Personal Introduction
« on: 16 April, 2011, 01:14:41 »
Well, my name is Al, I'm 26 and live in Wolverhampton with my partner Zoe and our two daughters. Some of you may already know me from the old Mr P's forum!

I got into machines from a very early age, in fact my earliest memory of fruit machines is watching my Grandad play them in the Pub, and being fascinated by the volume of Tokens he was collecting out of them.

Fast forward 20 odd years and I now only enjoy playing the old machines (this is generally pre 2000 machines) My favourite era would be the early 90's when arcades were full of JPM's, Maygays, Barcrest and BWB's to name but a few.

My only involvement with newer machines is literally a couple of quid whilst in a pub, which lasts all of 10 seconds on most occasions. This is why I like the older tech so much better, your actually get some amusement for your money, well most of the time! :)

I did used to own two machines which you can see in the Personal Machine Collections Topic, which I regret selling now. Unfortunately I don't have the space at home to have my own collection any more, however hope that one day that will change.

Thanks for reading.....please post you own introduction if you haven't already and I look forward to speaking to you in the forum.

Cheers
Al
