Classic machines found in Blackpool
« on: 12 January, 2012, 20:21:51 »
Hi Guys,

On NYE we went to Blackpool of all places for the day, something about nice walk in the fresh air and some Fish & Chips.

Anyway did look in a few arcades and found the usual rubbish however did find two places of interest.

1) Pleasure Beach - there is a small arcade here right next to the main entrance. Unfortunately was closed on NYE however did spot a JPM Big Banker on what appeared to be 10p 6 cash.

2) On Dale Street (http://www.prizebingoblackpool.co.uk/index.html) I found this little old arcade. To be honest it was more like a little holiday park arcade however it did have a great little collection of classics. From what I remember the machine of note were:

i) BFM Big Breakfast
ii) BFM Del's Millions
iii) BFM Cash Explosion
iv) Maygay Gladiators
v) Maygay Fight Night
vi) Maygay Super Pots
vii) CoinWorld Bear X
viii) Electrocoin Bar-X

Also has some other machanies but more early 2000's. Was great to have a little game on some classics. To be honest think most were on poor percentages however still rather play these than more recent rubbish.

Just wanted to share with you all in case you were ever in the area and in need of a classic fix

Blackpool is a WICKED night out..

I went with a few lads oer 10 years ago....WOW is all I can say! Many beers were drunk I can assure you!

As for the fruits the punting was mega as we were a group of gamblers, all met through machines (PERFECT)!

Things may hae changed on the fruit side, but I imagine the nightlife is still as great.

I didn't do the tower, it is relatively small to be honest. I did go on the big dipper though!!!  Not ideal with a sore head! ;D

Sorry for late reply mate, been well behind on the forum recently.

Have you booked a hotel yet for your trip? WHen you going?

To be honest don't know Blackpool all that well. Obviously the Pleasure Beach is worth a trip if you like theme parks, though not sure if it will be open when you go.

The Chip shop at the back of Coral Island arcade is Ok, and I've heard the Blackpool Tower is worth a visit.

Anyone else have any tips for a visit to Blackpool

Blackpool is on the cards for me sometime this year!! Do like Blackpool apart from the drive as it takes me 4+ hours from Essex!! Have not been for 10+ years, was only 15 at the time and I remember I got rinsed on a 5 Scorp 4 Big Breakfast, well 20 but that was a lot of money to me back then!! lol.

I used to love Blackpool in the good old 'tokens' days...   90's era.   We took a massive road trip  and ended up in Newquay for a few days...   wow, what a trip that was.   Fond memories of a time when fruit machines were fun to play.

From what many have said there are a lot of sharks up there these days...

When I say sharks I mean FRUITY SHARKS! lol!

Ok so we all keep an eye out on what is worth a punt but if it is anything like Brighton then forget it! lol!

When I went I bumped into 3 professionals, they were good lads mind.

HOPEFULLY there are some good bits up there as I wanna go up too. It would be a shame to go all that way for Deal or no deals....

As for Newquay, my oh my...yes fond memories for me too there. Love it. Took Mrs P there for a planned day visit but stayed for the week in the end. Wicked place, I love it. I always walk by the cliffs too to take in the gorgeous scenery. This normally happens when I have gone skint in the arcades! LOL! 8)

The only bad point if you go by train, the station you need to change at is Par. My that is one boring place to be. Two pubs, a fish and chip shop I have yet to catch open and houses, houses oh and some more houses!

I spent 4 hours there once as it was HEAVY snow. The pub opposite is ok, bit clicky, but the beer was good  :D

I like Newquay too, just a great seaside town, shame the classics have gone down hill. Last I knew there way only a JPM Monopoly on 5p 5

I cannot quote either,

Yes it was that heap mate! What a pile of poo! I have NEVER had to walk away from a machine so quickly. Even though we were playing it with our money in the basement it was SHOCKING.

A great theme, superb audio....possibly the worst 'game' ever!

I hate this type of machine, there is just no interest for me.   15 jackpot, tight feature game, zero playability apart from the initial curiosity.

Hi

Many moons ago one of the arcades in my local seaside town of Redcar had this machine in on 10p/5 in and i took it for all in all 80 I walked away with, every feature was
either red invincible or it went to a fiver, the reels only give the chery win with one gamble up to exchainge, every time i did this it I got the jackpot off the board every time,
the bank used to pay out at 20 and i had this limit 5 times so i kept a fiver to play with and put the other cash in me pocket, by the time the machine had stopped paying
I had the 80 in my pocket a nice nghts play time

Regards

Cliff C
