Some Famous Slot Machines Cheaters and their Story

2 May 2013

Slot machines are some of the most entertaining games in the casino industry, because using them does not require any special skills, any legal-age player being able to try his luck at these types of games. Many gamblers have tried to figure out ways to cheat at slot machines, some of them even succeeding at that time.
The most famous slot machines cheater was Tommy Glen Carmichael, who invented a device which resembled a monkey paw, considering that it was simply a piece of metal which had some hooks at the end. The main idea was that when the cheater inserted this metal device in the payout chute, when the slot machine paid any amount of winnings, the cheater would have held the door which released coins and the machine would throw out all the coins it contained. Other cheaters tried to make their own devices, some of them even using wire clothing hangers, which didn’t work all the time though.
Others used additional tactics which were not linked to the mechanics of the machines, some cheaters using small light boxes which were supposed to confuse the device’s light sensor, which supposedly forced the machine to overpay the gambler. Nowadays though, it has become quite hard to cheat on a slot machine, considering that in land based casinos, surveillance cameras are placed all over the establishment, while devices which are sold online and are supposed to help cheaters succeed by using them, are most surely not going to work. Our slot developers offer games which have passed every security that has been made, providing you with the most suitable online gambling solutions.
