Good product, but does not include Tailgate Party
Reviewed in the United States on May 13, 2010
Before I get to my review, I want to point out that the version of the product I received from my May 8, 2010 order is slightly different than what is described on this page as of May 13, 2010.
First, I love Tailgate Party and one of the big reasons I chose to buy this was because the description indicated that Tailgate Party was included. Unfortunately, the version that arrived does not include that slot game so, beware, if that's a deal breaker for you.
Second, while the description says it is only compatible with Windows up through Vista, the version of the game that arrived is marked on the box as being compatible with Windows 7 as well. I have installed it on our Win 7 PC and it works fine (after I downloaded a patch... see below).
Now to my review of the product that arrived. It loaded fine, but when I first tried to run it, it locked up a few times. I checked the readme file on the disk and it said to check for updates on [...]. There was an update on that page so I downloaded it and the game runs fine now.
These truly are the same slot games you can find in casinos. Rich colors and sounds. If you like them in a casino, you'll like them here. The risk of losing money is removed which can make it more fun than a casino. However, the hope of winning money is also removed which may lessen the fun for some people. Personally, I still find the bonus-type games (eg Texas Tea, Latino Machino) to be fun, but am pretty bored by the traditional machines (eg Triple Diamond) when there's no chance of winning real cash.
Here is a full list of the slot machines included in the version I received:
Benny Big Game
Five Times Pay
Little Green Men Family Reunion
Lucky Lion Fish
The Great Turkey Shoot
Red White & Blue
Spin Til You Win
Ten Times Pay
