What's your favourite Belly Glass?

Post by coppinpr »

Now there is a question you don't hear asked very often!
Today I was making a replacement glass for someone and I thought "now that is a nice glass" and it occurred to me that I don't think that very often. All too often they are not that interesting or pleasing to the eye. So I thought I'd ask what others think.
This is the glass I made today, and I think its as good as I've seen

As a kid, it was Bally's 'Sir Prize'.
(Although I absolutely HATED 'Jolly Joker').

Machines I've owned

Bally Quick Draw as "animated" glass, sheriff draws and cowboys arms change to hands up position.

Ace Penny/Super Monte Carlo, though it's a top "glass" artwork, these took all my pennies in the 1970s.

Lots of really nice Bally glasses especially casino specials showing casino artwork etc.

Plus Bally top glasses that featured the win feature with the multi colour target tunnel.

Quick Draw must be one of the all-time greats.
Bally Bullseye is great, but I don't like their Circus at all. It reminds me of what must be the two most annoying belly glasses ever: Aristocrat Carousel and Fiesta.

First time I've ever seen this one. On ebay. Wish it was closer to me.

Seen and had maybe a dozen or so Bunce Bunny machines over the years. In many different formats, simple mech payout or with cam mech or e/m with Take Ten payout system and a few consoles with a £1 solenoid jackpot payout.

Reelstrips on these tended to be very poor with top surface "delaminating" off its backing.
