  1. I really didn't mind tokens, in Blackpool tokens were tied to the brewery, so if you won in say a Scottish & Newcastle pub, all tokens would work in their pubs, that is Blackpool used to have loads of pubs. Also during the £4.80 days, pubs used to have 7 heaven/ Cloud 999/ Blue Moons and when they streaked you could usually recycle and and get money back plus more tokens, again this was in Blackpool where in the season, machines were very well played, so my memories of tokens and lower jackpots were good, and was the only time I used to make some money. BUT I like yourself and many more lost thousands in the long run.
  2. Great video, loved this game, they used to be in a few pubs in Blackpool, used to be great for beer tokens haha. I also seem to remember a very similar game, same cab with a cashpot, but instead of repeats, used to hold for fun, especially mixed 7s, where after a nudge, instead of holding, let em spin and jackpot would roll in., and usually hold.

    80's arcade games

    Living in Blackpool, seen so many, Gorf in the swimming pool café, like Pook says , Dragon Lair was real!! Space Harrier and Out run sit down cabs. also lots of memories of playing 1942 in Funland before it burnt down, BUT Star Wars (sit down) in Mr B's arcade, PBB was the Hi Score all time.
  8. Great video there, I found the scene just too late for those shenanigans , during the fruit forum latter days.
  9. The difference is, now days its big money , 70 or 100 jackpot,if a machine has been emptied, or 'done' then there is no enjoyment for the casual punter.
  10. This is why the fruities are on their arse, manufacturers let this happen, similar thing on a flicker, put 40 thru, jackpot, joke. should have learnt 1st time, but released more, same coding vulnerable.

    Las Vegas

    Sounds a blast, i will go down freemont street as to me thats the the original Las Vegas!!! I also would like to visit the neon museum which I think houses all the old signage from yesteryear. Oh and a visit to see Chumlee at the old silver and gold pawn shop from the Pawn Stars series.

    Las Vegas

    looks amazing. I am hoping to go next August for a week, stay on the strip and have a budget, my mate is taking $3500 Dollers, I will not take that much, poss around $1000 - $1500. Did you play any table games Reg, I fancy a go at the Poker whilst I am there!! Pete
  13. Thats a great read Nemo, wish I had the space to do something like this as Pinball emulation looks like the real thing!!
  14. Bookmaker FOBT terminals are not linked, each game is individual, I have seen jackpots won on 3 separate games in one session, on same terminal.
  15. Hi Reg Yeah the reviews were always fun to read, plus gave us non designers an insight in how much work actually goes into producing these amazing layouts. Peter
