These days my trips to the casino are sometimes frantic because there are so many games and so little time to enjoy them. Gaming machines used to be mechanical (no electricity). Then the slots were electro-mechanical, and now they are computer chip driven, which lends a huge amount of flexibility to the functionality of the video screens we love to play.
That's all well and good, but with so many manufacturers bringing out new games, it's hard to keep up. That's not an issue at smaller casinos, but larger casinos that have cruised through the poor economic conditions of our country the last few years are changing their slot layout and game selection on a very steady basis. The new games are never ending. And there's a lot coming up at the G2E gaming expo in Vegas, October. Some new machines and teasers are:
IGT has Dakota Thunder, Siberian Storm, Elvis The King 3D and Golden Goddess. Williams Gaming has Kiss, Cheers, Willy Wonka and Spider-man. Konami has African Diamonds and Fortune Chaser. Bally has Grease and Jaguar Mist, and promises NASCAR stars will be at the show. Is that an indication there's a NASCAR slot coming? We'll know in a few days.
