Slot machine for home?

I want to buy a slot machine for use in my own home as a way to save money? Is it legal?

I just want to have a slot machine to keep in my house to play at my own leisure. I figure it will be a good way to save some money and then treat myself to something when I win. First of all, is this legal? And secondly, what is a good slot machine to buy? I see that most available online only accept tokens. I want mine to accept quarters. Any suggestions?

The legality of owning a slot machine varies by state and country. In the United States, some states allow private ownership of slot machines, while others require a special license or prohibit it altogether. It is important to check your state and local laws before purchasing a slot machine for personal use.

Assuming it is legal in your state, you can find slot machines for sale online or at auctions. Make sure to research the seller and the machine thoroughly before making a purchase to ensure you are getting a fair deal and a working machine.

In terms of what type of slot machine to buy, there are many options available. Some people prefer vintage machines, while others may want newer models with more features. It is important to consider the size and style of the machine, as well as its functionality and compatibility with your home electrical system.

Regarding the acceptance of quarters, many modern slot machines are designed to only accept tokens or bills. However, there are still some vintage machines that can be modified to accept quarters. It is best to consult a professional slot machine technician to make any modifications to the machine.

It is also important to remember that while playing slot machines can be a fun pastime, it is still a form of gambling and can lead to addiction or financial troubles. It is important to set limits on spending and to never gamble more than you can afford to lose.


  1. perfectly legal. approach a casino. you might get one free or cheap when they are upgrading. good idea.

  2. First off, yes its legal. my grandmother had one. ^_^
    second, have you tried ebay? auctions?
    have you tried these sites?

    I’m pretty sure one of them will do. Happy gambling!

  3. Yes completely legal as long as you don’t use it to make money. A true slot machine will run you some coin to purchase, because they are a machine for making money. Good luck in your searches. Try Ebay to start.

  4. Most available for sale are token based. But any good slot machine tech should be able to convert it for you.

    It is totally legal to have a slot machine in your home. It only becomes an issue if you let anyone else play it, unless it is not used for gambling, only fun.

    If someone wins or loses on your machine and leaves your home with a net win or loss, you could easily run foul of anti-gambling laws.

    The safest option is to leave it as a token machine, that way there can be no question as to what it is doing.
