Vintage Las Vegas Slot Machine
25-cent, 3-reel, fruit
circa 1967
Bally Model 809

We bought this slot machine from “A Ancient Slots” in Las Vegas in 1991 and have owned it since.  It was used in a casino for some number of years, then reconditioned and sold.
I don’t have other machines or the experience to rate it’s condition, but in my opinion it’s in very good condition.  It looks good and works well.  It probably has some bulbs that are burnt out.
I cannot offer a warranty for this item due to the weight and cost of freight, but I will demonstrate to the buyer that it works prior to sale.  If the buyer is local they can operate it personally, otherwise I can demonstrate the operation over Skype or other video call.  It is being sold as-is, no warranty, no refunds.
Included with the machine is 1)a stand and 2)a Bally Slot Machine Service Instruction and Parts Catalog.  This is a fully analog machine that should be able to be serviced well into the future with standard parts like coils, relays and capacitors and the service instruction and parts catalogue.
The machine weighs approximately 180 pounds and I would estimate the stand weighs 20 pounds.
The buyer will be responsible for arranging pickup, packaging, and freight shipping and insurance.

Excerpt from ebay policies regarding “Selling antique slot machines”

Sellers in most states can list slot machines that are at least 25 years old as long as they include the age of the machine in the listing. A few states require that slot machines be even older to qualify for antique status, but a few allow more recent machines. Check your local laws to ensure that your transaction is lawful in your area.

However, buyers and sellers in the following states may not buy or sell antique slot machines because of laws prohibiting slot machine ownership in their state:

  • Alabama
