Justin Sellers / The Natchez Democrat — R.W. Delaney, of R.W. Delaney Construction Company, uses an excavator to destroy six years worth of decommissioned slot machines outside the Isle of Capri Casino’s warehouse on Canal Street Wednesday. The machines, which are replaced by new and updated models every few years, have to be decommissioned by the Mississippi Gaming Commission before being crushed. One hundred forty-two machines were crushed.
