Re: Who remembers this amazing dice gambling machine?

Good to know that others remember seeing it - it's amazing though, that such a large and impressive piece of machinery remains such a mystery! As I said previously, it had the look of a unit that might have been originally made for a Vegas venue - but strangely, even research on slot machine databas...

Re: Who remembers this amazing dice gambling machine?

I am reviving this old thread in case anyone has any further information about this huge old electromechanical dice machine - I have attached a (crude) drawing of how I remember it to be (bearing in mind that I was about 10 at the time I first saw it, so it seemed enormous to me!). To recap, it was ...

Re: Who remembers this amazing dice gambling machine?

Thanks for posting the pic and information - it sounds as though that machine works on the same principle as the big one we remember - if you do have time to take a look inside, we would love to know what you find!

Re: Who remembers this amazing dice gambling machine?

Amazing that it was still in the arcade in the '90s (I stopped going to the arcades in the mid '80s, so would not have seen it then) - it was probably on its last legs then, being an electromechanical machine. No wonder it kept going wrong! I have a feeling that it could have been imported from the ...

Re: Who remembers this amazing dice gambling machine?

Thanks a lot for the information and photo - however, the machine I remember was a very tall unit, with a large vertical glass case containing the rotating dice cage, located in the centre of the machine. I would estimate the cage was about two foot long, each end being about a foot in diameter (pre...

Re: Who remembers this amazing dice gambling machine?

I obtained one of the worn dice from Spot Luck, and noticed there were holes in certain positions on the white SPOTS on the black dice!!! So this MUST have been for payout purposes. Thanks for that, at least I now know I am not alone in remembering it, and that it wasn't just a dream! It sounds as ...

Mayfield Electronic Dice & Streets Spot Luck identified

Way back around 1967-69, I can recall playing on a fascinating multi-player dice machine in the Oasis amusement hall at Gt. Yarmouth. The darn thing has been on my mind ever since, because I cannot work out exactly how they made it work! It was a pretty massive unit, which featured several playing s...
