Re: Coin operated petrol pumps

I've never understood the petrolelole'oleum industry. We pay so much in the UK for it, but have you noticed how it doesn't matter where they open a new filling station they always strike petrol? So much of it at times you sometimes see road tankers pulling in to carry it away. Rip off UK! BP !!GRUM...

Re: Aristocrat

Well the Aristo thread popularity might be due to the fact they come up more regularly for sale than other slots and are actually affordable right now; particularly good entry machines for first purchases. We generally tell folk when they ask on here about what first bandit they should buy; an Arist...

Re: Riviera OXO approximate price please

I don't think they are so popular with us guys, most are Powell's conversions. I've owned two good ones, a Riviera OXO and an Aristocrat Esprit OXO, both Powell conversions which were traded to me from a working amusement arcade in Pagham in exchange for two Ballys. The third, another Riviera, was q...

Re: Unusual Aristocrat Olympic four reeler

The Grosvenor would have been a hand pay for jackpots with the 23 win paid by the stack. So coin slide stack not much higher than a regular 18 pay stack.

Re: Aristocrat Clubmaster

Be influenced by what moves you - if you want a light get one. A small battery LED light with sticky pads and hide away inside over reels, they last for ages on batteries.

Re: Sega Progressive Star coin meter

There has to be a way to reset that. So, if by chance it hit 9999 and jackpot happens that is 2 and a half quid plus 249 quid old money hand pay, a small fortune in the day. No doubt the owners would regularly nobble this cause quite a risky payout for them. Also having a guess, i think this machine...
