1 vs. 100 Slot Machine

I was in Vegas last weekend and am always surprised to see so many TV-themed slot machines. "Wheel of Fortune" is still the big draw, of course. The big wheel was raucous — even at 1:30PM in the afternoon at Planet Hollywood.

If you like these TV slots, then you'll love this news. Endemol filed a trademark application on June 6, 2007 to protect 1 vs. 100 for "Amusement machines and slot machines, automatic and coin-operated."

I don't know how they'll adapt the show into a slot, but it could be interesting if it becomes a massive multiplayer game. Imagine simultaneously playing against the house and everybody else on each pull of the lever. You win the normal cash against the house, but you accumulate points — casino points for prizes or machine points to play a bonus game — based on how many other gamblers you beat.
