Ever since Charles D. Fey took steps to create his critically acclaimed Liberty Bell slot machine all the way back in the late 1800s these insatiably good little gambling games have swept the world thousands of times over, and in the 21st century online slots have become the de facto No. 1 gambling world on the planet.
