Once relegated to gambling-equipment museums, the penny slot machine is back with a vengeance in Nevada.

Video-based gaming machines began to permeate casino floors in the 1980s, with color graphics, unique themes and large cash jackpots.

But technological advances, which let slot machines increase the number of ways to win and ushered in cashless gambling, better known as ticket in-ticket out, made penny slots more practical.
