Are there any coin-in, coin-out slot machines left in Las Vegas? I had heard the Eastside Cannery had a few, but I couldn't find them on my visit last year.

Eastside had coin droppers in an alcove room on the west (Bounder Highway) side of their casino six months or so ago--they might have been VP however, as I think about it. California had coin-droppers Downtown just a month ago, off the front door near Main Street. But they are certainly getting rare.

The ElCo has some $1 slot coin droppers and some VP as well.

Upstairs at the Fitz had some about 5 years ago. Yes, they are getting rare. Good riddance.

El Cortez has a ton of Video Poker.

Slots Of Fun has some of their inventory on TITO but some is still coin based...

And then if you go to the dives you can find tons of coin machines: Poker Palace, Silver Nugget, Klondike on Sunset,...I want to say some Water St casinos in Henderson have them too but I might be wrong.

As of july 2009:

Most are located downtown. The Fitz has theirs all over the place, not just upstairs. You have to look for them.

Both Mermaids and El Cortez have some and there were a few in Slots A Fun but waaay less than my visit a year before.

Vegas Club has coin machines. They actually have some very good Joker Poker games with 100%+ payouts.

Fremont also has some coin machines as you get back toward the registration desk. Played a $1 coin machine without paying close attention on my last trip.

Didn't one of the casinos open up a whole area of older machines that took coins. Besides the ones mentioned at Sam's Town, the Silverton has some coin in keno machines near the keno area.

MSS still has one bank of quarter 9/6 JoB near that cage that's coin based.

I want to play in that area because they offer a more premium drink selection than even the pit, but I don't want to deal with the coins.

Calif has a lot of those in the Keno section. Never play those due to the inconvience of cashing out.

California Hotel has the original coin in/out machines. On their 25 cents VP machines on the second floor, you cannot use bills. You must hand feed the coins and the wins automatically drop in the tray. I believe the dollar coin machines are still there next to the elevators at the check-in area.

The other hotels do have coin in machines, but you can also use bills. The wins accumulate until you cash out.

I still miss the sound of coins falling and carrying those coins around in a bucket.
I also miss the old neon buzz.
My understanding is they changed to paper was to foil the cheats.
Vegas lost millions to the cheats that had these little homemade lights almost like a laser that they would stick up the payout chute. The small light would confuse the payout tumblers and the machine would pay more money. (that's the idea of sorts)
Coming up with the paper payout has stopped this kind of cheating.

They also saved in operating costs. Fewer slot employees needed, reduced workers comp costs without handling the bags of coins, less working parts inside the machine, etc.

Laughlin has quite a few places that take coins. The Riverside has a few quarter and dollar machines, Golden Nugget has some, Pioneer has some, and there is another place or 2.

Thanks everyone for the answers. I leave for Vegas in a few hours and it looks like I will have to travel to the Downtown casinos to get the vintage Vegas coin experience.

When I have to pump in a stack of coins, it seems to end up costing me less losses than just slipping a $20 bill into a slot. Plus I love the real noise of coins hitting a pan versus the synthetic sound the tito machines make.
