Re: Time to ........

A 'Flasher' is a generic term for a type of gaming machine that displays the symbols using flashing lights rather than rotating drums, discs &c..

Re: First machine

I assume the comment relates to new coinage, if so, the funny thing is how many times I have sold machines to people who want a machine only on current coinage, not coins they don’t possess, so mixed market...... I don't go in for 'up-cycling', not in cars, not in vintage radio, and certainly not i...

Brigham, it was like that and saved having to change the award cards, marquee, coin chute, escalator and payout slides. I like an easy life.
