    Which slot themes don't exist but you think should exist?

    I love The Hunger Games but when I searched for a slot with that theme I couldn't find one

    Also what about Harry Potter? It's so huge I'm shocked there's not a slot!

    I suppose the possibilities are endless. I'd almost enjoy a zero bonus round just to hear "zero. point. zero" if there was an Animal House slot

    I always thought LOST would be a good slot. Almost endless possibilities with the multitude of themes in the show. There are also the numbers (4,8,15,16,23,42) that could come into play.

    I believe the two examples you picked are currently illegal under section 14.025 3. (c) of Nevada gaming regulations.

    Any literature deemed as "juvenile" must have 21 years pass before it can become a slot machine theme. And yes, "The Hunger Games" is also juvenile literature.

    "Harry Potter" should be available to become a slot machine in 2019.

    "The Hunger Games" in 2029.

    And "Animal House" was already attempted by IGT over 10 years ago. But one could argue it's worth trying again with better video imaging of movie clips.

    As for other themes that have yet to be attempted. Um...what about a "Married with Children" slot? "Charlie's Angels"? "Seinfeld"?

    Problem is, there are so many themes available. But if companies create shitty slot math, shitty gameplay, and/or boring bonuses, it's doomed. Recent examples: "The Jetsons" and "Caddyshack" (predicting the latter one as it's still somewhat available).

    Seinfeld/Kramer is tres obvious as a potential.

    Since we are going way back, how about an "All In the Family" or "ALF" slot?
    I wish they would bring back the Top Gun slot.
    The Animal House slot seems like fun.
    What about Back To the Future?

    I believe that a Back to the Future slot came out within the last couple of years. It was Ok, but nothing to write home about.

    Yeah IGT has already failed twice on it. Copyright 2006 and 2013...lol. I couldn't hit shit on the latter game. I want to say Casino Royale may still possibly have it.

    I'd like to see a Spot The Hooker slot. Choose a working girl and earn money all night long (heh heh). Choose a slutty chick heading to Drai's...bonus over.

    I thought a Vegas Vacation slot was obvious. The bonus games write themselves: the Uncle Eddie's rainy day fund. Craps with Nick Papagorgio, Pick a number, and the don't be stingy buffet picks.

    They'd have to incorporate this gem into the crap-results bonus round

    I'd play the hell out of that game, provided it's a well done one and not a piece of junk like the Back to the Future slot. I don't think it'll happen, though, as I don't think Jerry and Larry care for that kind of commercialism.

    There used to be a fairly common buffet-themed machine, and I actually saw it at Gold Coast maybe a year ago.

    I would think since Jerry is an occasional at Caesars that he might like it. LOL, I guess we may have to wait until the residuals from syndication dry up. :)

    I can envision "Hello Newman!" being the "Collect" pick in the bonus round! :)
