quite fancy this one , looks like a decent machine ?

that addams family and lotr machines look good as well , but a long way from me to go and collect.
I would HIGHLY advise you against that.

Unless you wish to play something that is NOT a great deal of fun :?
you really think so? I quite liked the machine - and pretty new also

I guess there's a difference between a machine that was a good payer in the arcade and one that is fun to play in the home. that's why I suggested a themed bandit like Indy , Simpsons or Austin Powers was best to get

Nice!

Sadly one of the "later" JPM's, but you'll have a lot of fun with it though.

I had a Hot Shot fruitie in my room a few years back, and it looks funky when it's dark/no lights on!

Just let me know when I can come round and "empty" it lol

Wouldn't using MFME be cheaper and easier?

I used to play this really wicked Pink Panther Machine back at college. I think it only had a jackpot of around £10, if that. But I got it most days on my lunch break. That's really the only fruit machine I've enjoyed, got to know all the inside tricks on how to make it payout.

i dont want to play them on emulators (but thanks) . i got the machine i bought off ebay , great fun messing on it last night (1 jackpot win for a total of £90 £1 coins put in).

lots of fun sub games on the side bar and a mini circuit to play to increase win chances etc

great buy for £80 and a drive out !

thanks for all the advice .
