{151}{}{You see one ugly-looking slot machine. It is covered with rust and is dented in several places, as if struck repeatedly by a heavy object.}

{240}{}{You grab its arm and shake it warmly. As you do, there is a sharp rattling sound!}

# PLAY. . . ? (WTG, 14, 15)
{245}{}{(You see a slot machine. It is perhaps the ugliest slot machine you have seen in New Reno. Its handle is bent, two of its windows are broken, and there are dents all over it.)}
{246}{}{Your hand quivers as you reach for your chips. (The machine continues to whisper at you in its gravely voice.) *Come on, now…::cough::…that's it…*}

{250}{}{There is a ear-numbing rattling noise as the chambers spin, and…}
{251}{}{NOTHING! (The machine chuckles dryly.) *Better luck next time, youngst -- ::cough:: ::cough:: ::wheeze::}

# WIN x2 (8)
{260}{}{Eventually, the tumblers rattle to a stop to reveal… }
{261}{}{(The machine chuckles warmly.) *That's it, youngster. I knew you cou… ::cough:: ::cough:: …do it.*}

# WIN x3 (8)
{265}{}{(The machine laughs.) *That's it, whippersnapper! I knew I still had some… ::wheeze:: …moxy left! Heh-heh!*}

{270}{}{(Before you is perhaps the ugliest slot machine you have ever seen. As you stare at its ugliness in morbid fascination, suddenly a gravelly male voice whispers from the coin slot.) *Ain't seen a youngster like you around before - ::cough:: ::cough:: You looking… ::hack:: ::wheeze::… ta take a chance?*}

{275}{}{*I'm still here, youngster,* the slot machine rattles. *Look, come on now…y'wanta place a bet? I ain't long fer this world.*}

{306}{}{Shurr will -- you toooo, okayyy?}

# JACKPOT! (8)
{310}{}{(As you pull the bent handle, you think you hear the machine give a relieved sigh, followed by a long silence. Just when you are about to give up on it, you hear something rattling from deep within the machine. A few seconds later, the rattling grows to a deafening roar as coins start piling out in an avalanche!) JACKPOT!}
{311}{}{Collect winnings!}

{315}{}{(This machine looks like it has finally given up the ghost. It looks as if paying off the jackpot was its death rattle. You can't help but feel a little sorry for it.)}

{326}{}{This machine is ancient. It is a miracle it's still working. You tinker with it for a while and clean some of the gears, but it's still in sorry shape.}


This is the message file for Old Man McGee's slot machine. When McGee was removed, the slot machine was too. The machine was originally going to be the far right machine in the southernmost row of machines in the Shark Club.
