The Cardinal

Postby widget2k4 » Tue Jan 13, 2015 5:29 pm

Just about to start on this and wondered if anyone had any info on it at all?
Only ones I can find had bubble gum in them,. This one has all the works inside for bubble gum and even a refill flap on the back, but nowhere for a gumball to come out of.
Also, I cannot find another one with the same reels? Have they been replaced? If not, any idea what the two end reels are meant for as there is nothing on the award card about them?

I've seen this model before, it's certainly made by Pace, most likely in 1935, which I guess you already knew.

It's very like the "New Deal Jackpot" which has the same top case but a bottom case with a jackpot the operator unlocked when the jackpot came up. This machine also had no gum ball delivery system.
The reels are most likely correct. If they don't agree with the payout card then the card has been changed as the reels could well be correct.
The reels can be be a mix of fruits, numbers and playing cards that relate to the correct payout card. The "New Deal" had similar but not identical reels. The difference here looks like the fruits are the first three reels and the other two are multiplier and a fortune teller/life advice reels (the card reel could also be used by competing players for high/low bets (like cutting cards) whereas the "New Deal" had the reels mixed up. I've seen the Cardinal with all playing card reels, a mix of reels and most often letters and numbers. The letters can form the word "BEER" which I guess got you a free beer. All the others I've seen do have a gum ball delivery system.

Interesting Paul, thank you.
It's obvious the missing strip is fruits but I cannot work out what the numbers and cards are meant to be for?

I had no luck getting the strips, so if anyone knows of anywhere else I could try it would be greatly appreciated.

Anyone know of anywhere else I may get some?
