Trade Stimulators

Trade stimulators are countertop machines widely used to encourage shoppers to indulge in a game of chance. They became popular in American saloons during the 1880s, their use spreading to cigar, confectionery, and general stores. Produced in a wide range of designs, they are operated by inserting a coin and pulling a lever, the player standing to win prizes of cigars, cigarettes, candy and other goods if a winning combination comes up. Trade stimulators are very popular today and are always in demand by collectors and investors. Gameroom Show offers a large selection of antique trade stimulators by manufacturers such as Mills, Caille, and Canda.
