The HORSE SHOES game has three dice. The player begins by selecting a horse they want to place a bet on. They slide the front lever to select a horse. Then, they decide how much they want to bet.
JR0647 Mutoscope ‘Junior Digger’ Dispensing machine Model 810
Digger/crane coin-op amusement device manufactured by the International Mutoscope Reel Co., of New York. Produced during the heyday of digger/crane amusement games, this example, titled “Junior Crane,” displays a beautiful wood exterior and more closely resembles a piece of furniture than an amusement device. The intricate interior design features a working crane which can be maneuvered by means of knobs on the front control panel. The insertion of a coin allowed the customer to operate the crane, through the use of which he or she attempted to grasp any number of various prizes that would have been displayed within the case. If the customer were lucky enough to snag a prize, he or she would then maneuver the crane over the top of the exit chute and release it so that it could be collected on the outside.
