Re: Why so many Jennings Governors....?

Wow! Thanks for the update Tammy. Where was this location and can you get me one for £25?

And by the way, the Morris jokes show that there is much humour and merriment in a lockdown situation although I thought alcohol was supposed to be served? !PUZZLED!

Re: Why so many Jennings Governors....?

Good point Treefrog, although probably late '60s, as they had big holes in them. The Jennings were so reliable so I don't think reliability or ageism saw them leave the stage early. Interesting to hear about the London gaffs using Mills and Aristocrats though. As you say Coppinpr, maybe it was just ...

Re: Bally Gay Cruise running on unusual coin

Perhaps a Bally thread could be started. I like the Phonographic 'Gold Award' conversions, but I also have a couple of Blue Stars, a Greaves 'Showman', a RIO and a couple of others. 'Sir Prize' and 'Bullseye' are on my want list. Like the idea Brigham but creating the thread is way beyond my pay gr...

Re: Tin Pan Alley

I remember vividly playing the exact machine that coppinpr has kindly posted an image of. Specifically it was in the Harrison's chain of arcades on Bognor Regis seafront next to Jones Garage. Ted Harrison also owned Clacton Pier and he had about eight of these Crompton Cakewalk pushers in the arcad...

Why so many Jennings Governors....?

I remember the 1970s when arcades were awash with one arm bandits. Most were Bally and Aristocrats, some Jubilee, a handful of Sega, and the token Jennings Governor in each arcade. I never saw a Mills bandit. So my question, if indeed it can be answered.... How come, proportionally speaking, I alway...

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

If I’m not mistaken, I know exactly what it is. It’s a Bryan’s Payramid. Too easy. :lol:

Re: Bally Gay Cruise running on unusual coin

No photos from me. It only took me about 10 years to find the Walton one. I’ll keep hunting. It would be good to set up a Bally Bandit list of U.K. machines. I reckon there would be quite a few we haven’t heard of and of course the many conversions.
