History of Video Pokies
The very first video pokie was introduced to the casino floors of Las Vegas in 1975 by Walt Fraley. This video pokie – named Fortune Coin – was very simple, which was a deliberate. It wasn’t popular right off the bat as people were worried about the integrity of the video pokie and therefore decided to keep playing on the more traditional games found on the casino floor, such as blackjack and roulette.. It wasn’t until 1979 that video pokies started to become very popular with the introduction of video poker and nowadays video pokies are possibly the most popular form of gambling in the world!
