my grail ..after all this time is secured .


Recommended Posts

Well f**k me,that's it!!! Back in 1984 i lived down Brighton i would be 11 years old and for those that know west street it was full of arcades and i always use to play on this machine and ever since getting into FME and joining mecca i look thought countless pictures for anything that could jog my memory,all i could remember about it was its small and it was 5 plays for 10p. So with not much info trying to ask the community and get an answer was second to none (it would be like trying to find a picture of Maygays Rio Gambler).

But,well thats it the machine that after all these years of looking at endless photos to find this machine and know that i wasn't going mad,and as a youth i did play this thing and not dream.

Many thanks for the pictures and the video so many memory's and nice to see the roms getting dumped maybe one day see a ploggy DX.

Thank you and a nice find.

Many happy memories of this machine.  Couldn’t really go wrong with it.  The jackpot was a tough one, as lots of little wins would upset the percentage.

Sadly there was only one place I saw this, and that was London Road amusements in Liverpool.  They had 2 back to back.  And the operator just let them rot, never replaced bulbs.  One had no sound I recall.

fast forward to today, and it’s wonderful to see one, in a very nice condition.  A lot of time and work, has gone into this.

Very nice indeed, my first jackpot. Yes, they come green which my local one was, also red, yellow and blue as above, the 4 different colours where all in a line in the very older Pleasureland Southport in a long gone arcade that was in the very far corner.
