Jennings jackpot lever

Post by widget2k4 »

Was missing a jackpot lever off my Jennings. My mate came down and I was telling him, he knocked this up in no time at all. Just shows what can be done when parts are not available and what skilled people there are out there that don't even know it. :)

Made from an old reel brake I had lying around.

The Jennings was a mean machine when it came to winning jackpots. Odds of 7999 to 1 of hitting it. Most of the Mills and Sega machines had 2 (and sometimes 3) jackpots. If your club or bingo hall had a Jennings, you could wait literally for weeks before seeing it happen... and it was usually someone else who won it. How sickening!

The Jennings Buckaroo has four chances of winning the jackpot, so slightly better odds. :)
