Some of these Pathé newsreels we've seen before, but seems they're available on YouTube now.

Sartana visits the 'Gambrling Casino' !PUZZLED! at Poker Falls. Strange... Fey invented the one arm bandit in 1898, a few years after the Wild West was 'tamed', and yet these machines look much later. But in other ways the film is more or less a documentary of America in the late 1800s. SkEpTiCaL

Can anyone identify these bandits?



Sartana demonstrates how to stop the reels in the jackpot position (permanently).

Given this looks like a Italian spaghetti western, the machines are obviously Italian, the Ascots... also made the Astors as well... Yes, 1960s, only out by 80 years. :cool:

Following the box office success of Fistful of Dollars, Cinecittà Studios churned out hundreds of these westerns over a roughly ten year span, largely serving a domestic and 'third world' appetite for them. No set designer's credited, just a props department (S.E.T.). Funny they decided these (modern at the time) games would do.

The one in the foreground is clearly, as you say, the Astor twin-jackpot Check-Mate, spayed grey, with the maker's badge covered over. Don't think I've seen the other, cruder-looking, models in the background - presumably by the same Italian maker?
