly developed into more slot machines with further assorted symbols like fruits, bar symbols and high value cards. More slot games evolved in the early 1900’s with basic specifications as the Liberty Bell but different in appearances and symbols. With the rise in popularity also came a major setback within certain states in the US but this was only transitory.

In 1964 Bally Technology released its first Electro-mechanical Slot Machine called ‘Money Honey’ using electronic components instead of springs as mentioned in history on Wikipedia. The conception of the game came with added features never incorporated before such as lights, sounds and the ability to bet multiple coins.

The most spectacular and probably the most crucial developments and advancements took place as from the late 1970’s principally due to the computer technology innovations as stated on casinoadvisor.com. The first Video slot game found its way in the Casino in 1975 with the ‘Fortune Coin’ Video screen game created by Walt Fraley. It was not so popular at the time due to the fact that the public was not really convinced about the random generator of the virtual reels.

In 1976, International Game Technology (IGT) made the acquisition of the ‘Fortune Coin’ manufacturer and within 2 years made some changes in the design and function of the original one. These changes made a revolutionary change in the mind-set of players and was positively perceived. IGT quickly became one of the leading video slot game manufacturers with further releases of other games like Cleopatra, Wheel of Fortune, and Little Green Men etc. Other game manufacturers also joined in the race to offer more and more sophisticated games along the way.

With the rapid advancement of the Internet and the use of the Web, the concept of integrating these games online also became a reality although there were some scepticism at the beginning just like with the introduction of the ‘Fortune Coin’ some years back. Nowadays, online video slots has become the most popular games being played online.

The internet is now inundated with casinos offering various slot games with an unprecedented magnitude in terms of appearances, functions, bonuses with unlimited themes, icons, and symbols. Some are even based on best-selling movies and television series.

Most of the slot games are emerging with a story or themed upon a populate story with innovative graphics and animated introductions and symbols which is set to engage the player in a more realistic environment with captivating sound and music that goes beyond imagination at times.
