    Nah I gave up ages ago, probably around 2004ish I think. I moved onto online casinos, online poker and sports betting. There was still plenty good stuff that came out after I gave up and On a Bucket sort of continues on where I left off so to say. Degsy was playing around the same time as me I think.

    Yeah no doubt people are still doing it today but I’ve long since left the fruit machine game. If you are feeling generous give my channel a shout out on your one of your videos 🙂 I’ll give ya free access to my patreon feed in return if you like, there’ll be stuff there I know you will find interesting.

    What is a Patreon feed mate, i will have to google that one haha.

     

    I’m a player myself, have been for 8 years – relatively new still by your standards i would guess but i buy machines in and crack on myself. It’s a shame on a bucket felt like abusing me in the comments of my latest video lol bit random that one, guessing he didn’t know what i did as a main source of income, he may have been a little more friendly if he knew haha

     

    I find it difficult to reveal that side of “what i do” purely for the amount of questions it may raise but there you go, i’ve said it now haha

     

    I do a lot of sports betting and trading too, that is another string to the bow so to speak, a very reliable source of income. Matched betting back in the day was easy money, not so much these days with all the ridiculous terms and conditions but definitely still possible if you are willing to put the time in!

     

    I struggle for time these days as i am juggling these three “jobs”, my channel, fruits and trading and it is very difficult to fit anything else in and when you have 2 kids and a wife that is never good!

    Oh did he ? I missed that what did he say ? Patreon is a site where people can donate money rewards to creators for creating content and you often get extra stuff for donating not available to general public. It’s also good for channels that keep getting de-monetised by youtube as they consider their content not advertiser friendly.

    I’ve been bonus banned at pretty much every decent casino going hence I’ve made a load of videos about some of the techniques I use to make cash from online casinos and stuck it as part of my patreon feed. Take a look here if you fancy   https://www.patreon.com/cheerfulpessimist

    There’s not point even beginning to explain this kind of thing to some people as “the bookie always win” and that’s it as far as they are concerned. I don’t even bother trying to convince them otherwise.

    Offers now are nowhere near as good as before but yeah there’s still cash about. It’s a pity pinnacle sports stopped taking UK bettors as they were a great bookie.

    Ah just the usual affiliate hate, I’ve nothing against people’s opinions but when they aren’t based on the facts then there is simply no value to the comment.

     

    Pinnacle were a good bookie for a hefty bet for sure and yeah lol you will always get the “there’s only one winner” folk, leave them to it usually is my stance there too.

     

    I will have a look mate.

    Does remember about 35 years ago when the machines used to let you put 50p in and give you 40p change they were like 10p a go I was a bad boy then we used to make 50ps with 10p wrapped in foil to make it about the same weight as a 50p we made a fortune till they got on to everyone doing it and the old clickers with 10p glued to a piece of cotton and you would put it in the 10p slot and move your finger up and down and watch the credits go up and if you thought someone was watching you you would snap the cotton string in your fingers and let it drop then you would play all the credits and collect every win as it was profit and change the tokens behind the counter then they brought out the electronic games and put a stop to the clickers and homemade 50ps now they where the good old days when you never lost to a machine lol

    So you’ve been into fruities for ages to bandit!!!

    i started playing properly when i was a wee teenager @14yrs old (1989). What i call the great times for fruit machines mid 80’s through to 2000

    first slots i used to play were the 2per’s like blue streak, cash  explosion etc. i got into the devils game by working up a chip shop and staring at the fruity in the corner “topstop” by barcrest £2 all cash. then began the downward spiral into being skint week after week there were to many iconic machines to list the likes of jpm’s switchback, barcrest’s taketwo, cash attraction, jpm’s roller coaster. i played em all 100’s of different machine’s from the £4 token era through the £4.80/£6/£8 to the £10/£15 all cash then onto the £25er’s where partytime and its astra clones became firm favourites of mine.

    the arcade gambling dwindled off when the £35 jackpots came in and since the £70-£100’s i never played them .

    i still go for the odd binge now and again, but mainly play online.

    i also make and play the emulated machines so i get my “fix” from these.

    I’m not a winner on fruit machines but I used to have a few faves.

    Games with a board to work your way to the top of were always ones I was drawn to, like Road Hog and I think I remember a Smokey & The Bandit one in a dusty arcade when we used to go down to Talacre for a weekend in the caravan. There was a fun Coronation Street one as well, might have been an £8 jackpot.

    The modern ones might have the allure of big jackpots, but they are mostly really dull. Deal or No Deal make up the vast majority of current offerings, but all you’re ever playing for is a “Deal” game which doesn’t make for much excitement.

    Two I would own if I found a good example (well one really, they were the same game with a different face on) were Battle-Axe and Revolution.  Huge wheel in the middle of the board and it was just a hi-low gamble to build up cash, nudges and features. Nudges could be used mid game to improve your features, it often took a bit of strategy rather than blind luck.

    Last one (mis-spent youth, seriously) was Rich Geezer. The three reel version obviously. I think it was a £35 jackpot? Loved the noises it made, hated the volatility!   😉

    Kojak – agreed with you on Battle-Axe and Revolution!!  Around 2002/3 era if memory serves.  I also liked Fireball and Dosh & Pecks which were related in terms of the big roulette-style wheel, except that some numbers were lit up in red instead of white.  These were quite strategic as well.  I think the big wheel had 16 segments, and if 8 of the segments were red, then it was a silent invincible – a cue for the player to keep playing up to the top feature or jackpot without losing.
