Word Game of the Day

I was reading through some lectures from 1955 when I came across a curious word, one that I’d never seen before. I couldn’t even puzzle it out from the context and so was sent running for the (online) dictionary.

Now I’m wondering if many people don’t know the word (there is hardly a reason to use it anymore) or if I just missed out on it back when I was learning my SAT vocab cards. Given its tangential relation to the AOSHQ lifestyle, I thought I’d ask you guys to put some learnin’ to me.

The word is totalisator. What is it? Have you used one? Have you even seen one? Are they still around?

No Googling!
