RENO, Nev. (KRNV & -- Next time you hit the casino to play the slots, you might want to keep an eye out for a new machine.

"When I make the game, I have in mind 'Would I like that? Would I play this?'" Paulina Rodgers said.

Rodgers has been designing slot machines for more than a decade. 

"Most of our players are women, so I think it's really important that we have women developers," she said.

But Rodgers is one of just a few women who are leading their teams at Bally Technologies. 

Her newest game, Grease Pink Ladies, took more than a year to finish. 

"Slowly the whole thing comes together," Rodgers said.

Bally spokesman Mike Trask said they develop hundreds of games each year. 

"We'll produce about 25 thousand slot machine cabinets annually," he said.

Each has a distinct image, like Grease Pink Ladies. 

"You walk through a casino, there's thousands of games, there's bright lights so you need something that's going to stand out," Trask said.

Rodgers said they hit the jackpot with this game. 

"I love the look of it," she said. "I love how it plays."

When you sit down to play Grease Pink Ladies, you might actually feel like you're watching the movie. It features seven hit songs and 20 minutes of video clips. 

"The way we used the music, I think it's really well done," Rodgers said.

She said the best part of her job is seeing the final product in action. 

"Being able to go into a casino and see people play it, how cool is that?" Rodgers said. 

Grease Pink Ladies will hit casino floors in the next few weeks, and you'll be able to play it at GSR, Atlantis and likely more local casinos as they place their orders.
