Good Afternoon all, I might be going to Blackpool for my first ever time this summer, I'm just wondering and would please like to ask if anyone here has been there recently and just how is it exactly?

I'm a big fan of High Tech machines, I don't really like Lo Techs, the last time I went to Great Yarmouth they had hardly any High Techs and it was just Bullion Bars and Party Times everywhere :( So I was thinking of giving Blackpool a try, would you say it is better than Great Yarmouth? I've seen a few pics and the place looks huge, bigger than Great Yarmouth? I just want somewhere to go that has some Hi Tech machines and not 10x Bullion Bars in each arcade :(

Big Thanks to any information at all, much appreciated

Hi FT90,

 

I've traveled to gt Yarmouth over 20 times in the last 2 years specifically to visit the arcades on business.

 

sadly i have to tell you, seaside resorts are just not the place to play hi-techs anymore. as time goes on, what is left will be replaced with the ex-pub DOND clones.

I've also visited blackpool. and whilst they are really geared up for the seaside trade, its a similar scenario. all the old hi-techs really are old.

 

if its value you want, you can stiull find them in the seafront arcades, but if you do like a good punt on a hi-tech, stick to pubs.

 

hope that helps

Thanks so much for the replies, Nails when you say old Hi Techs do you mean like the JPM Rollercoaster era or a bit later such as Barcrests Space Raiders and clones
and Extreme Gaming Most Daunting and clones type?

Personally I'm not keen on any Hi Techs with a Jackpot over £35, that's when it all went down hill for me so don't really play in pubs and I just want that seaside feeling back, but as you say if it's Lo Techs and DOND at every seaside then that really is a shame.

Just want a good few Barcrests and Extremes and not Bullion Bars in every arcade, Tommy you say there is a lot of Hi techs at Coral island, do they have Barcrests etc or is every single one of them DOND?

Thanks guys

Unfortunately due to all the taxes these days most arcades are going over to more and more ticket redemption games and also multiplayers for the pure reason they do not have to pay as much tax. Fruit machines are getting less and less common. If you want to travel take a trip to the Isle of Wight and visit both sandown pier and shanklin amusements these are still crammed of all brilliant retro and also low and high tech machines. Deffo worth a trip!

Blackpool is alright for some gameplay but spending too much time there is not good as I have experienced by going there 30+ times within less than 2 months :/

 

But Cleveleys On Thorton (Olympia Amusement) has recently been alright since they brought it up to scratch but still has the good ole Party Games (10p) but moved the Party Time Bingo to 25p a go (£25 JP) with all party times (standard and double decker) to respective £25 / £35 Jackpots. and still has the gold rush on 10p a go.

 

Has the rare occurrence of 'Rob Da Bank' machine in which I played and it was alright but didn't win much in the end!

 

But Coral Island is full of DOND / Bullion Bars type clone machines but to be honest has the good selection on all newer machiens on 10p a game on community but it set of only 3 machines near Bullion Bars (Reel Em In, Rainbow Games, etc) since they are supposed to be updating all the other community ones to match them.

 

I dislike the new Golden Game has the first time I went on it only got £1 board? yeah...pretty much sums up why I rarely played them.
