&& Flynn here.
&& Seems you are on to me. My true identity exposed.
&& I was playing these Ainsworth machines from the other side of the
&& screen. The cabinet is nice. Ainsworth borrowed a page from old
&& arcade games and turned the monitor on its side (so it is taller than it is
&& wide). The images are crisp. This exposes my first issue with the
&& Ainsworth product. The graphics, sound and animation are below
&& average. The themes and play are promising, but there is a lack of
&& excitement around these games. A new 1-cent denomination machine
&& should be drawing a crowd. The machines were not really drawing much
&& attention at all.
&& The worst part? I inserted a $150 TITO into the machine and it spit it
&& back out. I tried to insert it a few times. Nothing. I decided to not
&& waste my time (again). I went to the cashier. The cashier said the
&& TITO was already cashed. I begged to differ. I had the slip in my hand.
&& How could the TITO be cashed if I held the slip. The manager looked up
&& the slip in the system. Sure enough, the Ainsworth machine cashed the
&& slip. The slot tech looked up the log of TITO slips cashed. Nothing!
&& The machine cashed the slip, but had no record of it. The casino paid me.
&& I am not in a big hurry to play these machines again.
&& Flynn out.
On the other side of the screen, it all looks so easy.
Yes, I know something about Tron. I used to work for the company that supplied the super computers.
I have an Ainsworth game I enjoy - it's a 50's themed machine called "Happy Hearts". I found it yesterday at Calder. I think I was playing 25 lines x 2 - 50 cents per spin. I got a free spin bonus and cashed out at $40 - I had $15 left from my $20 when I hit the bonus for $25. Nice game to play if my other favorites are not available.
I went to the page and saw several video previews of games I want to try.
I will look for Paradise Moon at Calder. I lile "Happy Hearts" but did not get a bonus on Apollo's Gold or Jungle Monkeys.
I've seen some of their games up at parx casino and they're also down at seminole coconut creek. Every time I play them, I do very well. They are very entertaining and some of the best paying slots out ther right now.
I've had fun and good luck on Ainsworth. Wish there was a web site out there were you could look over what games they offer in US.
Oh, God, Ainsworth. Traumatic memories there. The casino I work at used to have two banks of them. They were a pain in the butt to keep running, especially when they insisted on popping up error messages for no reason (I specifically remember one along the lines of "Call Attendant - Bill Acceptor Connected". If the bill acceptor is working, then why don't you just go into service?) Nobody really played them that often, and the tech department finally complained loud enough so they were replaced with WMSs and Ballys.
And it was so strange because Aristocrats are a joy to work on...!
