Is it someone here I wonder, who's advertising on eBay a table to hold your bandits!!!!!! It's loaded with bandits on top, I'm not convinced it's the table they are bothered about selling, but hoping to generate interest in the bandits on show!!!! If it works, I may try it too!!!!!

Guilty your honour. Actually not selling the machines on cabinet but interested to see if it generates enquiries. I actually don't want to sell the cabinet either hence high price.

I did also list a stand with an Ascot on it as "stand only" but they pulled that.

I'm sure it's as battle of wits we can't win but it's nice that occasionally one gets under the wire.

I had to appeal to them and convince them it's a game of skill and was legal to sell.

Good on you, Jonesthegarage!!! I thought your idea was very creative... I had a Bullion pulled within the hour!!!, so as noted here it would appear that eBay is eliminating not only one arm bandits but also Allwins too.. Next it'll be the toy slot machines!!!!!

I know I've said it before, and also had a long debate with eBay about it, but what about all the modern Fruit machines that take current coinage still remaining for sale even without licence!!! Crazy Crazy World!!!!!!!
eBay got me beat... think I'll have to resort to Auction Houses... Thank heavens for Coventry and Elephant House!!
Without these Auctions how is our hobby/interests gonna be passed on to younger collectors... Not even Exchange & Mart is there for us!! lol
