Shipping Information

Shipping Rates

Gambler’s Oasis has negotiated low shipping rates, and we pass those discounts on to you!

Unlike others in the business, when you place your order online with Gambler’s Oasis, you immediately will know your shipping cost as soon as you enter your zip code in the checkout cart. Our slot machine shipping prices include residential delivery with a truck equipped with lift gate. If you would like your slot machine shipped to a business address with a dock or forklift, give us a call as it will save about $70 off the shipping cost. The same is true if the shipment is picked up at nearby freight terminal.

We ask that if you plan to purchase four slot machines or more to please give us a call because most times we can get the rate much lower. Our automated system will give you the exact shipping rate on up to three slot machines and other products.

Gambler’s Oasis does not have added crating fees! The world class packaging is included in our prices.!

We strive to ship your order as quickly as our staff can properly complete the refurbishment of the machine (approximate timeline it noted with each product), and will provide a tracking number for your shipment. All shipments include insurance.

Our preferred shipping partner is R&L Carriers, Southeastern Freight and FedEx for slot machines. We have negotiated rates for most premium freight carriers and pass those negotiated rates onto you. FedEx, UPS, and the US Postal Service are used for small orders.

Customers who live within 35 miles of Cincinnati are eligible for our free delivery and set-up with the purchase of a slot machine and stand. (Delivery does not apply to Indiana due to state laws). Please call for details.

For international shipments and alternate shipping services such as overnight, please give us a call.

You are always welcome to pick up your order too!

Please call or e-mail us if you have any questions.

Thank You for Your Order!!!

Packaging Information

Gambler’s Oasis wants your slot machine to arrive just the way it left our shop. In order to accomplish a successful shipment, it must begin with great packaging!

Slot machines are large and heavy. Many components of the slot machine are fragile including the glass. Our packaging begins with a specially designed, custom manufactured shipping carton that will protect your slot machine from the perils of shipment. Below illustrates how your slot machine will be packaged for shipment.

After the slot machine has passed a final quality check, it is positioned in front of a pallet so the packaging process can begin.

The top, center and belly glass are secured, and then the entire slot machine is wrapped with multiple layers of heavy bubble wrap.

Next the shrink wrapping film tightly secures the packaging materials together to protect the machine.

The slot machine is now placed on the bottom base of the shipping carton on a pallet.

Finally the top portion of the custom-made shipping carton is lowered securely into place. The top of the carton is closed and sealed. Heavy banding is used to tightly strap and secure the carton to a pallet, and the forklift moves the machine up to the back of the truck for shipment.

If a slot machine and stand are purchased together, this how the shipment is packaged and ready for the freight carrier to pick up.

The pallet is carefully loaded onto the truck for shipment and is strapped in securely to prevent movement during shipping.

When your slot machine is delivered to a residential address, the truck will be equipped with a lift gate to lower your slot machine (and stand) to the ground. The two photographs below were sent to us by one of our customers so you can see what to expect when the truck arrives.

A special thanks to John in Springfield for sharing these delivery photos!

Competitor's Shipping

We pride our thorough shipping packaging and can honestly say that we have NEVER had a freight damage claim in over nine years!

One day to our great surprise, a competitor's slot machine was in the truck that arrived to pick up our shipment. The machine was bubble wrapped and shrink wrapped and banded straight to the pallet with no boxing and no protection. Look at the machine toward the back of the trailer, and then look to our boxed package shipment. As the saying goes, a picture is worth a thousand words.....How do you want your machine shipped?

Packaging For Large and Unique Machines

Our custom made shipping cartons will fit most machine types. However there are some larger machines such as a Bally Monte Carlo that are much too large to fit in our custom made cartons.

In this case, we literally packaged the machine in the same manner and build the shipping carton around the machine. The photos below illustrate one of our past shipments of two Bally Monte Carlo Cash Wheels.
