The Electric Speedway is a coin gambling game in the roulette mode.
By coincidence I finally managed to find an excuse to pop into Junktion Antiques near Boston, Lincs yesterday, just before the snow hit us and they have one of these. This is hardly surprising given the huge array of the unusual objects at Jack's place... It was good to have a natter, although I did not buy anything.

Didn't look at the price ticket, most of which were either not there or faded, but looking at the site, looks like their one was a lower quality item not in a wooden box: http://www.junktionantiques.co.uk/galle ... edway-Game

There were a few slots machines there that are not on their website, like a Bryans Walden Goliath crane.

I do have this game. As the museum has closed (2012 our last year) this Hey Presto ! is just about to go on ebay.

Never seen one for sale before. I will add pictures when loaded.
