    hi everyone. First time going to Vegas in two months and I can't wait. Where am I going to find the most older games (like 5 years old or around there). I'm thinking games like Space Monopoly, up up and away monopoly, Viva Monopoly, Jade Palace, Princess Bride, original wizard of Oz, slotsky, pay dirt. Any help is appreciated!

    I know that many people won't step inside it, but Circus Circus and its adjunct Slots of Fun have a lot of the older slots. I guess that is one benefit of not investing in the casino.

    Combination of location and it just being run down. It's one of the most low end places on the strip with very little done as far as upgrades since I started going to Vegas 12 years ago. Slots of Fun is a sister property next door which is pretty shady and no real reason to go into it IMO. That being said last time when I was through circus circus they had lots of older machines.

    There are a few in the Margaritaville section of Flamingo, but most Strip casinos seem to concentrate on the Latest And Greatest (TM) games.

    I find that Gold Coast (off strip) has quite a few of he older games. There is a free shuttle that runs there with the pickup point being back in the Linq area by the high roller.

    Slots o fun is like those old garage style places you see at the beach or boardwalk filled with arcade games. The only difference it's slot machines instead of arcade games.
    Oh and it's also just as dirty.

    Which one is the original Wizard of Oz? If it's the one with the bubble/crystal ball on top, I saw that at quite a few places last week, including Mirage and Cosmo

    I believe that is Ruby Slippers.

    If you're going to the Strip to play games that are 10+ years old (as I do), the pickin's are getting slim. The Strip has a financial interest in removing those older slots and replacing them with new slots and it has everything to do with how low they can adjust the payout %.
    You can still find the original WOZ, I think it's still at Casino Royale. I believe Venetian just removed their 'Monopoly corner' that had several of the one's you mentioned.
    Consider getting off-Strip like Tuscany (behind Bally's) or Gold Coast or go downtown to Fremont St to get your fix. Most Strip casinos still have a few old ones laying around but they're disappearing. You just have to poke around and play what they got. I enjoy many new titles but harder to play 12 hrs a day without noticing how fast the money gets gobbled up. Good luck

    The original WOZ is located at Casino Royale, just down from the entrance from Outback. The last Space Monopoly was at Venetian about a year ago by the desk where you pick up players cards, did real bad on it so I never checked if it's still there.

    As others have said, Slots of Fun has some real old games like Stamped, I think Slotsky, several Hot penny machines too. I go every trip and always get a bonus and some good play time, Circus Circus has a good selection of older games as well, it's a little sprawling so you'll have to looks around quite a bit

    The Wizard of Oz game I love is The Great and Powerful Oz community game. My friend was there last week and told me that the one in Paris was removed. I wonder if Harrah's still has theirs. I used to love the old Monopoly community games, too!
