Love it, apart from a dodgy looking star and the payout amount stickers looking a bit strange.

Not for me.
Re-vamping to me is building a new case, changing how it appears to the point of creating a new machine.
That one looks like someone has recently taken a late 50s machine and used modern techniques to computer generate a graphic to make it look like it's from the 70s.

A right mess, and an original machine possibly lost.
Someone out there ( I think we know who) has been doing the same with Jubilee bandits.
Using modern techniques to plonk Beatles and Concorde graphics on the belly glass doesn't enhance anything. You can even stipulate if you'd prefer Elvis! :tut

Seriously? :o You can honestly buy a real Elvis slot machine!?! Obviously the most desirable and rarest one to have would be from his low point, the mid to late 60's period before the leather clad comeback in 1968. So a toss up between #2 or #3? His eye shadow era 70's machines must be super common and worth nothing surely? :burp:

Errrr ..... that's David Bowie.

Unless it was Elvis I went to see live in 1974? :!?!:

Have to add this one at an auction, not seen before and not perhaps the best of the plastic fronted light up varieties
