In effect Fruit Bowl and Clock are similar machines, but punters don't understand how to play the Clock and wind the key, and it doesn't look like it's easy to win, so they pass. The Fruit Bowl will always significantly out perform because it's more attractive, easy to understand and turn handle, and the big symbols look like they're much easier to win.
Jackpot allwin is a must have for making money. I have two next to each other and they consistently do well.

There are lots of jackpot allwins, one the most famous is the Philip Shefras version with the rotating hidden jackpot



Re: Philip Shefras allwins

I have the above version and one of favourites is the Morris Shefras Payola with hidden jackpot, lights and bells :shock:

Hopefully, the shadow of Alan Freed will have faded, and you won't need to 're-brand' it!

So, after many months of waiting the phone has rung with a booking for the Penny Arcade!

I will be exhibiting the arcade at the Warwick Victorian Evening on Thursday 25th November 2021 from 5pm - 9pm. If you are in the area do come and say hi, the machines will be on free play for the public to try out at no cost to them. 😀

I may have the trailer extension completed by them… having another move around, Octopus off, Payramid on etc.

Let’s hope the wedding hire market recovers for next year as this is where the market seems to be now.

Wedding hire?
Well, I know it's a bit of a gamble...

It’s great weddings are back in full flow again as I am finally busy again |/XX\|

I have never seen a vintage arcade at an event, but lots of fairground games, circus related items, magicians etc... People look for add-ons to amuse the guests... There are so many wedding venues, many would add you to their books I am sure. !!THUMBSX2!!

I've even been to a wedding where they had snake charmers carrying around large pythons! ..... Great fun.

Wedding entertainment has always been part of my living. I know it sounds hard to believe that the start of matrimonial bless can include booking a Punch and Judy show but people do book one 😂

More recently (pre COVID) there has been a resurgence of retro, vintage and themed wedding packages. Friends of mine hire out Fairground equipment, as some of you have already mentioned. The penny arcade project was always intended to be an add-on to these kind of events. Whilst I have taken it out at general public Fairground events, it is very hard work to earn a living. Far better to be paid and have the machines on free play for the public to enjoy. Hope to see some of you at Warwick in November. 😀
