    Before TITO and the Bellagio didn't want its guests to have to touch dirty coins. IMG_2267.JPG

    Pretty classy! :D

    Maybe that's why some toll collectors in IL were wearing latex gloves!
    Either that or they do drive-thru prostate exams...:faint:

    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)
     
    Hopefully, finally !!!

    In the early 80s I remember many casinos had these slot gloves. Harrahs were white when you started (and soon black after play).

    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.

    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.

    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).
     
    Oh yes
