    Just sold a game today and buyer used the term Slush Fund. That happens to be the same term I utilize when I have NO intention of my wife finding out. I was wondering does anyone else use this term or maybe another???

    Usually in reference to monetary political dishonesty. Not pinball.

    It's not just you! The phrase started life as a nautical term related to leftover bacon fat: https://www.merriam-webster.com/wordplay/the-appetizing-origins-of-slush-fund

    I have always thought of slush fund to refer to money you have set aside to waste on something you can live without like a pinball machine.
