Slot machines policy

Slot machines can only be listed in areas where it is legal for them to be owned by both the seller and buyer, unless they are non-functional.

As the sale and ownership of slot machines is restricted by some state laws, it's important to follow our guidelines.

What is the policy?

  • Functioning slot machines must be legal to sell in a seller's location, and need to exclude shipping details from any location where it is not legal for them to be sold
  • A slot machine may be listed if it meets one of these requirements:
    • Does not accept currency
    • Is non-functional and built for display purposes
    • Has been permanently altered so it can't accept currency and can't be converted into an operational slot machine

Activity that doesn't follow eBay policy could result in a range of actions including for example: administratively ending or canceling listings, hiding or demoting all listings from search results, lowering seller rating, buying or selling restrictions, and account suspension. All fees paid or payable in relation to listings or accounts on which we take any action will not be refunded or otherwise credited to your account.
