#311361 Baking fruit machine boards in the oven...

Posted by aaamusements on 21 November 2017 - 11:27 PM

Indeed, every article I've read states that DIY reflow is a method of last resort for a board which is otherwise beyond redemption...

But seriously gas mark 8!! (do people still have gas ovens??)
That's around about 230 degrees centigrade which is enough to mess up a number of types of plastics, and goodness knows what else on a board.

Dont fancy a massive Toblerone for £57 then


Why do they sell massive Toblerones in airports?

They won't let you on a plane with blunt nail scissors, but they're happy to sell you spiky, heavy chocolate in the rough shape of a club right there in the airport?

Excellent news.

Facial tattoos often tend to ring alarm bells, but the old swastika on the forehead really does SCREAM lunatic...

Although the PayPal payment went through it unfortunately failed to automatically update your account.
It was difficult to then identify your payment due to the name on the payment having no similarity to the details on the site account, neither were the emails similar. So I struggled to immediately upgrade manually.
However your account was still successfully upgraded within 20 minutes.

Thank you for supporting the site.

So it'll be £50 then... we all know where the money is being made, by both gaming companies and government taxes

 

Yes that reflects my own cynical viewpoint on the subject!

 

We all know that the relatively new Machine Games Duty was set up more or less specifically to make sure that a bigger slice was taken from the massive amounts that are being raked in by these machines.

Hi all

 

An update to this post.

As I previously stated in my replies to this post a consultation is currently taking place whereby the dreaded FOBT may be reduced down to a maximum stake of £2.

Here is the update on the BBC website.

I'll wager it won't though, as the limit being considered might range between £2 and £50.

Changing coin mechs and the costs of dealing with cash are also tax deductible business expenses for any legitimate operation.

I'm surprised Trump hasn't tried to blame it on Hillary.

He can't easily blame Obama, who was only a couple of years old at the time.
Although there is that episode of The Simpsons where Maggie shoots Mr Burns...

I've ended up with 4 old one pound coins which I didn't manage to spend before the end date.

I plan to put them in a British Legion Poppy Appeal box as soon as I see one. Perhaps you could do something similar.
