The Slot Detective Replaces Cherries with Mug Shots

Slot Detective works like your average slot machine, but with one very big difference. Instead of cherries, bells or the like, Slot Detective features mug shots of wanted fugitives. It is also free.

The manufacturer, Famista Inc, says they developed the innovative slot machines hoping that they would help catch Japan’s most wanted suspects. You’d think they’d be glad to get the help, but the police have called the game inappropriate, saying that the slot machines could potentially upset victims of the crimes.

When a player hits the jackpot, they get details of the suspect and their crimes, how to give tips to police and the amount of any reward offered for their capture. Stats for Gambling to Fight Crime Trending: Older & Chilly
