Quoted from mkecasey:
I have a question for those who own slot machines. But I want to preface that I am not making fun of you and I'm just trying to gain a better understanding. For those who own slot machines, what is the appeal? I understand why people like slot machines at a casino - a fun opportunity to maybe win some money. But in a home setting, I don't get it. But I want to get it! So, let me know what I'm missing.
Part of the reason I ask is because I'm picking up a High Speed from a coworker's house and she said they also have a slot machine that I'm welcome to take if I want it. I feel like I should take it because... why not? But if there is something in particular that makes them fun in a home environment, I want to know about it.
What makes them fun is my wife can play with Our money, have the same thrill, yet not walk away with that horrible looser feeling. For us its an inhouse 401K. Money goes in but does not leave. Stack-O-Cash. True, slots Can grow boring and we just get the itch on occasion. An old school 3 spinner will grow old quick but If you go with the Bally Alpha 2 or WMS Bluebird 2 type setups you can Easily swap out the games via software compact flash card to keep it fresh for a Long time. I have Hundreds of titles and it is always an attraction to guests visiting. My only rule is (since I set the internal odds...) if you play with YOUR money I will gladly pay! If you are playing with My credits just have fun. lol
