We can start with a little history lesson. Because what makes today’s slot machines work and look like they do? If we are to get to the bottom of it, we have to go all the way back to the end of the 19th century when it is assumed that the slot machines as we know them today have their origins. Of course, this happened, and it was the popular card game Poker that was the pig of the slot machine. This time everything was mechanical and the machines consisted of 52 cards from a deck of cards that were rotated around by a series of gears when the player put money on the machine. It was especially in pubs and nightclubs that these machines were placed, and then the price could just as easily be a free beer instead of coins.
The slot machines as we know them today are certainly not quite as old. Today, almost all slot machines are completely digital, so they can actually be a fraction of the size. At the moment, a small computer and a screen are really needed to play. But the developers of physical slot machines are traditional and build large machines with many details, good graphics, multiple screens, lights and everything else needed to entice you as a player to sit down in front of the machine. In 1964 came the first automatic slot machine, which is very reminiscent of the machines we play today. It was called “Money Honey” and was another important contributor to the fact that slot machines have become as popular as they are.
It was, of course, in the players’ capital. If you are in your late 20s, you may remember the time when physical slot machines were still allowed in Norway. In the late 90’s and after the 2000’s you could still spend your switch on slot machines and Jackpot 2000. These were often located at the entrances to kiosks or shops, but could also be in Bingo halls or restaurants and eateries. However, the career of these jokes was relatively short, as they were banned in 2007, after they were first licensed in the early 90’s. This is despite the fact that all slot machines around the country provided large revenues for charity and non-profit purposes. that this slot machine really did well.
In other words, these slot machines no longer exist, and you now have to go abroad if you want to spin the reels of a real “slot machine”. Admittedly, Tipping has placed around several thousand of its cash games in Bingo Halls (read about bingo games online here), at petrol stations and in kiosks, but these can hardly be compared to the traditional slot machines. Here you play on a simple computer where you can choose from a number of different cash games, which also contain a good selection of digital slot machines.
