Nice find. Thanks for posting. Many classic games here. Those two fleeting shots of the Basketball (with balls blowing from the middle similar to the Bingo machine earlier in the clip) are the first I've seen of the game since playing it as a kid. Also answers my question about the manufacturer - another fun game from Shields of Bridlington. It has something in common with the 1930s Ahrens Bubbles.

A generous cocktail of video monitors and electrickery shaken up with oodles of computer controlled chips :mrgreen: .............. but then again what isn't these days?
If this place was on my doorstep I'd go in for the atmosphere but it wouldn't slacken my purse strings any.
Hasn't Burt Reynolds got an amazingly tiny yet tinny sounding wanger?

An interview with Joe Welch himself... watch it to the end and see if you can keep count of the vintage slot machine in his collection....

Wow - what a collection! It must be worth upward of $30 million. More upright wheel machines in one room than I've seen in many years of auction sales. If you want to see it, better make it soon, or the next chance you'll get is when it's broken up and sold at auction - it's worth far too much for the local community to buy it and keep it open unless he wills it to them. The Liberty Bell alone is worth seven figures. The only other one I know of is in the Fey collection at Carson City Museum.
