Gross: Gene Simmons Hawks KISS Slot Machine

Daniele Lorentine, assistant slot manager for the Tohono O'oodham Gaming Enterprise, which owns three tribal casinos in Arizona, knows that all too well.

Lorentine planted herself in front of a "Rock and Roll All Night" slot by Progressive Gaming International at the expo Tuesday. The slot, based on the famed KISS song, features popping flashbulbs, animated band members and, of course, replays of the song.

And more from the R-J:
The celebrities have their reasons for lending their names to the machines. But fans don't really care; they were just glad for the chance to meet their favorite stars. "It's past due," said Kiss fan Thomas Denison, an expo attendee from Las Vegas. He was filming Stanley and Simmons as they greeted a long line of fans next to their game. With the giant Kiss sign hanging above the machines, it will stand out in casinos, he said, and even draw players of all ages, just because they're Kiss fans.

"I first saw them in concert in 1976 and I was 5. They kind of bridge the age gap. It's the makeup," he explained.

"I tinkered with the idea of bringing their action figures and having them sign them but that might have been too geeky."
