Chance and Circumstance columnist John Grochowski has published his second delightful book in an ongoing series of "answer books." Titled The Slot Machine Answer Book [Bonus Books], it is a worthy follow-up to Grochowski's previous best-seller The Casino Answer Book. In 10 tests with nearly 200 questions, Grochowski asks and answers all the major questions concerning slot machines that he has been asked by readers of his twice-weekly Chicago Sun-Times columns.

The book is a pleasure to read as Grochowski weaves many astute and witty observations and anecdotes into his answers to many of the most commonly-asked questions about slot machines. He discusses the RNG (the random number generator) that controls the symbols that will appear; he analyzes the difference between "reel" slots and "video" slots; he explains the origin of some of the reel symbols and explains why the concept of "overdue" machines is just a myth. The reader will be delighted to discover some odd facts concerning slot machines and slot play as well. If slots are your passion, you'll find The Slot Machine Answer Book a must-have, top-of-the-line resource for understanding what those infernal machines are all about. The Slot Machine Answer Book retails for $12.95 and is available from Paone Press, your favorite bookstores, or on the internet.
