Latest slot machines
The new location of the slot machines that were once inside the Riviera was revealed about an hour before the casino closed its doors on May 4th at noon. Not too many people saw or heard the news as it happened since it was revealed during a live video tour by part-owner of the Riviera, Derek Stevens, who was sharing with his followers through Periscope.
If youre the kind of dork that has to be up on the latest everything in technology like this writer you may have been one of the few hundred people watching and listening Stevens' last walk through the casino while it was open.
Periscope is a live video streaming app thats currently available to those who use Apple iOS mobile devices like an iPhone or iPad (Android versions are being worked on). The company that created Periscope was purchased by Twitter for approximately $100 million in March last year but the app wasnt released until earlier this year. The technology of live video streaming isnt entirely new but this new version of live streaming links directly with the operators twitter account and with their followers through the app on their mobile devices.

You may be more familiar with Derek Stevens as the owner of The D and Golden Gate in Downtown Vegas. Stevens announced on Periscope that he purchased all of the 852 Riviera owned slot machines and would be moving them to The D and Golden Gate. Newspapers reported this information a few days later.
But not every slot machine from the Riviera will be making an appearance on the casino floors. Casino operators dont own every slot machine that you see on the casino floor. Some slot machines are owned by the manufacturer and leased to the casino. Vendor-owned machines such as Wheel of Fortune and Megabucks were sent back to their owner, IGT. Some of the slot machines that were able to be purchased will be resold in a private auction.
