Uncle Allan visited today

Post by badpenny »

It's like your birthday when Allan from Amicus Couriers pops by.
In the six'ish years I've known him his knowledge about slots has noticeably improved.

Today's pressies .....

Many thanks to one of our key contributors on here for tipping me off about The BDR , it was on eBay and miss described having been placed under something obscure like "Heavy lump of metal with badge BDR" It literally had a few hours to run with no bids.
Cheapest BDR I've ever bought.
Thanks again You Know Who You Are.

BP !THUMBS!

Nice machines BP and the BDR is the super jackpot version, looks very tidy.

I have a Columbia, one of the few small bandits I own and like, as I don’t like QT’s the main alternative. I am sure this has been raised on here before, but what is the little button for next to the jackpot, not something that is on my machine !!THUMBSX2!!

As you didn't say how much the BDR cost it must have been a steel... er, steal.

The BDR looks like it is about to tumble off its stand. Let's get things squared away there, BadPenny. dirtdog

Hi TF,
The plunger by the jackpot is an override device in case the jackpot fail to drop on a win. You push the plunger to release the jackpot, this only works if a j/p has been attained. Hope this answers your question.

Lincolnshire is the mountainous region of England John, we are so high here that gravity is weakened by the time it reaches us.

Useful addition, many three reelers with a jack pot would benefit from that. Three on the line occur so rarely that they forget what to do.

Thanks JRA,

Never seen anything like this on other machines and obviously was not installed on all Columbia models, so either they had a flawed design with a retro fit or some other reason. Occasionally you get issues on other manufacturer machines version where a poor coin position can jam the drop plates, maybe they had an answer to this.... !!IDEA!!
