Coin Cup Slot Machines Return At Resorts Atlantic City Casino
Atlantic City casinos have been put in the situation where they have to try anything to bring customers back. The casinos have had a sharp drop off in revenue since the recession has begun, and things have not improved lately.
The tough economic climate has led the casinos to try some off the wall promotions. One of those promotions is coming from Resorts Atlantic City, where the casino is trying to conjure up memories of the old days.
Back in the heyday of Atlantic City casino gambling, coin machines were the rage. People would actually have to walk around with over sized cups to place their winnings in. The money would flow from the bottom of the machines when a player won.
Resorts has brought back the machines. Eight of them have been installed and the players have been raving about the old-fashioned machines.
"The sound of the coins clanking on the metal is something that I have missed with these new versions of slot machines," said gambler Jackie Fromson, "It is nice to play the old machines once again."
Resorts has said that they will continue to monitor how the eight machines are being received. If the demand is there, the casino has left the door open to installing more of the machines.
The machines are not the only area where the casino is profiting from throwing back to the seventies. They also run "Boogie Nights", a popular nightclub that plays seventies disco music.
