You can't beat them thangs !! I use to fool with em years ago. I enjoyed it pretty much, watching the scores on the weekends ! Alot of fun for a dollar or 2 ! Like Sinclair says though, the machines against the wall took their place apparently ! Most folks on here proably nver heard of a parlay card !

Never heard of them,first for me,,,,
 
A few of the kids used to run them when I was in grade school and high school. Mid and late 70’s. Never hit one.

And a coworker, early/mid 90’s. I didn’t get any better at it.

Living in a town partially built on it, I figure I would be worse at it now, and don’t even try.

I played them, played the game boards, and punch boards also
 
Been a couple years since I played one. Buddy used to pick 'em up at his barber shop! Enjoyed the challenge! Yale was always a good pick whether they won or lost!

When i was 10-12 yrs old me and my dad and one of his friends would go deer hunting then they would drop by this guys house and pick up or turn in their cards lol
 
We used to have the punchboards here, but I don't remember the cards.

Oh yeah. Somebody made a lot of money with those things. Rarely remember anyone winning. Myself included
 
VFW, Blakely, Ga. circa 1977.
Had to have a membership card to get in the door.
Slot machine just inside to the left of the door.
Stuck a quarter in it every time I walked in.
Hit the jackpot one Friday evening, paid $45.
Bartender then informed me winner had to buy a round for the house.
Place was packed on a Friday evening.
Cost me $37 out of pocket to hit the jackpot.
Never plugged another quarter in to that piece of carp.

Played golf with a printer that ran his on parley cards , he made a lot of money very Sunday morning , but they were fun way to gamble , the state of ga. should start running them .
 
I used to play them every week. Hit a streak one time and won 4 weeks straight. Decided I was money ahead and stopped for a week or so and the guy wouldn't let me play anymore. Lol. It's was pure luck anyway.
