Hiya Peeps
« on: 20 November, 2014, 14:50:47 »
Hello Everyone

I am from the New Forest. I used to play fruities in my youth back in the 70s 80s 90s  I bought my first fruit machine back in the 90s a Maygay Cluedo Super Sleuth. I sold that and purchased an old JPM machine Moneybelt. Not my favourite but at least it was JPM I owned this until 2011ish when I turned it on it went up in a cloud of smoke and all the loom melted, (it was far more than a cloud of smoke....never seen so much). I then sent the remaining serviceable parts to a fellow enthusiast. I really left the scene in the early 2000s though, rejoining only yesterday.

A warm welcome to Classic Reels mate.

Looks a lovely machine, such a shame its no longer with us.

Any desire to start a collection again?

I would love to but since divorce I now live in a small rental and haven't the room. The older machines are becoming so rare. I hate the 70 quid jackpot machines. I far prefer the days of 2 or 3 quid jackpots. even the 10 quid jackpot. and the old 30-100 club machines.

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 :)

Welcome PAC, a nice machine that, I've mentioned before, probably the only thing missing from reel fruits, is a gud old Jpm, a eachway nudger, lite a nudge mark 2 would be fine, spent many 10 ps on these over the years, great fruits.
There was a double deluxe mark 2 there at one point but is in store now.
I'm making a crimbo trip to reel fruits in a few weeks, and looking forward to having a gud classic fruit bash.
