Re: Roto-Pool, Roto-Fruit, Rotolite, Electrodart, Bingola, etc.

Hi coppinpr, Thanks for your suggestion - I did try connecting the wire to that tag, but it made no difference - that's why the solder looks so fresh. Also, the blue wire, when connected to that tag, is very much longer than the other linking blue wires, which makes me think it belongs somewhere in ...

Re: Roto-Pool, Roto-Fruit, Rotolite, Electrodart, Bingola, etc.

aa.jpg After much cleaning and some re-soldering of bad joints, I now have the Roto-Pool machine working well - BUT, one thing has stopped me crossing the finishing line - a blue wire has broken off the right-hand uniselector, and I have absolutely no idea where it should connect to (see photo).

Re: Roto-Pool, Roto-Fruit, Rotolite, Electrodart, Bingola, etc.

I have a Roto-Pool in for repair (the 2D-4D-6D payout version), and have got it working again by re-soldering some bad joints, cleaning all the contacts and switches, replacing bulbs and cleaning the sockets, etc. It now works well, with one exception - the payouts are rather strange. I get payouts ...

Re: Remember this multiplayer game with unusual playfield?

Aha so that's what it's called - presumably because a bell rang when you won!

Thanks for that, it is much appreciated.

Re: Remember this multiplayer game with unusual playfield?

There is a Whittaker's machine called "Monte Carlo Rally" on which you bet on European destinations which light up during play - could it be a variation of this?

Re: Remember this multiplayer game with unusual playfield?

I don't think we had a World Flight machine in any of the arcades on our coastal resorts (Yarmouth, Hemsby, Lowestoft, etc.), so I cannot tell you anything more about it, but will keep searching the Internet for clues.

Re: Remember this multiplayer game with unusual playfield?

As nobody has yet been able to identify the machine from a description, maybe the attached rough drawing will help (extracted from the memory, so may not be totally accurate!).

Remember this multiplayer game with unusual playfield?

As this forum's members are very resourceful, and have helped id some obscure machines for us recently, how about some memories and info on this one? This was a large multiplayer from the coloured perspex era, which was quite an attraction at the time. The player would insert pennies at the front of...

Re: Another Electro-mechanical giant to identify!

Have to admit, I am at a loss as to what they are - they look like they could be from the Art Deco period judging by their shape.

It might be worth re-posting this query under a new heading, to see if the bandit enthusiasts have any ideas....
