Meet Polly!
« on: 16 August, 2019, 21:18:23 »
Look whose back in town?!

She’s on a quid vend and pays out a mystery amount of tokens. Had 2 goes myself and got £2 worth and £1.60 in my 2nd egg. Decided to quit whilst ahead! There’s a golden egg in there too which I think is the jackpot egg. Nice blast from the past!

That's pretty cool tokens as prizes rather than plastic rings etc!
Wonder what's the jackpot prize in 1 of the eggs?

Oh yeah she speaks all the time - I actually LOVE her! Such fun and for me fills my face with joy just having the honour to be in the same building

The other one, names Aunt Sal with have prizes in - it has been a long haul with the other one which had been outside and the water had swollen and eaten the wood and the board, but I spent ages on her and she runs now just need to finish her off so she can be presented to the masses

Who’s a pretty boy then
I like the sound of money, here comes your present, thank you - mind how you go
Would you like a present?

So many quirky phrases - I love it.

The other bird had to be washed 5 times in my washing machine to bring her out to look nice, she will be put back together in the week

Gotta love the Parrots and all those phrases.
Proper retro fun that is sadly missed at every
seaside arcade....except Bognor of course🤗
Hope they are a massive success Dave.

Love it, will be sure to have a go on this when I'm next up there.

I'm sure many improvements/changes have been made since I was in Bognor a few months ago, so will look forward to next trip.

I love all these classic games from the past, it what its all about and brings such great fun memories.

Pure nostalgic class, well done for getting it up and running and fab idea to have token prizes for the arcade. I bet has been a huge success for holiday makers and locals alike.

Ive been watching a fair few of the recent YouTube videos from Bognor, the background sounds are amazing from all the amusements. Can’t wait for my next trip to experience and enjoy all these machines in person. Im going to try avoiding any fruits for the first hour so I can actually enjoy all the other offerings for a change

Polly has paid me a total of £5 from a £10 outlay. Guess I was unlucky, still a great addition and will still have a few more quid in her for some more tokes haha

Crikey that’s terrible luck! “I love the sound of money” at least she’s honest lol. Be interesting to know what’s in her golden eggs! Will have another bash myself next time and hopefully find out

Tbh its about the phrases she throws out--In no order at all
Speak to me, hahahahahaha.
Hello, would you like a present?
I like the sound of money
"wolf whistle"
Heres your present, enjoy your present/day (not quite sure)
Mind how you go.
Must be a few more but enjoyed the experience, shame didn't see anybody else have a go.

It's not about really the amount you can win from aunt sal but moreover the thrill of using her in 2019 and not knowing what you are going to get in the egg ! Never mind Geoff better luck next time .
Good idea there al as the other alternative amusements are good  fun like the bowling game and horse derby .

My last visit I spent most of  my time in the Reelfruits over 18 section and missed out on everything else. Determined not to make that mistake next time with so many great amusement on offer.

I also love the skee roll bowling game, not that I’mvery good at it lol
