Just a photo of my new addition to my current Elvis sit down machine -: Announcing my new Bar Top Astra machine!

Works perfectly, just set it up with all the DIP's as I want them, going to give it a good old play now!

Yeah it was the one on eBay, went down and met the chap and got it for less than the £450, really nice seller too very helpful etc. Lived about a mile away from me which couldn't have been more convenient lol!

As pocked sized as it looks, its bloody heavy!!!!!

Noticed it had a turned down offer of £300 on ebay.

Can It be switched to £5 JP?
I reckon on £5jp 20p play it would be a killer game.

Don't forget to post some videos of it in action.

It will do any of the following -:

£5 Jackpot at 20p, 25p and 30p a play.

£15 Jackpot at 20p, 25p and 30p a play.

I think you need a different prize/stake key for each setting, I've got the keys for 25p/£15, 20p/£5, and 20p/£15.

I'm currently using it at 25p/£15, which is the way I'm going to keep it! Percentage is set at 84% as it was much too generous at 94% when I got it, and didn't play anything like it does in the arcades!

I'll see if I can do some videos soon!

I wonder how much the machine is actually worth?!

Here is another picture of the machine, turned off so it can be seen without loads of reflections on it! Just got to sort out the slightly rusty payout tray, other than that its pretty much pristine!

The eBay description says it just overflows into the innards of the machine.

Wonder how much the hopper will hold. I'm guessing it's &pound;50 odd with it auto paying at &pound;50.

You'll notice I said I got it for LESS than that! :-)

I also didn't actually want the three player as its too big.

The eBay description says it just overflows into the innards of the machine.

Wonder how much the hopper will hold. I'm guessing it's £50 odd with it auto paying at £50.


The hopper holds £125 (but you can switch it to £200 if you want, its done via a dip switch and the hopper will hold that much if you want it to). It auto pays at either £50, or 5x the jackpot, depending on what you want it to do. Or of course you can have direct payout where it will pay each win as you get it!

The eBay description says it just overflows into the innards of the machine.

Wonder how much the hopper will hold. I'm guessing it's £50 odd with it auto paying at £50.


The £1's go into the hopper, once the hopper is full any remaining pound coins (and all other coins at all times) go into either the "smash chute" which is a tube which dumps coins into a "base" (i.e. the black wooden thing that these machines normally sit on), or you can have it dump them into a cashbox located inside the machine. The coins don't just land everywhere and cause problems!

Noticed it had a turned down offer of £300 on ebay.


I got it for less than that ;-)
