Just curious. Here in NC it's one of those back-room things that goes
on and operator makes enough money, that if he gets caught and the law
seized the unit, no big deal. I have a line on some very nice,
high-quality units and was wondering where I could market to.

Thanks

Don't know if they are legal or not, I suppose they probably are, but I
have seen them in plain sight in several places here in WV, such as
high traffic truck stops and gas stations.

I know I've seen them here in MI at carnivals.. I wanna say they were
using real quarters too, not tokens. Is this considered gambling or
something? I suppose it is, but I just consider it "throwing your
money away". (Which I suppose is a pretty accurate definition for
gambling too!)

Not that it helps, but I can remember playing them at the Seattle
Center years ago. I have no idea if they're still there. I agree that
it was an addicting game. The one I played consisted of several model
bulldozers that moved back and forth. You drop your quarter into a
slot that you could move left and right to 'aim'.

Ah, memories....

I've seen them in Indiana and Pennsylvania. We're talking about put a
quarter in, a pusher pushes the quarter onto more quarters, the player
hopes to have more quarters pushed over the edge, right? There are
carnival games that are simpler that use tokens here in Iowa. There are
prizes and prize chips on top of the tokens. Both kinds are EXTREMELY
addicting.

I think the ones at the Seattle center run on tokens, but it's been years
since I played one. They are all over in Vegas in the older casinos. -dan

They have them here in Vegas, of course.
They are very addictive.

Oregon doesn't seem to go for that (as far as i know) All uptight about
gambling :/  The only place i've seen those are the at wunderland and it
was using nickels, they would drop and instead of winning a nickel back
you woulg get a ticket. It would of been much more enjoyable to win
back nickels instead of tickets.

We have them here in the state of NY, the ones in the arcades usually
operate on tokens, and the ones at the carnivals usually operate on quarters
but i have seen them operate on tokens as well. They are very popular here
at carnivals and in the arcade, i remember seeing them even when i was a
kid.
