Japanese Bank Adds 'Slot Machine' To ATMs

Japanese people hoping their bank accounts carry a bit more cash could see their hopes come true with an ATM that doubles as a slot machine.

Ogaki Kyoritsu Bank, based in Ogaki city, will on August 8 introduce slot games that run during the wait as cash machines process transactions.

A user who hits three straight 7s using the "stop" button on the ATM screen will get 105 yen (about 90 cents) to cancel the customary fee for using the machine outside regular hours.

The bank customer can even strike a jackpot of 1,000 yen ($9) if the slot machine gives them a set of "gold" or "super gold" images, named after the accounts the bank has been offering. - Yahoo!
