The slots are an integral part of Las Vegas culture. Slot machines are one of the distinct sounds and sights many recognize just as they depart the airplane. Players around the world compete in many tournaments and races while playing their favorite slot machines.
At The Plaza Hotel & Casino, players will have the chance to compete over three days by racing to earn the highest points on their favorite slot machines.
History of Slot Machines
Slot machines have a big history in Las Vegas. This is the place where the first fully electromechanical and video slot machines were made. Although the precursor machines were first invented in 1891 in New York, those slot machines happen to be based on the classic game of poker. Even one of the early slot machines dispensed different flavors of chewing gum, which is why some of the popular cherry and melon symbols remain part of some slots today.
Nowadays slot machines that you see on every Las Vegas casino floor have fun and unusual themes that range from TV shows to musical and pop icons.
Slot Machine Contest Downtown
The Race for the Case takes one Las Vegas’s staples and takes it to a whole new level. Players will compete head-to-head on their slot machines and try to get the highest points. There is no buy-in for the race and the first prize winner will receive a handsome reward of $15,000. Play your slot machine and race to become one of the top five players with the highest points.
The top five will then get to choose from five briefcases. Each briefcase contains a different amount of money, which ranges from $1,000 to $15,000. The player with the highest slots points will be the first person to choose a briefcase. Winners will only have a minute to choose and are not allowed to switch once they have picked a briefcase, which means that the first place slot winner will not necessarily take home the most money.
