I still cannot see the fascination in playing a game which normally has money pouring out of a machine's mouth on a machine which has no mouth at all! Don't get me wrong, I like feeding the unidextrous thieves, but only if there is that chance of the big win. I really can't see any pleasure otherwise.

As you may have guessed, this is a fruit machine program and a very good one, with random holds, nudges, collect or gamble winnings and even a special Bandit feature offering even more mythical money to win. You start with 50p and it "costs" 10p a go. There is nothing to criticise - plenty of colour, good graphics and sound. But you don't actually win or lose money and, in keeping with this, you can get another 50p any time! The best feature is undoubtedly price and if you want this kind of program you won't beat this value. It really is as good as others I have reviewed at twice the price.

Wait a moment. I've thought of a use at last! It's for gamblers who want to stop losing money but keep the habit. Eureka!
