Circus Circus has expanded on its status as the only Strip casino still offering coin-operated slot machines by installing $5 coin machines to go alongside its $1 machines.

The slots are a throwback to vintage Las Vegas, when customers inserted coins in the machines and got coins back. Now almost every casino slot machine pays out winnings with a paper slip to be taken to a cashier or terminal. Circus Circus’ coin-operated machines offer 97.4 percent payback, the casino said in a release.

Also, The Big Chill Daiquiri Bar has opened next to Circus Circus at the entrance of Slots A Fun. Big Chill offers daiquiris, $10 frozen beer and specialty glassware for frozen drinks.
