To follow on from this thread I picked up 2 machines yesterday one was a jpm roller coaster not the one in the vogue cabinet but a slightly newer one and an ace pot of gold both working and on new coins and in excellent condition and for an added bonus no money exchanged hands.
Love a good Ace.. As long as that battery is off the MPU as ( i suspect you know they are reknown for easilly breaking the boards)

No money!!! :eek: Jealous now!

Is that the more recent remake version? Almost a 90's Barcrest looking cabinet?

That's literally daylight robbery. How do you get these deals? Happy to discuss privately!

Back-pedalling slightly - the one on eBay was working, and sold by a relative of Mr P’s, but he’s a bit f’d off about the whole inflated prices of these things right now so pulled the other auction for Indiana Jones which was also going silly. Personally I wouldn’t pay that, it’s nuts! In context, I bought 2 Big Bucks about 5&7 yrs back for about £30-£50 each, both working and in great shape. Had to sell when space was an issue and kids arrived. Didn’t want to but such is life!

Your gf's sisters friend's Nan’s one will almost certainly have Processor and Motherboard damage from a leaking Varta battery. That’s about £150 to replace in the current market. Can’t see if the glasses are in good nick, but let’s assume not. £20 is still a bargain.

He cant talk - he has warehouses of rare stuff.

Going back 7 years or so, I went to pick up something unusual... Unknown to me at the time he also wanted it... I picked it up... wanted to find out why it wasnt working, and ended up going to him to ask (as all roads led there)... he realised it was the same thing he was looking at and basically whilst he had the technology to help, he refused to because his nose was out of joint and he didnt get it.
People make him out to be a good guy - he's just selfish.

More Big Bucks stuff! They’re the reels out of my top wanted game. JPM version too, not Crystal.
I think I saw your games room on FB then. I’d would’ve also ask for them if I’d known! Did they need reel 3 by any chance? Can’t find your FB post now...

Big Bucks was an awful game, Big Banker and Rollercoaster were the best 2 in Vogue cabs by far

I respectfully disagree. I also had Big Banker and Bucks got the most play by far due to the exchange strategy and redlines. Banker had a lot of cool features built in too. Roller coaster was shallow in comparison, but a bit like Addams Family it was very common and had some good audio.

Maybe there was an emptier for Big Bucks and I always caught it cold, I just got no enjoyment from playing it ever. I'll ask my mate Alex if there was an emptier as he tends to know
