An arcade cabinet is a machine casing that houses the various parts that make up an arcade game machine, the primary element being the motherboard on which the game's program runs. Arcade cabinets usually consist of a monitor and a control panel, with a coin slot on the front below the control panel for inserting credits. Marquees as well as bevel and side panel art make the finishing touches for advertising the game the machine is running.
