    Well on and off. Not so much these days. You realise after a few decades the only real winner is the pub/casino/arcade.

    What would you say was the best time to play the fruities?

    I loved the 25p max play stage when I was around 18 (2003 ish), seemed fairer then. Now Deal or no Deal has basically ruined all slot machines. Cheers Noel!

    Some of the old club machines where you could gamble a bit. These days I like topcat and wish upon a jackpot.

    Pub fruits are no longer fun to play these days, it’s only going to get worse when they inevitably increase the stake and jackpot.

     

    Going back years the stake of 20p and Jackpot of £4.80 seemed the most entertaining, as the machine could afford a realistic save for a streak of £30-£60.

     

    Wont be long until the pub fruits are replaced with random low percentage bull shit Reel King nonsense 😀

    I agree with you.

    My local arcade was full of the £4.80 Project machines, and the Barcrest ones like Blue Moon and Cloud 9.

    Then the Jackpots got raised to £6

    Just used to go round them all streaking them, then played the surplus tokens on Barcrest, BFM machines etc

    I first started playing around 1982.

    When Line Up first came out on £2 token JP.

    Happy days with the £2 emptier

    Hi RedBell…

    I find it interesting that you wrote 45 years.  That would be starting early 1970s.  Do you know the roughly what historic jackpot amounts were?

    I started playing pub fruits as a teenager in the early 90s.  Think they were £4.80 jackpots back then and 10p a go?  Then it became £6 or £6.40.  Then I became a regular (casual) player in the early 2000s, like 2001 and it was £15.  Then I saw it go to 25p / £25 which was my favourite era, and like what SportsBetPunk said – seems to be fairer play on the machines.  Then it was £35 which was “ok”, starting to go downhill but was still ok.

    The earlier £70 (basically upgraded £35ers) were still ok for me but the later £70ers = gameover for me and I moved on to B3 machines and I get on better with those.

    Tokens!! Bloody hated them. A real con. Saw about 1000 of them in my local scrap yard 6 months ago.

    Strange post, no detail whatsoever and when pressed your fave games are wish upon a jackpot and topcat which are online only…

    Would be interested to hear more about the older games you played tbh,  if you did.

    I’m 49 and remember playing the one arm bandits on Blackpool pleasure beach as a kid in the 70s.
