Austin Powers, Man of Mystery Slots Making Waves at the Lake

18 May 2001

Debuting in Tahoe at Harrah's Lake Tahoe and their newest acquisition, Harveys Lake Tahoe, is the zany, fun-filled slot Austin Power, Man of Mystery. The slot is a basic 9-line, 1-5 nickels per line, "Aussie"-style slot .... but with more bonuses than any other game I have ever seen. Stopping to ask a local slot player that I recognized, who was completely engrossed in the game, what she thought, her reply was, "On a scale of one to ten, I give it a twelve or fifteen...." Players get all kinds of zany Austin Powers bonus choices, even some with Austin Powers movie clips.... My twenty-three-year-old son gives it equally high ratings.... and was seen leaning forward intently to watch the movie clips and laughing.... A hit with the young, the old, and the in-between.

Caesars Tahoe is bustling with activity.... all kinds of activity giving players the chance to win all kinds of neat vehicles in a variety of ways, and the chance continues to try daily for a million dollars by swiping your Emperor's Club card through a special machine and trying to match eight numbers.... And there is the paycheck drawing.... 15 people take home $50 to $1000 every week, by doing nothing more than cashing their paychecks and entering the drawing. And I have to give a great big award to Caesars Tahoe (and all Caesars casinos, for that matter....) for their "Virtual Tour" of Caesars Tahoe and Lake Tahoe.... if you go to you can check it out yourself... just click on Caesars Tahoe, and you can download a quick version of IPIX and see pictures of Lake Tahoe.... I had been touring other virtual tours, and one previous to this one that I had viewed had a complicated version of an Apple Computer program that took almost a half hour to download, and resulted in what I felt was a disappointing virtual view. NOT SO WITH CAESARS! I got a full-screen panoramic view that I could pan up, down, and sideways, and even included a shot of the sky with the tops of some tall pine trees.... down to the photographer's footprints in the snow! Now that is some kind of camera work. Thanks to the thoughtful folks who made that virtual tour possible.... And made it so that it is easy to view.... the download of the IPIX viewer took only a few minutes and automatically installed itself while I got a cup of coffee! I came back to my computer screen and "WOW" came out....

Harrah's Lake Tahoe has opened up all of their newest section.... a massive re-modeling job that has transformed the west end of the casino into the new Harrah's.... a must see... opulence, elegance, class.... new slots.... the only casino having THE PRICE IS RIGHT slots.... ah, heck... just come on up to Lake Tahoe. The weather is perfect, and slots are hotter than ever, with new games everywhere. GAMBLE TAHOE!
