Most of the slot machines at Famous Bonanza are old-style coin ones. There are unique and rare titles available here, like Kenny Rogers Gambler, Five Times Pay, Triple Double Diamond and Red, White and Blue. Coin games start at nickel and run up to $5.

Most machines dispense coins to winners. Jackpots require hand pays on these machines, even if below the $1,200 IRS taxable threshold. There are a handful of ticket-in/ticket-out machines. This includes the bar video poker.

The only video poker games we found are at the bar. The denominations are dime and quarter. There is a progressive for royal flushes and four aces, depending on the game. Titles include 8/5 Double Bonus, 7/5 White Hot Aces, 9/5 Double Double Bonus and 8/5 Triple Double Bonus.

There was one bank of Casino Wizard machines offering baccarat, blackjack, craps and double zero roulette. These heads up versions have a $1 minimum bet, except blackjack which has a $3 minimum. Be cautious, blackjack pays 6:5. All four games have a $300 maximum bet.
