Casino Slot Machines, Hard Rock Atlantic City Logo
Hard Rock Hotels & Casino Atlantic City unveiled their revolutionary live online slots at a news conference on Monday. The slots are the first of their kind and feature ground-breaking innovations in technology. Hard Rock has partnered with Softweave Ltd., an internet gaming company based out of Israel, to develop the unique software that gives players the ability to play live slots from a connected device.

“We are thrilled to present ground-breaking and innovative technology as real-money, online gaming continues to evolve in New Jersey,” said Joe Lupo, president of Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Atlantic City.

“Similarly to live table games dealers, live slots enables our players to have one seamless experience to earn Wild Card rewards including hotel rooms, entertainment and dining at Hard Rock Atlantic City. Bridging the gap to provide a ‘live’ experience to our online consumers is something we are not only excited for, but very proud to be the first in the world.”

Live Online Slot Room

The selling point behind these live online slots, which makes them completely different than any other slot machine out on the market currently, is that they’re only activated and played on by online gamblers.

Casino guests have the ability to peek in on the action and see how the online players are doing, through the live slot room’s key-shaped windows. The room includes 12 machines featuring the popular games: Buffalo, Leprocoins, Hotter Than Blaze, SpitFire Mulipliers, and 34x4x4x Double Times Pay.

The room has a set of cameras that allow the virtual players to actually what’s happening in the room as they activate play from their off-site devices. Similar to traditional casino slot machines, there’s only one player allowed to play at a slot at any given time.

“The psychology, there are brick-and-mortar players that have a fear of doing things online,” said Kresimir Spajic, senior vice president of online gaming at Hard Rock International. “This is helpful in transitioning them into online customers. This is a real, physical machine that they can see, almost like they’re sitting in front of it.”

Lupo said that the innovative new slot technology was a “natural outgrowth of live-dealer tables games that have been growing in popularity in Atlantic City over the past six years.”

“Credibility and transparency have been paramount to seeing online gaming move forward,” Lupo said. “The difference between seeing a computer image as opposed to the kind of machine that a customer has been playing for years, it may be easier to understand.”

Hard Rock’s new live online slot room is located on the second floor of the casino, directly across from Fresh Harvest Buffet.

How To Play

Players can access the new live slots with a valid internet gambling account. They can make easily set up an account through Hard Rock’s online casino website. If all 12 machines are in use, players can wait in a queue until a slot is available. Lupo suggested that during the downtime, players can entertain themselves with the wide variety of online slots and table games available at Hard Rock’s online casino. Sounds like a win-win situation.

Fuller called the win “life changing” and planned to put his winnings into the bank until he could figure out exactly what to do with it. One thing is for sure, this is a win he’ll never forget.

Odds of Winning at Slot Machines

All slot machines are equipped with random number generators, constructed in a way that gives the casino an edge. So how does a player beat those odds? The answer is to look for a “loose” slot machine.

Many slot machines are put together in a way where players can get many little wins but no big ones. Other machines are manufactured to offer big wins but no little ones. Players should learn the subtle and not so subtle differences between the two types of machines.

It’s also a good idea to get to know the pay table. How much and how frequently a slot machine pays out will be subject to the variance of the slot machine. Starting small means keeps you in your own comfort zones without losing money unnecessarily. When you become more comfortable with the method of payment you then increase your bet. Practice combined with patience will take you a long way.

Slot Machine Strategy

A successful slot machine strategy should begin before you ever start to play. Ask yourself what your goal is at the casino. Are you playing to have fun or to win as much as you can? Prioritizing your game time will determine the focus of your slot machine strategy.

Next, decide how much money you’re willing to spend and can afford to lose when playing. Once you decide how much you are willing to lose, it helps you to figure out how long you plan to stay at the casino. This also helps you decide which slot machine to choose.

Slot machines come in different denominations like the penny slots Lawrence Fuller won his $880,000 on. Dollar slots have bigger payouts, but also include more risk. Don’t forget to bet the max amount per spin!

It’s also a good idea to avoid progressive slots as they have life-changing prizes but terrible odds. Instead, look for machines with moderate jackpots and mid-value prizes. You can find this out by reading each machine’s pay table to determine their payouts.

Remember, if your goal is fun, the more intricate video slots might be your best option. If your goal is to spend a long time at the casino, you’ll want to concentrate on lower-cost machines like penny slots. Just like Lawrence Fuller, you never know how your play at a penny slot might turn out!
