#318543 FOBT Simulator.

Posted by fruitman69 on 09 June 2018 - 02:28 AM

I would have thought demo mode would have been a lot looser, as reel based machines are in door open mode. They must do this to encourage real play, making the unfortunate punter think "Wow these are easy to win on", when in reality the punter get drawn in to shovelling cash into them, eventually having the shirt sucked off of their backs.



Its actually against the law for demos to play different or enhanced on demo play. They have to play the same as if it was real money, for that very reason.

Hi All,


I would just like to let people know about a not so main stream charity that does a great job and has helped my partner lately due to being diagnosed with breast cancer at a fairly young age.


This charity gives people special days to give them and there families some happy memories to cherish forever.


We always like to give back but due to current circumstances we are not in a position to personally, however if any of you can spare a £5'er to this less known charity that would be awesome.


We set a target to raise of £100 which has already been raised but i think that is not enough and really want to get it a bit higher.


My partner does not know i have put this on here ( she might even kill me if found out ) but im hoping to raise a bit more for her as a surprise so that she can give more to this charity that helped us take a special break with our son to make some very nice memories.


She currently has had all the treatments and has been given the all clear for now but has to have meds for the next 10 years as a minimum.


Here is the just giving page to make any donations, please give what you can it will all add up.





I hope Alex is ok with this given his recent health issues but if not he can remove it.



Thank you all in advance!!


Steve P

#314625 Alarm Problem (HELP NEEDED)

Posted by fruitman69 on 11 January 2018 - 03:27 PM

On OFF alarms need to be left on for up to 10 mins to clear it  depending how many triggers its had.  ( the alarm sound silences after 10 secs or so )


If you keep switching it  on and off again when it alarms your just making it worst on the on/off count.


if after you have cleared it it keeps coming on it will most likely be a faulty PSU as someone else has said.

#307517 Monopoly and Party Time versions

Posted by fruitman69 on 15 August 2017 - 04:49 PM

Surely the feature board having a pc inside it is just a program running the top board
So where exactly is this pc in these games as partygames is basically a JVC TV for the top board



The PC is / was in the bottom of the base unit of where  the screen is.

As prices vary so much you just cant put an exact price but I would expect you could pay anywhere between  2.5k and 3.5k  for one with 8 games and MPU6


My mate sold his a while back now with 14/15 full games, MPU6  for 4.1k which i felt was about right at the time maybe even a tad low.



Some could argue that they are only going to go up now they are going to get rarer with SG getting as many back as poss to convert to timed licences.


On the other side of the coin you also have to bear in mind that although these machines seem a lot newer, a majority are using quite old tech that will have undoubtedly been recycled a few times, eg  MPU5's and the PSUs.


Although you can backup HDD's you still have other things like PC PSU and motherboards going down etc and of course the LED driver boards.


So these are not like normal machines and can be expensive to keep running, and historically operators could be retiring them via other markets that don't let them fall into the conversion route so know one really knows how values are going to be affected overall, its all down to what you want to spend on a hobby machine.


Agree or disagree that's my few pence worth to hopefully help people make a decision on a future purchase or sale. :)
