#332733 Triple 7 Cab for personal use

Posted by Taylor525 on 16 December 2020 - 03:48 PM

Hi all, it's been a while since posting, so hope all is well.


I've been thinking about buying a triple 7 cab (mpu5/6) with the (would you call) 'modded' version where you can have around 30- 40 games installed for real play.


I was wondering if anyone owned one and could tell me their thoughts on having one?


Pros, cons, what to look out for etc?


Thanks in advance

Does this help? I used to have it. Also I may have an image of 35 jpot decals

I used to have the maze attraction reel... bloody can't find it as I see that's what you want. Incase you make 35, it uses the 70 reel as 70 said jackpot so pac man could be the same

#295151 Versions

Posted by Taylor525 on 23 November 2016 - 02:53 PM

I know that there are different variations of 'ROMs' when they were made (maybe updates) I was trying to think of an example, but a good example is Adders and Ladders arena. (On the £5jp version) On one version, credit takes as you press the start button, the other takes credit after the reels have spun. The second one that I mention plays tighter (IMO) than the other. 



To be fair, unless they open the machine, you don't actually know what the machine is set to, it could display '78%' on display, but be set to 70%, visa-versa. Also, what the machines 'current' % is at! An arcade in Blackpool opened a few years ago and they set their machines really high (in this case Carousel was at 88%) 2 years later, dropped it to 82%. 82% is still respectful, but not it its clawing back the money (they don't reset if you change the percentage). Saw this through the glass.


I have an Empire Tomb Raiders, and is set to 78%, but is playing much less (about 64%) and never goes on one.

Thanks. I was literally 5 when this was out in the arcades (one in Southport I remember well) didn't play it, just remember my mum playing it. All the same, amazing to play it now

#293953 The new £1 coin

Posted by Taylor525 on 13 November 2016 - 12:53 AM

Cheers for the info. Looks like we'll be using mixed for the 6months period then in a years time change the coin mechs again to not accept the old one.

Thanks for that thread you posted too. It's usually the small buisness type arcades that have the best machines!!

Fruity Addict - Where is this arcade in Blackpool??


Harts, Bispham... Empire is £25 jackpot (there's a £5 version in Cleveleys)

Hi there, you have done the right thing and snipped the battery off for sure! Now, if it has leaked, then the chances are that its leaked on to the board. Epochs are notorious for that and I've had plenty of experience in the past myself. If so, the main board will need a repair, but buying a new one may be a better option. The picture that you have posted does look like there could be damage, but I'm really unsure. A full picture of the main board would be better, so we can see better around the battery area. 


There are a few good people on here that will help you with the board, I really can't remember what the board fully looks like, and where the battery normally goes, as I don't deal with these any more.


If you know that the Simpsons is a fully known working, then you could swap the board, but if you're unsure how to do that, you're probably best not doing it. Make sure the machine is fully unplugged first though! If you do it, it will answer some questions for yourself

#278867 deal or no deal

The original is the best, and always will be... (although I did like DOND Road To Riches) The newer they are, the worst they are, especially today's!

#247482 Dimensions Please?

Posted by Taylor525 on 06 February 2013 - 01:15 PM

Thanks for the replies.. I went on MR P's youtube and saw that they have the same machines there, I was trying to compare them next to the genesis 1 cab, but they were round the other side, so was hard to tell.. I'm pretty sure that they are smaller in depth, but the same height and width. Its mainly for my dad as its his birthday soon, and I know he likes it, so thought why not.. Should hopefully be a good surprise... I also tr but its so hard to find machines like that online.. And tried finding pics of them next to other machines, but not much luck there.. Everything should be fine tho

Posted by Taylor525 on 24 December 2012 - 12:16 PM

With only 7 days to go, have you made one yet??


Or did you make one for 2012 and stick to it??


Or do you just simply not do one, because you are simply hopeless of keeping it...!





Mine- Stay off ANY B3 machine............. I failed all 3 of mine last year, pretty much in the first week as well.



-Merry Christmas to everyone on Fruit Emu too!!
