Coming Soon: 3D Slots

3D Slots

When I was a teenager, the local independent TV station (11 Alive in NYC) broadcast a coupla weeks worth of horror movies in 3D. You could either get glasses via a pull out in the Daily News or via a strategic cross promotion with tri-state area Burger Kings. I don't remember what movies they played, but I do remember getting bored after about 40 minutes and turning the tv off.

This event sparked a new interest in 3D movies with Jaws 3D, an episode of Friday The 13th in 3D and a handful of other slasher flicks. Happily, 3D laid dormant for 25 until someone had the bright idea that new digital techniques might make 3D films actually work and not look like a blue and green blurry mess.

With 3D being a big hot buzzword in the video industry, those wacky genius slot machine makers over at IGT have been busy working (and trademarking) real bonafide 3D Slots. I'm not exactly sure what this means, as all slot machines are in 3D, but I assume this means that the video portion of the gameplay features some fancy ass graphics.

In a Putney Swope world, the slot machine will scream "Eeeeediot!" in 5.1 sound then virtually slap you across the melon each time you press the "Bet Max Credits" button.

Maybe not.

Regardless, 3D Slots are on their way to invade your wallet share!
