   Overview

As in the normal Dichotomy QGame, in the Slot Machine Dichotomy, the player reviews individual items and places them in one of two mutually exclusive or contradictory categories. A common example of this game uses the two categories True and False.

In addition, there is an element of chance in this game. The player begins to play by pulling the handle. The slot spins until the player answers a question. The chances of getting 3 in a row are increased with each correctly answered question.
