Image #3: Pot-O-Silver. One of my favorites. You put a quarter in the top and hope it triggers a good free fall of them out the bottom. I sometimes get several dollars back at a time, but in general I run a slight deficit. This model is a small one. Truckstops sometimes have huge ones that are octagonal sided.

    That *is* funny. The same game has lots of different names.At the beach I see it called "Flippa Winna". It will have images of dolphins on it. In Flippa Winna the quarters are inserted from the bottom and are flung up into the play area by a spinning cylindrical brush. Winnings still fall off the front of the push tray through a chute.Trying to be touchy, I view words like "flippa", "winna", and "Whiskas" (the cat food) as a secret Northern plot against Southerners. I prefer my "r's", or "er's", to be long, hard, and drawl-y. Whis-kerrrrs! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜†
