Man United special edition Sega bandit

Now here is something a bit different, I wonder what the history of this machine is. Can it be dated by the faces on the reel strips? Football is a mystery I have no interest in, so they are all unknown to me, (ah, just noticed it's the 50th-anniversary edition, so 1968 then?) https://www.ebay.co.uk...

Re: Future slot machine auctions poll

come on everybody, pitch in , this is clearly a "test the water" thread by BP to see if it "might" be worth putting an event together. you won't get the face to face auction you all say you want if 6 people say they have a machine to sell and 12 people say they might buy it dirtdog

Re: Elephant House Auctions

I don't think it should be my responsibility to attract sellers to an auction house, and I certainly don't want to pay for the privilege of doing so.

Is it authentic?

Topic moved & merged - Site Admin . This machine was one of the most expensive machines sold in the recent (new style) EH sales and, at first glance, I wasn't surprised. But when you take a closer look you must ask "is it original or just a later conversion"? Clearly, a very un BDR-li...
