Created by the O.D. Jennings & Company of Chicago, this Golfa Rola upright golf ball vendor slot machine is an incredibly rare piece of vintage Americana. The 25-cent slot is in impeccable condition, complete with its original glass display front that showcases the multitude of golf balls (which are original to the machine) that can be won – with luck! Found in prominent golf clubs across the country, these nostalgic machines were designed to pay out in golf balls rather than money. With a single spin, a player could take a chance at winning up to 10 golf balls.

Floor model slot machines such as this are far rarer than their countertop-sized counterparts - such machines were only found in high-end golf resorts of the early and mid-20th century. What makes this machine all the rarer is that vendor slot machines such as this one were declared gambling devices in 1941 - just a year after the Golfa Rola went into production. Thus, production of these new models would not only have abruptly ended, but any unsold machines would have been destroyed.

Circa 1940
