Playing Fruit Machines
Fruit machines are highly popular with slot players. They offer an inexpensive way to have a lot of fun while at the same time having a chance to make some money. In fact, they have become such a common feature in many casinos around the world that they have earned the nickname “fruit machine.”
A slot machine, more commonly called a fruit machine, fruit pug, the pineapple games, slots or pokers, is usually a gambling device that produces a game of luck for its users. The user controls a lever attached to the machine that turns the handle and pulls a string attached to the machine. When this string is pulled, a lever that looks like a hammer falls on an attached part of the machine, causing a “clang”. The result of the sound is the sound of the “swinging” that occurs when the lever is moved. The actual mechanism used in fruit machines is very similar to the mechanisms that operate traditional slot machines.
One can’t help but notice the similarity of the lever-pulling action that is used in fruit machines and slot machines. The lever in a slot machine is designed so that it can be moved only a short distance up and down the slot. To pull the string, you have to move your arm. For fruit machines, there is usually only one lever, and it’s designed in such a way that only two of your hands are required to pull it. You would use your thumb to support the other hand, and your fingers for manipulation of the lever.
Slots and fruit machines are very close cousins, even though they operate in very different ways. In the case of slot machines, the reels are always lined up in the same direction, and you aim your arm at them using your thumb to support your fingers. In both cases, you can end up making a few bounces which usually don’t cost much money, and then you are faced with an option between staying on the line and hitting the “line” and “ball” for additional points. If you hit the ball, you win a prize.
Fruit machines are the same, except that you don’t need to aim at the reels using your finger. Instead, you use a push button attached to your wand. Again, you can end up making many bounces and some winners too. When you hit the button, a computer embedded in the machine will count the lever pulls and let you know how much money is on the line.
As it was already mentioned earlier, fruit machines and traditional slot machines have one thing in common – the reels are lined up in the same direction. They are different, however, in the way that you pull the string. In a slot machine game where you hit the reels, the amount of money that can be won does not depend on the actual strike rate. The amount of money that can be won depends on how long the player will stay on the machine and how many times he hits the button. When you play with computer chips, you do not have to worry about these things.
When you play with fruit machines, you should take note of two basic things: the reels and the fruit machine. With traditional slot machines, winning requires you to count, look at the fruit machine screen, and choose the right symbol. Sometimes, this process can be very difficult, especially when playing with one-armed machines. With fruit machines, you can eliminate most of these problems by playing smart.
When playing with fruit machines, you should always try to focus your eyes on the fruit machine screen. It would be bad to lose all your concentration when you notice that the machine is paying out something. If you notice that the screen is moving, then you can proceed to stop playing for the time being. You can even go ahead and remove the coins from the machine. Do not forget to remove the key or the reset switch that is usually under the seat. Most importantly, do not leave the machine unattended as these things can cause accidents like falling off the machine or getting electrocuted.
