Over several months heenehenry (John Tafft) corresponded with me about his experience of inventing, building and exhibiting the Spot Luck dice machine which was produced and sold by Streets Automatics. He also kindly sent me paperwork relating to this project. It's most unusual to get such a first-hand, behind the scenes account. Thanks John! The full story, together with descriptions, pictures and videos of the other amazing payout dice games is now in the Arena.

What a wonderful collection of posts and so readable. Just to throw a spanner in the works, the machine in Barons Arcade in Great Yarmouth was a different one to those shown so far. The dice machine I recall was about 7 feet in height with a massive domed glass. It contained two dice, that floated in the air and then after a predetermined time, dropped to the base. It was in a very old case and was converted from pre-decimal currency. It fitted in very well with the Ahrens machines on display. Can anyone remember this one? !PUZZLED!

there is a modern coin operated dice machine that sounds much like the one mentioned of old. (I took a photo once but cant find it) this has six play stations and blows large dice into the air in a sealed glass tube before letting them settle and electronic readers set above the dice read the result and makes the payouts. The game it plays is "Sic Bo" the very popular Chinese (3)dice gambling game and the machines are common on cruise ships in the far east. Sic Bo has many and varied payout options and the game is very addictive and playable
