Bryans Penny-Go-round has to be the ultimate mid-sized vintage penny pusher.
There seem to be plenty of mid-sized games made from the 1970s onwards, including a few by Cromptons.

Copper Canyon my choice out of that lot, double falls and quite a pleasing shape.
I'm operating a Penny-Go-Round and it's a crafty game, looks like you can't possibly lose!

Do you have an image of it? Shocking fact :shock: - apart from the flyer, we don't have a picture of Penny-Go-Round on site.

Bryans Penny-Go-Round pusher. The arcade has not re-opened yet, I have still to set up the machine properly, make a solid concrete pad for it to sit on and then it can be fastened back to the wall.
Apparently the mirror was to alert change desk staff, if they saw the play field image wobbling in the refection they knew it was being manipulated.

I can't wait to see this in action.
There's something fascinating about the relative motion of the two parts; can't quite remember what it was.
Is this the one where you can't see the 'lost' hole?

Thanks moonriver. One of these got me addicted to penny slots. While the disc rotates, the wipers oscillate to and fro. It was worth keeping an eye on, because sometimes this caused a bunch of coins to shift back and forth for several minutes, before a few would spill to the payout.

The 'lost hole' is very cleverly disguised by the name plate overhanging the play field right at the front. Underneath that is a little flap that periodically raises and lowers to pinch overhanging pennies allowing them to fall down into the cashbox. It does it without raising any suspicion at all, and the play field looks like everything that falls off is a winner.
