The Casino Answer Man

1 July 1999

My wife and I are frequent visitors to a casino that recently added IGT Vision Series slots. Enclosed is their advertisement. Note the machine on the front of the postcard, which was mailed to us and many of our friends. It shows a 25-cent Vision game.

Upon my third visit this week, I cannot find a 25-cent Vision slot in this casino. They're all $1 slots that take up to three tokens at a time.

The front of the postcard that you forwarded to me shows a Racing 7s machine, and it does show a 25-cent denomination on the glass. That does make it unfortunate that the casino in question currently offers the game only in the $1 denomination.

However, the casino seems to be guilty of nothing more than a lack of attention to detail. The photograph on the postcard is straight out of manufacturer IGT's promotional package for the Vision series. The photograph IGT sends to operators is of a quarter machine. Unless the operator notices and takes the trouble to mask out the denomination, the quarter denomination will show up in casino advertising.
