    This is part to inform, part to gauge interest. I was in Vegas last week, and a funny thing happened.

    Last year, I had found a set of four Let It Ride slot machines in Bellagio, and loved playing on them. The game is exactly the same as the table one, but you can bet as low as $1 per spot. You can also still get rated on these machines. They were right by the Lily Lounge. And I have never seen these machines in anywhere else in my life.

    So, when I was on the strip last week, monday night, I immediately went to the same location and I found the machines. I played for a while. Tuesday night, I went there again, and all four machines were full. Not surprisingly, I went there on wednesday night again and the machines were all gone. I circled around the Lily Lounge thinking they might have been moved, but no luck. I checked with a slot attendant and she confirmed that the machines were gone for good wednesday morning!

    I visit Vegas a couple nights a year, and what are the odds of the machines being disappeared when I am there! It was such a weird coincidence. I was wondering if any of you folks liked/played these machines and maybe we might ask the Bellagio casino management to bring them back.

    The drawback with those machines are they are very old, well over a decade, so they probably got yanked for being out of date. I've never noticed them at Bellagio, I with I had though, sometimes those machines also have good VP on them. I've seen them in other casinos across the country, but they usually meet the same fate. They eventually get pulled.

    I tend to be lucky, and I usually seem to catch playing games I like right before they get removed. 9/6 JoB w/STP at Gold Coast, 9/6 Boner Deluxe bartops at Suncoast are a couple examples. The last time I just missed out on a game is wanting to play 99.9%+ nickel VP at SLS in Feb. 2015, those were pulled just days before I arrived. :(

    Palms had one OMG Puppies machine I liked and it got pulled mid trip on me too. Cosmo has one Oodles of Poodles machine I like (hmmmm seems to be a theme here) and I'm always expecting it to be gone each trip but it has survived the cut thus far.

    "Oodles of Poodles" is difficult to find. I'm surprised Cosmo still has it. I believe "Fiesta Chihuahua" is a similar slot math concept and is in a lot more casinos...but I know it's not the same! :(

    Are these the really old multi-game machines that used to be back by the Keno area? It's probably been 10+ years since I played them at Bellagio and they were the only multi-game machines I have ever played that had Let It Ride included in the games offered. And I think they even had 25 cent machines back there with Let It Ride on them..

    I never ran across them at bellagio, but at other casinos they were always Bally gamemaker multigame machines. Last time I played one was at Horseshoe Southern Indiana in 2012. Played let it ride for 25c a credit.

    Here is a stock image.

    We were in NYNY back by the area of the registration and found the afore said Game Maker machines two weeks ago. They did have multi games on them and Let It Ride was one of them. You can play it for 25 cents. We sat and played for a long time on them until we left to eat at Nine Fine Irishmen. So, there is still an option for Let It Ride. BTW the machines are very dated and will probably be exiting sometime in the future.

    These machines were not multiple games, they were dedicated Let It Ride. And they didn't look as old as the one tringlomane posted. But they were still oldish (the TITO comes out into an opening, where you have to stick your hand in to pick it up).

    Really liked the Let IT Ride Bally Game Maker's too. Last time I played them in LV was at the Las Vegas Club before it closed. They were in the backroom. If anyone has seen them Downtown, please post.

    That's good news, thanks! Maybe they just moved them around then.
