Slot machines go way back in time and have always been popular with casino game lovers. The first ever pokies machine was brought out by an Australian company by the name Aristocrat in 1950. This game was named “Clubman” and two years later the game was revised and improved to become the “Clubmaster”. The credit for the most original creation of the slot machine goes to a man named Charles Fey and he brought out the machine in the United States.
It was not until the 1956 that pokies machines were made legal in Australia. The basic models of these machines had three reels with one, three or five lines. The jackpots offered were nothing great compared to those offered today and the interactivity of the game was also very less. It was only in the 1980s that video slot machines were introduced and this was a big step for pokies machines since Charles Fey invented the first one. These new slot machines have more reels and many more lines through which the player had more chances of winning the bonuses and jackpots offered.
Today you will find at least one if not more pokies machine in a club or casino. These pokies machine games are very popular and are loved by people of all ages. You will even find online pokies on the internet and these games have taken slot machine games to the next level. Many online casinos are making a profit by offering fun and interesting slot machine games. “Pokies” is a term which was coined by the Australians for slot machine games. In Australia people use this term to refer to these games and if you use the phrase “slot machine games” in the country then people will probably not understand what you are saying.
