Identification Visuwin and Art Deco catcher

Postby treefrog » Mon Apr 30, 2018 10:34 pm

Happened to notice the below picture of a collector, who probably is on here looking for machines on one of the many selling websites......not seen these machines before. A unusual Allwin style machine called Visuwin and a Art Deco style catcher with similar looking arms to a Payramid. Anyone seen these before and know anything about them, look quite nice......maybe the owner will share ;-)

I know the owner of these but don't think he's a member here. The Payramid-like machine is called 'Sun' and my 'educated' guess as to maker would be Brenner. Unlike the Payramid, there's no jackpot and I think you win one penny for each ball caught, but I don't recall how many balls you get. I mentioned the game previously here: Re: Arcade Photographs

The 'Visuwin' works like a standard (2,2,4,6,4,2,2) 7-win gallery allwin, but is unusual in that it brings the normally hidden channelling and ball stops of the payout mechanism onto the front of the playfield. As the name suggests, it's designed so the ball never disappears from sight. A win is therefore indicated by the position of the ball on the playfield, prompting the player to crank the payout handle and release it ready for the next play. I've no idea who made it.
