Re: Where have all the slots gone?

Thanks for the advice clubconsoles but sadly I did go down that route before applying for a permit and within 3 days eBay not only pulled the item off but threatened me that if I did it again my account would be suspended :tut .

Re: Where have all the slots gone?

Just a word of caution for anyone thinking of applying for a single machine permit from the Gambling Commission so that eBay will allow them to list an Allwin - don't hold your breath! I applied in September and, several emails and phone calls later, am still waiting. Latest is it's awaiting sign-of...

Re: Pilwin Restoration

OK - Silly question time - I've managed to convert the Pilwin 56 back to its original old penny payout (with many thanks to Lenny at Retro !!THUMBSX2!! ) instead of the (to me) cheap feel of the new penny it had been converted to, and thought I had finished, then I realised, having set it with the s...

Re: Pilwin Restoration

I acquired a Pilwin 56 last year and have just got round to looking at bringing it back to life. The backflash was beyond repair so have had to replace that but otherwise all fittings seem to be original apart from a conversion at some time in the past to new pence - shame, as the original 1d slot i...

Re: R&W Wrigley's Chewing Gum allwin identified

Came across this old post while I was looking for examples of this machine. Reason was that I picked one up at the EH auction last year as pic attached (note the extra top flash) and have been trying to establish what original colours were on the backflash as it looks a bit faded.

Re: Time to ........

Having self-isolated myself due to my advancing years I decided it is time to clean all the dust out of my long abandoned Bryan's Five Win.

Got bored......
