Videos of vintage slot machines in action.
Ouch, didn't mean to hurt anyone's feelings... I'm from Yorkshire y'know, we tend to tell it how we see it.

I have owned a couple of Bowling and Worldcups myself over the years. The first ones, I sold. I later got nostalgic, so I looked for new machines until I found similar ones.
Apart from damaged cabinets caused by rough use/handling, I have found these machines reliable. A common weak component on these NSM machines is the piece of plastic which the balls are resting against; down by the "hammer". One of the two "fingers" on this "v" shaped plastic has often broken off. I got machined new ones in aluminium. So in a private environment, I am sure these machines will last a lifetime.
I don`t know how long these machines were expected to last in operation, but many have survived. They are on eBay in Germany/Austria all the time, in various conditions. Were probably marketed all over Europe, as I understand, in addition to German speaking countries. They were also found in UK and Scandinavia.
A big compliment from me to the British islands for their high quality allwin/dropcase-type machines. Heavy duty on the older machines for sure.
