Vintage IMP Trade Stimulator Gum Ball / Cigarette Slot Machine - 1940's. This machine is known as a'trade stimulator' They were similar to slot machines in that they have three spinning reels. However, they have no payout and were thus legal in places where slots were not. This machine has cigarette label symbols on the reels. During play, when three like brands lined up, the customer won their choice of smokes from the operator.
In addition, each penny play dispenses a gumball in order to maintain the illusion of no gambling. Imp has a metal flap which flips over the reels and has a radio dial printed on the other side making the machine look very much like a small radio to unknowing authorities. The slot part of this does work with a nickel but I don't have any gum balls to test that part. All of my items come from a smoke free private home.I try to describe everything as accurately as possible. When purchasing multiple items please wait for an invoice before paying.
