This topic is right up my street
being an ex DJ.

Maygay heavily used song samples on
many of their machines.

An example...
Gladiators
Had
Queen. Another One bites the Dust
Queen. We will Rock you
And
The Troggs. Wild Thing.

Simpsons had
Paula Abdul. Straight Up
Doop.Doop.

And Pink Panther m1 samples
Queen. The Invisible Man
When it nudges lol.

Loads of others tho
Not just on Maygay.

Maygay was the ultimate when sampling stuff.  Any M1a machine, was packed full of them.  Play Coronation Street.

 

Two princes main feature theme

Moving on up, nudge sample

The annoying whistle sample for the hi lo gamble, that was used in lots of other M1A machines.

I'm pretty sure the bass line from White lines was used as the Collect bank sample

 

I'm sure there was a little more leniency back in the day

One of the machines played "Peaches" by The Stranglers - part of it when you got nudges and also on the repeat chance. Was this Eastenders, or maybe Cluedo? Sure it was a Maygay machine.  :hmm:

Eastenders

Ace of Spades by Motorhead for the £3 repeat

Power of Love by Huey Lewis for the feature board

Happy Hour by Housemartins for the Queen Vic feature

 

Omega

Smalltown Boy by Bronski Beat for the nudges

Peace by Sabrina Johnston for the 'YES' on a repeat chance

 

Maygay were truly something to behold back in those days...

Maygay EastEnders had West End Girls, when pressing the hold buttons and then cancel.

 Yeah..that was a clever piece of programming, and pressing cancel finished the sample
