IGT Introduces New Technology with TMZ Slot

IGT Introduces New Technology with TMZ Slot According to delegates for the G2E expo and conference in Las Vegas have reported on the significance of IGT's new TMZ slot.

Based on American TV shows, "TMZ" and "TMZ Live", both hosted by attorney and television presenter Harvey Levin, the game introduces a new innovation in which an image of the player is captured and transfers it into the game theme in a unique way.

IGT teamed up with Warner Brothers on the theme and imaging concept which offers "...camera-based, photo booth technology that integrates a player's image on the game screen and in several engaging bonus rounds" and "...original voiceover work, photography and creative input" from Levin.

TMZ Slot has not even been released yet but it attracting quite a bit of attention as Levin promotes it on his shows.
  • This is a land based slot an if someone thinks that having their face in it while they're playing it is going to make it more exciting, then go for it. I just wonder if it's gonna be as big as they think it's gonna be. Not everybody is going to like it. If I would hit the jackpot on that game, the last thing I'd want is for someone to be able to recognize me on the street by the picture they saw on a slot machine. They'd probably try to rob me. We live in a crazy world sometimes and there are a lot of crazys out there. If I end up at a land casino, don't think your gonna find me at that slot...........
  • if the technology can let player to win, its fine for me.
  • New technology is always welcome. New ideas must find their way to success. The same applies for appliances that need to always provide something new to its customers. Otherwise all eventually became bored. Great idea!
  • Yikes--that would definitely encourage me to fluff up my appearance before going out to the casino. It is also presumable that "the machine" keeps a running inventory of 'winners' which technically could be tracked, such as looking at the player's promo-points card, so that's not exactly extortion-proof. Hmm. Thumbs down, in my opinion---it isn't worth it.
  • This sounds super fun! TMZ is always entertaining... I love that they take a photo of the player! Most people look their best in the casino so it should be a hit! I will just have to avoid this game when I sneak downstairs in the middle of the night... ;)
