No idea, but it always makes me laugh when you see a fruit machine with the start button flashing away in the background on either Eastenders or Coronation Street, or someone pretending to play it when it is obviously in attract mode.

And have you notice in coronation Street the pub background sounds, the fruit machine sounds like either blue moon or sunset Blvd or a mpu4 machine from the early 90's even if someone is a playing it the machine still makes those sounds.
They still have a Del's millions machine in Ian's chippy on EastEnders too.
@cashbox the machine you mention looks to be called Sapphire!!

I love 'The Sweeney', it was and still is a brilliant cop program. After 40+ years, the manual PMBX switch board at the' nick', the telex and having to look for the nearest phone box to speak someone who's not on the R/T, does make

it look very dated !!!!

 

SHUT IT!!!!!!

Most of the machines I have seen on the TV when in the background have Cancel and Start flashing, obviously in open door mode and waiting to see if you want to read the meters
