A brief history of the Bell Fruit Manufacturing Co., of Nottingham.
Explaining the 1960s Bell Fruit bandit mechanism.
Thanks for the clarification. I took my (rather vague) information about the American gaming scene from a book about coin-op games. In Great Britain, we have had gaming laws relaxed since 1961 and when the National Lottery arrived in 1994, we seemed to become a nation of gamblers.coppinpr wrote:The Johnson act (1951) in no way bans slot machines. What it does do is ban the movement of slot machines to a state where machines are banned by state law. This law is still in force but has been modified many times since 1951. There has, I think, never been a law totally banning machines in the USA, although it's come pretty close.
