Remember the Lucky Stash Slot Machine? When it first came out, many players burned their precious Reward Points on to it. Spin a few times with the 3 Reward Points option and just a blink of eye, they are all gone. The Slot Machine seemed to be really popular when it first came out, as many players were aiming for that Jackpot reward, only a few out of all Mafia Wars players had a chance to jump out of their seat happily knowing they had won the Jackpot reward.
Today, Zynga placed up a banner within the Social Module section, in which the banner states "SLOT MACHINE SHUTDOWN". Who knows what they are deciding to do after the removal of Slot Machine. I do not spend Reward Points on it, but i'm spinning it 4 times per day with the Free Spins and i'm happy with it. The remaining time before Lucky Stash is removed: 6 Days and 22 Hours.
According to the banner, your chances and rewards are doubled for the the remaining days before the Slot Machine is removed. I could see a slight difference in the amount of wins you make, and all rewards off the Bonus Meter feature are given out in 2x now.
The Lucky Stash Slot Machine rewards were also updated today. The items are deemed useless to VIP players, though.
