Review Slot Machine
Like any true casino experience, it's nothing but a money pit

Lots of levels, simple controls
Is lagging, very common, bores you really quickly, low quality graphics, low quality animation
Slot Machine for Android offers a host of casino style games, all under one roof. The play is barely adequate, but there’s a lot of variety if you care to stick with it.
Slot Machine aims to be a little Vegas casino right inside your pocket. The app offers several games, not just slots, but slots is clearly the main focus. The games have an assortment of different themes and styles of play. However, just like real slots, it’s all pretty mindless and the winning combinations often don’t make any sense. The poker and bingo games were a nice touch, but offer little to salvage this mediocre app.
The controls are just basic screen taps. Just like real slots, you can bet max, bet min or auto spin; slots are barely a game as it is, so if you’re using auto spin, then what’s the point of playing at all? The graphics are solidly mediocre and look more like an old Atari, rather than a newfangled Android. Like any good slot machine, the real focus here is on spending money. They start you off with just enough coins to get a taste, and then you literally have to buy more coins to keep playing. No offense, but is anyone really that desperate? I mean, at least in Vegas there’s the promise of big winnings, but here, there ain’t no coins that are gonna come spitting out of your Droid if you “win big.”
Slot Machine is very true to my casino experience – it’s a total waste of money that’s sure to depress and anger everyone but the developers, who are hoping to run all the way to the bank. If you want to gamble in the comfort of your own Droid, there are far better slots apps to waste your time and money on.
