Episode 23: Classic Slots

Rightly called One Armed Bandits!

Page Last Updated: April 1, 2006


Slot Machines, commonly known as one-arm bandits, were originally created as amusement for the spouses of gamblers. As the machines advanced and the payouts increased, these machines became more and more popular. Now in most casino's, slot machines outnumber table games by a large margin. Why? They make more money for the casino then table games do. Payouts on most slot machines are far worse than that of most table games. Why do people play these games? They are easy to play (you simply put your money in the machine and pull the handle) and offer the potential of big winnings. The fact that the machines take in far more money then they dish back out seems to be an ignored point by most slots players.

Using the Console

Creating text games is interesting, but my goal was also to present the game in a way that would simulate a teletype machine as close as possible. This is why the game uses my console.

My Teletype Emulator is designed to simulate playing the game on an old teletype machine, down to the dot matrix output. Anybody who has used an old printer knows how slow they were. They were also noisy, but out of the goodness of my heart, I decided to leave the noise out.

For getting input from the user, I decided to go with a fancy LCD model, in which what you type will be send to a LCD display for your approval before being transmitted to the machine. Unlike real machines, my terminal is intelligent and will only let you enter something when the program is requesting input. Any other typing is ignored!
