A slot machine or simply slots is a casino gambling machine with three or more reels which spin when a button is pushed. Slot machines are also known as one-armed bandits because they were originally operated by a lever on the side of the machine (the one arm) instead of a button on the front panel, and because of their ability to leave the gamer penniless. They appear in Fallout, Fallout 2, Fallout: New Vegas its add-on Dead Money, the Fallout 4 add-on Vault-Tec Workshop, and Fallout 76 in Vault 51.

Slots can be played via dialogue in Fallout and Fallout 2. In Fallout 1 some slots are nuclear war themed and to win 3 nukes are required. Low intelligence characters cannot play slots, as they confuse the machine with a toy or another NPC.


Bets can range from 1 - 200 chips. Chips must be purchased from the casino cashier being frequented. Note that if you are having trouble finding the cashier look for a person behind a barred counter.


Payouts are calculated by the bet amount and the payout multiplier.

Players should be aware that there is an additional no-win symbol on the reels that is not mentioned by the game. Players not familiar with slot machines may wonder why the symbols do not always line up. This is due to the fact that the divider 'line' in between the mentioned symbols is also a symbol. If one of the 'lines' falls in between the indicator arrows on the slot machine then the only way for a player to win any money is with Cherry symbols.


Slots can only be played at the following locations:
