Nostalgic Zoltar Fortune Telling Machine


A tribute to vintage carnivals, arcades, and boardwalks, this model makes an impact bright, bold colors and graphics. The Nostalgic features a fully animated Zoltar® with talking, eye, head, and arm movement. The scalloped top trim and gold half dome is removable and fits inside the machine, making shipping and moving the machine through smaller spaces easier.


Zoltar’s hands and head are handcrafted and hand-painted by our artists to ensure the most realistic quality. This ornate cabinet is made of birch veneers. Once the cabinet is built, it is painted with bright red and blue crackle paint. Finishing touches like gold accents and eye-catching lettering are then added. Zoltar® is outfitted with a luxurious gold head wrap and shirt, topped with a detailed paisley vest and jewelry. He arrives with many trinkets such as statues, incense, coins, etc. to decorate the inside of his cabinet with.


The machine can be programmed to accept coins, tokens, or bills of any currency. Alternatively, the machine can be programmed with a push button for free play. Upon activation, Zoltar® begins to wave his hand over the illuminated LED ball, nod his head up and down, his mouth reacts to each syllable as he speaks your fortune, and then the machine dispenses a printed fortune.


Attract messages entice passerbys to approach and play the machine. The machine comes with four attract messages. The machine can be programmed to play an attract message every two or three minutes (or more). For an extra charge, a motion sensor can be installed to trigger the attract messages.


Zoltar® audio messages are available in English, Spanish or French, free of charge. Audio messages can be created in different languages for an extra cost. Printed fortune cards are available in English, Spanish, French, Greek, and Turkish. Custom fortune cards printed in any other language are available for an extra cost.
