    A Fruit (Slot!) Machine doesn't need graphics, you can do it all with text. I have a version that runs on a 3270 session on a mainframe (poor old *green screen stuff* with text only interface).

    Observe:
    Code:
    RANDOM HOLD AFTER WIN                                 AVERAGE 76  PAYOUT  
                                                      
                                                                              
       ***************    ***************    ***************                  
       *             *    *             *    *             *                  
       *   -BAR-     *    *   LEMON     *    *   -BAR-     *                  
       *             *    *             *    *             *                  
       ***************    ***************    ***************                  
                                                                              
       HIT ENTER TO GO AGAIN OR CLEAR TO STOP

    When all else fails, read the instructions.

    of course, normal slot machines are there to make the casinos rich, so they wouldn't hand out 10 pounds for 20 pense(?)
