Virtual slots started of course in land based casinos but their true growth and development came in the late 1990s and early 2000s with ease of access to the internet and faster connection speeds. Those games developed multiple play and payout features incorporating the infinite scope of virtual technology. Now, just a few years on, the world has come full circle with the individual touch coming back to the player in the form of slots on your mobile device with unbelievable choice in the slots you can play.

The early years of internet gambling were troubled by doubts about security but encryption technology is advanced enough now to ensure your financial information is secure, especially on the move with your mobile device. So the important question is how to find your real casino slots for mobile phones? The answer is use internet search on your mobile device, but choosing a company that you are familiar with is a way to go to ensure your casino app will be safe.

Now of course there are four major smart phone types out there with more on the way, and you do need a smart phone to play mobile slots. There are Apple iphone, Android, Windows and Blackberry.

It will have a page dedicated to their mobile App and information should be available on there of which devices it will function on.

So where did this modern bonanza of mobile slots come from? Well the term "slot machine" originally meant any device that was activated by a coin or token, but it was the 1895 invention by car mechanic Charles Fey of the three wheel stand alone slot machine that established what we now understand as a true slot machine. Three years later he developed this into the Liberty Bell slot machine with Diamond, spade, and heart symbols painted around each reel. Later, in 1907, competitor Herbert Mills produced a look-alike called Operator Bell using lemons, plums, and cherries, leading to the British term "Fruit Macines".

Various improvements were slowly added and then in 1964 Bally, the famous Las Vegas company brought out an all electrical slot machine. This led to the 1975 introduction of the video slot machine with virtual wheels and the history of slots had reached its ultimate platform. Virtual slots took some time to challenge the conventional machines but the endless possibilities that could be added in the virtual world has led to today's incredible choice of slot games on offer.
