Suddenly, Glenn Soucak found himself watching a NASCAR race at Daytona International Speedway. His favorite racer, Dale Earnhardt Jr., was flying around the track at breakneck speed, weaving in and out of the streams, striving for the lead.

In truth, Soucak wasn’t near Daytona International Speedway on Friday. He was at the Golden Nugget in Atlantic City.

The races unfolded on the slot machine, which is one of the latest technologies in the casino industry. Golden Nugget is the first casino in Atlantic City to offer “virtual racing” on an interactive slot machine that puts players right in the middle of the action.
These days slot machines are equipped with sophisticated computer software, touch screen technology, vibrant graphics, video streaming and high quality sound systems. In addition to the excitement, there are bonus features and betting options that allow players to win big jackpots. This continues the evolution of slot machines from crude machines driven by mechanical reels to multimedia marvels that help casinos keep up with the demands of a fickle gambling public.
The NASCAR-themed slot machine developed by Bally Technologies Inc. allows players to choose their favorite driver and cheer them on at the finish line. The elaborate animation gives the impression that players are watching a real race in real time. Adding to the realism is the racing sound made by famed NASCAR announcer and host of NASCAR Live, Eli Gold.
“It’s like nothing else,” Bally Technologies spokesman Mike Trask said of the NASCAR slots. “Every person behind every slot machine experiences the same thing. It adds a thrill that is unparalleled in the casino world.”

Virtual racing can take place on every slot machine in the Golden Nugget, even if it’s not a new NASCAR-themed game. The race is displayed in a small window that opens in the lower right part of the slot machine screen. Thus, the race can be run without interrupting the operation of the rest of the gaming machine.
A message flashes on the slot machine to let players know if they are eligible to play. The race simulation takes about five minutes.
“There is a possibility of accidents. Photo finish possible. It really motivates people,” Trask said. “This is another way to lure them into the casino.
Virtual racing Golden Nugget is, in fact, a game within a game. Players can choose from one of eight famous NASCAR drivers. If their driver wins, $50 in the free slot machine is loaded onto their loyalty card. They get $20 in a free slot game if their driver finishes second and $10 for third place.

Tom Polman, general manager of Golden Nugget, described this type of interactive game as the wave of the future in slot machine technology. He also believes this gives the Golden Nugget a competitive advantage over other casinos in the city.
The benefit is twofold: players get more fun playing slot machines, and Golden Nugget gets more profit, Polman explained.
“This allows us to create more excitement in the casino floor while you are here. And hopefully this will give us the opportunity to increase the amount of time you play,” he said.
The Golden Nugget is hosting a NASCAR virtual race promotion at 2:00 PM, 5:00 PM, 8:00 PM. and 23:00 on Fridays. Qualified players who choose the winners will share a $50,000 guaranteed prize pool in slot machines. There is a similar Golden Nugget promotion that features virtual slot machine races.

The main components of the machine will be familiar to Stern’s NASCAR Pinball players as both machines share similar components and gameplay.
