    All time favourites the Simpsons old one with the four towers in each corner had a great code to reset after a jackpot got banned from many an arcade . Pig bikers another one and vamp it up doctors and nurses had some great things that if you knew helped you massively.

    flashy pigs eyes 🙂

    I loved the 25p max play age. There was one with a volcano on it that I remember owning.

     

    I have to say I love the Blueprint though, seems much fairer than the DOND clones.

    there were a few fruities with a volocano on it the only one I can remember off the top of my head was called “cash flow”

    Back when i was playing… monty python and holy grail was great.

     

    The first game i ever got addicted to was a 5 quid jackpot called lucky strike or something? You got the board with numbers, collect 4 for bonus, reach 9 for board. Go around the board and it usually died first press, but you collect either nudges, cash strikes, or win spins or  features i think or something else. Cant remember it for sure but i loved that game. “Crazy cash” was 2nd to top feature, always paid more than JPK repeater.

    you must have played the great escape and lord of the lings and big brother also then they were around the same time 🙂

    I remember the Italian Job 🙂  It came out in 4 different versions spanned across many years.

    TIJ1 – the one you’re describing.  I can’t remember who made it, I have a feeling it was Maygay.  There was a gangster themed re-skin of this as well, called the Mob.

    TIJ2 – this was definitely Maygay.  It came out in 2001 as £15 and it received the £25 update in 2002.  It had a basic lapper board and 3 minis took you to the super lapper board that gave you upgrades and repeats.  Landing on “flat battery” removed one of the minis and you were back on the basic board.  There was a re-skin of TIJ2 called Madness (as in the 80s pop group).

    TIJ3 – I think this was Maygay as well.  Came out in 2004, still on £25 setting.  The nearest I could describe this is Bellfruit’s Royale Banker where you had a lower board with small cash knockouts in the middle.  Then 3 minis invoked a slide mechanism which extended the board (so like Royale Banker or Dream Factory) with bigger cash knockouts on the upper half of the board.  Don’t think TIJ3 got re-skinned.

    TIJ4 – this was a Deal type game, made by Mazooma or Bellfruit.  It would have been around 2008 era and on £35.  I think the minis were on a 3 x 3 matrix.  When it was filled, you could collect a streak, and the streak “strength” depended on what colour the minis were if memory serves.

    First time poster so firstly hi!

    As a young boy in the nineties, I used to love going to the Working Men’s Club with my Dad…mainly so he could play on what I remember as Club Lucky Strike and shoot for £100 on a 10p stake! We always used to holiday at the seaside, and the best part of the day was the hour I’d spend in the arcades after tea.

    There was such a wide range of machines back then that I look back and reminisce fondly when I see arcades nowadays.

    – trying to get into the centre on Pot of Gold

    – cottoning on that three holds guarantees a win

    – realising that holding all three reels when you’ve 2 guarantees you a bonus and trying to explain it to your Dad (!)

    – collecting each feature to see what it did on a new machine

    – the first time you realise cancel slows the light down!

    Nowadays in arcades at the seaside, there are rarely any fruit machines – and what there are largely don’t work. I can only imagine when the last slots were made that are designed as 5p/10p £5 JP – the only new slots in arcades now are token only payout. I guess that the shift has been due to trying to keep kids away with gambling – but the token machines in my view are worse. At least I know what £5 would buy me, 300 tokens in some arcades won’t get a kid a bag of Haribo.

     

    Good times!
