Collectors can take a gamble in Vegas

We've already shown how gambling chips can score a jackpot on the collectors' markets - sometimes up to values of $1m.

Now, Peter Sidlow and Pat MacGuire's Victorian Casino Antique Auction promises a wealth on treasures related to Las Vegas' favourite pastime.

It is scheduled for March 12-14.

Highlights in the sale include this Five Cent Watling Rol-A-Top Bird of Paradise Slot Machine, with all its keys intact and a 'twin jackpot' feature.

For sale: a Five Cent Watling Rol-A-Top Bird of Paradise Slot Machine

The seller isn't taking a gamble on this one, auctioning it with a wide estimate of $1,400 -14,000.

A restored Wurlitzer Model 750 Jukebox, estimated at $2,400-24,000 will also feature among the lots.

The sale will be held by auctioneer VCA in, appropriately enough, the casino Mecca of Las Vegas. Live online bidding will be available.
