It's a great game and the sound of the ball falling is quite pleasing. I don't know why it wasn't designed to pay out though?
Not sure. The Trickler was one of Bryans first machines, circa 1933. Perhaps it was to do with gambling laws at the time? Obviously it was a skill game rather than chance.

According to the flyer:
A revolution in this class of game. The game for Clubs and Pubs. or anywhere where a few of the fellows gather together... The machine is unquestionably a game of skill, the ball being under the control of the player all the time.
Clearly conceived to find a market in locations avoiding a run in with the law on payout games. The hidden gambling agenda was "the fellows" wagering on their scores or the pub paying prizes over the bar. Sometimes a prize score was ticketed on the machine.
Nice example in the Museum.

I acquired a Bryans Trickler today, also in Australia... Just wondering if anyone can tell me the size of ball that should be in it ? Thanks

Surprised you have not had a response unless done via a PM, but then again maybe not with the lack of enthusiasm these days. I cannot help as don’t own one, obviously smaller balls. If this prompt does not get some interest of help, there is one for sale on the Melright site with email address who maybe willing to advice.

Hi Simon
I can’t remember the size off the top of my head. I’ll try to remember to measure them when I get home. And I’ll find how many balls it needs - it’s around 50 from memory.

I have been a bit tied up with "stuff" recently so I have not had time to measure my balls! :lol:

Now I have got round to it tonight I realise that I have absolutely no idea how to read the scale on my micrometer :woops:

So for those of you who are technically minded, or engineers, here are a couple of photos of my ball.

I hope this helps!

Ha ha, of course it depends if it is metric or imperial. I can see 8ths on the end, which makes me wonder if imperial. Looks old and knackered :lol: If metric, 6mm which sounds a bit small or imperial, maybe 6th of something. !PUZZLED!
