My task was to create images to accompany social posts that were posted on OLG Slots & Casinos Facebook pages.
Take a look at the work below:
Slot machine fruit. Where did that come from? During U.S. Prohibition, bars and “saloons” couldn’t have slot machines that paid out cash. So they changed payouts to candy, specifically to fruit-flavoured gum pieces. #FunWinsEveryTime #AjaxSlots
Whether you think the number 7 is lucky or not, it sure shows up in a lot of places. Consider there are 7 continents, 7 seas and 7 colours of the rainbow. Add to that, the 7 wonders of the world, the 7 days of the week and the stories of “The Seventh Son of a Seventh Son”. The world’s religions like 7 too. There are 7 Stations of the Cross, 7 Sacraments of Christianity and Islam recognizes Seven Heavens. The 7 Chakras are important for Hindus, and Buddhists believe in 7 reincarnations. All in all, it’s no surprise that such a popular number feels lucky.
Sorry to say, it is not.

If you like playing slots, you can thank this guy. Nobody knows what inspired him, but a mechanic named Charles Fey created the first slot machine in the late 1890’s. Winnings were only small cash payouts or a voucher for a beer, but the machines became hugely popular entertainment. By 1909, Fey’s hometown of San Francisco had more than 3,000 of them. #FunWinsEveryTime
Early slot machines used card suits but with Prohibition those were replaced with fruit symbols. Lemon, cherry, melon and pineapple icons told the player what flavour they’d won. Today, gum has long ceased being the coveted payout, yet fruit symbols are still used in many machines. Maybe it’s the bright colour or fun that fruit represent. Even in Britain slot machines are still called “fruities.”  #FunWinsEveryTime
