Topic moved & merged - Site Admin.

Can anyone put a makers name to this bandit? a collector in the USA has asked if I can tell him anything about it, its a very late hopper pay machine for sure , a re-cased Bally perhaps? although there is nothing from the coin entry to the cash tray that really shouts "Bally" to me :!?!:

Yes, you're right. When the owner mentioned the mech had "Space Co" on it I not only remembered the machine but already had a photo of one on my web site :dammit:
It's quite a famous machine. It was rushed out to compete with the Bally Money Honey and there was a much publicised debut at the Palace Club in Reno. It was a disaster - the machines proceeded to continuously empty their hoppers throughout the evening for no apparent reason!! Needless to say, they didn't make many and the company was dead within 4 years.
