Cha-ching! Dingdingdingding

Love the sounds of slot machines!! I'd spend hours a day in a casino if I could...just staring at the one-armed bandits and numbly pressing the spin button. But, since I can't afford to do that, I found a couple of fun online slots to play. Don't win any money.. but they sound the same!

~The world's first slot machine "The Liberty Bell" was invented by Charles Fey in 1899. (Thank you, Charles!)
 ~There is one slot machine in Las Vegas for every eight inhabitants.
~ An early machine gave out winnings in the form of fruit flavored chewing gum with pictures of the flavors as symbols on the reels. 

If slots are your passion, too.. then check out a few things from our pals at :

Crazy Diamonds authentic replica slot machine from goldi!

Cute slot machine ornament from morerivethead84!

And for when you get tendonitis from pulling the handle..

Slot Machine Boo-boo bags from American-Hippie!

You'll ALWAYS be a winner when you shop at!

If I had one in my home I would never get anything done. They are addicting. And they are a great selection you showed. Super blog

I do like those keno machines, too... unfortunately I can never get on one here unless I go before 8 am or after 11 pm... I think people just camp out on 'em with their water bottles, snacks, and Depends!
