Most areas in Texas that used to have them no longer do. Many thought they could place candy in the upper area of the machine so they would say the candy peppermint was a quarter and playing the machine was free. This hasn't held up in most areas and getting hard to find them in most locations. There are still a few in scattered areas but more that don't than do. You should go out into the area you are wanting to place the machines and start asking alot of independent convience store owners if they would like one in their store. You will likely find a bunch of owners telling you they already had one and were told to remove it!

Great but don't give up hope. They can change and come after you any time. All it takes in the wrong person or group to complain about them being gambling devices and force the authorities into doing something. Hope you luck holds up.

or floor so no one shakes them.we put a nice watch or $20 bill near the front of them
to get people playing them more.some people worry about the laws with these
types of machines .i was told they fall into the gray area and are ok.
one thing for sure you must keep a eye on these machines or have someone
you can really trust.to easy to shake or bump and get money out

i dont know about texas but here in tn and ky it is up to local sheriff as there is no "gaming authority" really as there are no casinos..casinos are the ones that wil push local law enforsement to pick up these machines as well as any kind of competing machine for their casino..
its normally the store owner who really takes risk as most states to enforce their law(kansas for one) told businesses they would lose their liquor/beer license if they didnt remove machines..and of course the vendor would get his machine bulldozed at the landfill if he didnt remove it fast before they could come and pick it up....
they make the best money you can make in vending ive found,,ive got a few that do over 2K a month for a 500 buck machine off of ebay..Im building my own machines now and i plan on putting a bunch out over next year or as long as i can before they clamp down around here like kansas..gotta make the dough while i can!!
oh yeah, thanks for letting me in you guys group, never knew about this one just the yahoo ones..

I have some in TX, you will need to get registered with the comptroller and pay a $200 general business license and pay $60 per machine for the tag. This is a yearly expense. As far as the locations go, those are find on your own and networking. IM me where you are, we can talk more about this.
