Win Easy identified

Postby livinginthepast » Wed Oct 21, 2009 6:51 pm

Can anyone offer info on this domino themed allwin?
It uses a 1 1/4" ball - presumably not steel, running on a flat brass track. Brass is also the choice of material for the painted backface.
The lucky player receives only his coin back - no ball to replay!

I've located an old picture of your game. It's made by Bolland's Amusement Machine Supply Co. or British Manufacturing Co. and called Wineasy - See https://pennymachines.co.uk/Museum/Allw ... llwins2n12

Also see this thread for an idea of what the cabinet should look like (all these B.M. Co. coin return games are quite similar).

Thanks for that great bit of detective work PennyMachines - I see it's also listed in Paul Braithwaite's book.
Now all I need to do is find a ball for it - any ideas?

I've just been sent these images of a WinEasy. According to the owner, the ball is made of rubber - hopefully some toy company still produces 1 1/4" India rubber balls. A squash ball is 1 1/2" - a little oversize maybe.

I see in the photo you've got the old container of petrol handy in case you have to fire it, good thinking I never start a restoration without it. :P

This latest photo shows a Win Easy with payout knob and cup - presumably to reward a winning shot with both a coin and free ball.

That's true. I guess it was originally designed as coin return only but later versions offered the chance to win more than your original stake. Given the layout, perhaps it would be a "Win Too Easy".

Never forget the allwin code: If it looks too easy to win, you're looking at a great game that will steal your money. My guess is that you only get your coin back, no extra ball, with a win. Perhaps the owners of these fine looking games can confirm this for us.

I'm not sure if it would be win too easy - personally I have found some of the B M Co allwins extremely hard to win on. When I find a 1 1/4" rubber ball I'll try it and let you all know.
Do you think it's worth checking with Bobby Vee for a rubber ball?
