The Van Helsing slot machine photo taken at the Grand Casino in Biloxi, Mississippi.  It's all about the battle between Count Dracula and Herr Van Helsing.

 

VERSE 1

I was once like you

Just flying blind

For easy cash a glutton

 

But the fact is that

Old fortune wasn’t kind

Leaning on the ‘play all’ button

 

 

 

VERSE 2

Once I got a clue

Life didn’t suck

I set out on a mission

 

Showing you the way

To ‘get with’ Lady Luck

Winning’s easy with The System

 

 

VERSE 3

Even if you’re on

A winning streak

You best take time to listen

 

When your luck is gone

You’ll feel the need to freak

Shoulda learned to play The System

 

 

VERSE 4

In your heart you know

You’re up a creek.

And you should seek out wisdom.

 

For your game to grow

Yeah, you should take a peak

At the future, it’s The System.

 

 

BRIDGE

Select 1 by 1

To start the fun

Then 1 by 3

Then 5 by 1

 

Then 5 by 2

And if you didn't win,

It's time to step back down.

 

But if you won,

Then venture on.

Try 5 by 3

Then 9 by 2

And if you didn't win,

It's time to step back down.

The House of The Dead EX slot machine photo taken at the Grand Casino in Bixoli, MS.  It's the #1 slot machine about zombies and the undead, and has the most incredible audio soundtrack ever.

 

But if you won,

Then venture on.

Try 9 by 3

Then 15 by 2

And if you didn't win,

It's time to step back down.

And I mean all the way.

 

But if you won,

Then venture on.

Try 20 by 2

Then 15 by 3

And if you didn't win,

It's time to step back down.

 

But if you won,

Then venture on.

Try 20 by 3

Then 15 by 5

And if you didn't win,

It's time to step back down.

And I mean all the way.

 

But if you won,

Then venture on.

Try 20 by 5

And if you win,

Do NOT choose 20 by 10.

As it's luckier to hit

The Max Bet button.

 

VERSE 5

Now you’ve learned to bet

And playing smart

Your mojo sure has risen.

 

With the right mind set

The time is right to start

Winning jack pots with The System

Behold the Grand Casino and Resort Hotel in Biloxi, MS, which is now the Harrah's Gulf Coast Resort Hotel on beautiful Beach Boulevard.
