So, this game is called Liberty Bell. The first game was created in 1895 by the car mechanic from San Francisco, named Charles Fey. It is interesting to note that you can still see the original machine at the Liberty Belle Saloon & Restaurant in Reno, Nevada. It included three reels with horseshoes, a cracked Liberty Bell symbol, and the following pictures of three card suits: hearts, diamonds, and spades. One had to pull the lever to spin the reels. Hence, the reels stopped on the varying symbol combinations after every spin. The player received coins once three same symbols appeared in a row. The gamer got the biggest payout of 50 cents or 10 nickels once three Liberty bells appeared in a row. Afterwards, the winning combination came out and then, the bell rang and the machine ejected coins.
