  1. Interesting looking Reflex Scorp 5 adder machine https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Reflex-Gaming-Magnificent-7s-Video-Fruit-Machine-Cat-D-10p-play-5-Jackpot/163656769212?_trkparms=aid%3D888007%26algo%3DDISC.MBE%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20140328180637%26meid%3Dbf6cd7784fb048efbc311a9244e06e2e%26pid%3D100009%26rk%3D1%26rkt%3D1%26sd%3D223487701272%26itm%3D163656769212&_trksid=p2047675.c100009.m1982
  2. you could always rent one for the low cost of £1000 down and then £87 plus vat a week for 36 months Pay £13k charges and still not own the cabinet
  3. Probably find they are not sold to the operator but are rented, that way Blueprint can keep control over the usage of the cabinets. I know that some of the older cabs have ended up in Cashino arcades as a promotional machine
  4. The later games from Electrocoin using the old z80 board have a protection chip that is linked to the UART board and have a bespoke chip for each price of play/jackpot value. They are dual coloured with one colour being the jackpot and the smaller colour on the chip denotes price of play, for instance 25p play £25 jackpot machines have a white with a bit of green paint on the chip. I have seen around 12 different combinations of the colours. The phoenix software for later games has a less complex (but still unemulated) protection. The Concept phoenix games will run up to a point where they check for the SEC meter and then fail but they will run at half speed as the dev system that they used needed the processor replacing with one twice the speed just to get anything running.
  5. The reason I was asking about the club oxo roms is because I am working on a bar x type game with a top box feature and I wanted to find out if electrocoin used traditional bar x type sounds for the base game but jazzed it up sound wise for the top game. Sorry if I got anyones hope up that the would run on MFME. I know we have a system at work for phoenix that talks to a top box but not sure if it works the same as Electrocoins does but happy enough to pass it on to Chris if its any use to him. I don't think we used it for any games though, everything I did on phoenix was single player machines
  6. I've used zenpoint along with a cloud drive solution on a cheap linx 8 windows tablet with no issues at all, Software costs about £35 but I think its worth the money. Not sure about playing games direct from it though. I think the next build of Kodi is introducing that as standard and I think that can do jukebox as well
  7. cheers, will give them a go
  8. Does anyone have the topbox sound software for any of the Electrocoin 3 player phoenix based games like Bar X OXO reels or similar? Cheers

    Jackpot Percentages

    on the machines I have written the jackpots account for between 15 and 20% of the total wins for the machine. For the AWP market you need to balance the games to give the player a feeling they have had some entertainment for the money they have spent so this is the reason why you get the smaller wins a lot more often to keep them in the game. Club machines are probably in the 5-10% range

    The Vault

    I remember some crazy man doing 7 dx layouts in a week. All of them would be considered sub standard now but it’s doable

    Nudge Nudge

    The patent expired about 20 years ago. I think it was only valid for 15 years. Nobody I know of has paid a royalty for years and there has been no text saying about the nudge patent for years either
  12. as long as it has the disclaimer saying there may be times the game offers little or no chance of a win then I guess they can do that and even take a credit in the process of saying lose. Your average player wont know the rules regarding the number of jackpot repeats that can be offered
  13. my guess would be these are internal use and given to staff for subsidised food in the factory canteen or something. A bit like the old luncheon vouchers that employees used to give out. All we need is an ex Bell Fruit staff member from the early 70s
