Re: French slot dealer

Hi there, there are no French slot dealers because slot machines are still prohibited in public areas in France except casinos since 1937... But if you ask collectors, you may find what you are looking for... In this particular case, an original Paris-courses topper, I don't think you will find anyo...

A game like this was sold at Nic Costa's auction. There are 3 different versions - the most interesting one has ...

Re: Seven mysteries of the Saxony allwin

Unfortunately, I don't! I got a batch of advertising flyers from the grand son of a French Riviera distributor who was mainly in activity in the '20s and '30s.

Re: Domino / Lucky Dice / Le Juge de Paix

Where do you know from that the ad is from 1912 ? Well, I dated the ad 1912 on my website to illustrate the date of first production of the game, not the ad.
