Slot machines

The first slot machines came from the USA, and were invented by a German emigrant named Charles August Fey, who made a significant contribution to the development and production of slot machines at the beginning of the 20th century. Fey made the most of the American enthusiasm for everything that moves and turns. In addition, at the time Americans were fascinated by all forms of automation, and with these machines, fellow players and croupiers were no longer necessary, as you played only against the machine and yourself.
