*What are Contemporary Slot Machines

Some slot enthusiasts want to know why a slot that was originally made in the 1930s is labeled as a contemporary slot.

Over the years slot collectors have made exact replacement parts in order to fix or restore a slot machine. Today a collector has access to replacement parts for the entire machine for some slot machine models.

A contemporary slot machine would consist of 80-100% of replacement parts. The slot would then be fully restored and tested to assure that it works as well as a slot that came off the factory line.

A contemporary slot generally costs $1000 -$2000 less than a slot that has very few replacement parts.

If your primary goal is to play and enjoy a slot machine with a 1930s or 1940s look, then a contemporary slot makes sense for you.

If your primary goal is to own a slot that was made in the 1930s, and has very few replacement parts, then spending the extra $1000-2000 makes sense for you and we would advise against buying a contemporary slot.

Contemporary slot machines are generally more readily available than other slot machines. It is extremely hard to determine whether a slot machine is a contemporary model or not.

Most dealers, especially on Ebay or at an auction, will not tell you. If you see a restored 1930s or 1940s style slot machine priced under $3000, it is probably a contemporary machine.
