I've never seen that one.
Are they footballers? Who pays the top prize?

My guess is that the machine should have a faceplate like the Jockey Club, something like. Everyone’s favourite as they are all different sports and were famous in each of their own skills... Maybe someone swapped out at some point.

I'm guessing that 'Geoff Dukes' is meant to be Geoff Duke, the TT rider.
An eclectic bunch indeed!

I always figured the builder that day just closed their eyes and grabbed whatever castings came to hand in a huge barrel?! I say that in all seriousness as I've seen tons of odd variations to these Boland machines over the years. They don't interest me in the slightest so never documented or kept track of any of them.

I agree about the seeming 'random nature' of the castings, but I find the machines fascinating.

It's always an embarrassment every time I remember that I only have ONE Boland's machine.
