🙂 the game format has unfortunately been done to death and not the best example of it (imo). At those prices I'm sure you'll find a buyer, though.

Jon=jpm... stupid spell check 🙂

Hi Justin. Jon and ace games in the 90s to early 2000s were some of the best games in my opinion. Which games do we have you to thank for?

Welcome to the forum.

Hi Nette,

Sorry to hear about your grandad.

You've definitely picked the right forum for questions. There's an expert for every era of fruit machine here. It'd be great to know where you are located and a list of games you have. If anyone is local maybe you'll gain some new customers!

Anyway, welcome to the forum.

I don't know about the battery. I think others will comment, but I think generally they are removed and put on a fly lead. Will leave for others for details.

It's a really good game on 25p. One of my favourites I think. Let me know what you think of it and maybe some pics or a video? :)

Is the beer guide on/switchable to 20p+?

Personally I'm not a fan. Plays like A lot of modern games.

On 10p it's truly pathetic too.

Beer guide is a great machine on 20p+ and a decent %.  5/10p version I find a bit slow, but that's true of a lot of games.

This is a classic game IMO.  Sound effects are good, theme is nice, a handful of skill features and plenty to discover if you've not played it before.

At 100 I'd say its also a bit of a steal.

Welcome Colin.

I haven't been to skegness for many, many years.  I remember going to the butlins when I was young there when they were full of 20p/6 token road hogs, hot rods, ace coin machines and a few maygay classics like monopoly and screenplay.  Is there anything left worth playing that way?

That looks an awesome machine, pacuk.

I think the 80's JPM's are some great games.  I remember playing a similar machine named money mine (2p play, but there was a 5p version that went by a different name which I can't recall).  And another with cards in a circle that was a hi-lo -- ace was both hi and lo.  The games were really playable and pretty simple to understand too.  You could have a pop on any of these having never played them and stand a chance at a game and maybe even winning a couple of quid.  Compare that with Alien.... 80 for a board or win of any kind when dead and probably the same again before anyone normal could just rock up and have a chance of anything over a fiver.  What's left of fruit machines now are definitely more about gambling than amusement.

Does anyone know if ReelFruits has any JPM's of this vintage?  Perhaps a mk2 each way nudger? :)  Last one of those I played was on the isle of wight.  I'd forgotten that it paid out all in 10p's :)
