What can you tell me about this Jokerboul?

As the title says, what can anyone tell me about this Jokerboul machine? I know it's French, 1936, made by Courson. I can't find much about the maker, except that he only made two machines.
How is it played? How many balls should it have? What is the approximate value?
Thanks guys.

Re: How long before it’s re listed

I was watching that machine, just to see what people would pay for a repro, that didnt work. I was amazed when it went to over a grand, then it went down to £720, then back up to over £1000. Why? Do people really pay that for something that bad?

Re: My thing with slots

PM, what date would that have been, please? I think my Dad had left there by 1975-6.
I will ask my Dad tomorrow if he knew Jimmy, and his warehouse.
Thanks for that info.

Re: My thing with slots

The Jenny Wren used to do trips along the canal, I remember going on her when I was a kid.
I know it still runs today. There is a floating Chinese restaurant between Camden Lock and Little Venice.

Re: My thing with slots

So Jackpot could play the slots, as I mentioned before, we all used to hang around the amusement arcades, and we worked out the best time to play. But Jackpot could play certain Fruit Machines anytime and win, all the time, on these certain machines. I guess he studied those machines, and worked out...
