one-arm bandit

(redirected from one arm bandit)

one-arm bandit

A slot machine designed for gambling in which you pull down a lever on one side that generates a random combination of three shapes, which may or may not award the player money depending on the combination received. After my wife lost her entire month's wages to the one-arm bandits in Atlantic City, we've decided to stay away from casinos altogether.
