    can’t remember the name of the machine but it used to have a dog similar to spike from disney saying, ” That’s my boy!” on a let ’em spin was one slot. Others beside the ones you’ve mentioned are up up and away, money talks, aliens, Adams family, cash flow, snake rattle and roll, cops and robbers, lord of the rings,jolly gem, ceasers palace’s club and arcade versions. and the classic CASINO CRAZY :). there was another called supernova that was a £25 jackie that used to go for about £350 or something stupid lol. Juggling jackpots (JJ) was another good one once you understood how to approach it, it played slighty different to other machines at the time if u were going for the top/streak. funnily enough JJ I have noticed has started to make an appearance on the pub touch screens machines these days and if you play it right u can actually win off it which is unheard of these days on pub machines lol

    Casino crazy was one of my favourites too….Super Bingo for the four corners and the bottom line was the best feature I think. Great days when fruit machines were fun to play.

    Can anyone remember the short period when you could collect actual prizes from the machines. I think it was in the late 90’s or so but I remember my mate playing Big Banker at the local ten pin bowling alley and he won a set of darts….which he still has to this day. Can anyone remember what other prizes were available? 🎰🎰🎰

    Sadly the days of really fun and playable fruit machines are almost gone. 🙁 Used to love popping in to the local arcade and back in the 90’s we were spoiled for choice. The period between the £3 cash, £6 tokens up until the £25 jackpots were the best. Here are my top ten, that I can remember anyway.

    1. Casino Crazy.  2. Hyper Viper. 3. Lasvegas strip. 4. Viva Las Vegas 6.  5. Big Banker.  6. Big Bucks. 7. Miami Dice.  8. Surprise Surprize.  9.  Eastenders.  10.  Indiana Jones.

    Probably forgot some classics but although these weren’t always the best for payouts, they were fun to play. Playing a DOND clone has nothing to offer and you can go through £100 in no time. Yes you could lose on the old fruits too but you got value for money.

    just a side note forgot about this one, OVERDRIVE with the Top Gear feature 🙂

    The golden age of pub/arcade slots was without a doubt the £15/25 jackpot days.Profitable/fun machines if you knew which ones you could manipulate(legally) with a bit of knowledge to squeeze more out of them than your average joe (providing they’d taken a little bit first obviously)

     

    faves were:

    Psycho Cash Beast, Frenzy, Big Brother, Addams Family, Neptune’s Treasure, Pie Factory, King Kebab,

     

    now Im settled down and only play online slots and lose like the muppets I used to laugh at…sad times..lol

    Think I was the only person in the UK that couldn’t work out the Big Brother cheat, Psycho Cash Beast was really enjoyable. Enjoyed the club machines such as cops and robbers as well. Happy Days.

    my favourite with casino crazy with the bingo balls.  holding down cancel slowed the balls with you got casino crazy lit up so you could get the bottom line and 4 corners for the best feature. always jackpotted it loads using that method.

    Fond memories being brought back in this thread.   I remember always taking a peek to try and see how full the coin tubes were before playing them. Dont know how true it was but i was told that if you heard the drop into the bottom of  a machine it meant the coin slots were full and the machine was ready to pay the jackpot. Rarely seemed to work for me tho.

    Checking how the full the tubes were was a standard ploy cos you know someone’s dropped a big win if it’s empty…was also important to know when they were emptied and filled so you didn’t come a cropper chasing a jackpot from a ‘full’ machine that had been hammered and refilled by the  evil engineers 😬

    Definitely the best age of machines £30 could last ages, unlike now burn that in 5 min.

    Miss all these that where actually fun to play,, if I find one now it’s always 5 quid jackpots in a seaside arcade which is a shame.

    The makers like everyone else became greedy and can’t be bothered trying to make new games. Just stick to DoNd clones which are boring and tbh I’ve rarely seen jackpot.

    I had a club £250 psycho cash beast years ago. Endless hours of fun. Better than the modern day crap anyday.

    I used to play in a Showboat arcade and in its heyday it was extremely busy and i was surprised how few bothered to check the tubes.                  There was another great machine i loved to play but can’t remember what it was called. It was great because you could get the £35 jackpot off the second lowest (from 12) feature. The regular features were blue but you could get them to turn red and into super feature mode. On red if you had the jackpot symbol in the window you took the feature and then in slow motion a light went round the window landing on every symbol so you just waited until it landed on the jackpot symbol and pressed stop. Easiest gamee ever to hit the jackpot.

    Agreed Paul!  I remember £10 jackers as well but I had only just turned 18 and didn’t play those very much.  I played regularly in late £15 and throughout the £25 era.  I’ve only ever been a casual (not “player” or “pro” type) and I agree with you that £15/£25 was the best.  A good balance between having fun and not losing too much too quick, and occasionally making a fortune if the machine went invincible.

    Favourite machines were: Fort Boyard / The Jackpoteers, Rolling Thunder, Tae Kwon Dough, Revolution / Battle Axe, Dosh & Pecks etc, King Kebab, High Flyer / Super Star, Hellraiser / Vamp It Up + clones, Mega Zone, The Rat Pack, Pie Factory 2, The Italian Job 2.  I could name a lot more.  I also liked some of the earliest Deal or No Deals from 2006/7 from when the jackpot was changing up to £35 but it quickly went downhill after that.

    I know I’ll get a lot of hate for this, but I never got on with Psycho Cash Beast or its Frenzy variant.  I also never got on with Pony Express either!
