Fortune Wheel / Wheel of Fortune DX - Project - Proconn

Oh so basically you can modify the .gam file to open a series of machines.  I guess if you have created them in similar dimensions.   So you could potentially open a few up as most people use there monitors in horizontal mode, there is plenty of pixel space.

Just run up as many machines as you want, then do a Alt L to link them, then every time you load up the one that you did the linking on, it will start them all up.

No need to faff around with the .gam files.

These look great.  I played the £4.80 sampled version many times.  I also remember those chunky £1 tokens, Similar size to the £2 coin.  They were a bit of a pain since you could only put them back in WOF or Crazy Payes, the arcades I used would not swap them for 20p tokens.  One arcade I used did have about 6 WOFs but another arcade only had one WOF and 1 Crazy Pays.  The arcade which just had the two machines in eventually swapped out the £1 tokens for 20p only tokens.  The up side of the £1 tokens was that they could really streak up to £50/£60 at a time where as the 20p only ones did not streak so well. 

Did someone say we have the £1 token roms available?  That would be interesting to see.

Looking forward to this release.

Yeah, these tokens were a fad and a bit of a rip off, especially if you played in an arcade with only a small number of Project Coin machines that took them.   I remember being in an arcade in the Chapel St Leonards area (nr Skegness), an arcade called 'Little John's', was a decent arcade back in the early 90's.  They had a load of Project Coin machines but literally only two that dispensed the £1 super tokens.   Wheel of Fortune and Rags to Riches.  There was literally no real point in playing them.   I remember I got the streak from WOF then went on to Rags with my tokens, what I should have done was go on Rags first as that is all about the token holds, then played WoF with the tokens and if I hit the streak just take all cash wins rather than tokens.

Ah, was the other machine Rags to Riches that took those tokens?  I only remember two ever taking them.  Presumable they were not very popular as from what I remember, they were withdrawn and no one else tried them. 

Sorry, I keep calling it Wheel of Fortune when it is Fortune Wheel.  There's an MPU3 which goes by the name of Wheel Of Fortune, think it was a VPS rebuild of something and there's the video casino game.

This Project Coin was called Wheel of Fortune, there was a glass update with the name becoming Fortune Wheel.

Couple of old Project Coin machines here, essentially the same machine but using slightly different roms with different sound packages and button layouts. Some confusing over what roms go with what sound and what each was called.

you cant beat the old project machines if you caught them at the right time you were quids in especially as some of the pubs round ours changed the tokens
