If it is item 152891862676 the seller states that you also get your penny back - can't see this happening.

Indeed, I think that must be a mistake. Looking at the mech., the penny drops to the cashbox after releasing the ball. The manual reserve ball feed would suggest this is an early version of 'C' Allwin de Luxe Combination.

The seller has responded that a winning shot produces 1 plus 3 balls and a token(no penny returned) also that there is an issue with the mechanism for a token to release a ball. This make of machine was not on my radar but I am getting twitchy to acquire my first original Allwin and November specialist auctions seem a very long way away. Any thoughts as to realistic value would be appreciated. May fetch a premium as "questions to the seller" reveal a possible repatriation attempt!

Shiny penny, just in case you are unaware, on a win a token, one ball plus the balls in the reserve window are released. This may not always be three balls depending on how game play has gone. There are four balls in the machine. It is considered to be quite generous to the player which is why so many have had their reserve ball feature removed.

I shouldn't worry too much about a token not releasing a ball - if it is an intermittent fault (something you may want to ask the seller?) it could be that some of the tokens are too light. This has occurred on my machine. Ask if the penny trips the ball okay. I expect forum members will offer guidance with any niggles. Good luck if you decide to buy.

This unusual Reserve Ball Allwin or Winalot sold recently in the USA and note the added token or possibly coin payout unit, never seen the like before. From what I can make out it steps up slowly each payout and eventually deposits the token/coin as special random prize to the player. Appears to be a period operator add-on, and especially since there is no note of it on the award cards.
