In pictures: Deliveroo unveils slot machine for hungry commuters

Commuters at Waterloo Station this morning (10 May) were given a nostalgic games arcade treat from food delivery service Deliveroo.


A two-metre high giant slot game - the ‘RooMachine’ was installed at the station. Inspired by the experience of using a classic slot machine - including the thrill of winning - the RooMachine offers players the chance to pull the lever and spin the bespoke rollers to win.

The game includes a fun foodie twist, with commuters playing for samples from some of Deliveroo’s most popular restaurant partners including Hummingbird Bakery, Yo! Sushi, Press, Crosstown and Farmstand. Players also had the chance to win some jackpot surprises.

Deliveroo spokesperson, Dan Warne said: "Whether it’s breakfast, lunch or dinner, deciding what to eat is always difficult - especially if you’re at work all day and don’t have the time to think about shopping, let alone prepare something yourself. We hope The RooMachine will get people excited about meal times and the great choice we have on Deliveroo."

The machine took nearly 400 hours to design and prefabricate and includes bespoke mechanical components that utilise race grade bicycle gears and industrial print machinery cogs and chains. it will be touring the country over the summer. 

In March this year Brewdog teamed up with Deliveroo to bring beer to Londoners' doors.
