Cant remember its name, but if you walk into the casino from the main entrance and then take about 12 steps in, turn left, walk past that row of machines for three paces, go around that line to the right, take another 5 paces and it is on your right hand side.

It has flashing lights and was really lucky for us, hope it is the same for you

I sail HAL, and on the Vista ships [including Osterdam] I have seen the Wheel of Fortune games -- the $1 version.

There are a number of video terminals that are nickel slots. I have my best luck there. My husband, who usually is at the blackjack or roulette tables, tried a nickel machine and hit for almost $400.

You should be careful while spending money on casino slot machines. You can play for fun, but surely dont get too involved in it

I think the dollar Wheel of Fortune machines are the most consistant among all the ships. However, I was on the Dawn Princess, playing a nickle machine for the first time and won 4000.00. It was a Diamond Ring theme. I really cannot remember the name of it. Also there was an I Dream of Jeannie machine that also paid well...especially after midnight!
Good luck. I never seem to do too well the first couple of nights.

The main problem with slots is not knowing what the house percentage is. The house take is a known quantity on table games, but is a complete mystery with slots.
