Even during a short escape to Atlantic City I somehow manage to Trek-out! We recently spent a night at the Trump Plaza Hotel & Casino in Fabulous Atlantic City and had a great time. We played the slots, had an nice walk in the boardwalk, and even enjoyed a “free” buffet. Our room had a cool ocean view too. It was a great get-a-way. But the highlight of the trip for me was playing a Star Trek slot machine!
These Trek themed gambling machines were first released in 2008 by the WMS company. I actually got a chance to play one in a recent visit to Las Vegas. It’s loads of fun! The machine is based on the original series and incorporates sound effects, audio and video clips from the show. You can even create a profile and then print a ticket to scan at the next Star Trek slot machine you come upon and it will remember you and let you pick up where you left off. There are bonus rounds where you get to fight on multiple Klingon battle cruisers (each one you defeat has a different bonus $ amount. It’s a penny slot machine so you can actually play for a while on just $20. According to Trek Movie the company is releasing a new Star Trek slot machine system this summer.
I’m sure you want to know how I did. Well.. let’s just say it was a kobayashi maru kind of situation. But still- I had fun. 🙂
I did a little Youtube search and found this video. It gives you an idea of what the slot play looks like.
