Every Canadian online casino player loves a game of slots, but the question is where does this popular casino game originate. Slot machines can be traced back to many years, although there has been some debate about who actually invented the slot machine. There are two accounts which seem to be accepted.
The first account recounts the story of the slot machine as being invented by Charles Fey who was an American. In 1887 he invented what was known as the Liberty Bell machine which had three reels and five symbols which were a Liberty Bell, spade, diamond and a heart and a horse shoe. The other account says that Charles Fey invented the machine in 1895 and that two other inventors, Sittman and Pitt were the first to invent the slot machine in 1891. This machine had 50 playing cards which spun five on a drum and the reels would have a five card poker hand. A player would receive payouts depending on the value of the hand.
