Another amazing day today.
It was the turn of Reelfruits.
Wow! Cannot believe how quick the
day went,it was fun.
Nice to meet so many people and some
of our forum members who braved the
early starts for a great time at the arcade.
We even got DJ lineup to spin some tunes🤗

I managed to do a load of videos which
are now uploaded for your enjoyment.

I started playing later rather than sooner
having other things to do lol.
But I played most of the usual suspects
that i always go for
First was Nudge Nudge Wink Wink.
Having played the mpu5 version the day
before,i  ventured onto the original mpu4
for 2 early jackpots.
Played on Nickelodean,JPM Five Liner
Project Sevens above,Jackpot 7s,777 Heaven
Match of the day,Open the box,Road Hog,Adders
& Ladders,Only Fools and Horse,Showtime Spectacular
Big Bucks,Andy Capp,Big Brother,Super Streak mpu4,
Astra Celebration, Bullion Bars,Magic 10,Bar X Ten
Sevens & Melons,Red Hot Roll,Vegas Nights,Hot Rod
All played fairly.
Super Streak offered me a jackpot first go and gave me a red streak for about £16 shortly after..
Won 50 quid on colourama wheel which was amazing 🤗
Had lovely curry n chips and the drinks kept flowing,and Dave as usual running round like a headless chicken lol😆
Such a perfect host,but hey....
We already know this👍👍👍

Our train journey back to Bognor turned into a near nightmare with our train missing our connection
at Tonbridge due to late running!
We had an amazing chat on the train which made the time fly tbh.

Third party tomorrow(today lol) at Bognor.
So looking forward to this one too.
Will do another write up later on my way home.
If you can make it,you wont be disappointed 🤗

Happy nudging chaps😊

Ok,what else can I say about today
you ain't already heard before?

The party day at Bognor Regis started of very well
for me.
After what I thought was a great breakfast at Spoons.
We opened the arcade bang on time to waiting nudgers outside and the buzz began.
Met up with a few familiar faces and some new ones who seemed to recognise my voice from my YouTube channel lol.

Played on lots of machines as per usual and did a couple of vids and clips which are now uploaded.

Got around £64 streak on Blue Moon.
Had jackpot holds on Hit the Six.
Line Up proved very entertaining too as per clips in one of my videos lol.

Had around £40 of tokens in my pocket at one stage
from the Projects.

Some other games I played were viva Las Vegas Six.
Had an end of feature repeat twice.
Andy's Great Escape which played surprisingly good on
20p/£10 and managed an early jackpot.
Got to end feature on Rovers Return  for a Jackpot + £3
on a short session.
BFM Party Time gave me quite a few balloon bonuses
mostly £3 repeaters and one jackpot.
Played on Tuppenny Nudger,Rollercoaster,both dead tbh.I think Coaster had a hiding earlier!
Played Nudge Bonanza again.
Love this quaint game set on 10p/£6 that plays quite fair.
Big Shot and Grab the Bank were also played.
Played Hawii for the first time as well. the Elvis Pushers that had me humming to some of the tunes.
So i had about a tenners worth of fun and won a bag of tokens cotaing £3.20 lol.
It was my intention to go into the big boys area a bit later in the day as I spotted a Project 8 Times cash in there which came from Newport,and i loved playing that one back there .
But I became ill early in the afternoon.
Without going into graphic details,I had to run to the railway station early and only just made the toilet.
It sounds funny now but i was in there for about half hour and only just got my train.
So,sorry for my rapid exit Dave.

That aside though,i had a fantastic day that ended a
most momentous weekend all in all.
I'd like to say a massive public thank you for this weekend,its been 'reel' fun and so glad I was abled
to attend.
Feeling a lot better now,but I have starved myself for it.
Should be back to 100% after some sleep.

I dont know how Dave does it,but he does and good on him and Amelia for all the enjoyment they provided for us fruit nuts out there.

On a final note for the weekend.
Chatham I always thought wouldn't be my bag tbh,but was pleasantly surprised with the games i played which all played pretty good.
Reelfruits has been a long time favourite,and it was nice to still play some 80s games there amongst all my favourite 90s etc.
It was fantastic to be back after a long overdue visit.
And finally to Bognor,by far the best arcade in the UK as it has a bit of everything.

I'm trying to persuade Dave to work on an SRU machine which will be so right for a seaside arcade as well as another one or 2 mpu3s hint hint🤗

Anyway,thanks again team. You are amazing🤗








Btw,it was lovely to see Amelia for the first time over the weekend parties.
Both Amelia and Dave right on top of things

I set off around 05:30 Saturday morning, and had an uneventful and leisurely drive down to Kent. Stopped at beaconsfield around 08:00 for a McDonalds breakfast arriving at Maidstone for 09:30.

Bumped into Dave and Lineup Chris on the walk in and by 10am there were already an handful of people awaiting the official opening of the doors.

Started off on Barcrest Revolution, maxing the bank at £40 even without a top feature or Jackpot. Was regularly offering £5-£7 wins from nearest win with some creative nudging of the reels. Party Time Player 1 behind was also being played on Auto mode and managed a nice little profit on these 2 which was a great start to the day
Super Streak was next with a disappointing £3 from a Red streak, but did give a Jackpot on refusing hold after nudges, a £17 mixed streak and a huge £32 mixed streak.

Astra's Ring the Bell was in good spirits maxing the bank at £50 with a few £10 tops thrown in, and Castle Revoultion for a first time play which gave some good entertainment.

Had a blast on Player 1 & 2 on Vegas nights with limited success, but luckily dropped a £1 in player 2 later in the day as I was passing and it did a £26 top from a £1 win!

Astras Stampede and Riverboat Gambler were next with a few Jackpot features on each whilst i enjoyed a complimentary Fish and Chips (Thanks Dave} followed by The Streak & Crazy Fruits Casino and Tuity Fruity.

Over the course of the afternoon then played a little more casual with machines including Bear Streak, Jumping Jack Flash, Arabian Nights, Sphinx, Hot Rod, Five Liner, Street Fighter, Jungle Jive and Match of the Day to name but a few. Also struck lucky on the Colourama game, with my number coming up to play and winning £25.

8pm came around in no time and as the lights turned off it was time to head back to the car for the long journey home.

It was great to not only catch up with Dave again, but also see a number of friends including LineUp Chris, Geoff, RicKing and Jackpot Bro's to name but a few.

Having not visited Reelfruits since June 2018, with my last visits down south all being to Bognor it was great to go back to Maidstone and enjoy all the great machines on offer.

All in all a fantastic trip, thanks to Dave for the drinks, lunch, generous promotions and providing such great amusements for us all to enjoy.

Nice trip report Al.

The day started off on a promise
but it did go quiet after dinner.
I was asked by someone to turn the
music right down as I think he was
trying to do a video of a machine which
was near one of the speakers.
I informed Dave of this and he says  it's not
even loud. After seeing who it was i was told to
leave it as is.
I'm sure we had some undesirable players there tbh.
Gamblers only there to take as much as they can win.

I think Reelfruits is a lovely arcade and would hate to hear of any abuse by players only there on the grab!
We only play for the amusement and have no woes in losing as we always get a fair game.
The fact I won £50 on colourama,I told Dave
"I promise I am going to spend this at the arcade"
I actually changed the notes to coins and went on some machines I dont usually bother with just to spend it.
The most important thing of all was I enjoyed it because of what it is.

I think the only one that lost on the day was Dave tbh.

Which is very sad,but he is committed to what he does.
And he does his best so that we enjoy it.
On the train back to Bognor saturday night,i could see
he was so exhausted.
And we talked about the future and Bognor which was his big dream that he Hope's will be the success he deserves. I so hope so mate.
As Carly Simon once sang....
Nobody does it better comes to mind.

You have all our Hope's and best wishes.

Chris , agree with what your saying , but a lot
Of modern players only play to win , unlike us
Who go to RF for the memories of the old days
We understand we are playing for fun, and not
For the raise 👍

Great report guys, didn't do the full day so tried to play as much machines in a 5 hour slot
Walked thru the doors around 10.20 and already the tunes were spinning courtesy of dj lineup!
Met some forum members (ric,al etc) as well as youtubers (jpot bros, reelworld fruits I think?)that were there and had made the journey down, Dave was rushed of his feet but still provided a blinding coffee and £5 freeplays which started on spiker the biker-no eye flash but small wins there.
EastEnders gave a 7s jackpot followed by a walford jpot on the board, adders n ladders lots of boards but the dreaded 5 starts were relentless-mostly snakebite or roll even grrr.
got a quick jpot on the streetfighter--even showed chris how its played but we were unlucky on the fight features after  :D
Played various games in between, highlights were super soccer giving a jpot repeat, pyramid giving silver key and repeating, popeye hidden holding £5blue bars and big bucks hi lo hiddens doing a £15!!--I struggled with big brother which did play pretty well but costing for boards and bonus not going higher than add again--think it had streaked oh well lol. Its not about the money, its playing for fun.  Lunch was huge piping hot chix n chips and then playing off last tokens before saying goodbye--A big thanks to the team and to all I met there, will be down before xmas for another punt for sure.
I must have missed the incident with the speaker volume, you will always have one or more who spoils it. Mind you was a bloke on andy capp who was swearing a bit--was that him??
Distance no object when it comes to playing at reelfruits and Mr P's :)
