State Laws and Regulations Regarding Private Ownership of Slot Machines

It is crucial the customer verify laws regarding ownership of gambling devices in the state of residence. We provide a State-by-State reference chart below. However, it is the sole responsibility of the customer to determine and verify their own State’s, County’s, Township’s or Municipality’s laws, statutes, and/or ordinances for private home ownership of slot machines and/or gambling devices.

Private home ownership of slot machines is for entertainment and amusement purchases only. Slot machines are sold for home use only. Unless specifically permitted by law, the use of privately owned gambling devices for gambling for profit is strictly prohibited.

Please reference the below chart about the legality of purchasing a slot machine by state. Slot Machines Unlimited cannot fulfill orders originating from states where slot machine purchases are prohibited by law.
