Of course, the pix are all "gaming" related. I had been there before, but it was the first visit for Mrs. Q.

In hindsight, I probably should have taken a picture of the big check they have on display showing the $ 400K ( if I recall correctly ) that has been donated to charity.

I went the last 3 times I was in Vegas. I always end up putting $10+. There's this tall/vertical pinball machine that's so much fun

I like the style of slot machines. They are so authentic and oldskool)))

I don't recall winning a single nickel from any of them, though. And it's not like they have that much overhead, it's just an old store of some kind.

Actually, there is a bingo pinball (that takes nickels) in there somewhere, although they make it quite clear that they will not buy back credits. (Too bad - I had it up to 250.)

And it was originally two stores that I think shared a wall - a paint store and some other interior decorating store, I think. As for overhead, I can only imagine what the electric bill is, considering that every machine is turned on for 12 hours a day.

I managed to visit the PHoF the last two times I've been in Vegas and stayed for at least 2 hours each. The upright pinball machine is especially mesmerizing. It was also the most expensive (still cheaper than craps hehe) at $1 a game. I must have put in $10-20 in that machine alone.

Another fun one, imho, is the old-fashioned baseball, with the little tin runners rounding the bases.
