3.7 stars



Registered Phenomena Code: 777

Object Class: Alpha-Yellow

Hazard Types: Tychokinetic Hazard

Containment Protocols: RPC-777 is to be kept on-location at Site-███, below the basement of the ███████ Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada. Site-███ has been designed to act as a storage unit for anomalous objects, specifically luck-based events and objects, or any Alpha/Beta class objects that have been recovered close to the area.

RPC-777 must be kept in an airtight storage locker in Section 6 of the below-site storage unit. The storage locker where RPC-777 is located must be protected at all times by two armed ASF members, with instructions to bar entry into the area. Only Clearance Level 3 or above research personnel are permitted access to RPC-777 only during approved testing periods, along with any CSD personnel assigned for testing.

Description: RPC-777 appears to be a standard-size slot machine. The machine appears much like typical slot machines, and is equipped with a large screen displaying three reels, a lever, a coin slot, and three buttons placed at the foot of the screen. The machine also features aspects designed to attract potential players, such as bright flashing lights, sounds and decorations on the front of the machine. Above the screen, there is a flashing board decorated with a cartoon man in a top hat and tuxedo. The phrases “Super Slots!” and “Win BIG!” are embossed at the top of the board, along with the brand name “Lucky Louie’s Casino Customs” (a search of casino supply manufacturers has so far shown no company or brand with this title or mascot existing). Despite possessing a power cord, RPC-777 does not appear to require any sort of electricity in order to function.

RPC-777’s anomalous properties manifest when a coin of any value is placed into the coin slot of the machine and the lever is pulled1 The reels of the machine will begin spinning, and will stop when the corresponding button on the interface is pressed by a human hand. Once all three reels have been stopped, RPC-777 will display the results before deactivating. Once RPC-777 deactivates, it is rendered unusable for one hour, during which any attempts to activate it will yield no results.

Following the machine’s deactivation, any individual human who pressed one of the buttons will begin to experience abnormal shifts in luck depending on the results of the reels. Although in most cases the reels of RPC-777 do not match (thus resulting in no anomalous effects), changes in the subject's fortune have been noted when all reels on RPC-777 match. Tests performed by the researchers assigned to RPC-777 have found that on average what would normally be considered favorable results on a typical slot machine tend to grant the user more favorable luck as a result. These changes in luck typically last one week or until the subject’s death.
