Yes its been well looked after , no the battery has not been wired off the board as i am not very good at that sort of thing but im keeping an eye on it as the machine is 20 years old now , yes they are small so ideal for a games room or bedroom , i got this one off e bay but ive never seen another one for sale since so very difficult to get hold of!!

Good to know, but you're giving my OCD the jitters by saying the killer battery is still on there! Maybe someone can help you get it sorted? Preservation teamwork.  

 

The old photo links don't seem to work anymore, then again it has been many many years, so would you be willing to post some more - or just PM me with them, please? 

 

Got a little spot on my desk for a Bar-top, ideally Ready to Roll, but like you say they don't pop-up very often at all. Apparently Astra scrapped hundred of them years ago... the fools.

My mistake - the newer images are working fine still, it's the older 2012 images that don't work.

I’d love to buy this one day… so neatly packed! Perfect space on my desk for it, so PM me if/when that day comes, please! 

 

Big thanks for the photos.

How come XXX only paid £2? The prize decals suggests XXX is worth £5.

 

Maybe a prize dip setting is wrong, or maybe the software rom version doesn’t match the prizes on the decal??
You don’t see any ASTRA wins in the video so I can’t tell what prize that’s actually offering. 

but I’ll have a guess…

 

e.g.

 

£2 for XXX’s

£5 for AAA’s

£15 for JJJ’s

Hi , yes you can change a dip switch and it changes the payouts slightly ,, I've changed it back now so it pays out what's it says
