Prohibition became an impulse of slots development

Prohibition that was adopted by the US Senate in 1920 led to discontent of many American continent residents. It was annoying not only for the representatives of alcohol business.The owners of slots also suffered to some extent. It was not profitable to set up slots in pubs, small eateries and luxury restaurants. The number of visitors in such establishments not just rapidly decreased but practically approached to a zero indicator. Slots turned into a pile of useless iron from a source of regular income.

Then owners of slots decided to sell them practically for nothing not to clutter up bars. The representatives of casinos which still remained afloat immediately paid attention to such offer. It appeared that slots had a set of advantages from the point of view of gambling houses workers. They didn't need the work of croupier, were simple and inexpensive in service, and it was possible to get prize-money without any participation of an administration. It seemed very profitable to many people, so cheap slots were quickly sold out.

It is interesting to note that nowadays slots bring the most part of profit to casino's owners. As a result, it is said that American prohibition became lucky in life of slots.
