    We were on Fremont last March and one of the small casinos had only coin slots. I'm thinking Mermaids?
    Now that I think of it, there were 2 small casinos on Fremont like that. One of them only served Hamm's draft beer.

    I'm pretty sure the upstairs part of The D has some coin slots.

    Main Street Station has a few coin-dropper VP machines about a 1/4 of the way in from the north end of the casino.
    And, the California has some coin-dropper VP machines upstairs on the south side of the escalator, just a few steps from the bathrooms (right across from the cash-out machine).

    are ther any casinos downtown or onstrip

    Funny this was brought up. Got me to thinking of last years trip.

    We were in Mermaid's and my wife hit on a nickel slot. They came over and gave her a hand pay. She won $75!!! I guess that beats trying to cash in 1,500 nickels. I joke with her about her first hand pay being for $75.

    As mentioned:

    Mermaids
    LaBayou
    The D (upstairs)
    MSS
    The Cal
    ElCortez

    These are all downtown Fremont Street area. I would go to The D and play those. Good selection. But if you like free well drinks when you play, and lots of them, then go to Mermaids! :drunk:

    They definitely have them upstairs at the D. You can take your wife to the races with your winnings too.

    To be honest, I don't miss the coins that much. I think that TITOs are more convenient.

    After a night of slot playing, your hands used to be BLACK with the residue of the coins. Then there was the constant schlepping of the bucket of nickels, quarters, or dollars, which did get heavy after a while.

    And, the oh-so-frequent hopper jam or empty when cashing out. Always seemed to happen when you were in a hurry to get to a show or something!

    One thing I do miss, silly as it sounds, is the real-life "clank-clank-clank" on a big payout! That recorded one when you cash out your TITO just doesn't do it!

    Thought I'd remembered reading somewhere where Eastside Cannery had devoted a special area to the older, popular coin dropper slots. Must not be losing my mind as I found this on their website.....

    Take your pick from Ticket-In, Ticket-Out machines or coin-in classic slots and get the highest payouts on the Boulder Strip on video poker.

    True, but it sounds like OP's wife has NEVER experienced this. It's something everyone should do once, imo.

    And if OP's wife likes video poker, he should take her to the D and play the ancient "Loose Deuces" machine for a bit, so she can say she played the best paying VP game in the country while playing a coin dropper at the same time. :thumbsup:

    It's been a long time since I've been in there, but Circus Circus had a rather large section of $1 coin droppers over by the sportsbook. You'd see players walking around with those poker chip racks full of the metal $1 tokens. THOSE make a good racket when you hit something!

    Scooping piles of nickels out of the tray loses it's appeal pretty quickly. Coins are so filthy!
