BMCo Over the Falls identified

Good evening
I bought this photo, it shows this beautiful slot machine that looks like a river. Anyone in your collection? Or do you know anything more about him?

Hi Lukas,
That's a British Manufacturing Co. Over the Falls or Climbing the Alps wall machine. They're rare, although the example below was seen on ebay UK recently. Like a lot of early BMCo games, they're extremely simple, hand-painted and coin-return only. You try to shoot the penny with just enough force to drop it down the 'falls' without overshooting. Sister games are Dodge-Em, Lifeline and Miniature Cricket.

That'll be the one above, I presume.
