They need to make slots with bonus rounds that switch to video poker. Would get some people who only play slots exposed to VP, and I might play more slots if this came to fruition.

About the privacy cover thing which seems to be the most controversial thing on my list, the privacy cover thing is to prevent shady low lives from looking at your slot while you are playing. If I am at a slot machine minding my own business, and I get a $500 hit on a very lucky spin, I don't want some low life telling me,"Oh, what a great hit! Congratulations! Oh, by the way, I just lost my money for the week on a bad slot machine . Could you give me a $20 for the week? I mean, you do have an extra $500 win!"

A guy said on.another website that he won exactly $500 in a lucky drawing. But in order to claim his prize, he had to accept it on the very public stage. After he got the win, two burly men he had never seen before went near where he was playing with his won money and started giving sob stories about losing their money in slots and claimed they were hungry and strongly suggested he treat them to dinner at the casino restaurant with the money he publicly won. Luckily, a slot attendant was passing by and the guy gave her a look that clearly said,"Help me. These guys are harassing me," and she got the message and said something like,"We don't allow patrons to just stand around watching other patrons play. You guys will have to leave if you are not playing." She got the burly men to leave and he tipped her for helping him out.
In both The Hunger Games and in gambling, may the odds be ever in your favor. :D The hardest Mountain to climb in the world, Mount Everest nearly is Ever Rest! So ironic. :) You just won $500 in free play! You're treating me and my friend to dinner! LOL! "For about the 4096th time, let me offer a radical idea to those of you who don't like Nathan -- block her and don't visit Nathan's Corner. What is so complicated about it?" Wizard, August 21st. :D

Well, the privacy curtain will not hide what the core customer is doing to the machine from the eye in the sky. It just prevents low life shady people from seeing innocent players winnigs/credits.

If you're worried about privacy (I'm not), you can get a bit of it by playing only in the high limit room, as they are usually separate from the main floor and reasonably private.

Has it occurred to you that a "privacy curtain" would allow dirtbags to jerk off (playing with themselves while playing by themselves?)

Casinos have enough problems with morons pissing the seats and spilling liquids on the slots; the last thing they want is to have semen splattered on their slots.

Those curtains would be used for sex. Next.

Maybe you could bring in a blanket, duct tape it to the slot, then pull it over and tuck it behind your back on the chair. It will last a few minutes. I heard once a guy was talked to because he used his hoodie jacket to cover the machine, so only he could see. Security came around and told him to stop, because they need to see the machine. If he was breaking into it or just breaking it, etc.

I wouldn't mind lazy boy reclining chairs at the machines myself but Id probably fall asleep in them. That's always been a peeve of mine the chairs being uncomfortable, but the casino does that on purpose. Gambling on the machines is the only thing that works distracting the annoyance of the seat. Casinos dont really want people comfortable because comfortable people don't gamble as much as irritated uncomfortable people.

Like I said, the eye in the sky still sees everything. All casino staff will have to do is put a sign on the slot that reads,"Even with the privacy curtain, we are still watching everything you do. EVERYTHING."That would be a huge deterrent to people wanting to have sex or jack off while they play slots. ;)

How can the eye see through a non-transparent "privacy curtain?"

Only a camera sited directly above would be able to see a player otherwise shielded by a "privacy curtain," and there a helluva lot more slots than cams to surveil them one on one.

They should make every machine capable of playing every game at every denomination. That way there's no waiting. Machines could be programmed to display certain games in certain areas to give the floor the appearance of a good mix, but the player would have the option of changing to any other game, including ones with the progressive jackpots. If you really wanted to play a game for the "experience" like vibrating seats or multiscreen video cutaways, you might have to wait, but why not offer the option to play "Willy Wonka" on a "Wizard of Oz" cabinet?
