Hot in Las Vegas Slots: What’s ‘Fallin’ 2012 Edition

IT’S ALMOST AUTUMN!

Honestly, not the most colorful change here in Vegas, but  autumn starts Sept. 22 at 10:49am (we had to Google that) so let’s see what’s new and colorful around the slot floors as the temperatures hit 100 degrees for the last couple times in 2012.

If you did a lot of driving, you could play seven times a week.

Before we get to the newest slot machines in Las Vegas we’re going to use this gray box to frame the free video and slot tournaments going at our casinos in Oct. (we’ll update for the other autumn when we know). These all run until around 7pm the days of the events. Your first entry is free (swipe at the kiosk). There’s a nice top prize for each and cashes for other top scorers.

  • Mondays: at Texas Station, free Slot Tournament (click on poster to the right here)

These are all Tuesday and all Video Poker:

And on Thursdays

Now fun Vegas slots stuff for the fall!

As always, if you have any questions … let us know below … and gooood luck!

Hee, Hee … at the time of this post the Michael Jackson (RIP) slots are on the floor at Boulder, Fiesta Henderson, Palace, Red Rock and Texas (pic), and will be moon-walking at all our big casinos by end of Sept. Extra: there’s a Smooth Criminal Bonus Round!

Now you’ll find these Dragons slots at all our casinos (at Palace here), but you won’t find them at any other casinos in town as we have a two-year exclusive “local’s” deal.

More Dragons at Santa Fe Station or Fiesta Henderson, we forget.

OK, a quick story about Ella’s ginormous jackpot at Palace Station. She was in line at the Oyster Bar and decided to try $40 in the machine while waiting. So, if the Oyster Bar at Palace wasn’t so darn delicious and popular, she may have never made our blog … oh, and won like a quarter million out the door. Congrats again!

Good game show. Now at Green Valley Ranch.

This one from GVR got a good conversation going on facebook … do you keep the Straight Flushes or go for the Royal(s)?

He’s packin’ … from the old bar game, at Boulder.

Colossal Wizards and Giant’s Gold are the latest Colossal Reels Themes from WMS at Santa Fe Station.

Used a fancy phone app to show the features of the new “The Game of Life,” now at many of our casinos.

She’ll get you, my pretty … now at Red Rock.

Shiny! The Gold and Crystal from Aruze now over by the Bingo Room at Santa Fe Station.

Nelson is feeling goooood after hitting an Extreme Reversible Royal for $53,315 at Boulder Station.

We Tarzan/We also Jane at Fiesta Henderson.

The sign says Duck Stamps at Sunset Station is a Hot New Game.

Pretty.

also now at Sunset.

Hot in Slots: ‘The Summer (2012) of Jackpots’ Edition

The endless summer has ended, this latest Hot in Slots post is newer

FIRST, LET’S WRAP up the Cadillacs and Cash promotions from May where there were many winners and smiling faces.

Next, in June many of our casinos are holding Free (open-to-the-public, anyone-with-a-card-can-play) Video Poker Tournaments.

OK, onto the greatest and latest slot machines in Las Vegas now, or soon to be, on our casino floors.

At this time, we can also share some info about “upcoming” new slots and releases:

  • The new Superman from Aristocrat should be landing on our floors by the end of June.
  • The new Michael Jackson game will install at all our casinos sometime in July. The MJ game is still pending gaming approval so we don’t have a firm date yet.
  • And we think the new Gone With The Wind theme is happening this summer, once approved.

One more thing, you can play/practice your Video Poker skills on all our facebook pages.

As always, if you have any questions … let us know below … and gooood luck!

Of course Super Jose is playing the new Superman at Fiesta Rancho with his lucky t-shirt!

Elvis is in the building … at Fiesta Henderson (above) and Red Rock Resort. More of our casinos will be adding as well in June. We used one of those iPhone apps for this pic. Thank you, thank you very much.

Clue is now at Sunset Station as well as at Boulder, Fiesta Henderson, Red Rock, Santa Fe, Sunset and Texas.

Santa Fe Station is the first casino in the world! with Monster Jackpots slots from WMS Gaming … fun video …

 

Time for a winner: Kevin won $10,000 playing Double Bucks at Sunset.

In our Spring 2012 post, a couple folks asked about “eCraps.” So, at the time of this post, we have electronic craps at GVR (video), Red Rock, Santa Fe & Sunset with Boulder Station coming soon. Let it roll…

 

Texas Station Slot Director Rick Scheer likes “Sheer Magic” from Ainsworth because it’s a homophone with his name. Homophone, is that the correct word? Anyway, Ainsworth is new to Nevada and Station Casinos has the most Ainsworth-themed games in Las Vegas.

We like this one for the 4th of July. No draw needed at Fiesta Henderson.

Red Rock’s new “Beat the Field” has a horse-racing theme … I’ll Have Another jackpot please!

IGT’s Wheel Of Fortune Triple Extreme just installed at Barley’s, which by the way has the best beer ever.

New King Of Dragons & Bamboo Panda at Wildfire Lanes.

Take your shot at Big Buck Hunter at Santa Fe Station.

Six new Spielo games at Boulder Station in front of the Railhead.

Mick asked about Super Team in our last Hot in Slots. Well, here it is at Santa Fe … Red Rock and Boulder, too.

Da Dum, Da Dum, Da Dum, Da Dum … Red Rock got Jaws.

… and Outback Jack

Red Rock also just added Aladdin …

Hot in Slots: Spring ‘Into Jackpots’ 2012 Edition

  • OUR CAR-A-Day promotion, came and went in February, but its winners live on
  • We celebrated March, with madness in the Sports Books, but those memories will soon be gone
  • Now it’s springtime, so let’s start fresh, anew, with a rhyming po-em

OK, sorry about that, springtime gets us excited so let’s just get to the new games and promotions across our slot floors, shall we, starting with the Viva Jackpots Progressive exclusively at the high-limit room at Santa Fe Station. The Viva Bonus is a two-level random mystery bonus that … oh, we’ll just let Santa Fe Slots Director Vinny explain it …

 


 

Got a question or comment for one of our slot managers like Vinny? Let us know below!

The latest version of Wheel of Fortune, Triple Extreme Spins, is now at Red Rock, Santa Fe Station and the Fiestas.

Electronic Craps, near the Garage Bar at Texas Station, also got one of those auto Roulette games (below) now at Santa Fe Station. Go ahead, give it a spin ...

 

 

Let's get a winner in here. Caroline hit the Nickel Reversible Royal for $9,028 at Palace Station.

Classic Penny MegaBucks back at Boulder.

Over on WMS Gaming’s YouTube page you can learn more about the POWER SPINS slots available at Green Valley Ranch and Red Rock Resort.

Like the sign says, Mustang Money is a hot new game at Red Rock, located in front of the buffet. BELOW: Lucky local Kim draws a crowd and wins over $2,000 playing pennies on a Bier Haus Bonus at Sunset Station.

Red Rock added the new Sex and the City Fabulous slot games.

Fiesta Rancho just placed Epic Monopoly and Lord of the Rings (side by side).

eCraps at GVR.

Hot in Las Vegas Slots: ‘It’s Been a Balmy’ Winter 2012 Edition

Play Build-A-Wheel for prizes on our Facebook pages until Jan. 17.

LET’S START THE Hot in Slots Winter 2012 (the weather in Las Vegas has been quite balmy so far this year, by the way) blog post with a cool new thing we’ve been doing on our facebook page. First, because this is the Hot in Slots blog highlighting what’s new on our slot floors, we’ll start by announcing that throughout December 2011 we placed new Build-A-Wheel Video Poker machines in all our casinos. (Ask a slot attendant where the facebook game is :) )

Have you seen/played it yet?

If not, you’re in luck because it’s on all our facebook pages as we are holding daily slot tournaments (through January 17) where you can win prizes (and can’t lose really, by the way … it’s facebook) for playing Build-A-Wheel. You should check it out either in the casino or on facebook … here’s a link to links to all our facebook pages. After you like the facebook page, click the Build-A-Wheel tab in the left-hand margin, register and go for the high score!

Now for other new releases and general fun from our Las Vegas slot floors recently. Good Luck, by the way!

Got questions or comment for our slot managers? Let us know below!

At all 10 Station and Fiesta Casinos last week (above at Texas Station) debuted the Breakfast at Tiffany’s machine. As you can see we got in the spirit of things and many guests got a free pull.

During our Holiday Cash Giveaway at the end of December we gave away at least $100,000 (10 $1,000 winners at 10 casinos) for 10 straight nights. Some folks, like this Aliante Station winner, actually got $1,500 with the $500 “Be There” Bonus. Happy New Year!


Over at Fiestas, Rancho and Henderson, we are having January Play Days where there’s good stuff all month including dining discounts, Video Poker tournaments and gift days, but we like the $100,000 Cash Wheel spinning on Saturday nights … where it will land nobody knows …


Our slots guys take great pride in keeping the latest Video Reels on the floor, like below Boulder Station (left) and Texas Station …


These participation games get bigger and cooler like the Paradise Fishing at Green Valley Ranch.

Can’t forget Wildfires, as, along with great beer, Barley’s has the new Dark Knight.

See ya in the spring!
