The purpose of this project was to develop a slot machine game application based on SWITCH-technology. The main advantage of this technology is in the naturalness of its solution.

This project shows that use of automatons in event-driven systems imitation software development is very effective. Also, the object-oriented and automaton-based approach in programming combination is demonstrated.

A state machine object-oriented approach in reactive systems software development is used. This project was implemented in a Borland Delphi 7.0 in a Borland Object Pascal language.

In our opinion, this project answers a question asked by Alexander Chizov ( on : “of course, we’ve studied the finite state automaton theory, but how is it related to programming?”
