You've seen all sorts of commercials about Dick the Detective. He's a classic figure who wears a trench coat, holds a pocket knife, and answers to no one. You might remember him from the 'Nursery Chicks' game, or the 'Old Spice' game that featured him as an operator. But he's most well known for his appearance on the Blue Man Group's web site. The web site's slogan is 'If it's Not What It Seems, It's Not What You're Looking' and this is perhaps the world's most famous version of a slogan. For whatever reason, Dick is more famous than he ever wanted to be. He's the star of T.V. shows, he's the butt of many jokes, and he is the standard in detective activity for many people - and for a long time, he was T.V. 's answer to the elusive and often-mythical 'million dollar slot machine.' There was nothing that could top Dick's ability to win, and when the T.V. show finally ended, there was nothing left to replace it. Now, I don't know if you played the T.V. show, but I'm assuming that you didn't. If you did, I'm guessing that you remember one of the episodes in which Dick was confronted by an intruder who wouldn't take a chance on walking into a trap or a no-brainer lie - and so he decided to play a slot machine. After winning a huge jackpot, Dick changed his mind, took off his shirt, grabbed his pants, and walked out the front door of the casino carrying what looked like the baguettes that you get at Domino's. And then, for the rest of his life, he would play the same machine - over again. And why shouldn't he? There's a reason that the old slogan used to say that 'you win, or you lose' is true with slot machines. Playing the machine requires some degree of luck, and like in real life, the likelihood of hitting the jackpot - no matter how many times you play - is still slim. So, if you're still playing, why not cash in on your experience? Of course, if you want to play on purpose, I wouldn't advise it. The first thing you have to realize is that a game of luck - any game - is always better than a game of skill. That said, however, that doesn't mean that you can't play the machine for fun. There are a lot of slot machines out there that have small odds, and if you know how to play them, they can still be a lot of fun to play. First off, try playing the machine in a quiet place, away from other players and loud noises. Second, watch where you're going - be careful of people and obstacles, and look around periodically to make sure there aren't any cameras or slot-enhancing items in your way. If you see anything that looks suspicious, stop and investigate. Don't feel guilty about it - you are only trying to find the truth and don't want anyone to get hurt in the process. Also, if you suspect that there is something blocking the view of the machine, like someone lying in front of it, keep looking. A few tips while you play the Dick the Detective T2 slot machine: watch out for people who are cheating. When you see one of these people running across the playing field, get into their path to quickly get out of the way. Don't worry about getting hit with a flying ball - you'll be fine. The only thing you should worry about in this game is falling off the slot machine. Keep your balance and don't go crashing into the crowd of people in front of you. One last tip: don't play when you are feeling stressed. Stress is your worst enemy on the casino floor - trust in your skills and play according to what your mind tells you is best. Don't worry about how many people are winning - concentrate on how many people are losing. That is the only way you will have fun on the machine. When you do win, be sure to snap a photo of the lucky red money on the screen - that way you can show your friends!
