Who said Popeye was outdated?

The legendary Sailor Man has had his option renewed in Atlantic City with the announcement that Bally Gaming Inc. will install up to 100 slot machines in eight casinos.

The games will hit the floors of Resorts Atlantic City and the Sands Hotel & Casino in November. The 5-cent slots include depictions of the muscle-bound good guy beating up Brutus and rescuing Olive Oyl from his clutches.

The New Jersey Casino Control Board voted 5-0 to allow state casinos to offer the game.
