Inspired by a couple youtube videos, I'm wondering if there is anywhere - in Vegas or outside - where one can see a collection of cheating devices from the past - ideally with details on how it actually worked. Doesn't all have to be slot related.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XvCMv-oP8vc How This Device illegally Won $44.9 Million From Las Vegas
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gu-KxVxdLZ0 Casino Cheating Devices on display at Nevada State Museum

I promise I am not interested in this for any nefarious purposes!

It just bugs me when movies, shows (I'm looking at you, Ozarks), youtube stories and other print habitually refers to how someone pretty much just waved a device at a slot and magically triggered it to pay a jackpot. Even in the aforementioned youtube videos I feel they are VERY light on the how - to the point it simply doesn't sound plausible in many cases.

I think it would be really fascinating to see these things for real and to really appreciate the ingenuity.

There are some cheaters profiled at the Mob Museum downtown.

There is (or at least used to be) a playing card museum run by USPCC. There might be some cheating stuff there.
