    Bored at work today, so asking a possibly pointless question that I've had on my mind for some time.

    Is there a comprehensive list of slot locators out there? I'm looking for a couple themed machines that I suspect may be hard to find nowadays. The CET slot locator listed one of them as being at The Quad (not the Linq), so I have no idea how reliable that data even is. Bellagio's slot locator didn't even pull up correctly on my phone. It seems like the most reliable method is word of mouth, at least here on VMB.

    What are my options for trying to figure out these locations on my own? Or am I at the mercy of the VMB community here to help me out?

    (The specific machines I'm looking for are Ghostbusters and the older versions of Wizard of Oz, circa 2012 perhaps.)

    Thanks in advance!

    The Boyd group has a slot search. Go to bconnectedonline.com and find it in the upper right of the homepage.

    For Ghostbuster machines, I played both old and new versions at the Mirage a couple weeks ago. They are back near The Pantry.

    Never knew these existed. What are the 3R 25L and similar numbers after the description? Do they give you an exact casino location? I notice some didn't have any numbers after description. Does that mean they don't have those machines? Is there a map with the specific slot locations so one doesn't have to wander around looking?( If the previous numbers are not locators.)

    At the Mirage, the old Ghostbusters slots were kind of in the corner, by Japanois. But they were facing the perimeter of the casino, so you wouldn't see them if you were just walking through the main walkway. The newer Ghostbusters slots (Slimers gone wild) were near the Pai Gow pit.

    I was pleasantly surprised by how many old Ghostbusters machines were still scattered throughout Vegas. I played it at TI too, and I know I saw it at a few other places as well (e.g. MGM).

    The Wizard of Oz machines are owned by WMS. The WMS website no longer offers the Slot Machine Locator (which I've used in the past). It may be difficult to locate any of the original WoOz machines. Even the Ruby Slipper machines are being replaced by newer Oz machines. As of March 2017 Aria still had two Ruby Slippers machines.

    Good luck on your search!

    I have always used the CET slot finder to check what machines are available---but this past week I keep getting an error message(page you are looking for not available)--is anyone else having this problem with CET?

    I look at those occasionally, but I don't trust them to be accurate, it's way too much work to keep them updated. If I'm looking for a common machine I'm 99% sure a casino will have, then I trust the listing to probably be accurate as far as denoms/lines, etc. But If I'm looking for a newer machine and it says they don't have it, or an old one and it says they do have it, I don't really trust that to be accurate.

    My guess is the "3R" refers to a 3 reel layout, and "25L" refers to 25 paylines on the machine.
