Amusement tokens

Amusement tokens were distributed through slot machines and other automated equipment. The machines were a form of gambling but because they dispensed tokens or prizes instead of cash, owners and operators were able to evade the law. If a token had been used to activate a machine, often the prize was only more tokens.
