  1. Tim, the pinball doc is called “special when lit” and its still avail on netflix. Recommended.

  2. Because everything has a Las Vegas connection. (At least in my mind) One of the World’s biggest supporters of the Olympic sport of Dressage is E. Parry Thomas, father of Wynn super designer Roger Thamas and, more importantly, THE post-war banker and money man in Las Vegas. There would be no Las Vegas or Steve Wynn as we know it without his efforts. The horse statue located at the Wynn valet entrance is a tribute to his Dressage horse Brentina. Designed and cast by artist Stephan Weiss, late husband of fashion designer Donna Karan

  3. I followed Tim’s lead and played the new Michael Jackson slot at Seminole Hollywood Hard Rock. Bally has a real winner with this. Graphics, sound and chairs are better than any experience from IGT or even WMS. I put in $20 and played max of $3.20 so I could win the progressive (which I didn’t). Second spin, got the bonus which gave me free games. When “Beat It” started, I thought someone was behind me, picking my pocket, but it was the music and vibration from the chair. That bonus paid me $180. Three spins later, got it again for $220. I figured that was a good enough return on my $20, so I left. All due to Tim’s review. Thanks!

  4. Not shocked about Seablue.

    That place was never close to being full the times I was there.

  5. My take on the MJ slot was based on the beta version that sat at TI for a few weeks or so. It wasn’t the full set up, which certainly effected BR. But I think IGT has put out bigger impact slots, nobody likes the American Idol slots much, but that’s a big production. MJ doesn’t feel like its livin that large. I will take the full version for a spin. Just go in with an open mind and let the magic and the music get to me, etc. I was expecting masive BR from this slot with groundbreaking effects…something over the top.

  6. Just listened to show… completely agree with Tim’s rant…. PJ Clarkes completely SUCKS! Same service issues, my wife and I walked out before the food even arrived.
