by Mark Mayer | One of the newer slot machines out is Dean Martin, who probably would be flattered to know some of his hit songs reward players who cash.
Dean Martins Wild Party is one of the newer WMS machines and is capable of changing theme. Casinos can switch the screen on the top and adjust the software inside. The Martin slot follows the recurring manufacturer theme of songs and movies.
"The Martin slot is a way of bringing the older people back in the casino," said Brad Fredella, casino manager at the Wild Wild West. "Winning on this machine is just like any other. You just have to be there at the right time."
The WMS product has five different reels. Two of those have two spots, the other three contain four. It operates as a one, two and five cent machine.
On this model, you get 60 lines for just 30 credits. Most machines are 1-to-1, 60 credits for 60 lines. So with "Dino" theres one aspect favoring the player.
We confess to not being a winner the first time around, but play was done within a limited time frame. And with the machine being fairly new to the casino floor, expect to find it in major hallways and traffic areas where the most people tend to congregate.
Maybe you will hear "Everybody Loves Somebody Sometime." That would be a nice theme song for a winning slot.
