The machines are filled with quarters, with some dollar bills (occasionally a $20) buried in their midst. Customers pay 25 cents to play a song, and once you drop a quarter in, there’s a chance it pushes money out of the machine.
If a raffle is conducted by the State, a tribal Government, or a qualified non-profit organization, it is legal. However, all other raffles are illegal, including those conducted by a for-profit organization, an individual, or a non-qualified charitable organization. I wonder when we’ll see pictures published of the state destroying the machines, reliving the days of when pinball machines were treated in the same manner. The arcades should be allowed to sell them off to everywhere else in the country where they are not illegal. I guess this is a reason why operators need to follow politics to some degree so they know what to watch out for.

The falling coin strikes other coins on an upper shelf, causing them to move. The machine also contains moving arms, or paddles, which push the coins, causing them to fall from the upper shelf to the lower shelf, in a “waterfall” effect. Two bumper areas on the lower shelf of the machine return coins to the “house” through side holes. Quarters which are not returned to the “house,” but which get pushed off the lower shelf, are dispensed to the player. Once a quarter is dropped, the player has no control over the movement of the quarters or how they fall. Once play is initiated, the device produces a video simulation of reels spinning, after which the reels come to rest.
