Has Flash The Cash Harry ever been released? Looking for this everywhere but can't find it. It's a BGT Lo Tech similar to Max A Million but with a cashpot.

No, nor has Max A Million.

 

I don't believe the tech they run on is emulated.

That's a shame. BGT Hot Slots was another good game.

BGT made some very good games - a lot of the same people were at Maygay, Mazooma and other places. Good pedigree of staff.

The lead artist at BGT has been around the industry and did a lot of other games we would all remember; he is now at Barcrest/SG. Nice bloke and a great artist.

 

BGT's hardware was the one thing that let it down. BGT was funded by Spain's biggest (at that time) gaming company, Cirsa. They gave BGT all the hardware and cabinets (remember the "piano keys" cabinets??) and the main problem was that the software code was all written in Spanish! So it was hard for the English guys in Cannock to understand it all....but they did, eventually.

 

The cabinets were never acceptable to pub companies, the PCB-based lamp boards were a pain to work on - the UK is very different from Europe in that regard. So BGT never really sold any machines into pubs, and eventually Cirsa pulled the plug.

 

Ron Bastin ("Big Ron"), the man behind BGT, died a few years back now.
