a fruit machine for jpm frank bird

AKA the Pounder! Exactly the same.

I used to have one of these, as it brought back memories of playing it on the local fair. I was really disappointed when I worked out that it won't ever hold on a jackpot. This machine was one of the fastest solenoid payouts ever!

The Winner electro from JPM 1977. This was a good time for JPM electro games and this was amongst them, Although no nudge it had the feature on the left side of reel glass that would offer a number of bonuses. 20p cash and a number of ways of winning the 50p tokens made it a good % payout machine. The reel glass seems to have seen better days which was something I found with JPMs around then with the glass being a sandwich of two pieces, they were especially a problem of misting up. Although description says working I would still prefer pictures of inside the back and lit up for that top end £200 buying price. Pounder being the £1 version.

As late as 1977? I would've expected Nudges.

Was the Carfield patent still in force?

No reason that they could not use nudges but some machines were brought out without them. I recon if this game had a nudge feature too then the % payout would have gone much too high to control.
