Turning ATMs Into Slot Machines
from the one-armed-bandits dept
Apparently, people aren’t as interested in using ATMs in Japan, in part because Japanese banks charge a fee for using the machines. Of course, a simple solution to this would be to remove the fee, but apparently that’s way too easy. Instead, the banks are experimenting with a plan to turn some ATMs into slot machines. Every time you do a transaction, you also get a typical slot machine display. If you “win” you can get a free transaction or even a bit of cash back (about $9).
