Lucky Coin Machine Company
Since it’s founding in New Orleans, LA in 1945 by Robert E. “Bob” and Myrtis “Jeri” Nims, Lucky Coin Machine Company has been dedicated to giving our customers quality service and the best equipment available. In 1999, the Nims sold the Company to Dennis Georges, Gerald Pelias, and John Georges who continued to make available to our customers the industry’s most efficient and innovative equipment to fulfill the rich promises of amusement, video gaming, music, and novelty equipment. After the passing of Dennis Georges and Gerald Pelias, Gabe Corchiani purchased ownership in the Company and became partners with John Georges in 2006. Together they have kept Lucky Coin at the forefront of the industry and the largest gaming & amusement Operator in South Louisiana. From its inception until today, Lucky Coin has placed heavy emphasis on excellent service to customers which include, bars, restaurants, hotels, truck stops, marina’s, & skating rinks to name a few. Lucky Coin is currently operating video poker and amusement devices in locations throughout South Louisiana.
Lucky Coin leads our industry in technological advances, providing to our customers the most innovated and cutting edge equipment available in the amusement and gaming industry. In the words of founder, Bob Nims, “Our product is no better than the overall service we render to our customers every day; we recognize fully that our customers are an extension of our image with the general public.” Lucky Coin believes the concept that “service” means fulfilling the needs of the customer, and that this service is carried out in an aggressive and competent manner.
With each department manager having 20 years experience in the industry, it shows the dedication, knowledge, and drive our employees have to work diligently together to achieve success for our customers and our Company.
