Re: 2p or not 2p

Interesting. I’ll ask a local operator and update this thread and the machines in and around the Clacton area were converted back.

Re: 2p or not 2p

Indeed but why aren’t they all on 5p or 10p play? 🤔

2p or not 2p

I’ve noticed that nearly all slot machines old and new are working on 2p these days. 10 years ago, most were on 5 or 10p. I’m guessing that the cost of a licence has changed. How can an operator make any money on 2p machines?

Re: Job lot at auction

I’m always interested in the provenance of the machines. Does anyone know if these were previously owned by a collector or whether they’re arcade ex-stock. 🤔

Re: Elephant House Auctions

Agreed. It’s been dropping year on year with preference for later machines which are now some of the most sought after. Times are a changing. I wonder what we will be saying in another 20 years.... or sooner.

Re: Opportunity of the decade coming

Thanks anyway BP. Junior, we should have teamed up. If you could walk on your right leg and me with the left, just imagine what we could have achieved. !!IDEA!!
