newest slot glass grin

Not hanging yet... grin

We picked this up in Reno last month...

My husband loves this slot glass (or sign) from the Palace Club in Reno. It reminds him of a big win! It was in the early 1970's and he needed cigarettes. He parked the car, leaving his first wife and children inside, while he ran into the Palace Club to buy a pack of smokes. His change was five dimes, and as fate would have it he walked past a dime machine that had five lines. He plinked his dimes into the machine, and lo and behold, he hit the 7's on the 5th line, for the jackpot! Now he's trying to hurry, because the family is waiting in the car! While he's collecting his jackpot of $150 (or so) a woman comes running up saying "That's my machine! You took my machine!" He says the Palace Club employees must have been very familiar with the woman, because they ignored her, they paid him, and he got back on the road!

Good times! grin
