Sega Clover Bell & Blackjack

Postby dutchboy » Tue Jul 24, 2018 8:24 pm

I just scored a Sega Clover Bell today, just in time before leaving for a holiday. I never have seen one, except on the internet. Does someone know if these machines have no reel brakes so the reels keep rolling till they stop? When you push the gum button each time it will give a gumball. Do I miss a spring somewhere maybe? At first sight it’s not so easy to take the mechanism out, I think I have to take off the handle first. Another machine to explore, but first a nice holiday so it’s got to wait a couple of weeks.
For the people who also go to travel, enjoy it! !!BRRRMM!! !!PLANE!!

The reels are on a ratchet mechanism and will stop themselves randomly.

I saw one of these at a jukebox fair in Brighton some time ago and it was priced at 175 quid and appeared to look very clean. I was quite taken by it. I seem to remember it being supplied with tokens marked Sega. An attractive piece and more in the look and feel of a bandit for display over the Mills/Sega Vest Pocket. Nice find, congrats! !!THUMBSX2!!

Thanks for that! I can’t find much about it now, wondering if there was a cashbox from origin. When I’m back home I will take the mechanism out to explore it.

How rare is this Sega Blackjack

Postby coppinpr » Mon Mar 09, 2020 8:19 am

Topic moved & merged - Site Admin.

I had an inquiry from someone on the www.penny-arcade.info site who has one of these Sega machines shown below. They are not slot people and want to sell the machine. My initial view is it's quite rare. Can anyone shed any light on its rough value so I can update them please?

Rare, well not common in this country and maybe due to the fact trade stimulators or gum ball machines were not the thing here. Not the prettiest of machines with its plain angular build and made by Sega. Was also badged under the Clover Bell label. One sold at the Elephant a while back for £240....

It looks like the picture you shared is the same flyer version below, perhaps they could have sent a real one ;-)

They didn't send any photo at all - I took it from my site. The machine is in Australia, by the way. :cool:

I reckon made for US market and obviously not popular as they don’t come up... As they say, rare does not mean valuable. Blackjack obviously has some kind of selection buttons for the cards chosen.

It would be interesting to create a list of very rare slot machines that fetch little money, in this case I can understand why....
