Gertrude slots

Gertrude Tannen plays the slots.

A slot machine, also known as fruit machine, puggy, the slots, poker machine, pokies, one-armed bandits, or simply slot is a gambling machine where three or more reels spin when a button is pushed, or a lever is pulled.

Biff Tannen would transport his grandmother, Gertrude Tannen, to Las Vegas, Nevada in his car so she could play the slots, and she would insult him while he was driving.

In 1955, in an alternate timeline, Biff received a sports almanac detailing fifty years of sports statistics from his older self. Since he was only seventeen, he couldn't bet, so he gave money to his grandmother to bet on the Chicago Bears. She didn't bet on the Bears, and lost, making Biff twenty dollars poorer. Biff told her to make another bet, on the Washington Redskins. However, she only gave Biff back his twenty dollars, and kept the rest for himself. When Gertrude claimed Biff was as greedy as his father, Biff stated that he learned that from her.
