Re: Anyone had tokens made for machines?

Wasn't it the case that some operators issued tokens from behind the bar and asked the player what value they wanted to play at then trade back winnings at the value staked? So play at 1d, 6d a shilling?!?!

Re: Silver Jubilee - strange payout?

Ive just seen your photos and the slots under the coin to jackpot chute looks like its already been modified? I suspect to allow 1p coin at some point in its life.

Re: Silver Jubilee - strange payout?

Nice find of 6p coins! As the owner of this exact machine (my first bandit i ever bought) I can tell you that your payouts are completely normal; the mystery payout are the combinations already stated. I also think orange melon bar also pays. The lemons, yep, to prevent a win as is the same with ma...

Re: What the dickins is happening?

Maybe a prime example of shill bidding, pushing up the end price then retraction?

Re: Looking forward....

As a key worker I returned to work two weeks after lockdown, having been very ill two weeks before, with all the symptoms; of course they wouldn't test me, I had to isolate. Goodness, Malcymal. What a horrible experience. I cannot understand why your Doctor could not get you tested for the virus? Y...

Re: Looking forward....

Cool Malc Thanks for your kind words earlier Aristomatic. I'd certainly like to know more about the curious auction too! I notice that green shield stamp paying machines were mentioned. I remember playing on of them on the Isle of Wight. A very high standing machine where the stamps came out of the...

Re: The future of our hobby and collaboration

I have noticed many reproduction flyers for slots appearing on ebay; things that people might want to place in picture frame. Maybe as the originator you could place a watermark or something on the literature so it's of no use to somebody trying to exploit it. For established members on here, maybe ...

Re: Looking forward....

I'd rather be in an auction room with all you guys on here because there is a trust and mutual respect of each other. We are all sensible rationale people. It's far better than being bumped into by ignorant selfish strangers in supermarkets who don't follow the floor markings and don't give a flying...

Re: Looking forward....

Well, lockdown over, it is and it isn't. I guess it depends on your mindset and risk to yourself and others about whether you take the plunge and think it's back to normal. So it's your decision if it's really over; my mum is shielding and she's been advised in a few weeks time she can go out. She h...
