What are your slot machine pet peeves? This can either be machine features, casino policies, or player behavior. Here are mine: —In Atlantic City, there are too few Buffalo Gold machines. Especially in the smoking areas. Whenever I find them at any AC casino, they’re always occupied. —I don’t like games where you can’t stop the reels early. It makes me feel like I have no control over the outcome of the game. I’m not sure if it actually can result in different results or just speeds to the result you were going to get anyway, but I still think it feels a lot more passive and boring even if I usually do let the reels spin out. —I don’t like when games don’t have a button to request drinks. Meanwhile, at Caesars AC, you can actually order a specific drink through the slot interface, and they bring it fast. I think that’s even nicer than Vegas (at least, I haven’t encountered it). —I don’t like it when someone is playing on two machines unless they’re really playing on both machines. Usually, they only play one machine at a time, and I find that really selfish if there’s a crunch for machines. ETA: I don’t like how so many machines nowadays have a progressive component. To my mind, a huge payout like $500,000 requires a lot of less smaller payouts of, several hundred to a thousand dollars that would be very exciting for someone. I think it’s okay as a concept, but it seems like over half the machines in the casino are progressive nowadays.
