Just wanted to share a discovery I did just a few weeks ago:
In Norway numerous versions of drop-case machines were released over a 50 years' period. During the late 1970s until the mid-eighties there was a Norwegian distributor named Scandomatic. This company marketed a drop-case machines called "Maxi". This was a very popular model which, over a long period of time, was to be found all over Norway. Four versions were released over several years, with mostly cosmetic alterations. All Maxi machines had a bonus feature: When hitting the highest payout column; hitting any of the payout columns within the next 5 plays would be rewarded with the highest payout of 7 coins.
The Maxi machines could be delivered with a coin-changer mechanism; so some had, some didn't.
Until 14 days ago I had no indication that this machine was fabricated in the UK, which it obviously was, since it's a Jamiesons Automatics product
A fellow penny-arcade enthusiast had got his hands on an original sales brochure from the 1980s where the Jamiesons logo was present. There are no obvious markings on the machine itself. I post some pics for you of this machine, which I am delighted to have in my collection.
Anyone who seen this machine in UK ?
