Fruit machines are very popular in UK pubs. You will be hard-pushed to find a pub in England, Scotland and Wales that do not have a fruit machine. Even pubs that do not offer pool tables or darts game tend to put a fruit machine in their establishment.

The slot machines in the UK were named fruit machines as the earliest versions used fruits as symbols on the reels. Symbols used were cherries, lemons, watermelons, apples, and many other known fruits. The use of fruits as symbols was due to their vibrant colors that created a clear visual separation between separate symbols.

Some people claim that the fruit symbols were used to create a feel of wholesomeness associated with fruits and have this feeling of wholesomeness generated in people approaching the fruit machine. However these are just unsubstantiated stories, although they do make marketing sense.

The traditional fruit machines are big and bulky and look like old style arcade games. They are fun machines that allow players to hold reels and nudge reels. The pub fruit machine would pay out nicely to winning players and allow a lucky player to treat their mates to a round of drinks using their winnings.
