    Slot Machine Program - Where?

    Has anybody ever seen the newer style touchscreen slot machines at some of the casinos? Well even if you haven't, you can imagine what it would look like.... Click here: http://cigar.textamerica.com/?r=5266517

    THAT SLOT MACHINE IS RUNNING WINDOWS!!!

    First, I laugh Then I laugh some more because of the irony from crashing when you hit a jackpot on a Windows machine, then having it crash But then I think wait a minute, thats a touchscreen.....with slot machine software.....on a Windows machine....... >insert lightbulb<

    So, my question is: Is there any nice looking programs out there that can be used on a carputer touchscreen that looks similar to this? (personally, I think it would be just great to have the actual program that is run on these slot machines, so if anybody has that PLEASE post it)

    Thanks in advance for any information.....

    my brother in law actually does the animation for these machines. It is quite funny that some of the machines are windows based. It's rare that you see them come up with faults tho.

    unfortunately not the actual code due to the licencing laws, but my brother in law has a flash slot game that he made up for some fun. If you want it, I will see if I can find it.

    There's a few fruit machine emulators around which work a bit like mame...

    heres a link to one: http://www.fruit-emu.com/index.php

    heres a link to another plus an interesting article about how fruit machines cheat you.... http://www.fairplay-campaign.co.uk/fruit/fruit2.htm

    wish i could find an emu for more current machines tho, cos the old ones are boring in comparison. Must be to stop us practicing and getting an unfair advantage eh?

    hope this helps...

    Whats not funny is to see same message on cash machine that belongs to your bank institute. To my surprise, I have seen same neat "Invalid instruction at..." just a 3 weeks ago on one of them next to my office. To tell the truth it was valuable lesson to me as I d&#239;d not dare to try to widraw some money and to my surprice entire GUI behind the error message was working, I got my money and my card back. Valuable I say because money I withdraw was not taken from my account afterall.

    Whats even worse is to see BSOD messages all around plane entertaiment screens during your flight after "Ladies and gentleman we are experiencing technical issues with our communication system and we will be resetting our systems shortly" spoken announcement.
    Experienced two years ago on Cathay Pacific flight from HK to Frankfurt.
    I have not flew with Cathay Pacific again, but I relised that all others flight entertaiment system I have seen since then everywere were only based on some sort of Unix and X11 (you can see common dotted background and "X" mouse cursor during system start-up).
