How many slot machines are in your collection?

I thought it might be interesting to do a simple poll to see how many machines people own. If you respond to the poll, your answer will NOT be displayed with your id.

I define a slot machine as a machine that pays out coins or tokens when you win something. Therefore, a CheckBoy or Mills Pilot would be considered a slot machine.

I will run another poll for trade stimulators.

Slot machines

I only have a Mills QT Chevron at the moment but I dream of one day owning a machine in a console that dispenses golf balls.

My collection can vary from 10 or 12 down to 1 or 2, depending on my buying and selling. My wife doesn't care to have slot machines all around the house like I used to. So I mainly buy to repair or restore and then sell.

@tmhatting, it is your time, except for the console bit. Victorian Casino Antiques, March 8th, lot 55.

It looks a lot like Ebay item #6234627953 that Dave mentioned in the Ebay forum in 2005.

Golf Ball Slot

Postby tmhatting » Tue Apr 08, 2008 8:27 pm

Thanks for the heads up on the slot. I feel I have to mention a pet peeve though - for those of you with these beautiful machines -DON'T fill them with those nasty looking shag balls! It's an insult to the machine. :evil:

FYI, the Golf Ball machine that sold at auction went very cheap. Thousands less than what they typically bring.

Someone got a real deal.

I've got 3 quarter machines and a dime. Was into coin-op awhile back, then got back into coins. Here's the Pace Comet:
