From video: "Like Roulette, this version of Slots seems to be pretty much complete."

    Well, it still needed lights that produced an impressive show when you hit a jackpot and the indicator for the progressive jackpot really belongs at the top. Also maybe some low-volume sounds that reflected the excitement going on in other parts of the casino.

From video: "Once you set the wheel spinning, like Roulette, you were at the mercy of the casino gods. Wheels stop at random, and there was no ability to halt them early."

    In an attempt to make things more interesting, Brooks and Bright would later add a handle the player could tease with the action keys and that did affect the spin. The handle graphic was carried over to the TVPowww! version, although it wasn't teaseable there. The lights at the top of the machine and the background sound effects were removed, though.

From video: "There is always an empty slot on wheel three. This is because the wheel symbols are implements as MOBs and you run into the limits of eight sprites."

    It was planned to implement the ninth symbol by sequencing background. Slots was removed from Roulette before that happened.

    Sometimes contact with reality works in your favor: the lack of a ninth symbol is surprisingly tolerable. It was not fixed for Kempner.

Is there a picture of the TVPowww! Version anywhere?
