A Brief History of Slot Machines
The first versions of a slot machine were invented in the United States in the late 1800s. The most famous slot machine developed in this time period was the Liberty Bell, which was invented by Charles Fey and had 3 spinning wheels and 5 symbols. The Liberty Bell and the other slot machines invented over the next century were generally mechanical in nature and did not even need to use electricity to work.
In fact, it wasn’t until 1963 that Bally Technologies developed the first electromechanical slot machine. Adding electricity to the machine meant that not only were there cosmetic changes such as flashing lights but that the gameplay was improved and multi-coin bets were allowed. With the advent of the Internet in the 1990s, software companies soon started developing games especially to be played online. Online games can reach a larger audience and as one can play from the comfort of their own home it is appealing to a lot of people.
With the growing demand for online slot machine games the top software companies are in constant competition with one another and thus, many companies are developing slots with the same general theme but adding their own twist or take on the themes. One such example is the romance and love inspired online slots.
Romance and Love Inspired Online Slots
There is a wide variety of romance and love inspired online slots. One of the possible reasons for this could be that more and more women are playing online slots and this theme is particularly pleasing to them. But this is not to say that men do not enjoy games of this theme too.
Many of the games have a unique twist to them that make them stand out from the rest for certain people. For example, Immortal Love is a romance and love inspired online slot that takes the theme of romance and combines it with the popular vampire theme. As you would expect, anyone with a love of vampires might be tempted to try out this game, and they would not be disappointed.
Microgaming is the leader in romance and love inspired slots. This is mostly because they have a vigorous release schedule and release new slot games every month. However, they are definitely not the only company to release romance and love inspired slots. February is the month to release romance and love inspired slots because Valentine’s Day on the 14th February has ensured that February is the month of love. This is because of the fact that that players will be more inclined to play Christmas themed slots in December, it is thought that they will be more inspired to play romance and love inspired slots in February.
An Example of a Romance and Love Inspired Slot
Jour de L’Amour, which is English translates to ‘day of love’ is an example of a romance and love inspired slot machine game with a unique twist. The name of the game is, of course, the first clue, as to this theme; but there are others too.
The slot is set in Paris, which has long been known as the city of love. To reinforce this Parisian image, you can see the Eiffel tower in the background. The symbols include gifts that one might give a lover, and the accordion based tune that plays in the background of the game is distinctly romantic. The twist in this game is that instead of people falling in love in Paris, it is cats.
