Re: Tin Pan Alley

Yes '70s for sure as the artwork is clearly featuring the Black and White Minstrel show which was by far the most popular show on TV between 1958 and 1976 but wasn't known for its lavish costume until shown in colour from 1969. By 1976 it was starting to get a bad name for racism which might be the ...

Re: Bally "High Boy" Console on Ebay

Yes,I guessed it was not original. Does give you a good idea of what it looked like in its day. That price not good though. When I see a machine looking like this it always occurs to me that they would still get played in a pub or club today, but then I'm biased. Tell me if you saw these three Jenni...

1959 twist on on the old general store punch board

I came across this trade stimulator punch card (un used) on ebay USA. An unusual twist on the old "punch board", IF you can understand how it worked. I've read it twice and I THINK I know how it operated, what do others think? !PUZZLED! :lol:

Re: Aristocrat Clubmaster

on the first star wheel (I pronounced it incorrectly). No, you did not pronounce it incorrectly, star wheels and payout discs are different things. Tom was referring to two possible different ways to change payouts. On your machine two holes in the payout disc have been plugged so as to remove two ...

Re: Jennings Governor 'win percent' rate question...

Just to make it even more random, Mills jackpots were adjustable as to the number of coins they hold, giving the operator another way to increase the profits. :!?!:

Re: Mills Futurity - A cheating Mills Bandit?

There is one thing that confuses this issue... Mills made a set of cams for the 10 stop (20 symbol) machines that the operator could change to adjust the payouts, probably used in much the same way as modern slots are key operated to offer bigger payouts on certain days (never play slots on cruise s...

For example, a machine might take every tenth coin played and put it in the jackpot. In that case, one would just subtract 10% from the machine's percentage I don't think that is quite right. Any coin going into the jackpot is "still in play" in the same way a coin dropping into the coin payout tub...

Re: Reel Strip Question

...while I have found near-matches in the former, neither has yielded an exact match to what I'm looking for. If it's an exact match to all three reel strips that you are looking for, I don't think you will find it... not quite. The nearest I can find are (reel 1) SP1= CC-236-2 (reel 2) SP2 = CC-23...
