Wonders Plioneer with free ball

Postby polaris » Sun Apr 05, 2020 10:10 am

Bought this new addition a couple of months ago and am now about to spend some time tidying it. Can anyone shed any light on ball return feature? I notice there are two balls in the machine and on winning when the knob's turned to receive coins it pulls on two copper wires lifting the ball release, thus giving coins and free play. Is this original to the machine or an operator addition? There are no operating instructions, they appear to have been removed, but it's the first time I have come across anything like this.

It’s the Plioneer Mr P, had a look and found another in the EH with the usual standard operating instructions, so looking like it’s possibly been altered.

Yes, it's an odd modification, isn't it?

I always presumed it's a play on the word pioneer. Plioneer saying 'play - on - here'. If that makes sense !PUZZLED!
