I sell the full set of Cascade trips for £35 including postage. See Archive/Spares.
Some customers who've bought them said the ebay versions were poor quality. I can say I've had no complaints, mine are cast and chromed, whereas those above aren't. :tut

Dennis Jezzard: Tap-a-coin

Post by bamsefar1 »

This machine has text on the front-glass, partially adapted to Norwegian language.
Object of the game is to flick a coin into the playfield. Each coin is flicked thee times. To obtain the highest payout a payout slot in each of the three "floors" must be hit.

Dropcase/flick-a coin machines were the dominant type of coin-ops for approx 40 years. The fun factor with this one is the 3 flick action :-)

Fab video as always! This is the best condition Tip the Skittle I've seen, and nice to see one still on old 1D perspex signage and original lighting and colours. Every old penny arcade should have one.

Great to see one in action.
The thing I remember most about these is that they never worked properly.

The total wobbleyness of the skittles always attracted me.
Guess I just like wobbly things.

But what is there to go wrong?
Off-the-shelf toy plastic skittles were dissected to catch the coins and these were attached by lengths of steel measuring tape which support just enough pennies before collapsing.

I remember seeing a Tip the Skittle machine once with the pennies looking like they were falling the wrong way over the pins, away from the skittles rather than towards them, until they suddenly dropped into the skittle ( or not), very odd effect.

They take good money on site. A well known penny arcade operator couldn't understand where all his pennies were disappearing to until he realised his Tip the Skittle cash box key had been misplaced and the machine hadn't been emptied for several months.
