During the year I lived in Las Vegas, I wrote down all the data related to my slot machine use–game, casino, date, time, the money I inserted and the money I won on each pull. I then analyzed this data from a number of angles, such as “most popular casino,” “least played game,” “winningest hour of the day,” “average money bet per month,” and so on. The original data pool was then placed in the binder shown above, and each piece of the analysis of the data was placed in a separate fortune cookie. These fortune cookies, with their informational prize, were given away for free to the public, starting at the opening reception of the show. The cookies were very popular and necessitated multiple “editions.”
The original data pool can be found here.
