Re: Sparing a thought for the amusement arcade owners

Not heard from Jerry, but he had mentioned on here this year may have been the last... Yes, it was my intention to close at the end of September, as the lease is up for renewal end of next March. However, as it is unlikely that I would be able to open at all this year, I've made the decision to sta...

Re: Star Warehouse, Camden Market

Jimmy leased a small square single room building with ladder up to an open attic above right next to the archway where everyone had to pass by to enter the market at Camden Lock. It was a bottle neck outside his door and had huge footfall. I sold him a Cat and Mouse SWP (skill with prize) machine wh...

Re: My thing with slots

Jimmy Broderick was a real character, if he didn't want to sell you a particular machine, and you asked the price, he'd say "Oh that's not for you, thats way up here ( and held one arm right up in the air)" to emphasise just how much out of your price range availability he thought it was!

Re: Have you seen what we mustn't talk about?

Nobles have some big storage warehouses up there. They used to be packed full of all kinds of amusement machines and used to have periodic clearance sales advertised out of Coin Slot that I went to, row after row of good stuff they'd operated.

Re: Dozer pusher

The 'lost hole' is very cleverly disguised by the name plate overhanging the play field right at the front. Underneath that is a little flap that periodically raises and lowers to pinch overhanging pennies allowing them to fall down into the cashbox. It does it without raising any suspicion at all, ...
