Vintage Horse Race Dice Machine Coin-op Gambling Trade Stimulator Arcade Game For Sale
Offering for sale this guaranteed original circa 1934
GATEWAY HORSE SHOES dice game made by the Exhibit Supply Company.
Collectors sometimes refer to these machines as “flat
top” trade stimulators – since they are housed in a rectangular cabinet. They
are rather simplistic in their design and appearance which makes them elegant
when you consider how effective they were at separating a player from their
The HORSE SHOES game has three dice. The player begins
by selecting a horse they want to place a bet on. They slide the front lever to
select a horse. Then, they decide how
much they want to bet. Notice that the
machine does not have a denomination listed. And the coin slide will accept a
penny, nickel, dime or quarter. So once the player sets the horse and inserts
their coin, they push the slide in and pull it back out – setting the game in
When they do that, the coin that they bet gets dropped
into the machine under a window. This allows the game owner to see what the bet
was and pay out the appropriate amount if there is a winning outcome. The coin
slide action also resets an anti-cheating device; which is a simple steel ball
that rests on a dimpled table. If the player tries to move the machine to
manipulate the dice, the ball rolls off the table and voids the play.
The final thing that happens when the coin slide is
pulled is that the dice table is put into motion. As it spins, the dice are
jumbled. One die indicates the winning horse (number 1-6). A second die
indicates if the horse was a WIN, PLACE or SHOW. The 3rd die gives the payout
amounts for a winning horse (depending on their final position).
The game is in fine working condition. In addition to
the main game action operating properly, this machine has ALL of the ORIGINAL
GUM VENDING parts still intact and working. (Please watch the video to see it
work). With so many of these early games
having their gum vending parts removed over the years, it’s nice to have one
that is complete and working.
The game graphics retain great color – although there
is some wear and light, non-offensive staining to some spots on the paper. Please view all 12 photos to see this. The
wooden cabinet is in good overall condition. The back door is a close match but
is a replacement. The game has a newer lock and key that work as they should.
Overall a very nice 100% working example of a fine
vintage pre-war trade stimulator.

I had a few inquiries about the mechanism - so I have added 2 photos showing the internals with the glass and top card removed. GOOD LUCK!
