I know they did a Hi Top Chrome version 4 reeler, but cannot find any information
Is this it?

Yes, the three reeler would have been called the "Mills Three Crown". The Hi Top is certainly a Bell-O-Matic with the plastic award, but I wonder if this is a special for the Horseshoe Casino. I think the name for the 4 reel chrome Hi top was a Mills Hi Top Deluxe Chrome (see video). Bell-o-matic also did the Silver Palace Hi Top, which some like, bit I think looks a bit too bling.

I'd suggest that the emotion and rancor posted is over the situation and is no different to how we feel when an auction disappears off eBay. :!?!:
So beanieboy, welcome to the site. I don't know what you paid for it, nor how much you got for it, however the fact that you had it shows you're one of us. :cool:

When I read the post, I understood your request and wondered to myself how many members would immediately contact you to pursue it directly. That's your business and only you need know that. I imagine an offer was made and you accepted.

I suggest we all accept beanieboy as a valuable addition to our membership !!YIPPEE!! and move on.

At the same time we behind the scenes should revisit the Stickies and also make it easier not to contravene policies.

Anyhoo ..... beanieboy I hope you're still around and can add to my knowledge. Although I consider myself a Bandit aficionado, I'd like to know what it actually was? I seem to remember seeing one on the web a few years ago. The Coronet, I think was misleading, and it might have been a Mills.
Beanieboy, where did it come from, 4 reelers are usually from abroad or private clubs or Cruise Liners?

Thankyou very much it was never my intention to upset anyone here
