Charles Fey knew he had hit the big time with his invention of a slot machine, back in 1887. Since then, with the invention of the modern day slot machines in the 1930’s, the gambling industry has adapted accordingly and realised the worth of such a simple game.
Back in the early days of slots, the casinos demoted the machines to the perimeter of the casino floor.

There are many myths as to how online slots really work. Each online slot has a component known as the Random Number Generator and the purpose of this is to generate random sequences in millisecond intervals. The RNG will generate random numbers each time an online casino slot player hits the spin button or hits the max bet button.
The RNG is found in all online casinos and determines the outcome of all of the online slots that a casino has to offer.

There are number of key questions punters need to ask themselves before they choose a bookmaker at which to start enjoying laying wagers on horse racing events:
- Which sportsbook offers them the most value?
