    I know I've seen them. Just can't remember where for sure. Im pretty sure I saw them at the Premium Outets mall. That's where they usually are, right, in malls?

    I'd try some hotels that have arcades, like NYNY, Excalibur and I'm assuming Circus Circus.

    Oh my gosh, I love these and never thought to even look for them in Vegas. I'd imagine some of the arcade areas might have them or like Stratosphere or the roller coaster at NYNY. But I don't know any locations for sure.

    I do the same thing, the gift shop in the Mirage [Impulse] has one.

    *** EDIT ***
    So I stand corrected, according to that site, looks like Impulse removed the machine. But since it was so Mirage-oriented I can't see them just ditching it. It must be somewhere else now.

    I think this thread should be moved to the nooks and crannies thread!

    I can't remember exactly where but we have a few we did at TI. My GF thinks it may have been in Gilley's gift shop.

    So just because I was curious as hell, I called up Impulse at the Mirage and they confirmed that the machine was no longer there. I asked if she knew where they put it, she said she had no idea. She went as far as to say that one day they came in and it was just gone!
    Sounds like Vegas to me, out with the old in with the new.

    There is one on Fremont St, across the street from the D at one of the gift shops.

    The one between Paris and Bally's is still there as the wife and I commented on it less than a week ago when we saw a child getting one out of it. And of course she had to find hers from years ago when we got home haha

    Last Summer I took a drive to Primm and the machine at Whiskey Pete's is still there. The casino has the actual Bonnie and Clyde Death Car on display and you can get two types of pressed pennies with the car on it and Whiskey Pete's. I got several of each as souvenirs.

    There was one in front of the gift shop in the Carlson Tower area of the Golden Nugget a few months ago.

    It seems as though many people are hard pressed to find it.
