Before TITO and the Bellagio didn't want its guests to have to touch dirty coins.
that's new one for me.
wish they would bring back "clickers" at the tables....once brought my own and it was not appreciated.
LOL I remember some casino (forget which) would give away "professional" slot players mitts!
Maybe that's why some toll collectors in IL were wearing latex gloves!
Either that or they do drive-thru prostate exams...
A blast from the past! Thanks for sharing!
Ha, I guess I played like it was my job.
Lady Luck gave out black and white as I remember my mom wore one back in the 80-90's and would often forget to take it off between nickel sessions. The machine oil residue on those coins was bat-nasty. Good times though. (And when she would take it off it fit neatly in her plastic bucket with the nickels. Ha)
In the early 80s I remember many casinos had these slot gloves. Harrahs were white when you started (and soon black after play).
I still have that glove in my Las Vegas Souvenir Box. I also have coins bucket from the Bellagio.
I missed out on those gloves. I started going to LV at the beginning of the TITOs, so I never messed much with the coin droppers.
Nothing nastier than dragging a hundred dollars worth of quarters out of a bartop video poker dump. I never wore the gloves but I miss the wet naps at the cage.
Nah, their 2nd job is a tax collector.
what is a clicker?
MSS still has wet naps at the cage. And some coin-droppers on the floor.
Back in the day when playing at the tables, the pitboss had a clicker to signal the cocktail waitress that drinks were needed.
And Ty is correct. They still have some coin-droppers at MSS and wetnaps at the cage.
i meant cricket
Lol I never saw those. I started in Vegas right before TITOs became a thing. I think there were one or two places w/TITO but everyone else was still on coin (which was so exciting because THAT was Vegas to us).
