Slot Machines: A Pictorial History of the First 100 Years of the World's Most Popular Coin-Operated Gaming Device
This pictorial history of the first 100 years is full of interesting stories about the Slot Machine. From the ornate mechanical marvels of the 1890s, evolved the hi-tech electronic slots of the 1990s. The pictures are great, covering vintage images of: the first poker slot machine, ornate wheel machines, cast iron bell machines, and so much more. "History has its great and near great warriors, its statesmen and its moral leaders. Coin machines, too, have their great, near great and even legendary characters from whence came our coin machines in the first place. They were Charles Fey, H.S. Mills, Adolph Caille and Thomas Watling. Each gave to posterity the benefits of a life of study and sacrifice in the field they liked best." (Coin Machine Journal July 1949) It is to these men and Edmund Fey that this book is dedicated.
