Just a few of our favourite things...
Not neccessarily the rarest or most valuable - simply the best, most appealing, most fun to play - the one you would most like to find in the damp cellar of an old amusement arcade.

You probably have a favourite. Well, click Post Reply and tell us about it. It doesn't have to be British - just pre 1970's. Tell us why it's your favourite. Got a picture? Post it here!

Once we have enough suggestions, I'll post them in a poll and we'll see which ones get voted into the top ten all-time coin-op pop-tastics.

Here're some of my faves: Bryans Retreeva, Buckley Bones, Gunter Wulff Elektromat...

Mills Black Cherry 1945 Alloy castings
Just one of my machines it still needs a dagger handle but i can live with the club one for now.It was junk when i got it but my son repaired the case and sprayed it black (Thanks Eddie when are you going to finish that Hightop case? ) .It's now on it's 3rd decal (1) Mills Novelty Chicago to (2) Bell-O-Matic Chicago i have now put a (3) Mills Novelty one back on.Why is it one of my favourite's because it is now a nice slot machine.
I still can't make my mind up should i leave it on 6d ? under the tab it was a 10c machine.

:) Nice job! I say leave it on 6d. After all, like most of these old American bandits, its been in the country long enough to qualify as a British citizen.

My favorite machine at the moment (subject to change) is my 1948 Mills Bonus Hi top.It plays so sweet and i keep running out of sixpences trying to get the Bonus.Its been a club machine at some point with the long handle and I don't think the lower castings are correct but what the hell the bonus mech is all there and so are its lights. :D [/img]
