Slot production has become my competitive market in recent years. Not so long ago, in the 1970s, about 90 percent of the market was owned by one company, Bally Gaming Systems. Therefore, during that time, if you play a slot machine, you are most likely playing a machine made by Bally. There are now more than a dozen slot machine manufacturers on the market, including software designers who make slot machines for online casinos. The following, although not an exhaustive list, are examples of some of the biggest names in traditional slot machine manufacturing.
AC Coin & Slot was founded in 1978 in Pleasantville, New Jersey. I don’t know about you, but when I watched Reese Witherspoon and Tobey Maguire in Pleasantville, I had no idea that the city was real. I certainly don’t think it’s in New Jersey, even though the Garden State section looks pretty pleasant. After all, AC Coin & Slots began building slot machines around the same time gambling was legalized in New Jersey and now, apart from selling its own slots, the exclusive distributor of slots made by International Game Technology in Atlantic City.

Aruze Corporation, based in Japan, manufactures slot machines and other products. They are licensed to manufacture and distribute slot machines in Nevada, New Jersey, and Mississippi. Aruze Gaming America, their US branch, is based in Vegas and is a 100% subsidiary.
Atronic Americas is not, as one might expect, a company based in North, South or Central America. This is actually a German company. For some reason, he didn’t think Atronic Deutchland was good. It has a nice ring if you ask me. After all, the company started in 1994 and has become the third largest slot machine manufacturer in the world.
