Playing To Win

I have recently finished this piece called "Playing To Win". It features the face of a vintage pachinko machine. When I inherited the pachinko machine it was no longer functional, but I was in love with it's retro looking graphics, it's amazing detail and it's screaming colors. With the help of my magical brother in law this piece is wired so that each switch at the bottom of the piece lights up a different part of the pachinko board until you get to switch number five at which point the whole face of the board lights up and the piece emits a wild cheering sound due to a strategically placed sound chip.

The whole problem with gambling is that you are guaranteed to lose so often. Here is an art piece that guarantees a win every time you "play".
