Sega Jackpot Mechanism

Dear fellow coin-op addicts, has anybody got a Sega bandit with a jackpot? I was wondering if anybody could get me a photo of the mechanism, how it is attached to the main internals and how the jackpot payout slide is attached? Secondly, if anybody is breaking an old Sega or has a jackpot mechanism ...

Re: Ascot slot

A Swedish crown too - according to Wikipedia this is about 1/2 mill bigger than the UK new ten pence piece so likely to work a treat over here in the UK. I like your machine a lot, it's quirky and although I'm fairly new to this game I can see various elements of it from so many other makes. How eas...

Re: Ascot slot

What a dreadful looking machine, I'll give you a £100 for it ;) Well, it has an extremely clean looking mechanism. I like the green frame :cool: . What coinage are you running it on? What's the purpose of the transformers? Lighting? Has one had a bit of a burnout, it looks blackened in the photo, mo...

Re: museums & collections

Welcome, thats a nice machine and a good descriptive of your time as a youngster. Sounded like mine, a mispent youth allured by the lights, clunks and whirls and pennies flying out. My allowance was 2 shillings a week, or 10 new pence. I used to start off at the arcade on the coin pushers, wait for ...

Re: Conversion to Euros

Thanks for that info pennymachines, that's really interesting. :cool: Would you say then, that machines running on 6d were or are more common than a bandit running on an old 1d coin, say? Did any bandits run on an old half penny, silver 3d, or even smaller, the farthing??

Re: Conversion to Euros

I thought about the 3d coin and so far haven't seen a bandit on fleabay for sale on 3d (and I've been looking for a couple of years). Do you think the 3d isn't popular from the point of view that people do like to use their old bandits as a money box on new currency? Both my bandits, the Jubilee and...

Re: Conversion to Euros

A Euro is very thick in depth, I cannot think of any old UK denomination coin that comes close to the thickness of a Euro. You would get away with running a 2 cent coin on a Jubilee mk1 on 6d, without having to hack the machine but payouts would be incorrect. Just stick a bit of card / (vinylays bet...
