In many states this machine fell under the definition of a vending machine and therefore was declared legal until legislation could be passed to outlaw this type as well. The local operators, with the help of the manufacturers, heavily "lobbied" state legislatures to keep them legal. Often they could tie up the legislation for years if not permanently! This 4-column vendor front machine is very rare due to the combination of other O. K" features - the "Future Pay feature (see below) and Fortune Telling Reel Strips.
With the Future Pay feature you play the machine and whatever the outcome, win or lose it shows up on a small window on the front of the machine. But there's no payout! If you had a winner, it takes another nickel to get the payout a sure thing and legally speaking not gambling since the player knew the payout was coming on the next pull. The operator got an extra nickel. Condition : The mechanism works but the mint dispenser seems to be stuck and I did not want to force it.
