In the beginning of the twentieth century several innovations burst onto the scene that would change the face of cultural and leisure activities. Two originated in the American south - the blues and jazz - and one on the West coast - the slot machine. Like the first two, which quickly were adopted throughout the world and became staples of world culture, slot machines also began to appear very quickly all over the world.

The first slot machine was invented by Charles Fey in San Francisco around the turn of the century. On it were pictures of the different suits used on playing cards - hearts, spades and diamonds. Around 1910 the machine went into mass production, and the pictures on its revolving surfaces changed from being playing card suits to the now familiar fruits. These old fashioned slot machines were made out of cast iron and wood. During the sixties, the slot machine became electronic, and in the 1970's the first video slot machines were introduced. video slots did not have the mechanical insides of the earlier machines, rather they had screens on which the wheels would turn.

Today, the most popular slot machines are virtual. The internet contains a wide variety of exciting and unusual online gambling slot machines whose function accurately simulates that of the familiar slot machines found in every casino around the world. Though lacking in physical form, today's online slot machines offer the player the same odds and excitement found in a casino, only these slots can be played anytime and on any computer.
