Dropcase Games

Post by rippyspennyarcade »

Dropcase Games are defined here as those in which coins are used as projectiles and fall under the influence of gravity towards the winning targets.

I restored this machine about 15 years ago (hence the "superb condition" !BOAST! ) and sold it to the vendor who put it in last Sunday's auction. Around the same time I bought the sister machine, Sky Divers. Both had remains of grey fleck paint on the wood (probably factory original) but I couldn't live with it and stripped them back to the pine. I've not seen another before or since, but curiously they both got back together for a few hours at the Coventry sale.

It seems there were at least four versions of this game - Beachcomber, Sky Divers, Penny Drop and Pools Scoop - see: Cromptons Wall Machine flyer

This is a Dennis Jezzard " Tap a fruit" dropcase / flick a coin-machine. Probably made late 1970`s.
The voice in the video is in "viking-language" (Norwegian).
