Re: 50 years today

Going back to decimalisation, I had stopped playing the slots by that time (starting new job got in the way :( ) so was only used to the old penny machines. What happened with the changeover? Did the operators immediately convert their machines to take new pence in which case any punters putting the...

Re: 50 years today

Decimalisation certainly greatly contributed to inflation, largely because of the trick of continuing to use the Penny as a unit of currency. In the old pound there were 240 pennies to the pound but with decimalisation the powers that be changed this to a handy 100 new pence. So immediately 1new pen...

Re: Mills Cherry?

OK -well I have a few more pics of the one up for auction at Wotton and I think I'll give it a miss as it looks like too much work and I don't trust that I could do it justice but in case it's of interest to any other forum members I've attached the pics. The report says "Will need recommission...

Mills Cherry?

I don't have experience of Bandits (apart from a Jubilee Rivierra I once bought) as I normally dabble with Allwins, but I saw this one coming up on a local auction and wondered if it was worth a gamble.
