This one-armed bandit always comes up a winner. The Switchables Slot Machine nightlight cover will make you feel lucky.   

This is not a self-contained night light. Switchables stained glass night light covers are designed to be used with the Switchables Nightlight Fixture (sold separately). Switchables are "switchable" because you can easily swap any one of our covers onto the same simple fixture. You can also use your Switchables cover as a suncatcher, a Christmas ornament, or with any other kind of light source. To display your Switchables cover in a window, add the optional suction cup. Switchables make gift-giving easy: Start your recipient out with a fixture and one or two covers, then buy him or her new covers on future gift-giving occasions.


Are you curious...?

Slot machines were called one-armed bandits because they were originally operated with a level on the side, and because they usually left their operators penniless. Most modern machines are entirely electronic now, but they still have that lever and they still separate gamblers from their money. Even though they operate purely on chance and the odds always favor the house, slot machines still bring in 70% of a casino's revenue.

The first gambling machine in 1891 tried to mimic a poker game, with five wheels holding 50 "cards." Players inserted a nickel, pulled the lever, and hoped for a winning poker hand. Due to the large number of possible winning hands, the machine didn't have an automatic payout mechanism. Winnings (often free drinks and cigars) were up to the proprietor. As popular as these machines were, slots didn't really take off until the Liberty Bell machine came along in 1895. Its much simpler design -- just three wheels with five symbols (horseshoes, diamonds, spades, hearts, and a Liberty Bell) -- permitted an automatic cash payoff. Three bells in a row paid the princely sum of 10 nickels.
