3-Reel Slots

3 Reel slot machines are common in UK pubs – usually referred to as fruit machines over here – and were also the first type of slot in the land-based casinos.

Bar-X Magic 7 Fruit MachineRegular arcade goers in the UK will probably be very familiar with Electrocoin’s popular Bar-X and Bar-X Magic 7 fruit machines…they’ve been around for years and I can remember them from…oooh…at least 10 years ago on Brighton Pier, if not longer!

And better than that – it’s bought it’s mean, crooked and somewhat streaky personality with it!

When I was younger, I confess that quite often I used to wander up the road with my last tenner and stand there for an hour or two – luck willing – pressing the buttons, stooping to look up the reels, nudging like mad before the time limit ran out and drinking the cheapest drink they served (lime ‘n’ soda in case you were wondering).
