Best place to find slots that were popular in prior years

Just when I find a slot machine I really enjoy (one of the themed bonus game types) it is replaced by a newer machine. On my next trip to Las Vegas I'd like to find some of the hard to find game slots that I have enjoyed in prior years, but don't have time to go to every casino. Until a casino builds a "slot machine heaven" room that features all the top slots of the past 10 years I can only hope to get lucky and occasionally run across one of the good "oldies". Are there any particular casinos that might be good ones to start at in looking for the best variety of older slots?

You have a much better chance Downtown. Last time I was at Four Queens I noticed some older machines, including my wife's favorite WOZ machine.

For some real old school machines, check out the second floor of The D on Fremont.

Another vote for going Downtown and playing the slots on the second floor of the D. These machines are coin operated so you have to get a roll of coins from the cashier and feed them into the older slots. It feels weird walking around again with a big plastic cup of coins.

As mentioned above, Downtown is your best bet for "older machines"....The upper level of the D, as well as, All the other downtown properties, each has a small selection of older machines that you may enjoy. For vintage video poker/keno machines that still use quarters and/or dollar tokens try Main Street Station and The California. Good Luck & Enjoy.

Another vote for the D on the second floor. Also, check the El Cortez downtown as well.

I usually find some of the older machines in the Boyd Properties as well (Orleans, Gold Coast).

Sam's town has loads of old games. You can get a free shuttle from Harrahs or the Fremont/California downtown.

And yet another vote for the 2nd floor of the D.

Though this isn't what you asked, D Hotel also has comfortable, updated rooms and the D Grill is fabulous.

What games were you looking for? I found that the Silverton had a lot of older video slots in good condition. They aren't coin slots, though.
