Slot Laws in the United States

Antique slot machines are generally for amusement only, not for gambling purposes. The information below is correct to our knowledge; however, we recommend that you check with your local city and state authorities. It is the owner’s responsibility to verify that the ownership of a slot machine is legal within your jurisdiction. Laws are subject to change. What is legal now, may be unlawful at a later date. Don’t rely solely on this article when deciding whether to purchase a slot machine. Ultimately, you will be the one penalized. We assume no responsibility for errors.
