The humble slot machine was invented in 1895 by American car mechanic, Charles Fey. His first slot machine, named the Liberty Bell, had three spinning reels, with diamond, heart and spade symbols painted around each reel, as well as the image of a cracked Liberty Bell. A spin resulting in three Liberty Bells in a row meant the biggest payoff.
After major success with other adaptations of this original machine, Charles Fey invented the first draw poker machine in 1901. Charles started renting his machines out to saloons and bars, and soon he could not keep up with the demand. Arcade manufacturer Herbert Mills stepped in and started manufacturing competitive machines called the Operator Bell. Herbert was the first to place fruit symbols on his slots, which are still popular today. In 1975, the first electronic slot machine was built by the Fortune Coin Company.
