The history of Sizzling Hot and other slot games

The world of casino games isn’t known only to connoisseurs. Some games are so popular that everyone has heard of them, even if they live in a country where gambling isn’t popular. Of these are slot games, in their two renowned variations: Book of Ra and Sizzling Hot. Every casino has slot machines and no one can resist the temptation of trying them out when they pass by them. Apart from being very popular, slot games have a very long history – in fact, if you tell your great grandfather about them, he’ll definitely know what they are and he might have hit the jackpot himself. Given the fact that games like Sizzling Hot are so loved and known, why not take a little journey into their past and see how this worldwide phenomenon started?

At first, there were poker slot machines, invented in the 1880’s. As the name suggests, they were based on poker, but, unlike more modern machines, they didn’t have a direct payout system, so winning was a matter of luck followed by a drink or whatever prize the owner saw fit. These machines were very popular, but very easy to manipulate. Bar owners would often take out cards from the machine, so that players couldn’t get the combination right. Then, in 1887 took place the invention that gave slot machines astronomic proportions: Charles Fey invented the fruit machine. Unlike the poker slot machines, these had a direct payout system and they used five symbols: cherries, oranges, watermelons, apples and the bar symbol – and this is how the Sizzling Hot game was born. Generally, the reward for winning consisted of sweet, which is why these machines also went under the name of vending machines. Of course, things changed in time and today casinos give financial rewards for winning. After the invention of fruit machines came the invention of electromechanical slots, which marks the beginning of a golden era of slots. They could be found everywhere, from bars to gas stations. Although it had a lever, this component was used only for decoration.

After that, the 1990’s came and, as technology advanced, players had at their disposal a wide range of slot machines to choose from: 3 reel slots, 5 reel slots, video poker and many more. A slot machine is essential in every casino and even other frequented establishments, such as amusement parks and bars, have one. Last, but not least, we have the most evolved form of slot games on the ladder: online slots. The first website with such games was launched in 1995, but today there are hundreds of websites that enthusiastic players can try. Based on the computer, they require and Internet connection and many websites offer them for free. All the user has to do is use the virtual credit and try his luck. Even though they don’t have a physical presence, online slot games are really popular and exert the same fascination even now, after so many years. In fact, the online sphere offers an advantage, because players benefit from the wider range of themes, inspired from music, movies or mythology, like in the case of Book of Ra.
