I just put this site in the Archive: http://alte-spielautomaten.de

It has a really good history of Max Jentzsch's Leipzig company.

Worlds biggest private slot collection

Post by coppinpr »

Topic moved & merged - Site Admin.

I dont know if this has been shown on the forum before,I cant find it. It is a great video showing an amazing selection of machines, it also touches on two threads running just now.
1.The unusual Bingo Buckley being discussed came from this collection

2. 5min 30sec into this video you catch a glimpse of several machines much like the "nine holes golf" that has a thread running,would these be US made?

I replied to your video on youtube before. Your collection very much reminds me of the kind of collection I and a friend of mine have, a deep and eclectic collection of coin-operated electro-mechanical and mechanical machines from around the world.
(and yet amongst our three collections, there is minimal duplication)

Still curious as to what your upright Circus machine is.

The upright circus machine is a 1945 Williams Circus Romance.

Well! That's some games room. No wonder you have got room for the Golf game. You are a lucky chap, and so is your wife! Get rid of that sofa and get some more machines. :lol:

Hahahaha - the couch has been on the chopping block for a long time, but when you buy machines you should have a back up place to sleep - always handy.

Shed extensions on the cards, and hopefully then I’ll finally be able to fit the rest of my machines in, but probably not. 😂😂

The 20 foot ball bowler I’m sure dad would love to no longer have dangling over his Corvette. 😂😂😂

Thanks for the link! Love seeing the bonus photos. What is the Circus Romance mechanism? Is it just like a "flasher" slot machine? I can't read the instructions on it. :)

It’s a love meter - select your birth month with the knob; insert your penny in the slide mech; a bell rings and it selects a random bit of BS. Hot, cold, sloppy, etc.
