Not trying to expand your horizons, however if you want a really different Allwin with astonishing mechanics supporting a really unique game play clue yourself into Brenners Ball Past the Arrow............... :cool:

Since I did this I've tidied up some of the temporary makeshift adjustments I made to get it working. Converted it from steam to nuclear and had a haircut.

You may notice, the videos show two rather different machines. BP's is a very early model with a handle to set the arrow. Later versions did away with the handle and the two coin payout. You pulled the trigger once to release the ball and again to set the arrow and fire the ball. The prize for winning was one coin and a free go. Rippyspennyarcade's video shows the final version which had a shallower cabinet and flat arrow (compared to the earlier, chunky arrow). In this version, one pull of the trigger set the arrow and delivered the ball ready for firing upon release and there was no 'guaranteed win' position.

Have always wanted one! I think they are really neat.
Maybe I am pushing my luck but.... you would not have a video of the inside mechanism in action, would you ?

Thanks, Christophe.

I'm not an allwin man but I like to learn all I can about all types of slots. Just seen this very nice machine on ebay at a very high price. Can anyone tell me anything about BW Brenner of Croydon. I grew up in that area in the 50s but don't recall this firm. Anyone know their old address?

Hi coppinpr :D His full name was Bernard William Brenner. His old address was 374 London Road, Croydon, which I think was across the road from the end of Pemdevon Road. As to the price of the Ball Past Arrow, I have one and it is a good machine to play, but don't think they are worth anything like that.
But I could be wrong :!?!:

Brenner - Get Past The Arrow.

In my view is a classic. It's more than just an allwin it is very mechanical and as interactive as a random machine can be.
It's random because you have no control over where the the arrow ends up.
I think that price is a bit ambitious however they have always achieved an above average allwin value.
Here's a video of mine .......



I think if you do a search on this forum you should find a few threads on this really unique design of allwin. (Merged above - site admin.)
