Slot machines with a Chinese theme are numerous in the Year of the Dragon

Chinese New Year began on Jan. 23 and ends on Feb. 9. After the Super Bowl, it is the second biggest annual event in Las Vegas. To celebrate the coming of the Year of the Dragon, here are five slot machines that have the mythical creature in the name or design. Slot machine manufacturers are well aware that many Chinese-Americans are big slot players, so it is good business to use designs that appeal to them.

Here in Las Vegas, Chinese New Year is a big deal. Hotels promote special New Year events and menus, and there is considerable national and international advertising to attract Chinese visitors, foreign and domestic.

Vegas even has it own Chinatown with a bevy of fine restaurants, Asian supermarkets and specialty shops. It is a short trip from the Las Vegas Strip (Las Vegas Blvd.).
