Re: Fremont Hotel Mills High Top

... machine and a clone of a Mills machine and came at the end of the mechanical era. The machine is unlikely to have ever seen the inside of the Fremont I'm afraid. It’s in good condition and has all the bits that are often missing (back door, mills style escalator, mills style jackpot unit, ...

Re: Fremont Hotel Mills High Top

I'm learning as we go, so thanks for the patience. There are lemons on the reels, but not the paytables. Normal? I had naively assumed lemons and melons were on there as blanks, not as transplants. A weird situation arises when plum-lemon-plum arrives in the window of the 1st reel - it pays 2 coins ...

Re: Fremont Hotel Mills High Top

as many of you know,I make a lot of replacement reel strips (around 100 sets per year now) and I have a huge database of symbols (more than 30 different bells for example) and the symbols on this machine are a bit odd, the bells are not typical of any mills machines, the cherries are Jennings, the m...

Re: Fremont Hotel Mills High Top

- is that because I described it as "good" or is there something you see that makes it clearly imperfect? you did say it does not payout correctly and has melons on the reels but not on the payouts, mechanically it looks great,it just needs sorting out a bit. as to taking out the mech, th...

Re: Fremont Hotel Mills High Top

Looking at the pay out disc for reel one, can anybody else see additional deep grooves as per Gold Award pay outs? I believe I can. If so, has anyone seen a Hi-top with Gold Award? I haven't. So, with melons where there shouldn't be, a confusion of denominator and my cloudy/watery eyes convinced it ...

Re: Fremont Hotel Mills High Top

the fact it's not in perfect working order is a downside. Just curious - is that because I described it as "good" or is there something you see that makes it clearly imperfect? It works smoothly with no obvious faults, but I have no knowledge of the standard of any other machines to compa...

Re: Fremont Hotel Mills High Top

Thanks for the intel and the interest everyone. Even if I don't get around to selling it, as it has genuinely been in the family for well over 40 years, I'm very interested in any info anyone can add - authenticity, history, the lot, so thanks to all. Some more photos, but as you can probably deduce...

Re: Fremont Hotel Mills High Top

Of course the case may be original with a different mech; which is further suggested by the fact it's showing melons on the reels but not on the award card.
or the other, perhaps more likely option, the case and mech are original and the banner and award card have been added :!?!:

Re: Fremont Hotel Mills High Top

I've seen the Fremont top banner before but not the engraved award card, that is a nice touch, regardless of if it was ever in the Fremont I think the branding would increase the value a little, especially if it has been in the family ...
