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

Such actions may include, as an example only: Removing the listing or other content, issuing a warning, restricting activity or account suspension.
