A slot machine is an automatic electronic-mechanical device that serves for gambling with cash winnings. At the same time, the game process takes place without the participation of service personnel.
Previously, we all saw large sparkling boxes that were installed everywhere: in shopping malls, in bars and restaurants, and in gambling halls. They flashed with displays, something was spinning in them, sometimes you could hear the clink of coins, and clearly enthusiastic people were sitting in front of them. All this quickly ended when the Gambling Regulation law was passed in Russia. All slot machines were taken to specially designated regions.
At first there was a word, that is, sorry, mechanical slot machines. They had a beautiful name "one-armed bandit", it was a box with a lever. Pull the lever, the reels spun, a happy combination of some figures will fall out, so you won, and money fell down. But lucky combinations were extremely rare. They were easy to set up and reconfigure.
Mechanics were replaced by electronics. Slot machines have become more elegant, but the size has not decreased much. Firstly, the screen takes up space, and secondly-a hopper, this is such an aggregate for receiving and issuing money or game tokens. And the famous lever disappeared, buttons appeared instead, but the principle of operation remained the same. Slot machines can differ in terms of game conditions, bonus system, and of course design.
