Gambling has been around for a long time, and the slot machine is well over 100 years old. It has undergone many transformations and modern ones typically don't have a functional lever (or arm) to pull. But it's obvious how the machine got its well-earned nickname. I visited Las Vegas once, and fortunately escaped with only a slightly lighter wallet. In addition I brought back a working, but toy, version slot machine - it actually pays out (but of course we're only getting our own money back!). Unlike the real version, this one won't rob you.
