From the perspective of the player, it is much more simple the player inserts a coin into the slot, pull the lever and the reels start spinning. She stopped a moment, then the gain falls if there is gain. These mechanical slot machines have been replaced with electrical machines that operated on the same principle.
There are dozens of ways to determine the gains , the simplest being to measure the depth of the notches discs rolls. Thus, the catch assigned to the jackpot is deeper than other screens. Other systems exist, such as having a series of metal contacts on the rollers, or use photoelectric cells which generate a current according to the light exposure.
Most machines are designed in current to give the impression of being mechanical models, but they are actually managed by computer. The computer uses the motors to spin the reels and stop at a certain place. A random number generator (RANG: random number generator) ensures that the same probability exists for each draw to win the jackpot.
Controlled by computer systems have made slot machines much more adaptable. For example, players can now use the money directly into their account rather than dropping tokens each gain. They can also track their gains and losses more easily. Yellow light actuated by the player, used to call a casino attendant.

Detector coin or token unlocks the lever.
