Slot-O-Rama '74

Sounds like a wild, old-school adult film from 1974, but actually it was just one of many Las Vegas jackpot postcard ads promising big cash prizes-- made even more tantalizing by the thought of beautifully bare, 70's showgirls playing with lots 'n lots of dirty money! Man, with all of those instant winnings, you could totally splurge yourself silly with a gourmet dining feast at the Aladdin's Sabre Room, or catch a real eyeful of gyrating lady action with Barry Ashton's "This Is Burelesque" at the Bagdad Theatre... umm, among other things.

Slot-O-Rama is what The Bunny Ranch was originally called.

I love the crazy Slot-o-rama font.

Page 3, woman in the middle, looks a bit like Tempest Storm. I doubt that's her, but if it isn't, I'll be my slot-o-rama winnings that the woman probably did a Tempest Storm tribute act.

Wow, all you gotta do to win cash at the Aladdin is to, er, win cash at the Aladdin. Winning the cash automatically puts you in the running for the cash prize, see. There's finally some real incentive to win that jackpot.

Okay, okay, I get that this is probably a tactic designed to redistribute casino clientele into time slots less popular with gamblers. And also to keep people there later than usual, leading to more drinks, leading to more gambling, leading to more money for the house. If they wanted to make even more money, they'd sell me a t-shirt with that cover image.
