1961 episode of ROUTE 66 entitled "ELEVEN THE HARD WAY" was filmed at the MAPES HOTEL in Reno.
Shown in the episode are Mills chrome diamond fronts, a Pace 49'er, roulette & crap tables.
The show feature lots of heavy action at the crap table.
One of the best episodes!

1951 Slot machine movie:
"STREET BANDITS".
Plenty of slots, and crooked operators blowing up bars & clubs that don't "follow the rules".
Also some good scenes in the operators work shop showing them "fixing" machines.
A great movie for slot collectors.

Just curious: can anyone here identify the snazzy-looking antique slot which the manipulative publisher character toys with in the opening minutes of "Croupier" (presently streaming on Netflix)? I'm guessing that any of our friends from across the pond could answer in half a millisecond, but I haven't got a clue...

I just did some more searching: it's a Tura machine, right?

You are right! It's a Tura slot machine made around 1935 in Germany.
37 slots machines.... May be more ?

The Best Offer (2013), a movie "recently added" for streaming on NetFlix, includes a scene in which an antique restoration/repair expert (tinker?) character is welding on what appears to be a counter-wheel mechanism. Can anyone identify the make and model from these images?
