Slot Machines: The Next Generation Part II
Thank the almighty blessed Lord it is Friday.
Friday morning, 8:40am EST, and I’m already dying a slow death of boredom. And this has only been a 4 day week. Ugh. Calgon take me away.
Since I don’t have Calgon to take me away, I have to settle for a blog article. Continue on for part 2 of my slot machines reviews. If you missed part 1 just click here.
I’ve been to many different casinos in several different places over the years. Las Vegas, Albuquerque, New Orleans, Atlantic City. During my travels I’ve seen some pretty cool and pretty funny character based machines. I began taking pictures and collecting some of the best. In the second part of this slot machine article I’ll show you some more of my favorite slot machines.
Star Wars – This is one of the coolest slot machines out there. Very nice graphics, cool game play, and I love the bonus games where you try to blow up the Death Star. Even the chairs you sit on have Star Wars written on them. Very, very cool. It’s even fun to just sit and watch someone play.
Monster Mansion/The Munsters/Ghost Island – I love these Halloween/monster themed slots. There are usually several on the floor at all times. Monster Mansion is actually branded with the Universal Studios logo so it is using the fully licensed Universal Monsters. The gameplay is okay, but the visuals are really cool. The Munsters machine is obviously based on the tv show, which I loved. Unfortunately it is the old 3 reel type slot and not the graphics heavy video game like slot like Monster Mansion. Other scary themed slots include Ghost Island where you are trapped on an island, go figure, full of ghosts. You have to capture them all to win bonus games. Very neat.
Texas Tea – I’ve actually seen this slot in almost every casino I’ve been to. Apparently, for the last few years, this has been the most popular slot machine. More people play these slots than any other. Surprising to me that it’s so popular. It’s vaguely based on the tv show Dallas, showing big Cadillacs, oil wells, rich Texans, etc. Entertaining, yes, but still very middle of the road.
Dam Lumberjack Beavers – This is it. My piece de resistance. My coup de grace. If I were Orson Welles, this would be my Citizen Kane. Dam. Lumberjack. Beavers. Not much else needs to be said. It’s like Snakes on a Plane or Sharks in a Honda Civic. Simple, to the point. Awesome.
