Re: Sega "Bonanza Star" double jackpot

That's my only issue as I don't drive I've got to go on pics and the trusting of the seller. Have most of the people on the forum bought by auction? The only place really for buying them I've come across is Henry Powells. I've looked over eBay but if I'm looking wrong I can't really find any that lo...

Re: Sega "Bonanza Star" double jackpot

If your location is close to a member here, they may be willing to show you their collection and that may help you choose a certain model style over another and it may be an opportunity for you to see the complexity of the mechanics first hand. Good point... Is there any one in the Birmingham area ...

Re: Sega "Bonanza Star" double jackpot

There is a Mills Hi Top in black through Henry that is £799. Are slots a high price through Henry because of the full restoration etc? I've just bought a book from Amazon regarding prices inside machines etc. I think I best have a read first. Can slots play up more/jam if they are converted to play ...

Re: Sega "Bonanza Star" double jackpot

Another point, have you actually been and seen the machine? Normally Henry doesn't have them ready to go and does them after he gets the order I'm sure. It's ready to go, just needs 12volt led system fitted for reels and top box and would like it converted to 20p play. It's had bottom of machine an...

Re: Sega "Bonanza Star" double jackpot

The jp will refill as you play. All slot machines are worth what you are willing to pay, nothing else. For me, the machine you're looking at is in great condition but ordinary considering the very high price and not for me, but this is my view only. Justifying the cost really depends on why you wan...

Re: Sega "Bonanza Star" double jackpot

Thank you for your responses. It's nice to know it's been fully refurbished and re chromed and to know I won't have any issues with it is a bonus. I have seen them on auction sites that have already been sold for £450 but don't look anywhere as good as this one. Does the jackpot automatically refill...

Sega "Bonanza Star" double jackpot

I am new to the slot machines and a novice. I have found one that I like from Henry Powell Automatics. It's for a Sega "Bonanza Star" double jackpot fully refurbished. It's £890. This will be a very big investment for me. Would I be OK with this one and is it a good machine? Many thanks for your rep...
