My guess:

You were betting an even amount and then bet and odd amount of credits.



Nice guess.

Correct, I was thinking 1 coin specifically.

I believe(can't remember,some IGT might be different) It may allow it on higher coin amounts and just round down.

Here's the pool at Union Plaza.



It still looks like this? The postcard is 50 years old.

It looked like that 40 years ago. The Union Plaza was built in 1971. Notice the sign that says Hotel Sal Sagev (Las Vegas backwards.) For those who might not know, before the FSE (Fremont Street Experience) you would drive down Fremont St.

I absolutely love these pictures of old downtown Vegas.
46 more days and I'll be downtown myself :-)

Ha ha. I'm not looking for a synonym, but something more arcane.
