The answer to this question is a little complicated. In general, slots are not considered real money. However, there are a few specific cases where slots can be considered as real money.
For example, if a slot machine has a payout that is based on how much money you put in, then it can be considered as real money. Another example is if a slot machine has bonuses that offer larger payouts if you hit certain slots.
However, the vast majority of slot machines do not have these types of payouts, and so they are not considered as real money. In general, slots are designed to be fun and entertaining, but they are not meant to be used for gambling purposes.
