With most trade stimulators the player is passive, he pulls the handle and watches to see if he is lucky. It's all over in just a few seconds. But if you like to stretch out the suspense and be an active participant in your game of chance, then the Draw Poker trade stimulator is for you. With the draw poker game, you get to "hold""or "draw"additional cards just as when you are playing with cards.
One of the more desirable draw poker games is the 1934 Rock-ola Hold and Draw counter game. Its art deco design captured the imagination of many players. After inserting a penny, you push down the lever. You then push down the buttons in front of the cards you want to hold. Push the handle again and the cards not "held" are replaced. The game is fun to play and its art deco design is pleasing to look at.
Also popular in the 1930's, was the Penny Ante draw poker game. With this game, you insert a penny and push the handle down and leave it there. Then if you want to replace any of your cards, you insert additional pennies in slots directly behind the card. You then lift the handle to spin the reels again and see your new cards. The Penny Ante was a low cost plain looking machine, but was highly profitable for the operator because the player had to insert multiple coins each time.
