    What do you guys think of this first 3D machine? I do not like how it bothers my eyes. I have watched others play it too and then they get off commenting "the screen bothers me" and that they will not play it again. I have also had no luck with it paying well either and no bonus.

    Do you have to bring your own 3D glasses or is it sort of like the Godzilla slots?

    Saw it at Pechanga the other night, as I walked by, but did not stop to check it out. I'll check it out next time and see how my eyes/head feels.

    I played this briefly and it was an interesting display.
    Eventually I realized it was tracking my head/eyes in order to generate the right 3D image. And just by turning my head side to side I could change what I saw. Than also also meant the 3D only worked well for the person playing.

    The only "3D" game I've seen was Mystical Mermaid Returns. It wasn't that great of an effect and you could switch to 2D mode if you wanted.

    Looked all over Vegas for them with no luck.
    But here are 2 more installations from their facebook page:
    Morongo Casino in California
    Foxwoods Resort and Casino and Mohegan Sun in Connecticut.

    I think the Azure machines are the ones to worry about when it comes to your eyes.

    Pechanga has them too. I think I heard a casino in Vegas has it now as well, MGM I I think, but not quite sure. I am sure they are at more vegas casinos now from when I heard a few weeks ago.

    This game, like most IGT 3-D overlays, arent in the same ballpark as Sphinx. Sphinx has jump out at you 3D and submersion 3D. Kind of like looking into a box with many layers. The tech used is much like the Nintendo 3DS and that was proved to cause eye strain. But that was with kids playing videos games hours on end. I think they assume slot players are jump in jump out kind of crowd. But you can shut the 3D off on these as well if it bothers you.

    Just read an article about this machine in the TR magazine and it sounds pretty interesting.
    Looking forward to giving it a try next trip.

    I fed a Ben into one of these machibes at MGM this weekend. I dont even recall getting a chance to experience the 3D...credits went from 100 to 0...no bonuses. Will give it another chance at my local casino.
