DVD Series on Antique Slot Machines

Updated 5/11/10

Availability update: The Roulette and Dice DVDs are sold out.

If you want to be notified when more are in then send me an email.

OK, people have talked me into it. I am in the process of putting together a set of DVDs which talk about all sorts of antique slot machines.

I will try to arrange the DVDs logically.

As you can imagine, recording, editing, creating the art work, and manufacturing is not cheap, fast, or easy. However, I like doing this kind of stuff. I will continue to create them as long as there is demand.

Below is a list of DVDs that are either done, in process, or being planned. If you want to purchase any that are done or are in production please send me an email. I do offer significant discounts if multiple DVDs are purchased (e.g., 50% off the unjam DVD when purchased with the restoration DVD set).

The DVDs that are in the "Done" state just means that they have been completed. In the past these have sold out and it sometimes takes a few weeks to get another group made. Please contact me before you send any money. Please add $4.95 to cover shipping and handling for your order. This is per order and not per DVD.

I only accept payment by PayPal. All DVDs come with a money back guarantee. You can return them within 30 days and I will refund your entire purchase price (except the $4.95 shipping / handling fee) via PayPal.

Current Promotion: Purchase any DVD and order a different DVD(s) of equal or lessor value at the same time and get that DVD for 50% off. In addition, once you order any DVD when a new DVD is available we will notify you and you will have the opportunity to purchase that DVD for 50% off the retail price for two weeks upon receipt of the email. Please contact me for more information.

If you want to get an idea of what these look like then please check out my videos which are currently on YouTube. These videos are condensed versions of what are on the DVDs. Since they are on YouTube the quality had to be compressed to make them fit. The quality on the actual DVD is much higher. Go to here to see what is currently available. As the DVDs become available I may remove the YouTube videos.
