A slot machine is a casino gambling machine having three or more wheels which spin on pushing of a button. These machines are also recognised as one-armed bandits as earlier these machines used to be operated by a lever on its side instead of front panel button. These were called bandits as they have the ability to leave the gamer penniless (bandit).
Slot machines are also known as fruit machines, slots, poker machines, or as they are known down under, pokies. Online pokies is the most popular term for these games in Australia and New Zealand. Slots, or pokies, are casino gambling machines with 3 or more reels which spin when a button is pushed. Another term that you may have heard around is one-armed bandits, because in the old days, instead of pushing a button, players would have to pull a lever on the side of the machine.
