Default Buying A Used Slot Machine

Does anyone have any recommendations on where to buy used slot machines locally? Would like to avoid the craigslist route.

Thanks in advance

You might try Gambler's General Store.

I believe they had a few slot machines last time I was there.

There were a couple of FREE slot machines on Craigslist last month. One seller expressed that "YOU WILL NOT RECIEVE ANY HELP FROM ME AT ALL"...."DON'T EVEN ASK!!!!"

Or something like that.

That's because when you hand out a used piece of technology- computers included, the recipients seem to think it comes with free tech support for life.

You can buy used slot machines IN LAS VEGAS as long as you don't remove them from LAS VEGAS and they are for your home use only. There is a Dealer on CL I have spoken with several times who seem to know there stuff and are a touch high, but the machines look to be in good shape.

You will need a form from the Gambling Commission that you have a for home use only slot machine in your house.

I have one, and it is a LOT of fun, both for me, and my company.

NEVADA Any Machine LEGAL. Individuals may only sell two a year with required application filed with Nevada gaming control board.

I read somewhere (here?) that if you win the progressive Lions Share at MGM they will give you the machine. True?

Thanks for all the replies. Would love to walk into a store and buy one but the closest one (i think) is about 110 miles away. I don't mind the drive as long as they have a decent selection. The place is Rocky Mountain Slots. Any insights on them?

It's more fun for you since you don't let us keep the winnings.
