Can anything replace the old-fashioned thrill of the crashing, jangling sound of coins or tokens hitting that metal tray and cascading into your lap? If you think the little slip of paper doesn’t offer quite the same oomph, pizzazz, or excitement, here’s BIG news. Although vintage slot machines are getting much harder to find these days, several Las Vegas casinos still offer the fun of the original coin-operated devices.
History of the One-Armed Bandit
The first slot machine was the 1895 invention of mechanical engineer Charles Fey in San Francisco. It was a wonder of levers and spinning reels. He called it ‘The Liberty Bell’ because a line-up of 3 Liberty Bell pictures would win the prize… 50 cents! The game was wildly popular and soon the mechanical games were everywhere. You can still view the original Liberty Bell slot machine at the Nevada State Museum in Las Vegas.
Find Coin-Op Slot Machines
Classic Coin Machines! You can play $1 tokens in the Main Casino on an extensive selection of token slots right near the front entry. Twenty machines pay out in $1 tokens.
Slots A Fun
Means Lots o’ Fun. Try your luck! All eight quarter machines near the front of the casino take and dispense real coins.
There’s no sound sweeter than hitting a jackpot at the El Cortez, especially on one of the original coin machines. From exciting penny and nickel machines to video poker, video keno, video reels, and multi-game machines, El Cortez is one of the only places in Las Vegas where patrons can enjoy both ticket and coin-operated machines.
Coin-Op Video Poker
Main Street Station
Showcasing the splendor of the Victorian era, main Street Station offers dozens of rare antiques and curiosities, including 15 or more 25-cent denomination video poker games that accept and dispense quarters.
Old School rules! Vintage Vegas is alive and well at The Plaza with several denominations of coin-in & coin-out video poker. Plus! Every Tuesday in October, The Plaza hosts a video poker tournament. The top point earner of each night will win a vintage coin machine.
Coin-Op Sigma Derby
Introduced in 1985, Sigma Derby is an indoor, coin-operated horse race game for up to 10 players. Play it while you can. Only 25 cents! The D is the last property in Las Vegas to offer the coin-operated Sigma Derby horse racing game. Make stopping at The D a priority as Sigma Derby is devilishly challenging to maintain.
