Now Playing: Monty Python and the Holy Grail Slot Machines

By far the quirkiest geek-oriented slot machine I've seen was in a dive casino just off the Las Vegas Strip: The Monty Python and the Holy Grail video slot machine. Set up as a penny slot, it was cheap, easy and momentarily profitable to explore during a recent trip. (I've listened to the soundtrack, but haven't seen the Holy Grail Broadway play.)

Set in a cabinet topped by an appropriately cheesy-looking golden grail, the reels featured a mix of images from the 1975 movie -- thn Rabbit) and Arthur and his Knights. Hitting certain combinations would bring up video clips from the movie -- the Knights who say Ni!, the Black Knight getting his limbs cut off, song-and-dance routines, and other classic silliness.

When I played I also got the French Castle bonus, where the screen shows you a castle with battlements guarded by insulting French Knights -- you select a knight to get your bonus. I never saw them, but manufacturer IGT's literature says there also are Trojan Rabbit and Black Knight sequences.
