When a poker machine becomes outdated and they are removed off the floor, what do they do with them? I know some are sold in stores and on line, but some just seem to disappear forever. There are a few that I have been looking for, (Sneek Peek, and Pick a Hand (not pic-a-pair) that I just can't seem to find.

Many are sold overseas I've heard. Some are sold to the smaller casinos that don't like to spend as much for their machines. I would suspect some end up crushed. It would make sense for the manufacturers to have a buy-back program to improve new machine sales.

Buy backs indicate slow business.  Gambling worldwide is NOT SLOW

  Why would buy backs indicate slow business? Don't automakers have a buy back system in place now, called leasing?
