Japan's Ogaki Kyoritsu BanK adds slot machine games to ATMs

Japan's Ogaki Kyoritsu Bank is introducing slot machine-style games to its ATMs which will give customers the chance to win back bank fees or around $10 in cash.

The fruit machine-style games will run as customers wait for the cash machines to process transactions. Customers can play the games by hitting a stop button on the ATM screen.

Cardholders that hit a triple seven will have their after hours ATM fee - Y105 (around $1) refunded. If a set of 'gold' or 'super gold' pictures line up on the slot game, the customer wins Y1000 (nine dollars) which can be collected from a branch counter at a later date.

The chance of getting three sevens is about one in 10, while customers have a one-in-500 chance of winning the cash prize.

The bank says the games will not be available during regular business hours when cash withdrawal from ATMs is free of charge.

Ogaki Kyoritsu told newswire reporters the games will enable customers to enjoy "a little excitement" while waiting for an ATM to process transactions.

Cardholders from other banks will also be able to play the ATM games but will be charged a fee of Y210 (around $2).
