I played that game. It's actually pretty fun.

/not a senior though

I would play that even if slots are dumb

I thought what they wanted in slots were nickels.

I broke my hip just looking at it.

Looks like fun. I'd give it a try.

So it's a slot machine with an Arab guy trying NOT to crash into a building with his flying contraption. It's got originality, I'll give it that.

If a marketer for this game (to casinos) saw your post, he'd include it in his literature.

Oh look, it's exactly what this product is supposed to do.

Of course seniors don't want this- young people do, because it was made to look like a videogame. So it's a small motion simulator ride with gambling thrown in. This, inherently, should be appealing to a younger set, whose money the casino owners want. They already have the old folks'.

Actually, it's just shaking you to empty out your pockets even faster.

I've figured out slot machines:

1. Put money in machine.

2. Machine keeps your money.

Which is clearly what senior citizens want in a slot machine

Which they will be playing right after chowing down at the all-you-can-eat buffet.
I can hear it now "Clean up on number 4!"........"Again?"

Kinda like a big shiny/noisy piggy bank but you rarely can get your money out

Goddamn, casinos are sad places.

Seems excessive to me.
I thought the charm of the slots is the mindless, repetitive "play" that is comforting in its utterly predictable nature.
I can respect the desire to feast upon the remnants of the game arcade's corpse, but this seems like the wrong market. I think they'd put in more coins to make the genie go away than to challenge him.

They have two of these at one of the casinos near me, but I'd been avoiding them because they looked unbearably cheesy. I may just have to take one for a spin, now.

Then again, I'm still pissed they got rid of the Star Trek machines. Playing Trouble With Tribbles slots was kinda awesome.

I hate slot machines. I hate them even more that the Las Vegas casinos got rid of the coin/token machines. Atleast that was sort of fun with the sound of the coins dumping into the tray and walking around with a plastic bucket. Paper ticket comes out when you win? Sheesh. A boring way to lose money made more boring.

I can lose plenty of money on craps... and atleast that's far more fun.

Luv the advances we have had in our Stupid Tax :D

swahnhennessy: Goddamn, casinos are sad places.


I couldn't come up with the right words. A lot of the time, they're like bars that only serve alcoholics.

42,000 pennies..well that's a lot to have to carry home you know.....problem is people keep playing hoping to get another ride and give it all back....cheap hooker sounds more fun to me....

Waiting for the "rocket sled" slot. You gotta put in more money if you want to play the bonus round. "More than a Dollar".

That's exactly what I want after pounding drinks for thirty straight hours.

One of my employees got injured by one of these chairs.  When you start to play the game, it asks you if you want to use the feature or not.  If not, it will lock the chair in place so it doesn't move.  However, with the power to the machine off, the chair is left in the unlocked position.  He was installing the door lock and dropped a piece and when he went to pick it up, his shift in weight caused the chair to tilt to the side basically throwing him out of it.

I thought they were into that kind of thing.

I don't think that chair moves for fun I think it moves to wake up all the old people who have fallen asleep in front of the slot machine. The next innovation for slot machines is to include a pulse rate detector and a defibrillator that goes off automatically when your pulse drops below a certain rate.

And automatically presses the roll button ;)

Seems like a good evolution of both the slot machine and the arcade game. In fact, it even helps point out the ridiculousness of some anti-gambling people's logic: in their minds, apparently, it's perfectly acceptable to put quarters into a machine for hours on end as long as there's no chance of getting any of that money back. This type of game certainly blurs the line.

We have it in our casino in Reno, also have played it at other casinos. It steals my money.

WMS Gaming used to be Williams pinball. I has a sad now.

It's all fun and games until grammy has a nip-slip then vomits all over the machine.
 
2013-01-05 11:27:38 PM
I think they're vastly overstating the possible problem this might cause. In about 4 days, when that feature is broken and the casino slaps the old "chair doesn't work" sign over it, it will blend seamlessly with the other rows of machines designed to give the elderly about 5-10 seconds of hope per pop.
