I was heading out for one of my occasional gambling binges this holiday weekend, when what did I see? It looks like online auction house eBay has gotten their very own slot machines.
By the time I managed to stumble my way over from the buffet line, the eBay slots were so busy that I didn’t even manage to donate my money to them.
From what I could tell, they’re those typical nickel slots with tons of perplexing jagged lines which must match up in order to pay the big bucks. Of course, unlike the real eBay, there’s no guarantee that the highest bidder will win anything.
The machines have icons for popular auction categories such as electronics, motors, collectibles and fashion, but they only take (and occasionally dole out) cold hard cash. And while there won’t be any money showing up in your PayPal account, all of the players on the system can win a free spin at the same time, so I guess that’s better than nothing.
Wanna play the eBay slot machines in person? Head on over to the oh-so-addictive new Four Winds Casino in New Buffalo, MI (just over an hour East of Chicago).
