  1. Thanks for all the suggestions. Yeah it's such a vague memory that unitl I see the one I can't be too sure about that much. It was just the reel on that vid that prompted a memory of playing something similar. All I can say is that I think it would have been something reasonably common and not that obscure back then. There's also something about the £ symbols that's jogging a memory but I do wonder if I'm getting mixed up with a similar machine? Really bugging me now cos the memory is so vague but defnitely there!
  2. Mnay thanks for all of those. None unfortunately look familiar. I'd expect it was one that was relatively common BITD and as I say can't be 100% sure it was Maygay, just that the symbols and numbers looked familiar and not come across a machine with those when browsing online.
  3. Thanks Chris. Can't find pics/vid Freeplay given the name will pull up other stuff in search but definitely not the other two and don;t remember Freeplay name. Maybe the game was similar in style but made by someone else not Maygay. Difficult to remember that well after nearly 40 years!!
  4. I've just been watching some of Chris's vids on youtube and then stumbled across one someone else did for Cash or Nudge from Maygay from around early 80s. This rang a bell for me with the style of the fruiit symbols and I seem to remember a machine with the same style symbols but with a purple grape with a 4 on it on the reels (this one had a yellow grape). Not come across thistype of machine since back in the day and never realised it would have been one I played until watching the vid. Pretty sure though the actual mahcine I played was not Cash or Nudge but ANO. Anyone have any s
  5. Cool machine. I don't remember it being blue maybe blue was the Deluxe and a pink? the standard? Don't suppose its been emulated?
  6. Many thanks, yeah that's the one!
  7. There is one machine that I know is missing that I'd like to know the name of so can try to find info on it . It was a 2p version similar to Exchanges Unlimited ie with the 3x3 grid to award 2 nudges for 3 in a line but had no exchange function. It was actually 10p for 5 plays with a £1 jackpot for Bars or Pounds. I remember it also featured apples like in Smash and Grab. The cabinet had buttons on the side like Nudges Unlimited but was a lot smaller than the standard size fruit machine. There was also somehting like an @ symbol which would give you 10p or 20p on a gamble.
  8. I've spent the last few days compiling a list as best as I can of all the 80s fruit machines I could find. Without specific release dates, to try to keep to 80s, I've basically excluded anything with a jackpot less than £1 and more than £4. May of course spill over from late 70s and either miss some from late 80s or have some from early 90s. I used the Barcrest list I had earlier as the starting point (hence only dates on this one) and then went through this and a couple of other fruit forums for pictures and flyers and then looked at games I have seen emulated (from a disc
  9. I've realised I've posted on here (not very often admitedly) over the years and never properly introduced myself. I grew up on the Isle of Wight and spent a lot of time in the late 70s through to early 90s in the arcades there and also in Bournemouth where we used to go every school holiday to stay with my grandparents. One of the main reasons why I ended up in Dorset where I have now lived for almost 30 years. I only got into the fruits with Line Up around 83 (and this was my most played fruit machine ever) but did enjoy playing some of the earlier Barcrests like Spot Lig
  10. Cool find, so that answers where I must have got the list from and why there's only one for Barcrest, not other manufacturers. Although actually my list went up to 89....so i wonder if it was posted elsewhere and updated as the format is also different. Mine is dated 25 April whereas this post is 8 May so I must have got mine from before Captain Haddock's post but maybe Barcrest released info to others at around same time?
  11. This was a list I found on my computer. It was in a text file dated April 2008 but no idea now where I got it from and probbaly copied the info into the text file. Can't seem to find it online now but would have found it somewhere - it's defnitely not something I created myself! Hence I was hoping that someone here might recognise where I would have got it from and hoping that other similar lists from other manufacturers would also be in the same place, if we could find it again!!
  12. Looking through my old files I found this list which I must have downloaded from somewhere but can't find now. I would expect that there would have been similar lists for other manufacturers so if could find the source of this would be sort of thing I was looking for: YEAR MONTH PRODUCT NAME 1978 June Golden Nudge It 1978 Sept Wild Thing 1979 January Count A Nudge 1979 April Match It 1979 June Jokers Wild 1979 October Big Match 1980 January Any Way Nudge 1980 Sept Number Nudge £2 JACKPOT - 10P PLAY 1981 January Hi Lights 1981 January Silver Circles
  13. Yeah that's it, many thanks. Would be great to see colour pic or vid. Chuffed I got the year right! Did VFS make any others apart from Wheel of Fortune, Fruit Banker and Puffin Billy? Are those B&W adverts online somewhere?
  14. Thanks Joe, but afarid not the one I'm after. As I say it was very similar in lookng to the Wheel of Fortune and had the same style reels.
