The Pimped slot machine has been a casino favorite since its inception, and it is a common sight on many casino floors around the world. This is no surprise though as the name Pimped was taken from the original design of the wheel used on the machine. The wheel on a Pimped slot machine is similar to that of a horse in that it can rotate over three axes. Each axis is variable, which means that each time the wheel spins it will have a different outcome. Some casino goers like this, as it gives them the feeling that they are playing against a computer program that is trying to find the best set of odds.
If you want to know more about the history of the pimped wheel and how it came to be you may like to read the story line from left to right. The first thing that you will see about the Pimped machine is that of the multi-layered musical score. There are soaring bass lines, slow MIDI songs, frantic synthesizer noises and the ever enthusiastic cheers and chatter of an excited crowd just in the background. This is definitely well designed, moving quieter in between rotations and coming alive as you begin to spin the wheel.
If the name did not clue you in then you should know that this type of machine does not have the normal slots or video games you are used to. Instead, it pays with its circular “H” shaped icon that spins around the reels. When you get to the third spin the icon changes to a “P” and then back to the H symbol. It is important to remember that the “P” pays the wild card while the “H” pays the house and is therefore a wild card icon on any two cards put together.
