Video of Large Private Collection of Fruit Machines (late 1970's and early 1980's)

Recommended Posts

I was visiting an old friend of mine last week that I've known for 10+ years, whilst helping him move into his new house about 4 years ago I took this little video of his machines, with his consent.

Another excellent collection. Video was a bit quick, I would have liked to have savoured for a bit longer.

its like walking back into time i would be happy in there for weeks and weeks thanks for sharing mike brings back memories :D :D :D

 

 

Some of these collections are better than the arcades were at the time. :lol: :lol:

 

Depending on where you lived at the time, Barry Island was the only place I could really go locally and see a decent number of machines. Even in the 90's some of these arcades were well run down.

 

It's go too see so many old machines live and well and looking so good.

That's in good condition, has it just come out of the factory? I remember playing on one of those that was 2p play, £1.50 jackpot.

Wow, the first thing I noticed was the genuine fake wood panelling that all arcades had from the 70's/80's.

Yes....I did notice the wood panelling on the walls..all it needs now, is the smell of cigarettes, pink wafers, and lots of 8' flo tubes, to give it "that" retro 70's look. Now that you've shown us, there has to be a Mecca day out..it's better than Mr P's. Sorry!

That would of been Fortune Trail my pride and joy. This is a picture of one that is in the gallery. A brilliant 2p play machine. Great for gambling on the gamble feature. When happy you can gamble 10p up to the jackpot fairly easilly by gambling 2up, 2 up, 2 up. Saying that when its on a suck the feature held light can be rare.
