    If you have seen these, you know what I am talking about. There are the Panda Machines, Dragons, Orbs, Musketeers, and others. They are by far the brightest and loudest machines on the floor. I swear some people must have induced epileptic seizures from them. We have seen/played them at V/P, Mirage, NYNY, and Aria.

    We seem to win on them every time this year. The bonus rounds are long, often,...and slow which makes your money last even longer. We have only seen ones that are penny machines.

    How do you like them?

    I simply love them! I'm a huge fan of Aruze Gaming (the manufacturer of most of those titles) and really enjoy the bright lights and sounds of their games. Everytime I play them, I'll turn both the brightness and volume all the way up! :evillaugh

    The thing I hate about the really loud ones is the fact that they are always right next to the machine I'm playing at.

    Since someone mentioned Paradise Fishing, now I know what the OP is talking about. I sat at one of these when I stayed at the Silverton last month. When I got a load of how loud it was, I cashed out immediately. I can take sound on a machine, but some are turned up way too high. Even the lowest sound level is too high, sometimes.

    "Caveman Keno" is a bad one for video poker players.

    I really hate loud machines. And the bright lights truly hurt my eyes. I am always looking for a way to reduce the sound and or brightness of the machines. I usually wear noise-canceling headphones and listen to my ipod when I'm in a casino.

    I love me some ORBS. They are everywhere i play..........Caesars and the HO have them. And yes, the bonus rounds are long which is a major factor in prolonging your play. Sort of like Viagra. When i was at Caesars a little over a week ago, the bank of about 8 machines (near Pussycat Dolls Lounge) was hard to get in because of the non stop bonus rounds. I broke a hundy (10,000 credits for the newbies), and i played for hours never dipping under 8000. Basically i used a $20 bill to regale in frivolity till the wee hours of the morning while observing the Dolls behaving badly.

    You do realize the sound can be controlled by the player.

    Ahhhh, not good. My wife turns the machine brigtness and sound all the way to "low". She wonders why she loses and I try to let her know that the machine expects her to play the machine as it was meant to be played. When you change the volume and sound to "low", the machine realizes this and makes you lose quickly so it can get a new player :evillaugh

    These machines sound cool. I've never seen a game that let you control the brightness. Volume, yes - and we always turn ours all the way up. The new one's with the motion seats let you control how much the seat moves, which is cool - again, we always have ours at the highest setting. We are there for the sensory overload!

    Yes, I do realize that. And I use the feature on machines that are available. However, some machines that do not have that feature and are turned up loud by the casino itself.

    They are cool. Very bright! Not like anything you have seen before and their numbers at casinos have increased tremendously over just the past 6 months. Many of them have symbols on the reel that are 3D and actually are raised from the reel. When not being used, the reels have symbols that light up like back-lit shiny gold and silver Holiday wrapping.

    The video on the Azure website is not even close to how bright and loud they are in person.

    Here is a video that shows the brightness a bit better.

    1tEhV12aUF4 or this crazy win on a .30c bet....

    I also think Azure needs to make a name for themselves and these machines. Another reason to have a good return. We bet max and get this quite often...

    Several trips ago we were playing Spanish 21 at The Venetian. It was on the corner of a row of tables and right across from this obnoxious slot machine. I mentioned it to the dealer and pit as a joke like "don't you ever get tired of this?" and they said they had the whole script memorized and could hum all songs and sound effects on cue.

    It was crazy loud.

    They said "ya know if it is bothering you you could always fill out a comment card" and I took the hint that they wanted me to since their complaints fell on deaf ears.

    So I filled it out.

    I told my wife most people know the machines and don't like them...obviously loud and obnoxious. Her comment? "I love them as long as they keep paying me money" :)

    There are a couple of things which you can do. Play at a machine that has off set banking, these machines don't require someone sitting next to you. The bank will be in an oval/circular.
    If you want to play a slot in a bank of horizontal machines and it's too loud, you can turn down the machine/machines (if no one is playing them) while still playing your own. Some people (like me) don't mind the noise, isn't that why we are in Vegas?) So before playing a machine, you can scope out the other machines and make sure the volume is set at a reasonable rate.
    If you're in a bank that has no volume control, and is horizontal in nature, and has many people playing them.....well, visit the library.....LOL...j/k.

    Haha I agree. I am not against machines.

    If there was one that screamed like a banshee at jet engine decibels that paid out big - I'd be sitting right in front of it
