hi i was thinking earlier on what was or is the most recognisable jackpots and then thought about the decades like the 70s 80s 90s 00s 2010s i have no idea about the 2010s as most machines are online from various gambling sites but i am guessing some where the melon symbol will be the popular choice but not sure of decade also the red sevens have a place some where,It would be interesting to see what you guys think for the decades.

60s- 70s - BELL FRUIT or BAR

80s - MELONS or BELLS

90s- Super 7s or BELLS (bellfruits use the bell symbol where their mighty rivals Barcrest used red 7s)

00s - BELLS or JACKPOT (or BWB or impulse or extreme symbols)

NOW, anything !!  All the games are different.

Jpm's Melons / Grapes

Bell fruits Bar or Bell

Barcrest Red (or blue) Bar, and The Barcrest man JACKPOT symbol

 

Anything over a 25 quid jackpot, is pretty much alien to me.

From the (foreign) old Dutch market these are the Jackpots from my good memories:

 

Bacrest from 1988 (Triple Bank and similar Barcrest machines from that time)

Bell-Fruit (Dutch distributor: Elam) Club 2000 from 1988: (and similar Bell-Fruit machines from that time)

Melons! :D

 

In all seriousness, I think on the really old machines it would have to be the yellow Bell Fruit boxes with black writing - but my first really fond memories were playing "Lucky 2's", "Plus Nudge" and "Crazy Reels" back in the day, which all used the glorious melon symbol.

For me, the Bell Fruit symbols from the electro's, they were the first symbol where I knew without looking, would be jackpot.

 

MPS2 era ,melons, then the MPU4 Barcrest Jackpot Symbol for the Nudge Quest, Flash Cash era of machines.

 

After that really only the bells from the numerous DOND machines.
