This toy is great as a decoration on a bar but it should not be played with for any extended time. Recently a 6 year started playing with it and within 15 minutes, the money was hanging up in the return and the bells were stuck on. We immediately took it away from her. It's great but will not withstand much play time.
This Crazy Diamond Slot Machines works just like a real slot machine including returning all the coins that you put in when you hit the jackpot and if you want to use it as a bank, they have seperate slot which allows you to save your coins without spinning the wheels. We found this slot machine from Overstock.com $$$ less than the same slot machine in one of those ***** magazines. Shipping was a steal at $1.00 compared to $$$ plus handling fees by ****** magazine. This slot machine is a real novelty and always catches the eyes of our family and friends.
This would be a much better item if: a) It was half the price. b) It would hold more than just maybe $10 worth of quarters. c) It gives you different jackpots as opposed to one. There are some good things about this though. It works just fine w/o batteries (they are needed for sound and lights only...both of which are pretty dim) and the gears seem to be of high quality. There are 2 slots. One in front is for the jackpot which holds maybe 25 quarters. The back (where it does not count in with the jackpot) is a piggy bank which holds maybe 50 more quarters. It does work pretty well though and seems pretty sturdy (though probably not sturdy enough to withstand accidental drops on the floor). I just think the price point is a bit too high for something that is barely a foot tall.
