Plaza Hotel & Casino to Give Away Vintage Coin Operated Slot and Video Poker Machines in October

Plaza Hotel & Casino to Give Away Vintage Coin Operated Slot and Video Poker Machines in October
Paying homage to its vintage Vegas gambling roots, the Plaza Hotel & Casino will have two special casino contests to give away a dozen classic coin machines, including traditional slot, keno and video poker games, some of which are more than 25 years old.

While the coin machines like Joker Poker, Deuces Wild and Catch the Heat have nostalgic popularity, they are not compatible with new slot technologies and cannot track points and play. The vintage machines have also become increasingly harder to maintain. As a result, the Plaza will be taking them out of service and giving them away as part of two casino promotions in October.

A video poker tournament will occur every Tuesday in October. The winner of each week’s tournament will receive a classic coin operated video poker machine as the grand prize. In addition, the Plaza will host a points challenge from Oct. 1 through Oct. 29. Players can earn points throughout the month playing reel slots, video poker and video keno. The eight players with the highest points accumulated over the month will win a coin machine (keno, slot or video poker game).

“These machines are a part of Vegas history, and we wanted to give our locals a chance to have their own piece of our city’s great legacy,” said Jonathan Jossel, CEO of the Plaza Hotel & Casino.

To be eligible to win a machine, participants must be Nevada residents with valid Nevada ID, 21-years of age or older, and members of the Plaza’s Royal Rewards players club. Winners will have seven days to pick up their coin machine and will be responsible for future maintenance. Full contest rules are online.
