Re: Future slot machine auctions poll

The supply of sellers machines 20 and the sellers and buyers amount to 21! I would guess that 3 times this quantity would be required to run a viable auction. I would have thought the appetite to run an auction would have been higher. Steve at the Elephant house seems to be be going down the “tech”...
