Patents are a vital resource for slot machine research and restoration. They record in detail some of the most innovative and successful designs, together with others which never went into production, or which have not come down to us as surviving examples. This incomplete list includes British patents filed for non-British machines and some foreign and non-coin-operated (but related) patents. Application dates are given in preference to acceptance dates. If you know of other British slot machine patents, please send details to the Archive or use the Postbox. British patents can be viewed at the British_Library (and various other reference libraries). From 1920 onwards they are online at the European Patent Office. Thanks to Simon Parkes for his great work sifting through these.
