Today at High 5 Blog, we’ll continue sharing some interesting and important facts about slot machines with our slot lovers.
Fact #5 Slot machines didn’t always give out cash prizes!
Slot machines had become a fixture in several drinking establishments, and during Prohibition in the late 19th and early 20th century, alcohol and gambling were made illegal across the United States. This meant that in order to keep up with the time, Slot machines were “replaced” with fruit machines. These machines dispensed fruit candies and gum instead of cash prices. However, Speakeasies were not only places where patrons could enjoy alcohol illegally, they could also enjoy the original slot machines!
Fact 6# You’ll never believe this about the Las Vegas Strip!
Did you know that the Famous Las Vegas Strip is not located within the city limits of Las Vegas! The strip actually comes under the jurisdiction of Clark County!
